Michael Jackson is the billion dollar man

Michael Jackson could have raked in as much as $1.5 billion had he lived … at least that’s what an entertainment money man told jurors today in MJ’s wrongful death case.

Accounting guru Arthur Erk testified … Jackson could have earned minimum $1.1 billion if he performed a worldwide concert and showcased his music in Las Vegas.  And Erk felt if ticket prices were high enough, the figure would soar to $1.5 bil by the time Michael turned 65.

There are a couple of problems.  First, MJ never planned a worldwide tour.  The “This Is It” tour was limited to London.  Second, the family is seeking more than $40 billion.
