Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are highest paid celebrity couple

Queen Bey has been dethroned.

Taylor Swift and new beau Calvin Harris have been crowned the highest-paid celebrity couple of 2015.

According to Forbes, the young couple raked in US$146 million (S$195.2 million) over the past year, largely through Swift's endorsement deals with Diet Coke, Keds and Sony, and Harris with Giorgio Armani and Sol Republic headphones.

Both Swift and her Scottish DJ also individually land in the top 20 on this year’s Celebrity 100, an annual ranking released by Forbes on the world's highest-paid celebrities based on annual income.

Last year's power couple Beyonce and husband Jay Z are not far behind.

The music moguls have combined earnings of US$110.5 million, thanks to ticket sales from their collaborative On the Run tour and their individual business empires.

The full Celebrity 100 list will be announced on June 29.
