It pays to be a couple in Hollywood today, but no more so than for Beyoncé and Jay Z who’ve been named the world’s highest-earning couple for another year, according to Forbes’ 2013 chart.

The power duo lands the top spot after accruing a combined fortune of $95 million between June 2012 and June 2013.

So where did it all go so right? Aside from Jay Z’s platinum-selling album, Watch The Throne, both stars embarked on world tours and respective festival headline slots.


Clearly a man of many talents, Jay Z also has a stake in New York’s indoor arena the Barclays Center and recently launched his own sports agency, Roc Nation Sports – which has some of America’s biggest athletes on its books.

Beyoncé continues to run her own fashion label, House of Dereon, as well as maintaining a fragrance line.

Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady were hot on their heels with a joint earning of $80, while Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ranked third with $50 million. Surprisingly, relatively new couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis bagged the fourth place after earning $35 million between them.
