Music and entertainment moguls Jay Z and Beyonce have no need to watch the throne as they top Forbes‘ list of the highest-earning celebrity couples for the second year in a row. The power duo earned an estimated $95 million between the two of them from June 2012 and June 2013. With one album, two world tours, and a plethora of other business including a sports agency, fragrance collection, and clothing line, the couple certainly have kept busy this year to earn almost $100 million. The list, which bases its estimates from talks with managers, producers, and other industry insiders, combines the earnings of each celeb in the couple as determined in Forbes‘ Celebrity 100 list.
Making a combined estimate of $80 million, New England Patriots football star Tom Brady and supermodel/ part owner of Brazilian footwear company Grendene, Gisele Bundchen take the number two spot on the list.
Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt place third with a combined $50 million. Former That ’70s Show co-stars and current couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher brought in a combined $35 million. Rounding out the list is Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, who raked in an estimated $30 million, which doesn’t take into account earnings from West’s latest album Yeezus, which dropped after the list cutoff date.
What dynamic celebrity duo do you think, PopWatchers, will make the No. 1 spot next year?
