Celebrity net worth is a fluctuating number — some years a celeb is up and some he or she is down. The easiest way to stay up? Marry a celebrity just as filthy rich. Many of the men and women on this list of the richest celebrity couples are wealthy on their own. Put two powerfully rich people together and watch the net worth double. Before we begin the list of the richest celebrity couples, these next few couples didn’t crack the top five — but give them a couple years. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are worth a combined $140 million. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis combined are worth $170 million. Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford can claim $200 million as a couple but Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith edge them out with a celebrity net worth of $210 million. Finally Brangelina (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in case you’re slow on the uptake) are worth a combined $270 million. And now, without further ado, the five richest celebrity couples with an absurd combined net worth.
The Beckhams are one of the richest celebrity couples on both sides of the pond. Here’s something amazing — the celebrity net worth of David Beckham and his wife Victoria hovers around $300 million yet both are retired from the respective careers which made them so much money. David Beckham hung up the cleats years ago but lucrative contracts from Real Madrid and the LA Galaxy have Becks making almost as much money in retirement as some current players. Victoria isn’t a touring Spice Girl anymore but her initial success and reunion tour a few years ago give her enough money to live – excuse the term – poshly. Both stars also make money from endorsement deals and now so do their offspring.
Another athlete and pretty face in the top five list of the richest celebrity couples , New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his model wife Gisele Bundchen are a celebrity power couple with more going for them than just looks. Gisele is a super model with a super salary attached any time she works and Brady is one of the top paid players in the NFL. In 2010, Tom signed a deal worth $72 million. Brady is also a poster boy for brands such as Uggs.
One of the newly-formed couples on the richest celebrity couple list, compared to the others, is Tiger Woods and Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. Even though both athletes have missed significant time away from their sports due to injury (Tiger bowed out of the 2014 Masters because of a pinched nerve and Lindsey missed the 2014 Winter Olympics because of a knee injury) but both athletes are arguably the best in their sports. Woods has regained most of the advertisers he lost after the cheating scandal and divorce and Vonn has deals with Rolex and Red Bull.
Easily one of the most surprising couples on the list of the richest celebrity couples, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey have amassed a half billion dollars in earnings from her music and his comedic talents. Nick Cannon’s net worth is around $20 million dollars. Besides TV hosting gigs, Cannon also wets his beak in music production and talent management while Carey made an estimated $18 million in her short stint as a judge on American Idol.
The richest celebrity couple with the highest net worth should come as no shock. Alone, Jay-Z is worth an estimated $550 million and Beyonce an estimated $350 million but when you combine the assets of both entertainers the Carter fortune is close to a billion dollars. Music, endorsements, client management, clothing the list of ways Jay-Z and Beyonce build their net worth as celebrities are too many to mention. Beyonce inked lucrative deals with Pepsi while Jay-Z sold his Roccawear brand in 2007 for a reported $204 million dollars. Hardly the modern day Bonnie and Clyde unless it’s brands these two media moguls are “stealing” from.
