$200 million is an astonishing amount to just about everybody in the world, but if you’re Jay-Z and Beyonce, you can afford to drop it all at once … and still be one of the richest couples on the planet.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … the two paid $200 million CASH for the 30,000-square-foot Malibu mansion purchased from William Bell, one of the biggest art collectors in the world.

According to Forbes, Jay is worth $2.5 billion … thanks to his lucrative liquor businesses, Ace of Spades and D’Usse, his music catalog, and his fine art collection — with pieces from Basquiat.

In 2022, Forbes estimated Beyoncé’s net worth to be just shy of $500 million … crediting her tours, music catalog, and appearances in feature films to the majority of her wealth.
