Michael Jackson Top-Earning Dead Guy … In Hollywood

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 mag 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 million3) Charles Schulz, $37 million4) Liz Taylor, $25 million5) 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.
