You cannot believe these celebrities are still earning millions of dollars even though they are 6 feet below the ground. The most notable of them all is the King of Pop, Michael Jackson who tops the list at $825 million.

According to Forbes, Jackson’s estate owes a large bulk of its net worth to his investment in the Beatles catalog. Sony paid Jackson $115 million to partake in a 50/50 ownership deal in 1995, and in March, Jackson’s estate sold its remaining half to the entertainment conglomerate for $750 million.
