Last year, Sean "Diddy" Combs didn't even make the list of the 20 highest-paid celebrities. Since that time, the 48-year-old rapper has been having a run of amazing luck in his life. Last year, he topped the list of the highest-paid musicians and highest-paid celebrities with a staggering $130 million in earnings.
Diddy is known for being a rapper, but really he is a savvy businessman. He racked up his nine-figure income with his Ciroc vodka sponsorship, stakes in DeLeon tequila, Revolt TV, and Aquahydrate alkaline water.
His Sean John clothing line brought in a $70 million payday this past year when Global Brand Group acquired a majority stake in the company in November 2016. Diddy currently owns about 20% of the company that has almost half a billion in annual sales, worldwide.
The "Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour" also earned Diddy significant cash. The 26-stop arena tour commemorated the 20th anniversary of Bad Boy Records and featured Diddy alongside other artists including Usher and Jay-Z.
Diddy has a net worth of $820 million. If he keeps up the high earning deals, it isn't out of the realm of possibility that Diddy could become a billionaire.
