Michael Jackson brings in two billion after death
The 'Thriller' hitmaker died in 2009 but since his passing, posthumous business dealings have
brought in an average of over $360 million a year, recently-audited records have shown.
The paperwork confirmed Sony bought the 'Billie Jean' singer's 10% lifetime rights to the EMY
catalogue for $287.5 million and he earned over $72 million from separate work deals.
In the years after his death, Michael's account was around $500 million in debut, but now the net
value of his property, cash accounts and overall earnings are $888,279,305.
And a note stated: "In excess of [$150, 000, 000] of gross receipts was received between January 1, 2019 and December 31 2021."
A lawyer for the estate praised executors John Branca and John McClain for their work
restructuring the financial arrangements of the late singer, who is survived by children Prince, 25, Paris, 24, and Bigi, 20.
