Jay Z, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West among top-earning celebrity couples

beyonce-jay-z-kim-kardashian-kanye-west-highest-earning-couples.jpg Jay Z and Beyonce are two global music superstars who have also handled their considerable earnings well, as they top the Forbes list of highest-earning celebrity couples. The pair made $95 million between June 2012 and June 2013.

Gisele Bundchen is the world's highest-paid model, which helped secure her and husband Tom Brady's spot at no. 2 with $80 million. Gisele actually out-earned her NFL quarterback partner by $4 million.

Coming in at no. 3 are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie with $50 million. Interestingly, most of that money comes strictly from film salaries, as opposed to the two couples ahead of them who have businesses built around their celebrity status that earn them money.

Next on the list surprised us a bit, but not because of the money. The no. 4 couple is Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis at $35 million. Now, there are rumors that the two are engaged, but it's not as though they've been living together and having children like Brangelina. So, it surprised us that their incomes were combined in order to include them on the list because we woudln't guess they have shared finances, you know? As opposed to the couples ahead of them on the list who probably do.

Finally, the no. 5 couple is none other than Kim Kardashian and Kanye West with $30 million earned. Again, we wonder if K&K have shared finances. We would guess they do not.
