Ahhh, it's that glorious time of year again. Forbes' ever-so-popular list of highest paid celebrity couples is out, and as usual -- I'm really realizing half of Hollywood's lovey-dovey couples are broken up. Topping the list? Beyonce and Jay-Z, who make a total of $78 million combined. Casual, really.
There's one couple (well, ex-couple) that's missing, though. You know, the one that placed fifth on last year's list. The one that is blowing UP lately. Maybe you've heard of them, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart? Oh right, you most definitely have. That whole breakup thing. With the cheating. And all that stuff their friends have to say about it, it's all so horrible. Mostly because, well, it's all ANYONE is talking about.
When asked what happened to Rob and Kristen's spot, Forbes replied, "Stewart and Pattinson were, in fact, left off of the list because they are broken up."
Well, that's that. You can't argue with the facts.
I get it, the fact that Rob and Kristen aren't on the list is yet another reminder that everyone's favorite Twilight couple is dunzo (for now). But really, it's time to face the music. So what if there may never be a wedding complete with black wedding bands? Both of them have the endless potential to continue to be successful on their own, and that's an idea their fans need to attempt to focus on.
Not for nothing, the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes breakup consumed the media for all of what -- two weeks? This Robsten thing -- it's the news that keeps on brewin'. Yeah, there's a bit more of a scandal involved here, but I think it'll be WAY better for the both of 'em if we lay off ... slowly.
Oh, and for the record: Kristen made $34.5 million between May 2011 - 2012. In my eyes, that's really nothing to feel sorry for.
Are you broken up over Rob and Kristen's absence from Forbes' Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples list?
