Pretty much everyone wants to achieve and experience fame in their lives. With technology, this has become possible. Nowadays, all you have to do is make something funny or absurd and it’s guaranteed to give you some sort of popularity once it goes viral.
However, there are other types of fame categories. Those which allow you to stay within that circle for years on end. And the sources? Well, they are endless. Movies, business, politics and the list goes on. And with all the fame, something else comes your way, something that pretty much every single person on Earth desires: Money.
Men and women who have acquired that long-lasting embodiment of fame live lives that most of us can only dream of. Imagine living a life where purchasing something only requires an effort of making the payment. Want a luxurious house or vehicle? Step out and buy it.
What’s better than being rich and famous? Marrying someone who’s also rich and famous. It’s a trend we’ve witnessed for decades on end. Famous figures of the world tying the knot in holy matrimony and becoming even richer than before. Sometimes, their net worths are more than the GDP of smaller countries on the world map.
Let’s take a look at some couples who are not only famous but extremely rich as well.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
The debate about the two seems to be on an unending spectrum. While public opinion is divided on the two, some label Kim as talentless, while others label Kanye as a talentless narcissist. But it doesn’t seem to bother the couple much. You know why? Because the two have a combined net worth of $335 million. The number itself is difficult to fathom, let alone possess.
David and Victoria Beckham
David and Victoria have a beautiful family and a beautiful marriage which has been going strong for 18 years now. But what about their individual status? While David is perhaps one of the Richest athletes in the world (now retired), Victoria was once part of the Spice Girls, conquering music charts all over the world. What does a union get you? Well, $900 million.
Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi
The openly lesbian couple is adored all across the world. Ellen for sure has made her mark, by entertaining people with her child-like humor for decades now. Which eventually earned her a Medal Of Freedom from the President of the United States himself. Global opinions put her as one of the most loved TV personalities in the world. The couple is currently worth $350 million. Not to forget, she landed the supermodel/actress Portia de Rossi.
Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban
Kidman is one of the most famous actresses of all time. With an Academy Award to her name, her life is as lavish as it can get. But it gets better. In 2005, Nicole married the rock star Keith Urban. Although in numbers, Kidman is richer, by normal standards Keith isn’t so bad either. They have a combined worth of $205 million.
Barack and Michelle Obama
Before Obama made history and became the first Africa-American President of USA, he made another good decision, to marry Michelle Obama. Their story was so inspiring, there’s a movie based on it as well. They’ve accomplished a lot together, which earned them a decent amount of cash as well. It’s not much when you compare it to others on this list, but combined $80 million is not too shabby either.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
We’re glad that Miley’s days of being downright weird are behind her. But we’re also happy that the power/adorable couple is back together. Yes, we’re talking about none other than Liam Hemsworth. The Aussie actor is still new to the cinematic industry, he’s slowly making his mark. Bigger roles are bringing in the cash as well. Although his net worth is nowhere near Miley’s, we’re sure he’ll catch up someday. Together they possess $176 million.
Justin Timberlake and Jessia Biel
10 time Grammy award winner Justin Timberlake has had an impressive career. From music to acting to a show during the Superbowl, Justin just keeps getting better and better. His wife? Jessi Biel. Also a successful and talented actress. She’s starred in impressive movies and is currently leading the TV show ‘The Sinners’. Together they are worth $248 million.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
The supermodel and singer are the embodiment of couple goals everywhere in the world. Their relationship is not only amazing but pretty relatable as well. With Chrissy’s online antics, to John’s successful music career, the couple has it all. But there is something that’s not relatable, and that is their combined worth of $50 million.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis
The two actors met on the 70s show and the rest was history. Their onscreen romance and chemistry landed them both successful career. But it wasn’t until 2015 that they tied the knot. In fact, they only reunited in 2012. But ever since, things have only gotten better for the duo. They now have two children together, and $225 million. Not bad.
Jay-Z and Beyonce
While Beyonce is one of the most famous artists of all time, her individual career is enough to stand on its own. But Jay-Z is not doing so bad either. Although he still works with the music industry, Jay-Z has found success in the business world as well. With various investments and the formation of TIDAL, he’s only gotten richer. Which explains why they’re the richest couple on the list, with a combined net worth of $1.16 billion.
