Diddy & Kanye Don’t Make The Cut

Ye, formerly Kanye West, and music mogul, Sean “P Diddy” Combs, were sacked from this year’s billionaire listing.

Diddy first made the cut in October 2022. His stocks have plummeted amid countless sexual assault and harassment lawsuits. Consequently, Combs reportedly sold his stock in Revolt — a company he founded over a decade ago. Moreover, he said farewell to the liquor brand Diageo, contributing to the drop in his wealth.
