Now, is anyone surprised by this? I’m certainly not. But Forbes went ahead and made it official. They’ve named Jay Z and Beyoncé the highest earning celebrity couple, between June 2012 and June 2013. They’ve estimated to have made a staggering $95 MILLION dollars. Woo! A couple that breaks the bank together, stays together!
Jay Z’s recent Watch the Throne album went platinum and launched a world tour that brought in $1.4 million per night in America. (Beyoncé) Knowles, who took a short break when her daughter Blue Ivy was born in January last year, was back with a vengeance this year with her Mrs. Carter world tour, which grossed an average $2 million per night.
And that’s not even counting Jay Z‘s investment in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and his business venture with Roc Nation Sports. The couple in second place, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, are trailing by $15 million. Racks on racks on racks!
