We are all strangely obsessed with celebrities and everything related to them. Celebrity couples are even more fun. Peeking into someone’s life and knowing details you simply don’t need to know is oddly satisfying. We have access to strange and personal information including their salaries. To celebrate International Women’s Day, I decided to put together a list of celebrity couples, in which the women earn more than their husbands.
This 2018 is already celebrating women the way they deserve to be celebrated. The voices of equality are much stronger, and everyone seems to slowly understand to power of women in the world. In the past, females were meant to stay at home and do all the cooking, laundry cleaning and taking care of the kids, while men earned a living. Today a lot of things have changed. There are so many lady bosses that started from nothing and are now worth millions. Take a look at which women celebrities earn much more than their popular husbands.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z
Queen B earns more than twice of what Jay makes. She is undoubtedly the most popular musician in the world and officially the highest-paid one for 2017. But she doesn’t get all the money from just singing. Bey is a successful businesswoman, a co-owner of her activewear company, investments in startups and much more. It seems that there’s much more behind that pretty face. Beyoncé’s estimated yearly income is around $105 million, while Jay-Z earns around $45 million. Talk about boss lady!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Kimye, as many refer to the couple, is definitely a synonym for power. Kim is probably the most popular woman in the world. But this busty beauty has more than a body to show off. It seems that she’s also a huge business mind that is on the way of building an empire. Her new makeup and beauty company KKW Beauty is breaking all records and selling products like crazy. Kim’s first fragrance made over $10 million in just four days. Talk about the power of social media! Kim’s annual income is estimated $42 million, while her husband earns around $17 million. It’s not even close enough. Kanye, on the other hand, is also busy with numerous projects including recording his music and running a designer fashion house. But he still can’t seem to live up to the fame of his wife.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik
The gorgeous Hadid is taking the fashion and beauty industries by storm. Aside from being one of the most booked models these days, she has also plenty of successful collaborations with high-end brands. Gigi is the ambassador of Tommy Hilfiger and co-designed four collections with the popular American designer. The lines were sold out extremely fast. Just recently, the long-legged goddess also designed her own collection with Stuart Weitzman and regularly appears in their ads as the brand’s face. And since fashion simply wasn’t enough for her, Gigi created a makeup collection with Maybelline. For things to get even better, Hadid has her own line of eyewear with Vogue. Malik became popular as a part of the One Direction boy band. The band split, so Zayn started his solo career. His debut songs were huge hits. The young Malik is also in the world of fashion, by designing a collection for Versus Versace. Gigi’s estimated annual earnings are around $10, while Zayn earns half of that, which is still not bad!
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott
The new parents are another couple that everyone follows. Kylie is a millionaire at only 20. She launched her Kylie Cosmetics Company that is now on a fast track to becoming a billion-worth company. The controversial Jenner is building an empire just like all of her sisters. Travis gets his money from his music and several campaigns that he stars in. Kylies yearly income is $41 million, while Travis reaches $900.000.
