He may have had financial woes in his final years alive, but pop icon Michael Jackson has made more over the past several years than most living artists, according to some estimates. In an interview with CBS, John Branca, who is one of the executors of Michael Jackson’s estate. During the interview, it was revealed that Jackson’s will would leave 20% to charity, 40% to his three children and 40% to his mother as long as she is alive. “The whole objective of Michael’s estate plan is to take care of his mother during her lifetime and to accumulate the principle and assets for the benefit of Michael’s children” said John Branca. When Michael Jackson died, he owed about $500 million. Since his death, his estate has shoveled in over $600 million paying off his debt in less than four years. “That’s more than any single living artist has made over that period of time” according to Zack O’Malley Greenburg, a senior editor for Forbes Magazine.
