Beyoncé is beyond successful. She is a living icon – one of the bestselling musical artists of all time, nominated for more Grammy Awards than any other women in history, and an embodiment of female empowerment. She is also one half of the world’s premier power-couple, with husband Jay-Z, and a canny businesswoman with a plethora of branding partnerships, property investments and interests. All of which amounts to an estimated net worth of US$400 million, according to Forbes. And after working hard to build that wealth, she knows how to spend it. Queen Bey, as fans love to call her, is known to indulge in multimillion-dollar mansions, luxurious holidays and yachting adventures, and beauty treatments. She's also an excellent gift giver, having presented husband Jay-Z with a private jet and a car, and given daughter Blue Ivy a doll worth five figures in US dollars on her birthday. A 38-year-old mother of three, Beyoncé also spreads her wealth beyond her family, donating it far and wide, including to victims of natural disasters and towards education. How the voice stars of The Lion King spend their money Find out how one of the world's highest-paid celebrities – and one of the richest self-made women – spends her fortune. The fortune Beyoncé currently has an estimated net worth of US$400 million, thanks to her music royalties, touring, acting and multiple endorsements. From 2016 to 2017 alone, she earned US$60 million, making her one of the world's highest-paid celebrities, according to Forbes . A lot of this came from her Formation World Tour in 2016, which grossed an eye-watering quarter of a billion dollars. She and husband Jay-Z wrapped up their On The Run II Tour in October 2018 , which earned more than US$250 million – the couple’s highest-grossing tour together to date. Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s joint album is a work of passion And 2018 was a busy year for Beyoncé. Before setting off on tour, she headlined Coachella – gracing the scene-stealing California festival with a huge performance spectacle, featuring a cast of around 100 – a performance watched by millions around the world, and now the subject of a Netflix movie ( which this month controversially failed to win a single Emmy Award – despite six nominations ). Money estimates that she was paid US$3 million for her performance. At the end of 2018, Beyoncé also performed to a very different audience, as part of lavish celebrations marking the wedding of Isha Ambani , the daughter of India's richest man. While no fee was disclosed, it’s unlikely Bey played for free. Beyond the music – Bey’s business ventures But Beyoncé's wealth doesn't just come from making music and performing. Along with Jay-Z, she holds “significant equity” in Tidal, the music streaming service developed by her husband, which is reportedly worth US$600 million. She is notably also one of the few artists who have repeatedly held up their music from appearing on rival streaming platforms, with landmark album “Lemonade” only appearing on Spotify this year, three years after its release. Beyoncé has also dabbled in business ventures. In 2015, she set up on-demand vegan meal delivery service 22 Days Nutrition . And she's made waves in clothing and merchandise. In 2016, she launched activewear line Ivy Park with Topshop. At the time, items in the collection ranged from US$15 to US$265. In April 2019, she relaunched the line in a partnership with Adidas. She also launched Beyoncé Heat, a fragrance line that made US$75,000 in sales in its first day. She's reportedly sold US$400 million worth of the fragrance. And that's not her only foray into fragrance. Beyoncé has also been the face of multiple endorsements, starring in a Giorgio Armani fragrance ad and launching Tommy Hilfiger's fragrance True Star, for which she was reportedly paid US$250,000. Pop star Beyoncé and Adidas team up to design shoes and clothes In 2012, she signed a US$50 million deal with Pepsi, which included a new commercial during the Super Bowl. She reportedly had a significant amount of control in the partnership. She's also signed endorsement deals with a diverse array of household brands, including Nintendo DS, L'Oréal, and American Express. A multi-faceted artist of many talents, Beyoncé has also banked a pretty penny through her on-screen acting work. She reportedly earned US$12.5 million for her role in 2006’s Dreamgirls – not counting the reported million she was expected to make for the soundtrack. Where she has invested With so many varied income streams, Beyoncé is America's 51st-richest self-made woman, according to Forbes . Like many millionaires, Beyoncé invests in real estate. She and Jay-Z spend a lot of time in the Hamptons. They used to rent an estate there for US$400,000 a month before swapping it for a waterfront house rental that cost US$500,000 a month. With an average home price of US$7.1 million, what’s it like to live in the Hamptons? In 2017, they finally bought a holiday home there for nearly US$26 million. It's next to the exclusive Georgica Pond and means the couple are neighbours with Martha Stewart, Steven Spielberg and Russell Simmons. The same year, they paid US$88 million for a new mansion in Bel-Air, with a US$52 million mortgage. It was reportedly the most expensive sale of 2017 in Los Angeles County. Beyoncé also owns a converted church in New Orleans, which she and Jay-Z reportedly bought for US$2.6 million. And when she was pregnant with twins Rumi and Sir, she rented a villa in Malibu for US$500,000 a month from which to enjoy her maternity leave. It recently sold for roughly US$50 million. How do big time celebrities say thank you on Mother’s Day? In other real estate moves, Beyoncé reportedly bought a US$5.9 million Houston property for her mother, as well as Cher's former home in Malibu for roughly US$40 million. She recently sold her New York City condo for nearly US$10 million. Holidaying in style But Beyoncé doesn't spend all her time at her pads. She and Jay-Z often holiday in the Dominican Republic, where they've stayed at a US$19.5 million, 35,000 sq ft estate. The couple also frequently visit Paris, where they stay in a penthouse at hotel Le Meurice for US$20,000 a night. That's not to mention their holidays to Italy, Ibiza and Brazil. Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian promote veganism – so what? But her most lavish holiday was arguably on board superyacht Galactica Star, worth US$73 million. It costs roughly US$900,000 a week to charter – and you have to know the owner. In 2017, she and Jay-Z kept it a little more low-key, celebrating their anniversary in the Grand Canyon. Family life, Carter-style: Uber-luxe gifts for Jay-Z and the kids We don't know what Beyoncé gifted Jay-Z for their anniversary, but we do know she's generally generous. She did, after all, give him a US$2 million Buggati Veyron supercar for his 41st birthday, in 2010. Two years later Bey gave Jay a US$40 million Bombardier Challenger 850 private jet, and a US$500,000 sapphire ring, to celebrate the birth of the couple’s first child, Blue Ivy. Incidentally, Forbes estimates Jay-Z’s own personal fortune to be more than US$1 billion. Beyoncé gets around in stylish wheels, too: a custom US$1 million Mercedes van with its own washroom and US$150,000 sound system. What cars do billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg drive? And she's always looking good behind the wheel. Beyoncé wears US$60 mink eyelashes and throws them out after every use. Assuming she wears them daily, that adds up to more than US$21,000 a year. She also reportedly spends US$1,000 on manicures. Each time. Beyoncé is also a client of Jacob Arabo, better known as “Jacob the Jeweller”, who sells watches and jewellery to the elite. Pieces can cost anywhere from US$200,000 to US$1 million. Beyoncé looks and dresses her best not just on the red carpet, but for her dates with Jay-Z. They're often spotted courtside at NBA games, which can cost anywhere from four to six figures depending on the game. Beyoncé also knows how to wine and dine. She and Jay-Z reportedly spent almost US$100,000 on drinks for VIP guests at an Atlanta nightclub, in 2013. And they've dined at the finest restaurants, such as Le Cirque in New York. When she's not dining out, Beyoncé still splurges on food-related costs at home. She reportedly spends US$7,500 a month for a live-in chef and US$4,000 a month for a dietitian. Vegan revolution: Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus and Will.I.am agree on one thing But Beyoncé doesn't just indulge for herself and Jay-Z – she also splurges on her children. She reportedly gave birth to Blue Ivy in the exclusive birthing suite at Manhattan's Lenox Hill Hospital, which costs US$1,700 a night. It was decked out with four big-screen televisions and room service. And for Blue Ivy's first birthday, Beyoncé gifted her daughter an US$80,000 diamond-encrusted Barbie doll, at the US$100,000 birthday party she threw for her. It’s a shame she’s unlikely to remember a second of it. She also dresses Blue Ivy in designer duds, like a US$2,100 Gucci dress, and a butterfly and Swarovski crystal metallic Mischka Aoki dress that ranges from US$8,405 to US$10,637. And before twins Rumi and Sir were born, she and Jay-Z spent more than US$75,000 on matching gold cots. Giving back – Beyoncé’s charitable causes good-hearted gestures Beyoncé also spreads the wealth around outside her family. She recently announced the donation of US$100,000 to four historically black colleges and universities. Beyoncé has also donated a lot of time and money toward natural disaster relief. A native Houstonian, she paid for meals and made a monetary donation in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Did Jay-Z buy Beyoncé the most outrageous romantic gift ever? (It was an island) After Hurricane Katrina, she founded Knowles-Temenos Place Apartments for those displaced from the storm. She reportedly has given at least US$7 million to keep it running. She also visited Haiti in 2017 while it was still recovering from the earthquake that devastated the country years before. Her own charitable organisation, BeyGood, does everything from funding scholarships and working with Unicef to fighting for gender equality and raising money for natural disasters. In December 2013, she and Jay-Z went to Walmart and bought everyone in the store a US$50 gift card – to the total tune of US$27,000. And when filming for her role in the 2008 movie Cadillac Records – in which she played soul legend Etta James – Beyoncé donated her US$4 million salary to the Phoenix House, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre headquartered in New York. She also opened an affiliate cosmetology school, which provides Phoenix House residents with a seven-month training programme. So far, she's worked and supported 31 charities, including Look to the Stars, MusiCares, Stand Up to Cancer, and more. No wonder fans call her Queen Bey. Want more stories like this? Sign up here .
