I can reveal HARRY STYLES earned £105,000 a day last year thanks to the runaway success of his hit album Harry’s House.
It included the single “As It Was,” the best-selling single of 2022, which certainly proved to be a huge boost to his bank balance.
The startling figure was revealed in financial documents filed with Companies House this week.
In total he made a profit of £38.5 million, with assets from his music empire now totaling over £106 million.
What’s notable, however, is that this latest figure doesn’t include the additional millions he earned on his stadium tour. These figures are expected to be announced later in the year.
A music insider said: “Harry is now one of the most profitable men in music.
“The numbers speak for themselves. He is absolutely motivated and his career is still on the rise.
“When One Direction split up, there was uncertainty about how the members would fare as solo artists.
“But Harry has more than proven his worth. He’s making more money now than ever before. The numbers are actually difficult to understand.
“But he has worked really hard and dedicated himself to music over the last few years. The proof is in the pudding.”
It’s a testament to Harry’s skill and hard work that he has become such a money-grabbing star.
But one man who always saw the potential is another high earner, billionaire Jay-Z.
The rapper, who also has a successful management company, said he could imagine where Harry could go as early as 2016, shortly after 1D’s split.
At the time he said: “Harry doesn’t need any help exposing.” Everyone in the world knows who he is.
“But he has to make the transition from being part of a group to being an individual artist.
“I can get him to work with the bigger artists and producers and make him the biggest artist in the world.”
I bet Jay-Z is upset that he didn’t become his manager now.
Rami’s fast-paced new love life
RAMI MALEK’s ex-actress Lucy Boynton has moved out with a musician just as he confirmed his relationship with Emma Corrin.
Lucy, who I revealed split from her Bohemian Rhapsody co-star Rami last month after five years, is now dating aspiring singer-songwriter Murdo Mitchell.
The new couple were spotted kissing and cuddling in London’s Soho on Thursday after attending the premiere of Helen Mirrren’s Golda.
News of their new romance comes a week after Rami was seen publicly kissing The Crown’s Emma.
It feels like they’re trying to prove to each other that they’ve moved on.
But whether that is actually the case is a completely different question.
Beverley is on the edge of Hollywood
BEVERLEY KNIGHT has just released her ninth studio album – but her sights are also set on Hollywood.
I’m told the singer has been in talks with major film studios.
They were impressed by her acting skills in the musical Sylvia, for which she won an Olivier Award earlier this year.
A source said: “Awards like the Oliviers are on the radar of Hollywood bigwigs and Beverley’s success has not gone unnoticed.”
“Several high-profile producers and casting directors have contacted her team to encourage her to make films in the US.”
But Beverley, whose album “The Fifth Chapter” came out yesterday, wants to make it big on Broadway in New York first, with the goal of winning a Tony Award.
It would be stupid not to catch her.
Cold, hard tour money
HARRY STYLES isn’t the only one to benefit, with Coldplay recording £114million in sales for their Music Of The Spheres tour in 12 months.
The marathon series of shows, which was expanded to include further dates across Europe and Asia, resulted in a £32 million payday after deducting the £82 million cost of staging the performances.
The money was disclosed in accounts belonging to the band’s company, Flock of Birds Touring.
Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion will split £30m of that between themselves – £7.5m each.
They will rake in millions more because the revenue only includes revenue for 2022, not revenue from subsequent shows or record sales.
Retro Katy has put on a blinder
Check out the well-heeled Katy Perry going back to her old look.
With this long dark wig, the Teenage Dream singer recalled her first entry into the music business in the noughties.
Wearing a pair of candy cane heels, she launched a new shoe collection at her shop Katy Perry Collections.
But it’s not just fresh designs she’s been working on.
Just days after it was confirmed she would be guest-starring to mark the 20th anniversary of children’s show Peppa Pig, Katy was spotted arriving at a music studio in LA.
A new album is long overdue, considering it’s been three years since the release of their last record, Smile, which didn’t have a tour.
Tom in the doc dash before the golf gig
HE’S a true professional, so fans didn’t know Tom Grennan was taken to the doctor.
The singer had a check-up before taking the stage at golf’s Ryder Cup opening ceremony in Rome on Thursday.
He had become ill just hours before his performance.
A source said: “Tom has been on a roll lately and when he arrived at the Ryder Cup he suffered food poisoning.
“The bosses wanted to make sure everything was OK before he took the stage, so they ran him off to see a doctor to check him out and take his blood pressure.
“He was super professional and still managed to put in two great performances.”
Although Tom doesn’t release his third album “What Ifs & Maybes” until June, he’s already back in the studio.
He wrote on Instagram this week: “Lately some studios are finishing at 5am and we’re just getting started!
“I can’t express how excited I am about this new music.” Tom previously opened up about his work ethic and how he’s inspired to push himself.
He said: “I think when you slow down it’s hard to get going again.
“I’m at a point where I’m still trying to build. I’m still fighting and trying to get better, so no slowing down.
“The label said ‘no pressure,’ but I’m the one putting the time pressure on myself.”
However, it sounds like he needs some rest at the moment.
MILEY CYRUS is already working on a follow-up to her eighth studio album Endless Summer Vacation.
Her mother and manager Tish revealed the news during the Sorry We’re Stoned podcast, which she shares with her eldest daughter Brandi.
She said: “There’s a song that Miley wrote that’s going to be on her next record and it’s so beautiful, pure perfection.”
Despite dominating the charts all year with the hit single “Flowers,” Miley kept a low profile.
She’ll be back in the spotlight sooner than we thought.
BRITNEY SPEARS has hit back after sparking concern by dancing with knives in an Instagram video.
She had to undergo a police welfare check after someone close to her asked for support.

Britney played down the latest drama, saying: “I know I scared everyone with the last post, but these knives are fake – which my team rented from the Hand Prop shop in LA.”
“Nobody has to worry or call the police. I try to emulate one of my favorite artists, Shakira, a performance that inspired me.”
