By FRANCIS OGBONNA
The combined net worth of America’s showbiz power couple, Jay Z and Beyonce for 2017 hit a whopping $1.2 billion Forbes has estimated.  
In its latest report, the bi-weekly American business magazine claims that while, the ‘Lemonade’ star, contributed about $350million (around £258million) to the sum total, her husband who Thursday publicly admitted to having cheated on his wife had the lion share of  $810million (around £599million). 
Beyonce, 36, married Shawn Corey Carter, 47, known by his stage name Jay Z, in 2008 and the couple has three children together - Blue Ivy and twins Rumi and Sir. 

The two stars are some of the biggest names in the music industry and have upheld global success over the last decade.
