June 25 marked the sixth anniversary of the death of legendary music icon Michael Jackson. However, TMZ reports that his children are doing better financially than they have when he was alive, with his estate grossing about $2 billion since his passing. After accounting for expenses, they were able to hold on to $800 million (which still gets cut almost in half after the taxation process), and a large portion the income is due to the release of his highly successful film in 2009 This Is It, which documents his final Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour, as well as other factors such as having more than 50 million albums sold.
