It shouldn't come as much of a surprise which celebrity couple tops the Forbes list of highest-earning duos. The magazine estimates Beyoncé and Jay Z raked in an estimated $95 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013 to put them No. 1 on the list.
The magazine cites Jay Z’s world tour that brings in $1.4 million per night in America, while Beyoncé's The Mrs. Carter Show world tour grosses an average $2 million per night. Jay Z (a.k.a. Shawn Carter) is a part owner of the new Barclays BCS Center in Brooklyn and recently launched Roc Nation Sports, an agency that represents star athletes like Kevin Durant and Victor Cruz. Beyoncé has a fragrance collection and House of Dereon clothing line.
Blue Ivy could soon join the family business, the magazine predicts. Her parents have petitioned to trademark her name for the right to use it on anything from baby clothes to toys.
Other top-earning celebrity couples on the list:
- Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, $80 million
- Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: $50 million
- Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis: $35 million
- Kayne West and Kim Kardashian: $30 million
