When most of us die we are buried by loved ones and tragically mourned. The majority of us leave behind either debt or inflict costs on those we’ve left behind due to funeral costs and estate settlements. However, there are a privileged few (well, a little more than a few) that actually create prosperity in the afterlife and provide for the non-departed. These are generally wealthy wall street investors, genius inventors who have sold their idea to millions, and of course, the late, great celebrities.
Forbes listed the top-earning dead celebrities and detailed their net-income that they earned throughout the time frame of October of 2011 to October of 2012. The top of the list was Elizabeth Taylor who passed away last year at the age of 79. The majority of the money she earned over the time period was from the auction of her belongings which ranged from priceless art to gem studded jewelry.
Michael Jackson, the king of pop, was second on the list and compiled his post-mortem fortune due to his 50% stake in Sony’s ATV catalog which consists of music from music superstars such as The Beatles, Lady GaGa, and Taylor Swift. His Cirque Du Soleil inspired show also racked up a decent sized check for the singer.
The whole list is detailed at Forbes.com but the top five earners and their yearly salaries are as listed below:
1.) Elizabeth Taylor- $210 million
2.) Michael Jackson- $145 million
3.) Elvis Presley- $55 million
4.) Charles Schulz- $37 million
5.) Bob Marley- $17 million
