Jay-z and Beyonce

We always knew Jay-Z and Beyonce were a power couple in the entertainment indsutry, but Forbes just made it official. The dynamic duo were recently named the highest paid celebrity couple in the entire world, so how much are they worth exactly? 

It seems like Beyonce is the breadwinner in the family as in the last year she earned $40 million thanks to her album 4 as well as her other business ventures such as her fragrance and clothing line. Hova, on the other hand raked in slightly less than Bey, earning $38 million thanks to his Watch the Throne album with Kanye West as well as other business ventures of his own (a.k.a the Brooklyn Nets, maybe?). Together, the couple earned a whopping $78 million in the last year, and have said to keep pushing for more now that they have baby Blue Ivy on board.

Beyonce and Jay-Z are the highest paid celebrity couple

So what other celeb couples made the list?

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen came in at a close second to Beyonce and Jay-Z with a combined salary of $72 million in the last year thanks to Gisele’s modeling career as well as Tom’s contract with NFL team the Patriots. The Beckhams, Victoria and David, came in third with $54 million, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie came in fourth place with a combined $45 million, and finally Will  Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith capped off the top 5 list by earning $40 million in the past year

Congrats again to Bey and Hova for being the most powerful celebrity couple in the world! Who’s your favorite celebrity couple?
