It looks like Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been dethroned from the top of Forbes' list of Highest Paid Celebrity Couples, a position they've held since 2013. So who are the new enviable rulers? Forbes reports that they're none other than our July cover girl Taylor Swift and her hunky DJ boyfriend Calvin Harris.

Although the two are still new to the relationship scene, the both of them earn about $146 million USD (approx. RM550 million) annually which is $136 million more than Beyoncé and Jay-Z. It's not surprising really; Taylor would've eventually taken over anyway with her endorsement deals with Sony, Keds and Diet Coke.

Calvin isn't doing too bad himself as he has deals with Giorgio Armani and Sol Republic headphones. But fans of Beyoncé and Jay-Z needn't worry because they're still on the list right behind TayVin (Caylor? CalTay?) and followed by Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. The 'Highest Paid Celebrity Couples' list is part of Forbes' rollout of their upcoming annual Celebrity 100 that will be published on 29 June.
