What is Michael Jackson’s net worth? While he died in 2009, his fortune has continued to grow. Michael Jackson, or you might know him as the ‘King of Pop’, was born back on August 29, 1958. Unlike Drake, Beyonce, or even Eminem, Jackson didn’t have much of a childhood because he became the lead singer of his family’s popular Motown group, the Jackson 5.

He was famous from the start, which probably contributed to his troubling (albeit extremely successful) life. At the age of 13, Jackson started his solo career. He released his debut solo album in 1972 and it peaked at number 14 on the US charts. It sold over 3.2 million copies worldwide. Needless to say, Michael Jackson’s net worth was more than most teenagers his age.

His second album, Ben, peaked at number 5 and got Jackson his first solo number one single. His third and fourth studio albums were not that successful, and he ended up leaving Motown Records. He made an epic comeback in 1979 with his fifth solo album, Off the Wall.

The album peaked at number three on the Billboard 200 and was a huge commercial success. It also included the hit single, Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough. The album was nominated for two Grammy awards. Throughout the years, Off the Wall has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide, which makes it one of the best-selling albums in history.

In 1982, Jackson hit number one on every single chart in the world with his sixth studio album, Thriller. It’s difficult to explain just how popular this album was/is. In just one year after its release, it became the world’s best-selling album with over 66 million copies sold. It also won a record-breaking eight Grammy awards in 1984. In 2003, Rolling Stone put the album at number 20 on their ‘500 Greatest Albums of All Time’ list.

The success continued for Jackson in 1987 with the release of his seventh studio album, Bad. It once again topped the charts and broke records. The album featured a record-breaking five number one songs, including The Way You Make Me Feel and Man in the Mirror. The album has sold over 30 million copies worldwide.

He went on to release three more studio albums and yes, they all hit number one on the US Billboard 200. The success continued for Jackson in 1987 with the release of his seventh studio album, Bad.

Of course, there is a darker side to Jackson. In 1993, allegations of child molestation against Jackson came out. This led to a slight decline in his career. Throughout the years, multiple people have come forward claiming Jackson molested them at his Neverland Ranch. In early 2019, the documentary Leaving Neverland was released, examining the accusations against Jackson. It’s made a lot of people question whether or not they can still enjoy his music.

As most of you know, Jackson passed away in June of 2009. He left his fortune to his three children. At the time of his death in 2009, Jackson had an estimated net worth of $500 million. According to recent reports, his estate has made over $2 billion since his death. Michael Jackson’s net worth is in the same league as Jay Z, Micheal Jordan, and Jerry Seinfeld!
