Who was the top-earning dead celebrity of 2017?
Answer: According to Forbes, the King of Pop dominated the annual list of the top-earning dead celebrities. Michael Jackson reportedly generated $75 million in 2017, boosted by his recent CBS Halloween special, the Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil show, his latest greatest hits album Scream, as well as a stake in the EMI music-publishing catalogue. Golf icon Arnold Palmer came in at No. 2 on this year’s list with $40 million, largely credited to sales of his AriZona lemonade and ice tea beverage that bears his name.
