Jay-Z and Beyonce earned $122 million together between June 2008 and June 2009, more than any other couple — married or unmarried — in entertainment.
The list makers at Forbes are at it again, this time determining Hollywood’s top-earning couple.
Beyonce and Jay-Z beat out the competition not only by churning out hit songs but also by attaching their names to Budweiser, American Express and a host of other brands. In this relationship, the wife out-earned the husband, $87 million-$35 million.
Partners Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are third with a combined $55 million, thanks to “Wanted,” starring Jolie, and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” starring Pitt.
Rounding out the top five are married couples Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith ($48 million) and David and Victoria Beckham ($46 million).
