Beyonce & Jay-Z Are The Richest Couple In The World

August 8th, 2012 12:00pm EDT

Beyonce & Jay-Z Forbes magazine has crunched the numbers and determined that Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z are the highest-earning couple in showbiz.
Over the last 12 months, the musical couple earned a staggering $78 million combined. Their daughter Blu Ivy will certainly never be hungry. Or wear cheap clothing. Or attend public schools.
Beyonce took in $40 million all by herself from sponsorship deals, album sales and royalties from her back catalog, which includes albums such as "Dangerously In Love," "I Am...Sasha Fierce" and "4." I'm sure she's not regretting breaking up Destiny's Child. She's a powerhouse on her own!

Check out other wealthy couples on the list...

Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen ($72 million)

David & Victoria Beckham ($54 million)

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie ($48 million)

Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith ($40 million)
