Beyonce And Jay Z Tops Forbes’ List Of Highest Earning Couples
Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z have been named the highest-earning couple as far as show business is concerned.
The powerful pair, unsurprisingly topped Forbes magazine’s list of wealthy couples with joint earnings of a reported whooping £49 million over the last 12 months thereby beating last year’s No. 1 couple, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen and her American football star husband Tom Brady, second position.
Beyonce reportedly raked in more money to the kitty than her rapper entrepreneur husband by pulling in an estimated £25 million from sponsorship deals, album sales and royalties from her back catalogue, while Jay-Z is said to have made a close £24 million.
Brits David and Victoria Beckham came in third place with £34 million ahead of Hollywood stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, with £30 million, and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, with £25 million.
