And the highest earning celeb couple is...

20 September 2013, 11:34

Los Angeles - Beyoncé 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 $95m together in the financial year June 2012 to June 2013, after their tours, businesses and endorsement deals saw them rack up $17m 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 $1.4m a night, while Beyoncé - who took a year hiatus after giving birth to Blue Ivy in January 2012 - earned $2m a night for her current The Mrs Carter Show world tour.


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

The supermodel out-earned her partner by $4m 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 $50m 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 $7m for his Chanel no 5 advert last year.

Forbes Highest Paid Celebrity Couples 2013, top five:

1. Beyoncé and Jay Z, $95m
2. Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, $80m
3. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, $50m
4. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, $35m
5. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, $30m
