Michael Jackson top earning dead celeb
Michael Jackson died eight years ago, but he's still generating millions of dollars.
Jackson is atop the Forbes list of top-earning dead celebrities for the fifth straight year, with $US75 million ($AU98 million). Forbes says Jackson's earnings are boosted by a new greatest hits album, a Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil show and a stake in the EMI music publishing catalogue.
Two other singers join Jackson in the top five. Elvis Presley comes in fourth with $US35 million and Bob Marley ranks fifth with $US23 million.Controversies rock Hollywood in 2017
