Ed Sheeran has been named as the UK’s richest musician under the age of 30 according to Sunday Times Rich List for the second year running after he reportedly increased his wealth by £40 million
The 29-year-old is the richest musician in the UK aged 30 or under, with a wealth of more than £200 million, according to the list.
In December 2019, the singer-songwriter announced he was taking a break from music, after a busy two years in which he married his long-term partner, Cherry Seaborn, and completed his record-breaking Divide Tour. His Divide tour broke U2’s record to become the most attended and highest-grossing tour of all time.
Before then Ed Sheeran had played more than 250 shows to more than seven million fans since March 2017.
Second on the Sunday Times Rich list is Harry Styles, followed by Niall Horan in third place, Louis Tomlinson in fifth place, and Liam Payne and Zayn Malik in sixth and seventh places.
Pop group Little Mix are fourth and Sam Smith is eight. Stormzy, with a wealth of £20million, is in ninth place alongside Rita Ora.
Dua Lipa and Goerge Ezra are both in 11th place with £16million each.
