Hip hop extraordinaire Jay Z and his sexy songstress wife, Beyoncé Knowles, take the top spot again this year on Forbes Magazine‘s Highest-Earning Celebrity Couple List. For the period of June 2012 to June 2013, the estimation of the dynamic duo’s wealth is a haul of about $95 million.
Forbes, which publishes their famed celeb wealth lists annually, arrived at the monetary amount for Mr. and Mrs. Carter by interviewing agents, producers, managers and other business people associated with the pair of stellar performers.
According to Forbes, Beyoncé outdid her husband with regards to earnings this year because of her sold-out ongoing world tour, “The Mrs. Carter Show.” The concert grosses an estimated $2 million per show. Reportedly, Beyoncé earned $11 more than her entrepreneurial hubby this year.
The young Mom also has successful businesses, with her House of Dereon line of clothing and accessories as well as her line of fragrances.
Jay Z, who has the Midas touch, racked up dollars from his 2011 album and tour, “Watch the Throne.” He also sold his stake in the Brooklyn Nets NBA team. ‘Hova’ took a walk on the wild side as well over the past year and started his own sports agency, Roc Nation Sports, making some aggressive moves in the athletic world, signing greats such as the NBA’s Kevin Durant and the NFL’s Victor Cruz.
Jay Z also has a stake in such superstars as pop singer Rihanna and British singer-songwriter and actress Rita Ora.
Just in case you’re wondering, new parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made the list around the No. 5 spot, coming in at about $30 million.
