Last year Beyoncé and Jay Z made $80 million dollars. What's staggering is that she made more than him. And she's not the only woman bringing in more than her man.
Forbes released its list of highest paid celebrity couples and not only did Bey make $500K more a concert than Jay on their respective tours, she took in more than him, even with his stake in the Nets and the Barclay's Center, both of which he has had to unload. The second biggest earners were Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen with $80 million. She earned $4 million more than he did, and that is with a $30 million singing bonus that doesn't come every year. The secret to her success? Her line of flip-flops, the scourge of good taste everywhere.
The others on the list Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie with $50 million, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis with $35 million, and Kimye made $30 million. Forbes didn't let us know who the breadwinners are in those families, but we can guess.
