Michael Jackson Estate Generated $2 BILLION

Michael Jackson died 6 years ago today, and TMZ has learned his estate went from the brink of bankruptcy to financial fortune ... and his kids are now better off than their famous dad.
Sources familiar with the financials tell TMZ, the estate has grossed nearly $2 billion since MJ's death. The money comes from the movies "This is It," the Cirque show "Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour," 50 million albums sold and various other ventures.
After expenses, that $2 bil gets whittled down to around $800 million -- which is a very good return.
