Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are highest-paid celebrity couple

Taylor Swift and her latest beau Calvin Harris have taken Jay Z and Beyonce's crowns as the music world's highest-paid celebrity couple, according to Forbes.

The Blank Space singer and her Scottish hitmaker boyfriend only recently confirmed their romance, but they are already beating out the hip-hop supercouple on the money list, making a combined total of $146 million in 2014, according to editors at the finance magazine.


Beyonce and Jay Z, who topped the list last year, drop to second place with a $110.5 million fortune.


Both Swift and Harris are no strangers to Forbes' lists - the pop star is the second highest-paid woman in music, behind Beyonce and Harris has been named the highest-paid DJ for the past two years.


Rounding out the top three on the new rich couples list are country stars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, who earned $57 million together over the past year.
