Salma Hayek and Francois Pinault -- $7.2 billion

Topping the list as the richest celebrity couple in the world, Frida actress Salma Hayek and Kering CEO Francois Pinault have been married since 2009. Kering is the parent company of luxury brands like Gucci, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga, just to name a few. Francois’s father founded the company, formerly PPR, in 1962, and handed over the reins to him in 2003. If that wasn’t enough, Francois also owns a Bordeaux wine estate and a French soccer team. He is worth a whopping $7 billion- that’s right, seven billion. Salma’s own wealth is nothing to sneeze at though- she started a film production company in 2000 with credits like ‘Ugly Betty’ under its belt. The Golden Globe winner also has a line of makeup, haircare and skincare products called Nuance by Salma Hayek. The couple's combined net worth is $7.2 billion.

Next to that, her NFL star beau Travis Kelce’s net worth is a drop in the ocean -- reportedly up to $70 million.

Everyone’s favourite rocket man consistently ranks as one of the world’s highest-paid entertainers. His top-10 highest-grossing albums made $325 million in total, and his 2020 “Farwell Yellow Brick Road Tour” made him over $100 million from ticket sales alone. During his Las Vegas residency between 2011 and 2018, the Tiny Dancer singer would make $500,000 per show. Elton also has an extensive art collection, which experts estimate could be worth up to $200 million, featuring artists like Warhol and Basquiat. He executive produced Rocket Man as well, so it’s safe to say he made a pretty penny from the award-winning film. The EGOT winner is worth around $650 million compared to his husband, Canadian filmmaker and producer David Furnish, who is worth $50 million dollars.
