Jay-Z and Beyonce are Hollywood's richest couple of 2008
Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles have topped a new poll as Hollywood's richest couple - with combined earnings for 2008 of $162 million according to Star Pulse.
The couple, who wed in April, have amassed a fortune in the year from June 1st 2007 to 2008. Rapper Jay-Z earned $82 million from his recent $150 million 10-year deal with concert promoter Live Nation, while wife Knowles has brought in $80 million from her various ventures in fashion, film and music.
Their 2008 fortune sets them far apart from Hollywood's other power couples - Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are in second place in the Forbes magazine poll with $85 million, while Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie could only manage fifth place with $34 million.
