Top DEAD Earner List Reviled!

 

Updated : Oct 29, 2009

Michael Jackson has come third in a list of the world's top earning dead celebrities.

Forbes magazine puts the former King of Pop behind Yves Saint Laurent and composing duo Rodgers and Hammerstein.

The fashion designer earned $350m (£214m) over the past year, dwarfing the $90m (£55m) taken in by the Jackson estate.

Laurent, who died of brain cancer in 2008, appears at the top of the index largely due to an auction of artwork.

The collection included paintings by Mondrian and Matisse.

The bulk of Jackson's posthumous cash came through selling the rights to This Is It, the film based on rehearsal footage for what would have been his London comeback concerts.

Forbes estimates this income was bumped up by the sale of around nine million albums and 5.5 million digital downloads since his death in June.

Elvis Presley came in fourth in the list, making $55m (£34m) over the last 12 months.

An agreement earlier this year over allegedly unpaid royalties from the Lord of the Rings movies saw the late JRR Tolkien earn $50m (£31m) last year, placing him fifth.

The British author died in 1973 aged 81.

John Lennon, who was shot dead in New York in 1980, came in seventh with earnings of $15m (£9m).

Here is the full list
:: 1 Yves Saint Laurent, $350m (£214m)
:: 2 Rodgers & Hammerstein, $235m (£144m)
:: 3 Michael Jackson, $90m (£55m)
:: 4 Elvis Presley, $55m (£34m)
:: 5 JRR Tolkien, $50m (£31m)
:: 6 Charles Schulz, $35m (£21m)
:: 7 John Lennon, $15m (£9m)
:: 8 Dr Seuss, $15m (£9m)
:: 9 Albert Einstein, $10m (£6m)
:: 10 Michael Crichton, $9m (£5.5m)
:: 11 Aaron Spelling, $8m (£5m)
:: 12 Jimi Hendrix, $8m £5m)
:: 13 Andy Warhol, $6m (£3.5m)
