U2 frontman Bono is now a billionaire.

The 55 year old has just edged out Paul McCartney as the world’s richest pop star and it’s all thanks to an early investment in Facebook.

Back in 2009, Bono bought a 2.3% share of Facebook for nearly $76 million through the investment company he cofounded.

Today that venture has became a $1 billion pay off which means Bono has pulled in more money thru the social media company than his entire decades-long music career.

McCartney’s fortune totals $818 million, with Madonna coming in third place at $582 million.
