According to a Forbes reports, the combined net worth of Jay Z and Beyonce has officially surpassed a billion dollars. It was recently revealed that Jay’s personal net worth is $810 million, making him the second richest man in hip-hop, surpassed only by Diddy. Now, in an article revealing the wealthiest self-made women, Forbes lists Beyonce’s personal fortune as $350 million. Together, they clock in with a combined total of $1.16 billion dollars. No word on whether or not the couple will install a Scrooge McDuck style money pool in their basement, in which Blue Ivy can learn to swim.
While Jay Z might be bringing in the big bucks, Beyonce is no slouch herself. The multi-Grammy Award winner has a personal fortune of $350 million. She’s also using her wealth for good causes, such as setting up the “Formation” scholarships for young women who are studying creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies at select colleges. In addition, Jay Z’s Shawn Carter Foundation, a nonprofit organization he created with his mother, recently partnered with eBay for Charity to help underprivileged youth attend college, according to Billboard.
The charitable endeavors likely won’t stop, seeing Jigga has plenty of new capital coming in to work with. He just inked a 10-year deal with Live Nation that is worth $200 million. His streaming service TIDAL also received an influx of cash after Sprint purchased 33 percent stake in the company in January.
