Disgraced pop star Michael Jackson heads a rich list of celebrities still raking it in from beyond the grave.
The singer’s estate still rakes in £46million a year from royalties – 11 years after his death at the age of 50.
Author JRR Tolkien, whose Lord Of The Rings books are worth £38million a year, came second. Elvis Presley “earns” £30million, say researchers.
Bob Marley, John Lennon, Prince and David Bowie also feature high up the listings compiled by Partycasino.com. The late Playboy boss Hugh Hefner also makes it on to the list.
A spokesperson for Partycasino.com said: “Some not only out-earn us Average Joes, but other living celebs as well.”
