Even In Death...Michael Jackson Tops Forbes List Of Highest-Paid Dead Celebrities With $825 Million

Although it’s been nine years since his passing, the King of Pop's lucrative empire only continues to grow, as Michael Jackson earns another No. 1 spot, this time on Forbes' 2016 Top-Earning Dead Celebrities list. Sony paid the singer $115 million for a 50/50 partnership for Sony/ATV Publishing after Jackson initially bought the Sony/ATV publishing company for $47 million back in 1985 (the equivalent to $160 million today). Earlier this year, Sony bought Jackson's half for $750 million, giving the pop legend his highest payout to date.
