The “New Heights” podcaster’s latest milestone comes weeks after it was revealed his girlfriend, Taylor Swift, was officially named a billionaire.

The “Lover” songstress reached billionaire status after her Eras Tour became the first to exceed $1 billion in revenue, Forbes reported on April 2.

Her success was credited to her “earnings from the blockbuster tour, the value of her music catalog and her real estate portfolio.”
