The Wealthiest Dead Celebrities

Whoever said, you can’t take it with you, was absolutely right, but it doesn’t keep celebrities from raking it in after death.  MSN had their top 5 picks of the wealthiest dead celebrities.  Here goes…..

No.5…Bob Marley at 17 million.  Money made from Marley Mellow Mood drinks, House of Marley which sells headphones, speakers, etc.

No. 4…Charles Shultz at 37 million….. His money made from, of course his Charlie Brown items.

No.3…This one surprised me.  Elvis Presely at 55 million.  I really thought he would have been No.1… His money comes from Graceland tours, sells of his music. dolls, plates, etc.

No. 2…Michael Jackson at 145 million. Of course from his music, videos, and he has a 50% stock in Sony.

No 1… And this surprised me till I read the article…. Elizabeth Taylor at 210 million… Now hold on to your wigs people. Let me explain what I read.  184 million came from the Christies Auction after her death. There were also property sales and sales of her movies.  I’m sure next year it will read differently.  Taylor probably won’t make it in the top 10 next year.

This is good for the celebrities who have family.  What about Elizabeth Taylor…. Where does her money go?  She never had kids.  I hope it goes to good charities.
I hope some of this money from the dead ones goes to good charities. There are a lot that can benefit from this.    I know one thing… This old girl won’t have to worry about making money after death….nothing for my kids to fight over.  They’ll get what I have while I’m alive to do it…
