Forbes: Top-Earning Dead Celebrities 2012

6 of 11

Elvis Presley

The King of Rock n’ Roll’s earnings are flat this year—the closure of his "Viva Elvis" show in Las Vegas was offset by an uptick in Graceland attendance due to last year’s unusually warm weather. The estate’s value was clear to billionaire Leon Black, whose Apollo Global Management purchased CKX, the parent company of American Idol and the estates of both Elvis and Muhammad Ali, for $509 million last year.
