Jackson had suffered sleep issues for years, it was later learned. Back in the 90s, he wrote a desperate letter to his then wife Lisa Marie Presley about how tired he was.
It read: “Lisa I truly need this rest I haven’t slept literally in 4 days now. I need to be away from phones and Business people. I must take care of my health first Im’ [sic] crazy for you.”
Since his death, Jackson has been earning millions of dollars. He’s topped Forbes’ list of highest-earning dead celebrities, with his estate earning $275 million in the year after his death, and another $170 million the following year.
