According to Forbes magazine, musical stars Beyonce and Jay Z made more money this year than any other celebrity couple, making them the World’s Highest Paid Couple after raking in a combined $78 million between May 2011 and May 2012.
Beyonce made a whopping $40 million despite taking a nice long maternity leave after the birth of her daughter. Hubby Jay Z followed close on her heels with $38 million, a majority of which came from album sales, a concert tour, his makeup brand and his holdings with the New Jersey Nets.
The rich couple take over from last Year’s winners Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen.
