Michael Jackson has been named the highest earning dead celeb by Forbes Magazine.
According to them he made $275 million while the nearest competition came from Elvis Presley, whose estate made $60 million.
Jackson’s family made the cash from CD sales, the This Is It movie plus lucrative tie in product deals.
Lacey Rose from Forbes said: "Thanks to a lucrative catalogue, hit film and album sales, the late king of pop earned more in the last year than Lady Gaga, Madonna and Jay-Z, combined.”
John Lennon came fifth on the list, after earning an estimated $17m whilst dead. Lord Of The Rings author JRR Tolkein also made the Top 5.
