Michael Jackson Earnings and Wealth:

It is estimated that Michael Jackson earned about $750 million in his lifetime.  the last several decades of his life, sales of his recordings through Sony’s music unit have earned him an estimated $300 million in royalties. He may have also earned an additional $400 million from concerts, music publishing (including his share of the Beatles catalog) endorsements, merchandising and music videos. Estimating how much of these earnings Jackson was able to personally pocket is difficult because one has to account for taxes, recording costs and production costs.

There have also been several detailed estimates of Jackson’s net worth and these range from negative $285 million to positive $350 million.

On June 25, 2009, Jackson died while in his bed at his rented mansion at 100 North Carolwood Drive in the Holmby Hills district of Los Angeles.

Debbie Rowe, the ex-wife  of Michael Jackson  and mother of two of his children, has come the legendary singer defense.

Wade Robson, a dancer,  recently made allegations that he was sexually abused by Jackson as a child.  Robson, has filed 2 legal claims against the estate.

Rowe  told sources that the self-proclaimed alleged victim’s  “publicity-seeking attempt is opportunistic and just oozes falseness.”
