Beyonce and Jay-Z have had a lucrative year.

The couple is No. 1 on Forbes magazine's list of the highest-earning celebrity couples. How much does the couple earn, exactly? About $95 million between June 2012 and June 2013, reports Forbes.

They beat out Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, who are No. 2 on the list. They can probably thank their recent tours for that. Jay-Z's tour raked in 1.4 million a night and Beyonce's tour brought in 2 million a night, says Forbes.


The Carters earned 15 million more than Brady and Bundchen. But the Bradys were no slouches, earning a total of $80 million between June 2012 and June 2013. Bundchen is, after all, the highest-paid model in the world. And Brady's contract with the Patriots included a $30 million signing bonus, which didn't hurt their placement on this list.
