11 Richest Dead Celebrity Earners in 2015

Celebrities never stop earning money, even after they die. In most cases their estates continue to cash in on global use of their films, faces, and franchises, ensuring their earning power lives forever. That’s the premise behind Forbes’ bizarrely fascinating “Top-Earning Dead Celebrities of 2015,” which ranks top-earning celebrities who are no longer with us. To compile their list, Forbes looked at each celebrity’s earnings between Oct. 1, 2014, and Oct. 1, 2015. According to that Insidermonkey experts made a list of 11 richest dead celebrity earners in 2015.

Michael Jackson is predictably first on the list at $115 million, largely thanks to a Vegas show, music sales, and a share in Sony/ATV publishing. After him comes Elvis ($55 million) and then, surprisingly, Charles Schulz, who created the Peanuts cartoons—The Peanuts Movie comes out Nov. 6, which led to a boost in Schulz’ assets. Bob Marley is number four at $21 million, and Elizabeth Taylor, who pulled in $20 million thanks to her perfume empire, is No. 5.
