This is what they are worth right now

Jackson saw close to 800 million in his career, it wasnt tied up in property or ventures, he saw his money in his hand and spent it.

he wasted a million a week in the 90's, no artist can ever claim that

by the mid 00's he was spending more than he was making, this guy didnt preform, only here and there, he was a recluse, u look at all those other artists they dont stop working, mj just sat on his a.ss, when he decided to do a show again, it was the biggest tour deal ever signed, 300 million for just 3 months of shows at the 02, he died..

no artist will ever be as lucrative just for his MUSIC, minus modonna

Jay, Diddy, Paul M make large chunks outside of thier music

Also Modonna is worth 700$ mil, she made over a 100 mil just off touring (MDNA tour) in 2012, highest of any artist in the world...

that list makes no sense

"Jackson's 1985 purchase of ATV Music, which included in its catalog some 250 Beatles tunes, for $47.5 million formed the basis of his stake in the music-publishing business and was by far his shrewdest music deal. Yoko Ono, John Lennon's widow, and Paul McCartney had considered bidding a combined $20 million for the collection, but Ono decided that was more than the collection was worth. Jackson's purchase price of more than double that is still far less than what the songs would sell for now.

In 1995, Jackson agreed to merge ATV with Sony's music-publishing business. The Japanese corporation paid Jackson $150 million to complete the deal and split ownership of the new company with the performer 50-50. In March 2007 an audit of Jackson's finances valued his half of Sony/ATV at $390 million."


damn so he made a $50 million purchase in 1985 ?????

I really thought Dre would be on this list...



Even though he sold the company then re-bought shares at approximately half of money earned I still thought he'd have more.

Dre was the higest earning artist in 2012, he's catching the top 10 quicker

Remember this is all net worth, most of these celebs really aint worth what it says, everything is estimated.

With Dre we know how much he made which wasd over a 100 mil as he the figures were released.

TS list is all wrong anyways, any list without Modonna is void, she was the second highest earning celeb in 2012 behind Dre...

Actual top 5 are

Andrew L Webber
Paul McCartney
Bono
Modonna
Sean Combs


You have to look at how long these people have been in the game and what type of ventures they are involved in, Andrew is a composer, he makes most of hs money from music for shows he has written, Diddy on the other hand makes his money away from music.

Lists change yearly depending on new data, Bono was NO 1 at the start of 2012 when the Facebook shares were announced, now he is back at no 3...

Its net worth

Its all guess work, they take in account sh*t they heard in the media such as shares, and deals signed, house prices, what such and such company turned over etc...

Ofcourse Diddy never has seen more physical cash than MJ. Jacksons money wasnt dependent on inflation, stocks and shares.

Net worth is basically what you people think YOU are worth, it doesnt take in account how much paper you have in the bank, you could be worth 500 mil but only have 20 mill in ur bank but the dude worth 300 mill cud have 200 mil in the bank...

Ur house cud be worth 80 million one year and the next year it will be worth 50 million, bringing ur net worth down 30 mil...its a very fickle way to guess what a celeb is worth, when reality they dont have what u think even if they sold up everything..

Also you dont know what kind of loans these celebs have taken out, you look at Trump all his real estate is built up upon mortgages and loans, he doesnt own his real estate outright, but his net worth is still high as no one will ever know what he owes in terms in loans/mortgages

We dont know how much Stunna is worth because he doesnt disclouse all of his investments, most celebs are scared of the taxman, also sometimes a certain celeb attached to a certain venture might scare investors or people away for whatever reason

Stunna is creeping up in the top 10 though, also you have to take account him and Slim are 50/50

Jay made his first 100 mill after he split from Dame....

Diddy made his first 100 mil after BIG died and from Bigs death
