When Taylor Swift won an award at the Billboard Music Awards, Calvin Harris gave her a big hug and kiss... but the couple still hasn't officially announced they're dating!

Move over Jay-Z and Beyoncé! New couple Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are not only the hottest couple in the entertainment industry, but now they are the richest.

The young couple, who confirmed their relationship in April, earned $146 million collectively over the last year, according to Forbes' World's Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples of 2015

Swift has endorsement deals with Diet Coke, Keds and Sony. Her fifth studio album sold 1.287 million copies in one week, the highest selling album since 2002, and the singer is embarking on her "1989" world tour. 

Harris is currently doing a Las Vegas residency at Caesar's Palace and is the face of Giorgio Armani and Sol Republic headphones. Calvin released his fourth studio album titled "Motion" in October 2014 and sold 35,000 copies in its first week.

The 25-year-old "Shake it Off" singer and her DJ beau beat out last year's high-earning couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z. The Hip-Hop couple combined brought in an impressive $110.5 million over the last year, partly thanks to ticket sales from their "On the Run Tour" - which explains why the rap mogul was about to buy his wife a "Game of Thrones" dragon egg.

The "Single Ladies" singer has her own fragrance line and endorsement deals with Pepsi and H&M. Jay-Z owns his entertainment company Roc Nation, Armand de Brignac champagne and D'Usse cognac. 

In third place are Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert with combined earnings of $57 million, each bringing in about $28.5 million.

The full list of highest-paid celebrities will be released on June 29 on the Forbes website.
