Jenni Rivera may be gone, but her fans have not forgotten her, and it seems she's also gained hundreds of new ones.

La Diva de la Banda, who died in a plane crash last December, has made it to Forbes' list of Top-Earning Dead Celebrities this year. According to Forbes, the late singer, who ranked #12 on their list after earning $7million, has sold over 880,000 records since her death.

Rivera's earnings were also been boosted by her reality show I Love Jenni, which reached a total of 5.5 million viewers in its final season, and her book Unbreakable: My Story, My Way, which has sold over 400,000 copies since it was released in July.

Forbes' Top-Earning Dead Celebrities #1 spot went to Michael Jackson for the third year in a row.
