Beyonce & Jay-Z
Although most royals are born into a life of luxury, Beyonce and her husband of three years, Jay-z, came from humble beginnings. Jay-Z grew up in a housing project in a poor section of Brooklyn, while Beyonce’s father, then a medical equipment salesman, quit his job to concentrate on managing his young daughter’s budding musical talents, slicing the family’s income in half. By the time they started dating in 2002, the R&B songstress and the rapper-turned-music mogul had become multi-millionaires and power players in the entertainment industry. The couple earned the title of Most Powerful Couple by Time Magazine in 2006 and has topped the Forbes list of the richest couples in Hollywood several times since their 2008 wedding.
