Access Investigates: Charlie Sheen's Money Woes

With his estimated $66 million dollar “Two and a Half Men” salary over the next two seasons gone, is Charlie Sheen’s vast empire of wealth and property merely a house of cards?

Just before he was officially terminated from the hit CBS sitcom, Charlie added to his portfolio of properties when he spent an estimated $7.5 million dollars on a lush 9,000-square foot home. With expansive views, nine bedrooms, and sprawling pools and patios, the home is just around the corner from where he lives now.

While some have reported Charlie’s wealth to be as high as $85 million dollars, others believe it’s well below that. No matter what the actual amount may be, most of the money is tied up in his six properties, which also include a $2.5 million dollar home for estranged wife Brooke Mueller, and Denise Richards’ multi-million dollar mansion.

Additionally, the sum total of Charlie’s child support paid to exes Denise and Brooke has been estimated at $1.3 million dollars per year. It’s also believed Charlie still owes Brooke $1.8 million dollars to settle their prenuptial agreement and to buy her out of her share of “Sober Valley Lodge.”

But even with his $2 million-per-episode paycheck gone, it’s a stretch to think he will be financially broken. Thanks to the syndication of the 177 episodes of “…Men” already shot, Charlie could still make up to $100 million dollars — not to mention the earning potential by his new found exploitation of social media.

Due to his Ustream and Twitter record-breaking popularity – he broke a Guinness World Record for gaining over a million Twitter followers in less than two days — Charlie could potentially earn millions with product placement.
