Jay Z & Beyonce Top Forbes List of Highest-Earning Celebrity Couples
According to Forbes, Hov and Bey made an estimated $95 million during the year-long span of June 2012 to June 2013. This should come as no surprise to anyone following the moves of the hip-hop/R&B power couple, of course.
The two have found ways to diversify their revenue stream (and bonds, word to RZA) through investments like Jay’s now-sold stake in the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center. Beyonce, on the other hand, has her own clothing and fragrance lines.
Beyond that, they have also stayed with what works. Both embarked on high-grossing tours while Jay raked in some extra dough thanks to the sales of his ‘Watch The Throne’ album with Kanye West. We get the feeling we’ll see a repeat next year given the success of Hov’s ‘Magna Carta… Holy Grail’ and if Bey releases her new album? Game over.
Jay Z and Beyonce topped Forbes’ 2012 list, too, by raking in a cool $78 million. And, like last year’s list, they once again bested the earnings of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and super-model Gisele Bundchen.
