Google did add trending for the people also search for box under the knowledge panel several months ago but in this spot, it does look new to me.

Sergey Alakov spotted it and it shows not just for people but also places:

When you click on those links, i.e. "Forbes" in the Michael Jordan example above, it goes to the Forbes article citing his net worth but if you click on trending, it takes you to a query for [michael jordan net worth] which may be what is trending for his name?
