Once again the king of pop Michael Jackson tops the list of highest-earning dead celebrity. He earned more than any dead celebrity in the year 2016. MJ earned a record-breaking revenue of $825 million.
The major revenue comes by selling by part Sony/ATV media publishing. This is not the first topping the list, he is on the top of the charts every year since he passed away in 2009.
