I’m sure this don’t come as a huge surprise to anyone but Jay Z and Beyonce came in at the number one spot on Forbes list of “Highest Earning Celebrities”. According to Forbes Hov and his King Bey together earned around $95 million dollars between June 2012 and June 2013.
Jay Z’s recent Watch the Throne album went platinum and launched a world tour that brought in $1.4 million per night in America. Knowles, who took a short break when her daughter Blue Ivy was born in January last year, was back with a vengeance this year with her Mrs. Carter world tour, which grossed an average $2 million per night. Jay Z is also a part owner of the new Barclays BCS -0.94% Center in Brooklyn, where the Brooklyn Nets play. He sold his stake in the team and now has to dump his share in the arena, too, because he’s started his own sports agency: Roc Nation Sports, which represents star athletes like Kevin Durant and Victor Cruz. Knowles has a fragrance collection and a clothing line called House of Deron.
Kim and Kanye also made the Forbes list for the first time as a couple, they came in at 5th place earning a combined total of 30 million dollars for the year.
