In Hollywood, it is pretty easy to get rich, but staying rich isn’t always as easy as one might think. We have a list of five actors who were so rich at one point that they were swimming in money, but they have all experienced some serious financial problems since. Check out 5 actors who are not nearly as wealthy as you would think:
5. Charlie Sheen
During the prime of his TV career, Charlie Sheen’s net worth was estimated to be at $150 million; however, that is no longer the case. In 2016, when Sheen went to court to ask for his child support payments to Brooke Mueller to be reduced from $55,000 per month, it became abundantly clear that most of that money was gone. In court documents, he claimed that he was bringing in approximately $87,384 a month and had monthly expenses that totaled $105,000, which didn’t include the $25,000 a month he had to pay for health care expenses not covered by his insurance. He also reported that he owed close to $1 million in legal fees and had credit card debt that totaled close to $600,000, and we’ve all heard about the $10 million he spent paying to keep people about his HIV status and all of the millions he blew on hookers and drugs. Now Sheen is only worth $20 million, which is a far cry from the $150 million he was worth only a few years ago.
