Tom Bundchen and Gisele Brady Top Forbes Celebrity Couples List
Aug 22, 2011 - by Lester Brathwaite
Barely a month has gone by since its last celebrity earnings list, so Forbes Magazine -- sensing a lull or a slow news morning -- threw together a list of celebdom's highest paid couples. Catwalking and [insert some football reference here]-ing into the top spot are Gisele Bündchen and
manservant husband Tom Brady.
1. Tom Brady ($31 million) and Gisele Bündchen ($45 million) - $76 million
Gisele continues to wear the pants -- and the flats -- in this family though Tom would like you to know he does stuff too. What it is, I don't know nor do I care to, despite it involving a ball and a group of very large men.
2. Jay-Z ($37 million) and Beyoncé ($35 million) - $72 million
Beyoncé's propensity to shill for anything that even shakes a Dereon-attired hip her way led her and Sean Carter to within shooting distance of the top spot. Time to add some more endorsements, B -- I hear Target's hiring.
3. Brad Pitt ($20 million) and Angelina Jolie ($30 million) - $50 million
Hollywood's top earning actress tipped the scales in her favor -- kicking ass with a few passable movies -- while hubby Brad was at home getting thrown up on by the kids and falling out of The Tree of Life.
4. David Beckham ($40 million) and Victoria Beckham ($5 million) - $45 million
The ever-expanding David kills the pig, cures the meat and brings home the bacon but don't be too hard on Vicks for slacking off in the paycheck territory since she's been popping out like a baby a year for the past decade.
5. Robert Pattinson ($20 million) and Kristen Stewart ($20 million) - $40 million
Forbes is clearly playing fast and loose with the definition of "couple." Nonetheless, Patts and Stew brought in all that dough from the Twilight saga, the end of which will put a nail in the coffin (vampire schtick!) of their careers and alleged relationship.
