Who are the highest paid celebrities?

Katy Perry and One Direction have been knocked off the top spot of Forbes’ highest-paid celebrities list. Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao met earlier this year in a hugely-hyped boxing match, and now top the annual list with earnings of $300m and $160m respectively.

Perry and One Direction hold onto the next two spots with $135m and $130m each, so still not bad! Taylor Swift ties with Robert Downey Jr in 8th place with $80m each. Well, at least Swift and Harris made the top of the highest-earning celebrity couples list.
