Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson will go down as one of the most famous and popular musicians of all time.  With that fame came massive fortune as he sold over one hundred million records, but unfortunately he couldn’t quite keep a handle on his financials.  A lavish lifestyle that included an amusement park in his own backyard and several lawsuits settled out of court left him 500 million dollars in the hole when he died of an overdose in 2009.  The only silver lining being that his estate has grossed two billion dollars since his death…
