Jay-Z and Beyonce are Forbes Highest Paid Couple

Jay-Z and Beyonce are Forbes Highest Paid Couple


Beyonce and Jay-Z top Forbes highest paid couple list.

The king and queen of the Hip-Hop scene have dethroned last year’s number one pair, supermodel Gisele Bundchen and NFL all-star Tom Brady, putting them in the number two spot this time around.

Speaking of thrones, Jay-Z’s Watch the Throne album and concerts with Kanye West helped him bring in somewhere around $38 million. Plus sales of his Decoded book, his nightclub endeavors, and the money from the Roc Nation record label assisted him in bringing home the bacon.

Wait a minute, before you think he rules the roost. Take note, it’s his wife Beyonce who is top dog when it comes to the money though.  Sponsorships, along with album sales of 4 and royalties from her other music helped bring in around $40 million. This may surprise many since Bey even took a break to care for their daughter Blue Ivy. If you did the math, that places them at a net-worth of $78 million.

Coming in a close second were Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady with $72 million, former Spice Girl Victoria and soccer stud David Beckham took third with $54 million, power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie came in 4th with $45 million, and the blockbuster king Will and his gal Jada Pinkett Smith came in 5th with a steady $40 million.

Looking at that list, even fifth place seems like a winner.

So it’s official, Blue Ivy Carter is the luckiest kid in the world!


About sunnymenagerie

Socially awkward in most situations most 25 years olds would call easy, that’s me. TV is my soul mate, Music is my mistress and writing is my best friend. Without those three things, I’d be in an insane asylum calling myself Rosa Parks, refusing to sit in the back of the so called bus. I know more about pop culture and celebrities than I do about my family history, and I’d like to keep it that way. Words I live by: We´re all tiny books in one big compilation called life. Some of us will wait for what seems like forever for our climactic part to come. Others will have a romance novel their entire life. Or maybe one filled with just adventure. Or one that is a poetic tragedy. Then, there are those that will have best sellers. You know, the ones that everyone wants to read and base their versions on? Don´t forget the little paperbacks sold at the carwash that only a select few will ever lay eyes on. We´re all born with the power to either take what was written for us or choose our own adventures.
