The Russian billionaire owns a $90 million (£59 million), 70-acre estate on the Caribbean island and the hip hop band will perform for guests seeing in 2011 there, the New York Post reported.

Earlier this month Mr Abramovich took delivery of the world’s largest private yacht, the 543ft Eclipse, which is installed with an anti-paparazzi shield consisting of infrared lasers.

But the Chelsea owner has decided to hold his party on land, as he did last year. His estate in St Bart’s includes swimming pools, pavilions and bungalows with ocean views for guests.

Those invited will join Mr Abramovich, his girlfriend Dasha Zhukova, 29, and their one-year-old son.

Mr Abramovich also saw in 2010 with a New Year party on St Bart’s for 250 guests including Orlando Bloom, Jay-Z, Kanye West and Lindsay Lohan. Beyoncé performed and the cost of the party was estimated at several million pounds. [via The Telegraph (UK)]
