Beyoncé And Jay Z's Yearly Earnings Will Blow Your Mind

by Rebecca Martin

Beyoncé and Jay Z have been named Forbes magazine's highest-earning couple, thanks to some whopping earnings last year.

We always knew that Bey and Jay lived like a King and Queen – holiday on a yacht, anyone? But seeing that figure on paper in black and white has made us feel a little lightheaded. Ready for it?

Between June 2012 and June 2013, Beyoncé and Jay Z took home $95 million. That's £59 million. And breathe. This means they've raked in more than even Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.


The stars have had a hugely successful year, what with Jay Z's Watch The Throne album going platinum and Beyoncé's Mrs Carter World tour grossing around $2 million every night. Not bad for an evening's work, right?

Forbes compiled the list by speaking to managers, agents, producers and industry insiders, but didn't take into account any taxes or agent fees, says the magazine.

Beyoncé and Jay Z earned $15 million more than Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, who ranked at number two on the list, bringing in $80 million from June 2012 to June 2013, while Brangelina only took home $50 million. Only.

Now how many handbags could we buy with that? We'll leave you with this…
