The 10 wealthiest entertainers in the world

Three sports men, four musicians and a DJ walk into a bar. The barman celebrates.

At least, he would if the selected group of drinkers came from the following Forbes list.

The money-minded publication has updated its list of highest paid celebrities (don't worry, they're all "entertainers", not people famous for being famous), and the top ten makes for an interesting read. 

There's one novelist, proving that it's still possible to make money the old fashioned way, a radio DJ, a footballer - all topped off by a boxer who earned more in mid-2014 to mid-2015 than positions two and three combined.

Have a click through the gallery below to see how the earnings stack up.
