Rich and famous are two words that are frequently bandied about in tandem. Generally famous people are rich, but those who are rich are not always famous. Combine the two and there are hundreds of celebrity couples who fill that bill.
The list of the top earners who have the highest net worth seems to change a bit each year, but a few couples, such as Beyonce and Jay Z, are always somewhere between on the top 10-15 rankings. A 2013 Forbes article listed the couple as the highest earning celebrity couple around, bringing in an estimated $95 million that year alone.
However, earnings and net worth are two completely different numbers. The definition of annual earnings doesn't require much explanation, as it is simply one's annual income. Estimated net worth is a completely different animal, as it is the difference between one's total assets (such as stocks, bonds and other owned properties), less liabilities (such as loans/liens). The difference between assets and liabilities is what provides the net worth figure.
