Forbes released its latest list about celebrity millionaires to make us feel bad about ourselves and it was brought to our attention that both Beyonce and Gisele Bundchen make more money than their music mogul and football powerhouse husbands, Jay-Z and Tom Brady. According to Forbes, Beyonce earned $40 million between May 1, 2011 and May 1, 2012 despite taking a break from touring and Giselle pulled in $45 million with her endorsement deals and modeling gigs. Jay-Z trailed his wife by just $2 million and Tom Brady managed to make $27 million.
Not that Jay-Z and Tom ‘s money is anything to laugh at but it is impressive that their wives made more. But these couples’ combined incomes make them the two highest earning celebrity couples according to Forbes. Victoria and David Beckham follow them and then Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.
According to a new report from Prudential, the majority of women have emerged as primary breadwinners. It found that 53% of women are the main source of income, with increasing numbers of females assuming the role as a result of partners losing jobs during the financial crisis, divorce, deciding to marry later or in this case, just being extremely hot and talented.
