    Who is the richest dead celeb? Who rakes in the most posthumous money? Who is collecting the most receipts from beyond the grave? Take a guess. Okay, here's your answer. It's Michael Jackson.

    The late King of Pop topped Forbes' latest list of the top-earning dead celebrities. His estate collected a whopping $160 million over the past year.

    No. 2 was the "other" King -- Elvis Presley! He pulled in $55 million in earnings, which pales in comparison to Jacko's haul.

    Who is the true king -- MJ or Elvis?
