Forbes has released its annual list of Top-Earning Dead Celebrities and it shows that Elizabeth Taylor has dethroned Michael at the top of that list.
Elizabeth’s estate has earned $210 million following the sale of her jewelry, while Michael’s estate earned $145million. Forbes estimate that Michael will return to the number one position next year as his Estate is continually generating income, while Elizabeth’s Estate earnings were a one-off.
Third on the list is Elvis Presley ($55million.) Fourth position was taken by Charles Schulz, (creator of ‘Peanuts’) with Bob Marley at Number five.
