The richest celebrity couples in the world

Celebrity power couples hold the fascination of many people. How these couples manage to bring such large amounts of money into a nuclear unit while standing firmly rooted in their love for each other can seem both inspiring and unattainable—or at least from an outsider's perspective.

Many celebrities famous for acting, singing, or modeling have ventured into other lines of business, such as investments and real estate to add to their earning portfolio. Top-earning celebrities on this list include Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith, who outside of acting have collectively invested millions worth in real estate. There's also Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, the singer-actor couple who made their share of money through tours and property ownership. 

Stacker took a look at the richest couples in the world and ranked the top 21, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Here's a look at some of your favorite celebrity couples and how they've accumulated their wealth.
