Late 'Thriller' singer Michael Jackson has earned $90 million since he died on June 25, and has been named the third Top-Earning Dead Celebrity.  Shocked

Michael Jackson has earned $90 million since he died.

The late 'Thriller' singer - who passed away from acute Propofol intoxication on June 25 - came third in Forbes.com's annual Top-Earning Dead Celebrities list with the huge financial haul.

Michael was the highest ranking deceased singer, after bringing in the enormous sum from radio play, royalties from album sales, rights to his name and royalties from his stake in the Sony/ATV music catalogue.

Since Michael's shock passing there have also been numerous sales of memorabilia, iconic outfits and even a lock of his hair.

Forbes Senior Editor Matthew Miller said: "The money might be drying up in Hollywood, but there's still plenty of cash being made in the graveyard. The earning power of dead celebrities is more powerful than ever before."

Elvis Presley dropped down from first position last year to fourth this time round with earnings of $55 million.

He was replaced at the top by fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent who raked in a staggering $350 million for his famous clothing label and from the sale of his art collection early this year, following his death in June 2008.

Songwriting duo Rodgers and Hammerstein - full name Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II - earned the second highest figure with revenue made from their popular Broadway musicals, including 'Oklahoma!', 'Carousel', 'South Pacific' and 'The Sound of Music'
