Jay Z and Beyonce are a billion-dollar couple - according to one estimate.

Forbes puts the combined wealth of the married superstars at US$1.16 billion (NZ$1.67b).

The magazine estimates Jay Z's fortune at US$810 million (NZ$1.2b). It says Beyonce has amassed NZ$350 million (NZ$505m).

Forbes says most of Jay Z's money is involved in Roc Nation and his other companies.

Both the rapper and the singer also have a significant stake in the Tidal streaming music service.

Jay Z signed a 10-year pact with Live Nation to partner on concert events.

Variety reported last week that the deal is worth US$200 million (NZ$289m).

The couple has a 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy. Beyonce is pregnant with twins.
