He has already smashed the record for the most made money in a single year - but he isn't stopping there.

Ed Sheeran is said to be poised to become a billionaire before he turns 30 in just two years.    

The chart-topping pop star - who turned 28 in February - has already amassed an eye-watering fortune and has millions rolling into his bank account each week thanks to the success of his Divide tour which has reportedly seen him earn close to £500 million so far.

Ed is expected to earn more than £100million over the next three months of his money-spinning tour, meaning he'll surpass U2's record of £579.35 million made during their 2009-11 run of shows. 

Reflecting on Ed's incredible success, music industry expert Mark Borkowski told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: 'The man who was busking on the streets is now a man who is going to be a billionaire. Above all, this shows just how potent live music is nowadays. 

'It's the one that generates the money. The music business has moved on with labels having to be more savvy and Ed clearly has a team that knows what it's doing.' 

PR guru Marcel Knobil thinks Ed's popularity can be linked to his humble persona and 'raw talent'.
