Michael Jackson who died seven years ago is still making money. In 2006, the King of Pop earned a whopping $825 million.

According to Forbes, Jackson has generated so much revenue following his estate’s decision to sell his half-share of the Beatles catalogue to Sony for $750 million.

The King of Pop purchased the rights to Beetle’s music back in 1984 for $47.5 million and then sold 50 percent of it to Sony in 1995 for $115 million. His remaining share was sold to Sony in March this year.
