MONEY TEAM: Jay-Z & Beyonce Named Music's First Billion Dollar Couple? + Jay Pops Up At Mrs. Carter's Croatia Tour Stop

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:

ELLE: Do you do any charity

ELLE: Do you do any charity work? Beyoncé: Absolutely. My parents taught my sister and me the importance of giving back and making a difference in another person’s life. I work closely with a number of charities from food pantries to drug rehabilitation to natural disaster relief to preventing sexual exploitation of young girls. It is one of the most rewarding things I do.

lmao damnnn, you mad? Pls for

lmao damnnn, you mad? Pls for those who feel a certain way about beyonce, please help me figure out WHY? What has she done to you, like lol yaw are really mad at this woman for getting money, and please dont say you aren't because if you aren't mad, you would simply comment by saying "Congrats" or just simply moving along to the next post, but you take your so precious time to comment on somebody who you dislike for no reason, you say its not hating, but what is it tho honestly, is it because their zero's out did your ZERO, is it because they aren't physically placing the money in your hand, instead of donating it to charity, like you say they don't...my thing is worry about you and your acct, lol why in the hell do ppl focus so negatively on others, who could care less about you, maybe thats why, because they dont give a damn about you? and they shouldn't, but you ppl dont get that your just motivating them, if you dont want to see them or hear them, this is what you do, stop commenting on these damn blogs...HELLO, blogs keep celebrities relevant!! if you keep commenting on every damn post about them of course you are making them hot...STOP IT DAMN IT!! the more you type the more zero's you are adding to their acct, but i bet if you and the beyonce and jayz haters get together and decide not to comment on the photos, ppl will stop snapping pics of them, stop buying their cds and stop showing up to their concerts, becuz lets be real, beyonce has more haters then lovers, you guys be front row at her shows, first in line to buy a cd, and then first to comment on here how much she sucks, but you was just singing her song, ugh! i cant deal with you secret lovers, ima start calling you guys Helga, from "Hey Arnold" she talked about him to his face and to others, but when her ass got some alone time, she was straight loving that boy, like you "Helgas" do.

I'm not naming names but if

I'm not naming names but if the arrow hits you that's fine. I question 2 things: 1. Why did some ppl click on this post when they have dislike/hate for this couple? 2. How many of the ppl claiming Jay and Bey are selfish, greedy money-grubbers, etc. etc. donate a portion of their income to charity regularly? To the homeless, orphaned children, to you own damn babies future college education, Red Cross (not just those $10 texts every now and then when there's a disaster either), cancer research, save the children, save the whales, save the rain forests, save SOMETHING!! *crickets* ??? Okay well than SAVE IT!! Really you everyday on these blogs hating on the world types need to save these thesis papers for your college educations. You epitomize the phrase 'GET A LIFE'. That is all.

Wow, some people believe that

Wow, some people believe that BeYAWNce and Jay-sleaZy s**t gold. They worship them like god almighty. Probably have prayer stations set up in their cheap raggedy apts. Guess there's a thin line between being a fan and a FANATIC and from the looks of it, all the fanatics are up in this blog singing their phrases day and night. Guess when your own life is so f***ed up and s***ty you have to live vicariously through some else i.e. BeYAWNce. These crazy STANS are probably imagining it's them on stage flingy that burnt out yellow weave and gyrating like their leotards are on fire. Take note drones....BeYAWNce is not the messiah.

I just saw a lie on somebody

I just saw a lie on somebody comment they say that beyonce and jay-Z don't give back. Are y'all serious? Beyonce gave up her Dreamgirls check that was 12 Million and gave away to the homeless women. 2nd Beyonce and Jay-Z have a charity thing every year where they give over 2 Million a year. 3rd Crime for Change is charity. 4th Beyonce is giving back to help people with there educations so before you hate please speak facts. And Last thing beyonce was giving back since she became rich...

Like I said it was reported

Like I said it was reported that Jay's taxes reflected he gave 6k to charity in 2010. All that other nonsense you taking bout, Bey giving 12 mil to a homeless woman...PLEASSSSE! If U believe that I have some ocean front property in Green Bay, WI to sell u dirt cheap.

These two are extreme media whores no matter how much they front like they want privacy( which is done to make people more interested). If they gave a pack of ketchup to a homeless man they would have a film crew on site.

Miss Keys, you do not need to

Miss Keys, you do not need to know what they do with their hard earned money. Since they're both about their business, it would be ridiculous for them not to give back, it makes no sense...much like your statement. If it helps you sleep better at night, try Google.

What I don't understand about

What I don't understand about them is they give nothing to charity. When it was reported that in 2010 Jay's taxes reflected 6k to charity I could not believe how that headline was swept under the rug. Beyonce is always talking bout her blessings but give NOTHING back. The reason Oprah continued to get $$$ is cause she gave so much. The big difference is Oprah made it through education and she understand the world we live in. Although I love Bey/Jay as a couple, I think they should take some money and buy a clue.
Somerknight's picture

You nailed it. They are

You nailed it. They are obsessed with obtaining wealth but do nothing for others. You almost never hear or see Beyonce doing anything to help others and yes I read about Jay giving only 6k in charity after making millions in a year.
