The magazine says the US artist formerly known as Puff Daddy brought in NZD$190 million from June 1, 2016, to June 1, 2017.

Forbes says Diddy's Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, a stake in Ciroc vodka and the $97m sale of one-third of his Sean John clothing line all contributed to his earnings.

Number 2 on the list is Beyonce, with $145m in earnings. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling brought in $132m. Rapper Drake and Portuguese soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo round out the top five.

Last year's top earner, Taylor Swift, dropped to No. 49. The singer brought in $60m, down from $235m.
