Michael Jackson net worth: Remembering King of Pop on his birthday

On August 29, 1958 Michael Jackson came into this world.

If the legend would have been with us, he would have been celebrating his 63rd birthday in 2022.

MJ passed away on June 25, 2009 but his legacy still remains along with his fan-favorite music.

Michael Jackson was an American singer and songwriter with a net worth of negative $500 million at the time of his death.

Jackson was in debt of $500 million due to decades of overspending and over-borrowing.

To date he has sold over 750 million albums and 35 million more in the years following his death.

Jackson's music catalog's copyright value was estimated to be worth $100 million.

Jackson left 20% of his assets to various children's charities.
