  • Written by NNPA News Service

beyonce jay-z-300Forbes has released its list of this year's highest-earning celebrity couples and that Jay Z and Beyonce have once again come out at the top of the heap.

Between June 2012 and June 2013 (the time frame established for the rankings), the hip-hop power-couple took in a combined $95 Million. The couple also topped Forbes' celebrity couples list last year.

Beyonce is said to have earned $11 million more than her husband did this year, thanks in large part to her Mrs. Carter Show world tour, with average grosses of $2 million per night.



Jay Z also had success on the concert stage. Much of his earnings came from his profitable Watch The Throne tour with Kanye West – who also makes an appearance on the top earning celeb couples list.

NFL star Tom Brady and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, came in at No. 2 on the list with $80 million in earnings. Brady's three-year extension deal with the New England Patriots included a $30 million signing bonus. Bundchen is the world's highest paid supermodel, with $42 million in yearly earnings.

Brad Pitt and Angelina rounded out the top 3, taking in an estimated $50 million.

West and Kim Kardashian came in at number five with $35 million.
