August 6, 2012: Beyoncé & Jay-Z Top Forbes
Celebrity power couple Mr. & Mrs. Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter have topped the list of The World's Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples by Forbes. Together, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have raked in an estimated $78 millon dollars over the past year, $6 million more than last year's highest-paid couple, supermodel Gisele Bundchen and athlete Tom Brady.
The Carters are obviously very proficient entrepreneurs, scoring major endorsement deals internationally. In addition to endorsement deals, the couple also operates businesses of their own: Jay-Z is the founder of record label Roc Nation and Beyoncé owns Parkwood Entertainment.
Can you imagine the level boss-ness that would occur if they went into business together? Beyoncé and Jay-Z are reportedly worth $300 million and $460 million, respectively, or a combined $760 million dollars. Hmm..I see why the naysayers are mad. :)
