Michael Jackson, the dead man who keeps earning billions despite not doing anything since 2009

Just think about what you could do with $2 billion if you saved it over the course of just over 10 years. Such a massive accomplishment befuddles the minds of all living beings. Michael Jackson, on the other hand, accomplished this after his death.


The Indiana-born singer and King of Pop had been at the pinnacle of his profession in the years leading up to his untimely demise, having begun his solo career in 1971 and releasing his debut solo album in 1979. Remember that The Jacksons, the family from which the late singer came, were a musical family.

There were many accolades Michael could claim from his illustrious career, including being called the most successful performer of all time and one of the best-selling music artists of all time. The 50-year-accolades old's include an incredible 15 Grammys and 39 Guinness World Records.

Even after death, the legacy remains...

Michael Jackson was already one of the wealthiest musicians in the world when he passed away, and his fortune is just growing. Since his untimely passing in 2009, Michael's family has earned an incredible wealth of about $2 billion.

According to Forbes, Michael Jackson earned $825 million in 2016 alone, making him the first celebrity of any kind to do so in a single year. In addition, Michael's passing has sent him to the top of the dead celebrity earnings chart, with his fortune now exceeding that of even Muhammad Ali.

When collected, where do these funds go?

Because a deceased person has no immediate financial needs, the primary concern is "where do these proceeds go?" Michael's will states that he gave his children 40% of his estate, his mother 40%, and gave away 20% to charity.
