No amount of controversy is stopping The Carters from cashing in HARD at the bank. The powerhouse couple have reportedly just been named music’s first billionaire couple. Deets inside….
Love ’em or hate ’em, Jay-Z & Beyonce have turned their last 10+ years as a couple….into a billion dollar empire. And you’ve got to respect a YBF couple for turning that out.
According to International Business Times, Shawn Carter & Beyonce Knowles Carter are the first couple in music to join the billion dollar club with their joint incomes.
The dual 2013 VOGUE cover girl is reportedly set to rake in $116 million on her Mrs. Carter World Tour. And in addition to that rumored $50 mill Pepsi campaign and multi million dollar H&M campaign, Beyonce helped pushed the couple’s joint money power across that billion dollar mark this year.
Jay is super successful in his own right, of course, constantly topping FORBES richest Hip Hop artists lists and his stakes in beauty companies, music companies and sports teams. And now, pending his approval from the NFLPA commission, he’s about to start funneling NFL clients into his own Roc Nation sports agency, with the help of CAA.
FORBES’ highest paid celebrity couple of 2012 is now our first billionaire couple in music. And since we doubt either of them are about to stop raking in money anytime soon, Blue Ivy and her great grandchil’ren are already set for life!
Marriage can be one of the best business deals in the game, especially when the love seems genuine as well. Can’t be mad at that.
And as Bey made her second tour stop today in Croatia, her ever supportive hubby was hiding out in the soundbooth watching her do what she does best:
