It’s the ultimate earnings battle of the biggest celebrity power couples! ‘Forbes’ magazine just released their list of the highest earning celebrity couples — and did the Carter or Kardashian-West household claim the biggest earnings between June 2012 and June 2013?
Any way you look at it, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Jay-Z and Beyonce are extremely rich — but if you wondered which celebrity couple is the richest — you’re in luck! Read on to find out which couple brings home more bacon.
Jay-Z & Beyonce Made 95 Million This Year
Does it surprise you that the Carters made 95 million between June 2012 and June 2013, making them the highest-earning celebrity couple, according to Forbes magazine? It shouldn’t — Beyonce, 32, is nicknamed “Queen Bey” for a reason! Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne tour brought in about $1.4 million per night? That’s chump change when you look at his wife, though — Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter tour raked in $2 million a night!
They each have their own extracurricular activities, too. Jay-Z, 43, has his own sports agency, Roc Nation Sports, repping huge athletes. Beyonce has her own clothing and fragrance line that does extremely well — little Blue Ivy could learn a thing or two from her parents!
Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Made 30 Million This Year
Kanye and Kim came in fifth on the list, making 30 million combined. Kim’s first and largest source of income is, of course, Keeping Up With The Kardashians and other side endorsements, such as clothing and makeup lines, and spinoff shows.
Kanye has money coming in from his album, Yeezus, his Watch The Throne tour, owning restaurants and various other endeavors.
Even though Kim and Kanye made significantly less than Jay and Bey — 30 million isn’t too shabby, guys!
What about YOU, HollywoodLifers? Can you believe that Jay-Z and Beyonce made more than Kanye and Kim?
