His death – in June 2009 – shocked the world. And now, seven years on, Michael Jackson is still raking in the mega-bucks.

In fact, the iconic pop superstar is this year's biggest earning celebrity – dead or alive. 

According to Forbes, the King Of Pop topped raked in $825m (€752m) in pretax earnings.

Boosting Jackson’s estate for 2016  was the sale of his half of the Sony/ATV music-publishing catalogue, which included a library of Beatles songs; that alone fetched $750m (€684m) in March.

He originally purchased the catalogue in 1985 for $47.5m (€43.3m) and sold a 50 percent stake to Sony for $115m (€105m) in 1995, according to Forbes.

Living celebrities such as Dr Phil ($88m), Diddy ($62m) and Sofía Vegara ($43m) all pale in comparison.

Also joining Jackson on the Forbes list of richest dead celebrities were Peanuts creator Charles Schultz at No. 2 ($48m/€43.75m), golf legend Arnold Palmer ($40m/€36.5m) and Elvis Presley ($27m/€24.5m).


It was the documentary that hooked us all last Christmas, and now it won't be long until Steven Avery will be able to tell all in his first ever broadcast interview.

Steven is set to speak to Dr Phil on his daytime talk show next month, but of course it will be a phone interview as the Wisconsin native remains in prison.

The host of the show will also welcome Steven's newly-announced fiancée Lynn Hartman, where she will discuss their relationship and what it's like being with someone behind bars.

Steven was convicted in 2007 for the murder of Teresa Halbach and is serving a life sentence in Waupun Correctional Institute in Wisconsin.

Shortly after Making A Murderer came out, Steven filed an appeal against his case.

We're looking forward to the second season of the series to come out.



On Christmas Day in 1996, JonBenet Ramsey was bludgeoned and strangled to death – and then discarded in the basement of her family’s home.

Today, close-to 20 years on, her killer has never been found and her murder remains one of the world’s most high-profile mysteries.

However, two events have recently shined the spotlight once again on the small mountainous city of Boulder in Colorado – where the blonde child beauty pageant star grew up before her death at the age of just six.

Firstly, there is the release of a forthcoming documentary – The Killing Of JonBenet: The Truth Uncovered, a film to which her father, John, lends his first-hand experiences.

Secondly, and arguably more significantly, her brother, Burke, has agreed to be interviewed by the famed Dr Phil – and in the process he opens up publicly about the brutal death of his sister for the very first time.

Both John and Burke – as well as her late mother Patsy – were all at one stage suspects in the case. 

"I think the JonBenét Ramsey case is the biggest unsolved murder mystery of our generation,” Phil McGraw has now said.

“And the missing link is Burke Ramsey, because in 20 years he has never spoken publicly and also he was interrogated three times," he added.

The exclusive sit-down with Dr Phil begins airing on September 12 and runs as a three-part mini-series.

A sneak-peak clip to promote the screening reveals that Burke wants to honour his sister's "memory by doing this interview. I don’t want anyone to forget".

"I remember the viewing," he adds. "The casket was small. Her eyes were closed."

Burke furthermore admits: "I know people think I did it, that my parents did it. I know that we were suspects."

The Ramsey family always denied having anything to do with JonBenet’s death and were officially cleared in 2008, two years after Patsy Ramsey died following a 13-year battle with ovarian cancer.

Investigators never found any signs of a break-in at the property. Afterwards it was discovered that 38 registered sex offenders lived within just 3.5km of the family's home at the time of JonBenet's death.

Patsy told police she had found a two-and-a-half page ransom note that demanded $118,000 for her daughter's safe return.

Coincidentally, this figure was almost the exact amount her husband received in bonuses yearly. Investigators ruled out John after handwriting analysis, but Patsy's results were deemed inconclusive.


Amber Rose is going to be popping up on your TV screen very, very soon.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amber is getting her own prime time talk show, which is going to be produced by… erm, Dr. Phil.

Dr. Phil's son owns his own production company and since Amber is good friends with Phil, they thought the unnamed Amber show would be a great idea.

"Amber has inspired millions of young women by overcoming homelessness to become a wildly successful entrepreneur," VH1's Chris McCarthy told the site.

"A true multihyphenate, she is a devoted mother, a strong advocate for women's rights and a celebrated author all of which make her an ideal host."

"Amber is a perfect addition to the VH1 family because our audience is interested in hearing unique perspectives from those who are unapologetically themselves and not afraid to take a stand on issues they are passionate about."

We can only imagine what her talking points are going to be on the show. Certainly controversial… 

There has been no word as to what the show will be called or its premiere date, but it's definitely something to look out for.


Almost a year on from his wife's death, Nick Gordon has decided to break his silence and appear on long-running talkshow, Dr. Phil, in order to set the record straight and give his side of the harrowing story.

The 20-year-old, who was in a relationship with Bobbi Kristina Brown – the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown – will finally open up about the events following Bobbi's untimely death last year.

Nick, who appeared on Dr. Phil a few months after his girlfriend's hospitalisation but prior to her tragic death, has since kept silent on the matter, but all that's due to change as he takes a seat with the popular TV psychologist.

While Nick, who was accused of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and transferring money from Bobbi's account into his own without permission, was not charged with the offences, suspicion appears to still surround him.

After an autopsy in March confirmed that Whitney's daughter died from drug intoxication and complications related to water immersion, Nick's attorney, Randy Kessler, again asserted his client's innocence.
