Beyonce, Jay-Z are top-earning celeb couple again
They earn more than any other celebrity couple and what’s more important, Beyonce seems to wear the pants in the family earning twice as much as her rapper/producer hubby.
Forbes has released their annual list of Top Earning Hollywood Couples with the B-Jay-Z family coming first for the second consecutive year.
In 2008 the singing duo also topped the list with astounding $162 million in their celebrity pocket. Last year that was marked by financial crisis brought them $40 million less – $122m all in all through everything from music to movies to apparel to fragrances to pro basketball.
Worth noting that the couple that came second in the list, Harrison Ford and his long term fiancee Calista Flockhardt (#10 in last year’s list), earned $69 million in 2009, almost twice as little as Knowles and Jay-Z. They rank second thanks to Harrison’s $65 million paycheck for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Brangelina came third with combined $55 million, while Nicole Kidman and husband Keith Urban end the list and sit at number 15 spot with $17 million.
Check out top 10 best earning celebrity couples of 2009:
