After taking the No. 2 spot behind Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady in 2011, Beyonce and Jay-Z have captured the title of Forbes Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples with an annual income of $78 million.
Bringing in an estimated $72 million from May 2011 and May 2012, Bundchen and Brady swap positions with the cash king and queen.

Victoria and David Beckham follow behind with an annual income of $54 million. Forbes reports her fashion line has been a huge contributor to the couple’s pockets, generating more than $40 million in annual sales. The former Spice Girl is also expanding the brand to add a collection of prescription glasses for Spring/Summer 2013.
And David? His endorsements and contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy pull in about $46 million a year.
Behind Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ($45 million), Will and Jada Pinkett Smith round out the list with an estimated $40 million. The A-list couple continues to win at the box office with blockbusters such as Men in Black 3 and Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted.
