Topping Heat magazine's 2019 Rich List, the 'Shape of You' hitmaker sees the majority of his income coming from his 'Divide' tour in addition to royalties from songs he's penned for other stars.

Ed Sheeran has taken Adele's crown to become the richest British star under 30.
The 28-year-old "Shape of You" hitmaker has almost doubled his wealth over the past year, with his mammoth earnings taking him from $121 million (£94 million) in 2017 to a staggering $218 million (£170 million), according to Heat magazine's 2019 Rich List.
The majority of Ed's income came from his two-year-long "Divide Tour", which is the highest grossing tour of all time. Meanwhile, thanks to his impressive songwriting skills, the star has sold a staggering 150 million records worldwide.
Adele's departure from the top spot sees her leave the list altogether - as she's now 31 and no longer qualifies for the run-down.
Instead, making up the list is Daniel Radcliffe, with much of the 30-year-old's $115 million (£90 million) fortune coming from his years of playing wizard schoolboy Harry Potter in the movie franchise, while former One Direction star Harry Styles, 25, is worth an impressive $82 million (£64 million).
