10. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian – $140 million
If we were ranking these couples according to some sort of Celeb-O-Meter, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian would probably be top of the list. Kanye is an established name in the music industry, a status solidified by his most recent album, the critically acclaimed, high-earning Yeezus. He’s also no stranger to controversy, something he has in common with his wife his wife, TV personality Kim Kardashian. Reveling in the media attention, she earns big from endorsement deals, as well as the reality shows she stars in.
9. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis – $170 million
Mila and Ashton have been an item for two years now and have recently gotten engaged. They are probably the two most successful That ‘70s Show alumni, showing that they’ve got what it takes to be more than just sitcom stars.
While Kunis has mostly stayed on the acting path, Kutcher has also invested in companies such as Spotify, Airbnb or Foursquare and could well be on his way to becoming the first actor to become a billionaire from investments in tech ventures (it’s almost like we’ve seen this before somewhere).
8. Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart – $200 million
Harrison Ford is truly a legend of the silver screen, famous for iconic roles like Han Solo in Star Wars, or Indiana Jones in the eponymous film series. Calista Flockhart is markedly less prominent, mostly known for her role as the title character in the TV series Ally McBeal.
Both have been keeping quite a low profile as of late, with few notable appearances in recent years, but Ford’s rumored return in the next installment of Star Wars is likely to bring him in the spotlight once again – and probably won’t hurt his bank account either.
7. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith – $210 million
One of the longest standing couples on the list, Jada Pinkett and Will Smith have been married for almost 20 years now. Jada has enjoyed a moderately successful acting career and has even performed in a metal band, however it’s her husband who’s really gotten the most out of his career. The Fresh Prince has matured into an outstanding actor, starring in a string of high-earning blockbusters, but also receiving Oscar nominations for his roles in Ali and The Pursuit of Happyness.
6. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie – $270 million
For years, Brad and Angelina were Hollywood’s hottest couple – both beautiful, as well as extremely talented. Pitt is arguably one of the biggest male stars of the past two decades, with acclaimed performances in films such as Seven, Fight Club or Inglorious Basterds, while Jolie has also been praised for her roles in movies like Girl, Interrupted (for which she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress) or Changeling (which also earned her an Academy Award Nomination).
The couple is involved in many humanitarian causes as well, leveraging their high profile as well as their wealth to make the world a better place.
5. David Beckham and Victoria Beckham – $300 million
The days when Posh Spice was topping the charts with the most famous girl group ever are long gone, and even David himself has recently hung up his boots after a distinguished career, yet the couple can still live comfortably thanks to the vast fortune they’ve amassed during their successful years.
The former soccer superstar was once one of the highest paid people in sports, earning generous wages from clubs like Real Madrid and LA Galaxy and bringing home even more from a multitude of endorsement deals with the likes of Adidas, Coty and Samsung.
4. Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen – $400 million
Brazilian-born Gisele Bundchen is one of the world’s most famous and highest earning supermodels. A multitude of endorsement deals, as well as modeling gigs have paid off handsomely, making her the most successful model of the past decade. Her husband, Tom Brady, is also a leader in his field. The New England Patriots quarterback is one of the best football players of the past 15 years and became the NFL’s best paid player in 2010 with the signing of a $72 million deal.
3. Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn – $500 million
Tiger Woods is the David Beckham of golf – you’ve heard of him, even you’ve never watched a game of golf. His dominance on the links has made him the highest paid athlete in the world in the past, ahead of people competing in much more popular sports – with most of that money coming from the endorsement of brands like General Motors, American Express or Nike.
Lindsey Vonn is arguably just as successful, only in the even less well-known sport of alpine skiing. In spite of this, she has received quite some attention herself and made the most of it, picking up endorsements from the likes of Red Bull and Rolex.
2. Nick Cannon and Mariah Carrey – $515 million
Admittedly not as prominent today as she once was, Mariah Carey remains a hugely influential singer. Her glory days were in the 90s, when she was actually the best selling artists in the world. Carey received a staggering $100 million in 2000 for signing with Virgin Records and is still a relevant name in show business to this day, earning a reported $18 million to be a judge on American Idol.
Nick Cannon’s career may seem modest compared to that of his wife, however he has also been in the spotlight as a singer, actor and comedian. He’s also involved in music production and management.
1. Jay Z and Beyonce – $825 million
Beyonce and Jay Z seem to be building quite an empire. The pop diva hasn’t stopped releasing hits ever since embarking on a solo career a few years back, earning big from the sale of her music, touring and the endorsement of brands like Pepsi and H&M.
Jay Z, on the other hand, has swapped the recording studio for the office and meeting room and is now a very successful businessman. He earned a massive $204 million from the selling of the rights to his Rocawear brand in 2007, with other investments also adding to his vast fortune.
