Just how rich is Beyonce? Beyonce’s net worth is reportedly estimated at $350.0 million but after Beyonce’s highest paid woman title by Forbes, everyone is curious about how much she’s making and what she could potentially earn in the future. We’ve got the details.
Beyonce and Jay-Z
There’s no Hollywood event worth going to that doesn’t put this power couple at the top of the guest list. Beyonce and Jay-Z both go by one name because they’re just that famous. The 36-year-old Lemonade singer may have started out with Destiny’s Child but she eventually parted ways and became a household name. People were surprised to hear that Beyonce was interested in Jay-Z (whose real name is Sean Carter) but the two fell in love and got married in 2008. Their combined net worth is reportedly $1.0 billion, with Jay-Z’s portion being $810.0 million.
|Taylor Swift||$44.0 million|
|Celine Dion||$42.0 million|
|Jennifer Lopez||$38.0 million|
“Becky with the Good Hair”
Their marriage was often kept private, until Queen Bey spilled the tea with her iconic album, Lemonade. It’s arguably the best of Beyonce’s albums thus far and it still has many wondering about the identity of “Becky with the good hair.” There were several rumors of Jay-Z cheating on his wife and both their albums were very revealing. No one really knew what went on in the Carter marriage (many still don’t) but even though the 4:44 singer reportedly cheated, Beyonce stayed and many still wonder why.
“They had been having problems for years,” a close source told E! News. “There was a constant commitment issue between them and in the end they were barely speaking. Beyonce didn’t fully trust Jay and it was hard for her to get past that. The fact everything became so public, it was embarrassing, and [it was] the first time she had to really deal with some of the questions people were asking about her marriage. It changed things. It was a pivotal moment.”
But healing didn’t come easily and with therapy and time, they were able to work on their problems.
“They are both fully committed. They are over the worst” a source told E! News. “It’s been a long and hard process but they are in a much better place now.” Another insider said: “They have love for each other and always will, but…they have their ups and downs.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed their first child, daughter Blue Ivy Carter on January 7, 2012. On June 13, 2017, Beyonce welcomed twins (daughter) Rumi and (son) Sir Carter. Beyonce shared the news of her first born while at a red carpet event and with the twins, she took to Instagram in a pregnant silhouette of her wearing a green veil and jean shorts. Not surprisingly, it instantly became a widely spread meme.
Blue’s name was already explained but as for the unusual names for their twins, the dad-of-three explained to podcast Rap Radar: “Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter.”
He continued: “And then Sir was, like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, Sir.”
Highest Paid Woman
It’s seems the BeyHive got into formation after all and made the pop diva even richer. Beyonce’s songs always get people going and usually serve as a way to empower women. With Beyonce’s tour, Formation and albums sales, the Texas native was able to top Forbes‘ list on Monday and reportedly made $105.0 million (before taxes) for the year of 2017. She beat out British singer Adele, who came in second place at $69.0 million and Taylor Swift, who came in third place with $44.0 million. Swift’s numbers dropped compared to previous years, but she’s expected to have an increase in her own net worth, thanks to her newest album, Reputation.
So far, fees from lawyers, managers, and agents were not subtracted from the total earnings for any of the singers on the list.
Beyonce and Jay-Z live in Los Angeles and New York, owning a $26.0 million property in East Hampton, New York. The estate has seven bedrooms, seven-and-a-half bathrooms, and is a whopping 12,000 square-feet. It also comes with an 1,800 square-foot guest house with two bedrooms! They also own a 30,000 square-foot home in Bel Air for $88.0 million, which was reportedly the most expensive deal in the city this year.
The Lion King
Beyonce passed on starring in Emma Watson’s Beauty and the Beast live-action remake, but she couldn’t pass up the chance to be in The Lion King. The Grammy winner will play the voice of Nala alongside Donald Glover’s Simba, which is slated for a 2019 release.
By the looks of it, Beyonce’s net worth will increase in to time and before you know, it might even be on par with her husband’s!
