Despite Controversy, Michael Jackson STILL The Top-Earning Dead Celebrity

I haven't been able to bring myself to watch the HBO documentary, "Leaving Neverland," which alleges that Michael Jackson was a child molester. Friends tell me it's pretty convincing. I am conflicted, but I STILL want to hear "Thriller" at Halloween. Many folks are just like me.

The late King of Pop tops Forbes’ list of the Top Earning Dead Celebrities Of 2019, bringing in $60 million, thanks to his catalog, as well as a Las Vegas show and more. This is the seventh consecutive year Jackson has topped the list.

Coming in just behind Jackson is Elvis Presley, with earnings of $39 million, followed by cartoonist Charles Schulz, who brings in $38 mil in death.
