OK, let me get this straight. Michael Jackson is dead and still earns more than I do, living? 😱😭😭😭. According to a recent Forbes list, Michael earns a whooping $825million 😱. Although, the reason he made that much money was due to his estate's decision to sell his half-share of the Beatles catalogue to Sony for $750 million.
The Thriller star had purchased the rights to the Fab Four's music back in 1984 for $47.5 million and then sold 50 percent of it to Sony in 1995 for $115 million.

2: Author and cartoonist Charles Schulz - $48 million
