Forbes Lists The Highest Paid Couples

Who are the wealthiest couples in the world? It’s a good question and one that luckily, Forbes has the answer to. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and NFL superstar Tom Brady come in at the top spot with a staggering total of $76 million. Contributing to this is Bundchen’s $45 million yearly salary and Brady’s cool $31 million.

The couple I expected to take number one, Beyonce and Jay-Z, hop onto the second spot with $72 million, with $35 million of that coming from the diva who, although it’s hard to believe now, used to be most well known for her involvement in Destiny’s Child.

Stealing third place is Hollywood’s number one couple, Brangelina. Pulling in a healthy $50 million, Jolie contributed more than Pitt, with her movies bringing in $30 million while the former “sexiest man alive” earned a smooth $20 million.

Back to the sports world for our fourth place couple, David Beckham and his wife Victoria. At $45 million, this is more of a one sided relationship in terms of financial contributions. Beckham earned $40 million while the former Posh Spice only brought in a meagre $5 million.

Rounding off the list is K.Stew and R.Pattz. The Twilight darlings earned $40 million. Of course, the majority of their income comes from Twilight but they both did their own thing this past year as well. Kristen Stewart had The Runaways and Welcome To Rileys and Robert Pattinson had Remember Me.

So, what do you think? Personally, it’s pretty much exactly what I expected but are there any power couples that you expected to be on the list that didn’t make it?
