Bono a member of U2, has become the world’s richest pop star after raking in nearly £1 billion from his Facebook shares.

He bought a 2.3 per cent share in the social media network for £56 million in 2009 with the investment group that he co-founded, Elevation Partners. Today that share is worth a whopping £940 million.

Now Bono takes over Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney as the world’s richest pop star.
