Talking about Forbes' list of 'America's Wealthiest Self-Made Women' just released; Beyoncé, 35, has amassed a personal fortune of $350 million.

The total for Jay Z, 47, has soared to $810 million per last week's ranking of hip-hop's richest acts (he trails No. 1 Diddy by just $10 million).

That brings the couple to a combined net worth of $1.16 billion and counting.

So, Beyonce and Jay Z are now officially a billion-dollar couple!

Naturally the question would be how did they do that?

For Beyoncé, it is straightforward: "I'm never satisfied," she once told Forbes. "I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry.”
