Michael Jackson Is 2013′ Highest Paid Dead Celebrity In Hollywood

According to the latest compilation by Forbes magazine,American Pop King, Michael Jackson who passed away on the 25th of June 2009 in LA is the highest paid dead celebrity of 2013.

Here is how TMZ is reporting it:
Michael Jackson is KILLING IT in the graveyard … making more money than any other dead celebrity in Hollywood,including Liz Taylor and Elvis, this according to Forbes. The magazine just released its annual list of top-earning dead
celebrities … and this year, MJ took back the crown from his good friend and fellow dead-person Liz Taylor, last year’s top-earner.
Here’s the breakdown according to the mag:
1) Michael Jackson, $160 million
2) Elvis, $55 million
3) Charles Schulz, $37 million
4) Liz Taylor, $25 million
5) Bob Marley, $18 million
MJ was #2 last year, but two successful Jacko-inspired Cirque du Soleil shows have shot the King of Pop back to the top. Besides Liz Taylor’s drop, the rest of the list contains the usual suspects … Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Bruce Lee … but
there is one notable new name — Mexican singer Jenni Rivera,who died in a plane crash back in 2012.
Over four years after his death, Michael Jackson is still making waves from the great beyond.
