Jay-Z & Beyonce Are the Highest Paid Couple

Jay-Z and Beyonce have once again been named the highest-paid celebrity couple, according to Forbes magazine. The Carters have an estimated annual income of $78 million, which is Beyonce's $40 million and Jay-Z's $38 million combined.
Reportedly, Beyonce makes the majority of her money from royalties from her catalog, endorsement deals and other business ventures. Jay's high-grossing tour with Kanye West and several business endeavors (including ad firms and cosmetics companies) contributed to his wealth over the last year.
Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady enter at No. 2 on the list with $72 million, while David Beckham and Victoria Beckham nab No. 3 ($54 million), Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie come at No. 4 ($45 million) and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith round it out at No. 5 ($40 million).
