View Comments

Philadelphia, Pa (WOGL) – Even though the King of Pop has been gone for four years now, his finances remain very much alive, toppling $160 million in the past year alone.

Forbes reported that this is the third time in five years that a celeb topped the charts from the grave. It’s not just his music and his share of the Sony/ATV catalog, either. Jackson has two touring Cirque de Soleil shows, Immortal, which grossed $300 million while touring, and One at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Michael beat out good friend Elizabeth Taylor, who ranked #1 last year.
