Hip-Hop’s favorite power couple, Jay Z and Beyonce, are now worth more than a billion dollars.
The professional pocket-watchers at Forbes magazine are reporting that the duo’s joint bank account is currently sitting at $1.16 billion dollars.
Beyoncé, 35, has amassed a personal fortune of $350 million. The total for Jay Z, 47, has soared to $810 million per last week’s ranking of hip-hop’s richest acts (he trails No. 1 Diddy by just $10 million). That brings the couple to a combined net worth of $1.16 billion and counting.
Guess those jokes about Beyonce having more “no, you shut the f*ck up” money than Jay can cease now.
Jay has added at least $400 million to his pockets this year alone. In January, Sprint bought a 33% stake in TIDAL that reportedly equaled $200 million, bringing the company’s worth to an estimated $600 million. Then, earlier this month he pocketed another $200 million from a new Live Nation touring deal.
With Beyonce taking a break from the road to rest during her pregnancy, Jay Z is expected to more touring than usual this year.
In the most recent Forbes list of the wealthiest people in Hip-Hop, Jay was listed right behind Diddy with a net worth of $810 million.
Jay and Bey are expecting a new set of twins this year. Doesn’t look like they will have to want for much.
