Jay Z and Beyoncé are worth more than $1 billion


 

Per FORBES' list of America's Wealthiest Self-Made Women--released today--Beyoncé, 35, has amassed a personal fortune of $350 million. The total for Jay Z, 47, has soared to $810 million per last week's ranking of hip-hop's richest acts (he trails No. 1 Diddy by just $10 million). That brings the couple to a combined net worth of $1.16 billion and counting. 

Beyoncé and Jay Z have earned plenty of cash separately, and though the bulk of the couple's wealth is tied up in his companies--Roc Nation, Armand de Brignac and others--there is plenty of synergy as well.

The Knowles-Carters both hold significant equity in Tidal, the streaming service Jay Z purchased for $56 million two years ago. The value of their stakes soared when Sprint invested a reported $200 million for a 33% of the company--valuing Tidal at $600 million and helping launch Beyoncé and Jay Z into ten-figure territory.
