Jay Z and Beyoncé have topped Forbes magazine’s World’s Highest Paid Celebrity Couples list in 2013.
Beyoncé and Jay Z – 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.
The figures in the list show that the couple’s 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.
Meanwhile, Beyoncé – 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.
Beyoncé and Jay Z earned $15 million more than Gisele Bundchen and her footballer husband Tom Brady who came in second place with combined earnings of $80 million.
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen 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.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt pulled in the majority of their income from film fees while Brad earned a reported $7 million for his Chanel no.5 advert last year.
Ashton Kutcher and girlfriend Mila Kunis came in fourth place, while the fifth spot was taken by Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
While Kanye West had earned his half mainly through his Watch The Throne tour, Kim Kardashian earns an estimated $10 million a year through filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians and her various spin-off ventures.
Noticeably absent from the list was Victoria and David Beckham.
