Beyonce and Jay Z named highest earning couple

Sep 19 2013, 1:06pm CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z have topped Forbes magazine's World's Highest Paid Celebrity Couples list 2013.

The 'Single Ladies' hit-maker and the rapper - who also owns record label Roc Nation - took the crown for the second year running having earned a staggering $95 million together in the financial year June 2012 to June 2013, after their tours, businesses and endorsement deals saw them rack up $17 million more than last year.

Jay Z's collaborative effort with Kanye West, 'Watch The Throne', spurned a platinum selling album and a world tour which earned $1.4 million a night, while Beyonce - who took a year hiatus after giving birth to Blue Ivy in January 2012 - earned $2 million a night for her current 'The Mrs Carter Show' world tour.

The power couple earned $15 million more than Gisele Bundchen and her footballer husband Tom Brady who came in second place with combined earnings of $80 million.

The supermodel out-earned her partner by $4 million as her line of flip-flops with Brazilian label Grendene - in which she owns shares - helped double her wages from last year.

Meanwhile Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt earned a hefty $50 million despite the fact they do not own any large businesses.

The couple - who have six children together Shiloh, seven, Maddox, 12, Pax nine, Zahara, eight, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - pulled in the majority of their income from film fees while Brad Pitt earned a reported $7 million for his Chanel no.5 advert last year.

Forbes Highest Paid Celebrity Couples 2013, top five:

1) Beyonce and Jay Z, $95 million

2) Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, $80 million

3) Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, $50 million

4) Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, $35 million

5) Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, $30 million
