Pete Doherty tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2015 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (July 22) that Doherty is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between June 2016 and June 2017, a nearly $50 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The British singer-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $245 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Doherty Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Hexham Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdoherty - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Pete) and a fashion line called “Pete Doherty Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Pete fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
