Beyonce and Jay-Z may be worth a billion bucks - but they dont even come close to the richest celeb power couples. We count down the top 10.

Jay Z and Beyonce are without a doubt one of the most powerful couples -- and now they've reached another impressive milestone.

According to Forbes, Beyonce's net worth is now roughly $350 million (R4,6 billion) and her husband Jay-Z has recently soared to over $850 million (R11,2 billion). This brings their combined net worth to over $1.6 billion (R21 billion).

So... providing for twins shouldn't be much of a problem then?

The bulk of the couple's wealth comes from Jay-Z's companies and in particular, his music-streaming service, Tidal.

These figures are perhaps too much for us mere mortals to comprehend -- so you'll be shocked to hear there are couples out there worth even more than Jay and Bey's eye-watering sum.

These are the top 10 richest couples of 2016. The worst part? Some of their relationships didn't make it to 2017.

10. Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith

These famous actors' net worth is an estimated $280 million (R3.7 billion) -- and their marriage of 20 years seems to be going strong.
