The First Couple of Hip-Hop lands a major victory once again as Forbes crowns Beyonce and Jay Z the highest-earning celebrity couple from June 2013 to June 2013.
It’s been a very lucrative year for both artists as Hov released his eleventh studio effort Magna Carta Holy Grail in July and embarked on a summer tour alongside Justin Timberlake. Bey traversed the globe for her Mrs. Carter Show, averaging $2 million a night. Factor in Jay’s Roc Nations sports agency and stakes in Barclays Center and it’s no surprise why Blue Ivy’s parents reportedly raked in a total of $95 million.
Bey and Jay beat out football star Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bundchen, who sat on a comfy cushion of $80 million, as well as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt who charted at no. 3, with a combined $50 million. In order to compile the list, Forbes spoke with managers, agents, producers and other insiders to calculate an estimate of each celebrity’s entertainment-related earnings.
