Ed Sheeran Dethrones Adele, Emerges Richest British Star Under 30

Published

The 28-year-old Shape Of You hitmaker has almost doubled his wealth over the past year, with his mammoth earnings taking him from $121 million in 2017 to a staggering $218 million, according to Heat magazine’s 2019 Rich List.

The majority of Ed’s income came from his two-year-long Divide Tour, which is the highest grossing tour of all time. Meanwhile, thanks to his impressive songwriting skills, the star has sold a staggering 150 million records worldwide.

The star also raked in royalties from tracks he’s penned for stars including Justin Bieber, Rita Ora and Anne-Marie.

Adele’s departure from the top spot sees her leave the list altogether – as she’s now 31 and no longer qualifies for the run-down.

Instead, making up the list is Daniel Radcliffe, with much of the 30-year-old’s $115 million fortune coming from his years of playing wizard schoolboy Harry Potter in the movie franchise, while former One Direction star Harry Styles, 25, is worth an impressive $82 million.
