1. Michael Jackson, musician, died in 2009 at the age of 50 from an overdose.

The King of pop music, who died eight years ago, occupies the first place in this list for the fifth time in a row. The abandoned empire, which in the last months of the singer's life seemed to be completely bankrupt, brings his heirs more and more income. In 2017, Jackson "received" $75 million. Of course, this year was not as successful as last year, when Jackson "earned" $ 825 million.

In 1985, Michael Jackson co—founded the ATV music studio - then the producers dissuaded him from this project, but 10 years later the sale of half of the shares brought $ 115 million. Now the rest of the share was bought for 75 million.
