Beyoncé and Jay-Z Among Forbes’ Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples

Jay-Z and Beyoncé

Money ain’t a thing for Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Music’s most powerful couple ranks second on Forbes’ Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples list.

Mr. and Mrs. Carter earned an estimated $72 million between May 2010 and May 2011, placing them at No. 2 on the magazine’s list. The “Run the World (Girls)” singer hauled in $35 million due in part to her Deréon clothing line and endorsement deals with L’Oreal, DirecTV, VIZIO, and others.

As for her other half, who recently topped Forbes’ Cash Kings list for the fourth time, his earnings come from a $150 million Live Nation deal, investment in the New Jersey Nets, 40/40 Club chain, and ad agency Translation.

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and NFL superstar Tom Brady take top honors with a combined $76 million. Rounding out the top 5 are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt ($50 million), David and Victoria Beckham ($45 million), and Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart ($40 million).

    The king & queen. They woulda been #1 if bey didnt go on break. She still made millions doing nothing while ‘others’ were everywhere & still made less than her lol. Gotta love it.

    @t, did you not read the post? beyonce has the dereon cloths, and projects with loreal, directTV, and Vizio. beyonce did alot last year she just didn’t release any music, and even if she had released music it wouldn’t of boost her pay enough to get the top spot 4 took a month to sell 1 million world wide.

    @isabella!, You are forgetting about the album tour, appearances and other projects that go along with an album and bring in more money. Money that Bey earns when she has an album out is not based solely on album sales. If one or both would have had an album out and accompanying projects they would have been number one.

    @isabella!, Beyonce does 100,000 things at once . She easily can can gross $87 Million like she did a few years ago . Don’t discredit her capability .

    @jay_scorpio,

    I am not a fan of Beyonce, but Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt combined dont even make half of what Beyonce makes in a year when she is really working. Stop the hate and stop overrating Angelina and Brad.

    Congrats to them! I expected to see Will & Jada up there as they usually make it each year. Love them as well!

    Meh at Gisele & Tom. I always thought her looks were overrated but congrats to them too.

    @SumthinLikeFire,

    100 % co-sign Gisele is not beautiful she is overrated just like Rohan Marley’s new brazilian model girlfriend Isabeli Fontana. Both average at best.

    I love this couple and I’m glad they got that money in the bank,but they could give back some money to alot of charites. And when they do give money, it’s not alot!!! I mean they got millions of dollars! They could help alot of the starving people in this world and to think that it’s the people out here struggling that are making them rich!!!

    Hail to the free world and a new order! (holds triangle up over eye)

    I get so turned on by the power…makes me want to piss on a bum or slap a starving child then eat a huge meal right in front of their face HAHAHAHAHA! I love my money, I would never share it.

    [Reply]

  28. Mason for free

    instead of concerts, fans of this duo should have automatic payments deducted every 2 weeks and wired over to Beyonce’s team…that’s true dedication!!!

    Real fans would understand! Besides, they could do so much MORE with our money than we could! I enjoy giving her $300 or more for a concert, I know she will use my money wisely and pay for her cars and hair. And then, Beyonce and Jay-z can have sex on top of all the money they made from her faithful fans! I worship them, I would love to be their maid or servant.
