The Carters Got Stacks On Deck+Aubrey Getting Her Own Show?
Nov 21 | by Natasha
It's official. Mr. and Mrs. Carter are the highest earning celebrity couple according to Forbes this year. Beyonce & Jay-Z have earned $162 million combined just this past year--which lands them at the #1 spot:
Any way you slice it, the chart-topping newlyweds have had a monster year. He banked $82 million by signing a $150 million 10-year recording, touring and merchandising deal with concert promoter Live Nation and releasing his second platinum comeback CD, American Gangster. She raked in $80 million, thanks to an entertainment empire including fashion, film and publishing deals as well as a concert tour that sold $50 million in tickets and endorsement deals with L'Oréal, Direct TV and American Express, among others.And this was only June 1, 2007-June 1, 2008. So these two definitely have stacks on deck... The number 2 spot goes to our other fave YBF couple--Willada:
Though Jada Pinkett Smith's résumé continues to grow, husband Will Smith maintains his role as the family breadwinner. He pulled down $80 million in the year ending June 2008, thanks to another set of top-performing blockbusters: I Am Legend, The Pursuit of Happyness and this past summer's Hancock. She managed to generate a still impressive $5 million during the same period, thanks to roles as an actress (The Women), producer (The Human Contract) and entrepreneur (she has a stake in beauty line Carol's Daughter).YBF couples are killing the Forbes list this year.
