Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples: Who Made the Cut? (PHOTOS)


Forbes just released their list of the highest-earning celebrity couples. The top five money making duos made the annual list by their combined gross income between May 2010 and May 2011.

Our brains were raking over all the celeb couples sure to make the list: Tom & Katie, Ben & Jen, Gavin & Gwen and the first lady of the Black Eyed Peas Fergie and her hubby Josh Duhamel. Surprisingly, none of these couples made it!

Even more shocking, one of the youngest powerhouse couples did! Twilight sweethearts Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson cracked into the top 5 with their combined annual income of $40 million. They each earned $20 million from the success of the franchise's third installment, Eclipse.

Brad and Angie narrowly surpassed the UK's biggest export, the Beckhams ($45 million), earning a whopping $50 million from May 2010-May 2011. Angelina was the big money maker in the group pulling $30 million from her butt-kicking roles in The Tourist and Salt.

The final battle came between Hip Hop royalty and possibly America's most beautiful couple. Beyonce and Jay-Z had a slew of projects to keep them busy (and rich) over the past year, but Tom Brady did sign a record-breaking new contract with the New England Patriots. Plus, Giselle Bundchen is the world's richest supermodel.

So, which couple came in at No. 1? View the gallery to find out!

    Of course they can,but you haters don't have an objective opinion about her,because you're so full of hating that she'll be forever "an ugly arrogant and ungrateful bitch". When someone express a good opinion about her,it's because her PR team is so agressive and pay everyone (even simple people like me) to say or write nice things about her >_< When she tries to be more feminine,because she's growing up,you say that she is a sold out. This is not having opinion,this is hating her for EVERYTHING she does. She doesn't smile,oh she's ungrateful bitch. She smiles,her PR team is doing a good job. Try to find a better excuse,'cause her PR team is not the mafia and can't control all Hollywood. It the dumbest excuse ever read,really! If YOU are so frustrated and full of hating,that doesn't mean that people hates a girl that thay even don't know,like you. Grow up!
