Jay-Z has ranked atop yet another Forbes Magazine list. After ranking second on the publication’s annual “Hip-Hop Cash Kings” list, Jiggaman and his wife Beyonce have been named Hollywood’s richest couple.
According to Forbes, the couple almost evenly pitched in to earn $162 million last year. Hov’s revenues came from his Live Nation deal and his American Gangster release. Meanwhile, Bey made $80 mill through fashion, films, publishing deals, sold out tours and endorsement deals with American Express, L’Oreal and Direct TV.
The couple easily beat out Will Smith and Jada Pinkett who came in second with $85 million. The Fresh Prince raked in $80 mill with blockbusters like The Pursuit Of Happyness, I Am Legend and Hancock while Pinkett chipped in with $5 mill via movie roles. The list also featured David and Victoria Beckham at no. 3, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill at no. 4 and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at no. 5. -Bruce Moses
