According to Forbes, Jay-Z and Beyonce are the worlds highest paid couple edging out Jada and Will Smith, and Phelps and Lochte!
The Couple make a combined $80 Million dollars annually. 80 Million dollars! 80 freakin' Million dollars a year! Below is Forbes description.
Last year's runners-up on the list of The World's Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples, the duo has now climbed one spot to top this year's ranking. The singer's new album went platinum in the U.S., not to mention her non-musical ventures and endorsement deals, which all helped to bring her total earnings between May 1, 2011 and May 1, 2012 to $40 million, according to data from the latest Celebrity 100 list. The hip-hop mogul made millions from Watch the Throne, his musical collaboration with pal Kanye West, and even more from the tour that followed. Add to that a bevy of non-musical enterprises such as ad firm Translation and cosmetics company Carol's Daughter and the result is a staggering $38 million that he has brought home in twelve months, putting the couple's annual income at $78 million.

2nd on the list is Gisele and Tom Brady with $72 Million, followed by David and Victoria Beckham with $54 Million.
Just imagine if men wasn't afraid of Oprah. I can make 9 dollars an hour and we'll still be the highest paid couple in the world if I was with her.
