Tom Brady Gisele Bundchen: World’s Richest Couple
As if we didn’t know already know: It pays big bucks to be ridiculously good-looking and talented to boot. Forbes Magazine has outed football player Tom Brady and catwalker/designer/addicted to all things pretty Gisele Bundchen as the richest celebrity couple on the planet.
Between May 2010 and May 2011, the couple brought home a combined $238 million, with Tom contributing over $100 million – from his earnings as the quarterback for the New England Patriots (for which he has signed a four-year contract) – and Gisele bringing in the rest from her modeling contracts, endorsement deals, and various business ventures that have the leggy Brazilian on the road to being the world’s first billionaire supermodel.
In second place is power twosome Beyonce and Jay-Z -they’ve also been dubbed “Music’s Most Powerful Couple” after bringing home $80 million over the past year. Jayonce is followed by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt ($48 million), and Victoria and David Beckham ($43 million). Long-alleged Twilight lovebirds Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart also made the list; they’ve earned a combined $38 million from their work with the franchise.
