Beyonce and Jay Z attend the “China: Through The Looking Glass” Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 4, 2015 in New York City.
Looks like Jay Z and Beyonce have just cracked $1 billion dollars.
According to a Forbes list released today, Beyonce has amassed a net worth totaling in $350 million. Jay Z, according to Forbes Hip Hop’s Wealthiest Artist list, has soared over $810 million, just $10 million shy of the Diddy’s number 1 spot.
This brings the couple’s combined net-worth to $1.16 billion dollars.
When asked in a candid conversation about how she did it, Beyonce responded: “I’m never satisfied,” she once told FORBES. “I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry.”
The total above may not include a new ten-year deal announced last week between Jay Z and Live Nation for $200 million. The new deal is expected to give Live Nation exclusive touring rights to Jay Z for the next decade.
That’s a lot of money. What would you do with it if you were in their shoes?
