Forbes: The Top Earning Dead Celebrities 2013

No. 1: Michael Jackson

$160 million

Singer

Died: June 25, 2009

Age: 50

Cause: Overdose/homicide

The King of Pop reclaims his postmortem cash crown after ceding it last year to pal Elizabeth Taylor. He earned the bulk of his bucks from two Cirque du Soleil shows, his Mijac Music catalog, recorded music sales and his half of the Sony/ATV publishing empire—which includes the copyright to hits by the Beatles, Lady Gaga, Eminem and Taylor Swift, among others.
