Mayweather, Clooney among world's highest paid entertainers

Forbes озвучил сотню самых богатых знаменитостей

Forbes compiled the 2018 list estimating pre-tax earnings from June 2017-June 2018, before deducting fees for managers, based on data from Nielsen, touring trade publication Pollstar, movie database IMDB, and interviews with industry experts and celebrities themselves.

Sean "Diddy" Combs and Beyonce, who topped the Celebrity 100 previous year, failed to make it back into the top 10 in 2018.

He has jumped 62 places from past year, and is ahead of the likes of solo musicians including Taylor Swift and Beyonce in terms of overall earnings.

Forbes reported that Mayweather, 41, topped sports highest-earners after banking $275 million dollars from his cross-combat superfight against mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor in August 2017.

Oscar-winning star Clooney earned an estimated US$239 million after selling the Casamigos tequila company he co-founded to British spirits company Diageo in June a year ago. The actor is said to have taken home $239 million from the sale, which Forbes says is the most he has ever earned annually in his career so far. She is 30 places ahead of her older half-sister Kim Kardashian West.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson nearly doubled his earnings from the previous year to land in fifth place with estimated earnings of $US124 million ($167 million). U2 also released a new studio album, Songs of Experience, in December of 2017, and kicked off a trek in support of the record in May. Waters is right behind GN'R at #28 after earning $68 million, mostly from his Us and Them tour.

The "Shape of You" singer is the only solo act in the top ten.

The world's 100 top-earning entertainers pulled in a combined $6.3 billion pretax over the past 12 months, up 22% from last year; eleven superstars crossed the $100 million threshold, more than double the number from the last two years combined, reports Forbes.
