Ed Sheeran with $244M net worth beats Harry Styles and Sam Smith to become UK’s richest musician
Ed Sheeran is currently taking a break from making music, but that isn’t stopping his wealth from growing. The ‘Photograph’ singer's wealth of $244 million has placed him on the top spot of Sunday Times Richest Musicians Under 30 2020, which consists of all the musicians aged under 30, reports The Sun.
Sheeran has beat musicians including Harry Styles, Sam Smith, George Ezra among many others. Meanwhile, the members of One Direction have managed to acquire five of the top 10 spots with their staggering wealth. Harry Styles with $76.8 million takes second place, while Niall Horan stands third with $61 million.
Little Mix with $58.5 million comes next on the list of Young Rich List followed by the 28-year-old Louis Tomlinson with $54.9 million. One Direction’s former member Zayn Malik holds the seventh spot with $43.9 million, reports The Sun.
Sam Smith who boasts of $40.2 million comes eighth followed by Rita Ora and Stormy with $24.4 million each. George Ezra and Dua Lipa share the eleventh spot with $19.5 million.
Sheeran’s impressive net worth has also placed him tenth in Britain’s richest musician’s list which doesn’t consider the age factor. Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber and Sir Paul McCartney take the top spot with an individual wealth of $976.3 million.
Sheeran is currently residing with wife Cherry Seaborn in his $4.5 million Suffolk estate "Sheeranvill", as neighbors call it, which was bought by him seven years ago. He also owns a range of houses and mansions across the country, with the majority of them available for rent after he purchased property worth $12 million earlier this year.
A 16th-century grade II listed farmhouse is one among his many collections of houses. It is said to have a four-bedroom home and a bungalow, along with a pub with underground rooms which lead to the main house through a 6 ft wide tunnel.
He is also the owner of two properties at Covent Garden in central London. Commenting on Sheeran’s astounding wealth, an insider told The Sun, “The amount of money he’s invested in property is staggering, but it’s a drop in the ocean compared to the $732.2 million he earned from his Divide Tour. And it’s certainly a shrewd move to invest in property in the capital”
