Michael Jackson, l’artiste décédé qui a gagné le plus d’argent cette année

(FILES) This file photo taken on May 15, 1998 shows pop music superstar Michael Jackson announcing his plans to organize and perform a series of concerts to benefit the World Peace Foundation for Children during a press conference in Beverly Hills, CA. A newly surfaced police report related to a 2003 raid on Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch shows the late pop star's penchant for pornography and attraction to children. Jackson was acquitted in 2005 of child molestation following a 14-week trial, and the report published on June 21, 2016 by the celebrity and gossip website Radar Online was related to evidence submitted in that case. The report contains details about various books, magazines and documents seized at Jackson's secluded California home in November 2003. The police report states that though the documents were not considered illegal, "this type of material can be used as part of a 'grooming' process by which people (those seeking to molest children) are able to lower the inhibitions of their intended victims and facilitate the molestation of said victims." / AFP PHOTO / VINCE BUCCI

Michael Jackson, l’artiste décédé qui a gagné le plus d’argent cette année

Neuf ans après sa mort, Michael Jackson fait toujours recette. Selon le classement établi par Forbes, qui évalue la fortune des artistes morts, Michael Jackson arrive cette année en tête des stars décédées les mieux payées. Avec 825 millions de dollars, tout de même.

C’est grâce à Sony, que le prince de la pop a tant gagné cette année. Le géant japonais a en effet racheté en mars 2016 la part de Michael Jackson dans ATV/Music pour la somme de 750 millions de dollars.

Bowie, Prince et Snoopy

Une opération juteuse pour l’organisme qui gère le patrimoine de la star. Michael Jackson détenait 50% des parts de Sony/ATV Music, achetées en 1985 47,5 millions de dollars. Sony récupère ainsi l’intégralité des droits sur quelques jeunes artistes comme… les Beatles, Lady Gaga, Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan…

Parmi les autres stars disparues les mieux rémunérées en 2016, Forbes classe en deuxième position Charles Schultz, le « papa » de Snoopy, mort en 2000, qui a bénéficié de l’adaptation sur grand écran de son comic strip.

Il est suivi par Elvis Presley, mort en 1977. Prince a fait son entrée dans le classement, après sa mort inattendue le 21 avril 2016. Viennent ensuite Bob Marley, mort en 1981, John Lennon, assassiné en 1980 et David Bowie, disparu le 10 janvier 2016.
