It's the time of the year where Forbes reveals their list of the top-earning celebrities that we've lost. For the seventh year in a row Michael Jackson is topping the list with an impressive $60 million earned from October 1, 2018, to October 1, 2019. With his streaming numbers going from 1.8 billion last year to 2.1 billion this year, he also has money coming in from his Mijac Music catalog and a deal with Sony.
The newest edition to the list is obviously Nipsey Hussle, he comes in at number #10 on the list with $11 million earned due in part to 1.85 billion streams, who knows what it may really be if his merch sales were counted in as well. Right under Nipsey, XXXTentacion can be found with $10 million earned, partially from being the most-streamed dead celebrity in the U.S. with over 5.6 billion streams. See the full list down below.

  • 13) George Harrison: $9 million
  • 12) Whitney Houston $9.5 million
  • 11) XXXTentacion $10 million
  • 10) Nipsey Hussle $11 million
