Hip-Hop power couple Beyonce and Jay Z were just named Forbes Highest-Earning Celeb Couple for the second year in a row. The duo earned a combined $95 million between June 2012 and June 2013. According HipHopwired:
Hov hit it big with he and Kayne West’s collaborative Watch The Throne album and a world tour that netted him $1.4 million per performance.
Not to be outdone, Beyoncé and her recent “Mrs. Carter Show” world tour pulled in a gross of $2 million at the gate. There’s even more cash coming towards Hov’s direction after selling his minority ownership in the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets and reportedly gaining $1.5 million for his share of the Barclays Center.
And as reported, Jay had to rid himself of the ownership stakes in the Center in order to keep things legal with the launch of his Roc Nation Sports agency. Beyoncé also keeps several streams of revenue jumping with her House Of Deron clothing line and a fragrance collection.
Plus, rounding out the Magazine’s top three highest-earning couples list are Hollywood stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie who earned an estimated $50 million; and Tom Brady and Gisele Brundchen who earned an estimated $80 million.
