You know what they tell you when you are growing up? If you work hard, and do your best then anything is possible. Who knows, you might even be rich and make a lot of money this year if you try your hardest and keep at it.
Well, some people don't have to try hard to make money. In fact, they don't do anything at all. Why don't they do anything at all? Well, because they're dead. Now, it isn't easy to be motivated to make a lot of cash when you're dead. But still, even beyond the grave there are a lot of celebrities that are still making a ton of cash. While you go toil at some boring job all day, someone else is making millions for their family while laying in a box six feet under. Whoever said life is fair just wasn't paying attention.
This list is from each dead celebrities' pre-tax earnings between October 2014 and October 2015. Some other people that came close to making the cut from the other side are Frank Sinatra, Bruce Lee, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, and Kurt Cobain.
Without further delay here is TheRichest's list of 10 people who keep making money beyond the grave.
10 Bettie Page ($10 Million)
9 Paul Walker ($10.5 Million)
8 Albert Einstein ($11 Million)
7 John Lennon ($12 Million)
6 Marilyn Monroe ($17 Million)
5 Elizabeth Taylor ($20 Million)
4 Bob Marley ($21 Million)
3 Charles Schulz ($40 Million)
2 Elvis Presley ($55 Million)
1 Michael Jackson ($115 Million)
Jackson is arguably the most famous musical performer of all time. He is also the weirdest musical performer of all time, there's no doubt about that. Jackson has made over $100 million dollars a year, every year, since his death in 2009 from Propofol and Benzodiazepine intoxication, but if you were to ask a lot of people, the real Michael Jackson died a long time before that. He makes money from an ongoing Vegas show, the Mijac Music catalogue, music sales and half of the Sony/ATV publishing empire. So there you go, of all the dead people out there, Michael is the best at making money.
