Several [url=]Reshad Jones Jersey[/url] celebs with ties to the Philly area have been raking in cash over the past year, as Forbes’ “World’s Highest-Paid Celebrities” list for 2017 shows. Published this week, the list runs [url=]Ryan Tannehill Jersey[/url] down the 100 top-earning celebrities of the last year, using data from a time period of June 1, 2016 to June 1, 2017. The total income listed amounts to about $5.15 billion — more than the GDP of Gambia, Liberia, and Belize combined, Forbes reports. Topping the group[url=]Matt Darr Jersey[/url] of Philly-connected celebs on the list is New Jersey’s Bruce Springsteen, who took 17th place with some $75 million earned between June 2016 and June 2017. Berks County native Taylor Swift, who previously took the number one position in 2016 with $170 million earned, trailed Springsteen distantly, taking 49th with $44 million earned. Jon Bon Jovi, meanwhile, took 80th place, with $35.5 million earned. Behind Bon Jovi [url=]Mario Williams Jersey[/url] were Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox in 93rd ($33.4 million) and North Philly native Kevin Hart, who tied with country artist Jason Aldean for 98th at $32.5 million for the year. Forbes last year named Hart the highest-paid comedian in stand-up, earning $87.5 million between June 2015 [url=]Kiko Alonso Jersey[/url] and June 2016. The comedian was the sixth highest-paid celebrity overall on last year’s “Highest-Paid Celebrities” list. No one from the Philly area took the top spot this year. That honor for 2017 belongs to rapper Diddy, aka Sean Combs, who earned $130 million over the past year, according to Forbes.
