The singer made headlines in September when he was spotted shirtless with U2 guitarist The Edge on a beach in Ibiza.

The bandmates were vacationing on The Edge’s superyacht CYAN, which he purchased with pals in 2008 for an eye-popping £12m.

They were seen with Bono’s best friend Guggi (real name Derek Rowen) on the 140ft yacht, which features six cabins and accommodation for 12 guests.
