Michael Jackson may have died more than four years ago but his earning power is still as strong as ever.
The late King of Pop, who died from a lethal overdose of the surgical anaesthetic propofol in 2009, has regained the throne as Forbes' Top-Earning Dead Celebrity after racking up a blockbuster $160m (£100m) between June 2012 and June 2013.
Jackson has two Cirque du Soleil shows, his music and his half of the Sony/ATV catalogue to thank for his posthumous bank balance.
His impressive year helped him reclaim the No 1 spot from Elizabeth Taylor. He even outranked living stars including Madonna and Lady Gaga.
Madonna was 2013's top earning living celebrity with $125m.
Elvis Presley, the King of Rock n' Roll, came in second in the posthumous list with an estimated $55m despite his death in 1977. Much of the earnings come from his former Graceland home - a major tourist attraction.
Peanuts creator Charles Schulz came third with $37m.
Elizabeth Taylor, who died in 2011, earned $210 million in the 12 months to October 2012 thanks to a series of lucrative auctions at Christie's of Taylor's art, jewels and clothes but slipped to fourth place this year after her earnings dropped to $25m.
Rounding up the top five with $18m in earnings was iconic reggae idol Bob Marley. Most of his money came from Bob Marley branded merchandise.
