Beyonce and Jay Z have just cracked the list of couples whose combined net worth is $1 billion or more!
Already parents to Blue Ivy, 5, the entertainment super couple are expecting twins in the summer and their piggy banks are likely already overflowing.
According to the Forbes list of America’s Wealthiest Self-Made Women, Beyonce has collected a personal fortune of $350 million. Pair that with Jay Z’s massive net worth of $810 million and you have a couple with the world in their palms. The “99 Problems” rapper trails only fellow hip hop mogul Diddy, who leads Jay Z by about $10 million.
So what is the secret to Beyonce’s self-made success? “I’m never satisfied,” she once told Forbes. “I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry.”
Much of Beyonce’s income this year can be credited to the industry-wide impact of her weighty album “Lemonade” and her subsequent “Formation” World Tour, which grossed an estimated $250 million.
As for Jay Z, a number of lucrative business ventures have kept his pockets heavy – plus a new 10-year, $200 million deal he signed with Live Nation last week.
