Microsoft founder Bill Gates and his beautiful wife Melinda have taken first place in the list of the richest couples in the world. But if we talk about show business, there is only one possible winner Beyonce and Jay-z couple.
The couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé became the first known couple in the history of the music industry, whose total income was about a billion dollars. They had the same contribution into their family budget. It was the sum with nine zeros.
In 2006 the channel MTV called Rapper Jay-Z the best MC of all time. It happened because during his 24-year musical career he managed to sell over 50 million copies of his albums. He also had considerable income from, for example, his own clothing line Rocawear, famous recording studio Roc-A-Fella Records, promotion company and a lot of other successful business projects.
His wife Beyoncé has sold 75 million copies of her albums and earned good money on plenty of advertising campaigns. She is working with the companies such as Armani, Pepsi, Tommy Hilfiger and L'Oreal.
Even despite the fact that Beyonce took a small break after giving birth, she has earned nearly 40 million. She earned this sum due to the sponsorship deals, album sales and her own business.
According to the experts Beyonce and Jay Z net worth is about $1.2 billion.
American R'n'B singer, music producer, actress, dancer and model was born on 4th September, 1981 in Houston (USA). As a child, she participated in various singing and dancing competitions, but became famous in the late 1990s as part of the band Destiny's Child.
In 2011, Beyoncé was awarded the prize of the magazine Billboard, as the Artist of the Millennium. A singer received her first award when she was 19 years old. Throughout her musical career she has earned 17 Grammy Awards and had 45 nominations. But still she thinks her main achievement is the birth of a daughter.
Until the relationship with rapper Jay-Z Beyonce had only one guy that she was dating with from 12 to 19 years old. After the collapse of the Destiny's Child she was depressed for a long time. A singer could not recover until 2002 when she met (at that time very famous) performer Jay-Z. In 2003 they released their first joint video Bonnie & Clyde. That was the time when the press printed the first rumors about their romance.
Journalists began to annoy enamored with questions about the wedding. Then in 2007 Jay-Z said: ‘One day in the nearest future - let's say so’. Because of the importance of this event in their lives the couple decided not to make PR. So the wedding was secret and took place in New York penthouse, April 4, 2008.

The journalists found out about that only after two weeks. Later, there were the details of the ceremony: 200 star guests (including Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, Janet Jackson, Usher and Gwyneth Paltrow), 2-meter multi-tiered cake and a splendid dress of the bride sewed by her mother Tina Knowles. There are no photos from the wedding so no one could see the white dress. It could be found only in the video or on the concert of a singer.
Thus the family of Jay-Z and Beyonce was born. Everything was perfect, the career of each of them developed rapidly. But then rapper was 40 years old and he began speaking about the children. The actress, who was bathed in glory, was afraid to go on maternity leave and put off the question in the different ways. The media headlines began to ‘scream’ about discord in the family, but the couple did not respond to it. Already in 2011 at the MTV Video Music Awards Beyonce touched his rounded tummy, making it clear that she is pregnant.
January 7, 2012 in New York, the singer gave birth to her daughter Blue Ivy Carter. For the purpose of the conspiracy in the hospital she was registered with the name Ingrid Jackson. That was the reason why the fans began to suspect that Beyonce did not bear a child herself, but used the services of a surrogate mother. A TV host Oprah Winfrey became a girl’s godmother.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z instagram shows plenty of their family, happy photos. But there is maybe no family any more.
However, now couple has plenty of problems. The world found out about Jay-Z affairs. Beyonce said nothing about her husband’s cheating. But she was very surprised by the news that her husband, rapper Jay Z, has an illegitimate child. This may be the last straw for the actress, as their marriage is already coming apart.
