Jackson started his musical career when he joined the Jackson Brothers in 1964. A year later, he became the lead vocals with his older brother, Jermaine. During his stint, the group renamed as Jackson 5 and had numerous chart-topping singles. He began his solo career in 1971.

With the success of his albums and numerous world tours, Jackson has been known as the King of Pop. His controversial life became public when the allegation of child molestation surfaced in 1993 and 2003.

Billboard revealed that the estimated net worth of Michael Jackson is larger than what it was when he was still alive. They also claimed that the MJ Inc. acquired a total revenue of not less than $1 billion a year after his death due to the artist’s new record deal with Sony Music which would extend until 2017, plus his successful concert films. Billboard deeply examines the various revenue streams that have entered the Jackson estate from 2009-2010.

Then, while in Sydney, Australia for his HIStory Australian leg, he tied the knot with his longtime friend, Debbie Rowe in 1996 and had two children, Paris-Michael Katherine and Michael Joseph Jr.

Meanwhile, on February 22, 2002, his third child, Prince Michael II was born which the identity of the surrogate mother is unknown. Just a few weeks before the start of his much-anticipated series of comeback concerts, This Is It that was supposed to be held at London’s O2 Arena on July 13, 2009.
