Five years after Michael Jackson's untimely death at age 50, the singer remains a pop culture powerhouse, proving to be just as big a moneymaker in death as in life. He's graced the stage at the Billboard Music Awards via hologram, appears on a new album of unreleased songs and is generating tens of millions of dollars a year - money that will continue to grow and keep Jackson's mother and children living like entertainment royalty. Yet Jackson's tangled finances and debts have kept his family from being the biggest beneficiaries of his estate so far. —AP
