Elizabeth Taylor passes away in Hollywood at age 79

Elizabeth Taylor's estate auction has helped propel the late actress past pal Michael Jackson as this year's top-earning dead celebrity.

The movie dame's estate bosses raked in $210 million US in the past year to knock Jackson from number one on Forbes' annual list.

Taylor's estate worth was swelled by last December's Christie's auction where the movie legend's jewellery, costumes and art work brought in over $180 million.

The King of Pop comes in second with $145 million and Elvis Presley's $55 million puts him third.

Peanuts creator Charles Schultz and reggae legend Bob Marley round out the top five.
