It’s been over a decade since Charlie Sheen was ousted from his smash series Two and a Half Men. Sheen sued producer Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros. Studios for $100 million over his layoff, but his grievance was never about money.
He was already the highest-paid actor on television at the time, and his worth was assessed at a phenomenal $150 million. The decision seemed to be entirely motivated by his injured ego.
The lawsuit was ultimately settled through arbitration, but perhaps he should have followed through. Charlie Sheen’s net worth has decreased dramatically after years of reckless spending.
As recently as last year, he resorted to making Cameo videos for money. Find out the details on how Sheen squandered his riches and what his net worth is today.
Charlie Sheen Per Episode Salary
During the 1980s, Charlie Sheen became a household name thanks to his appearances in Platoon, Wall Street, and Major League, but he achieved greater success on television decades later. On CBS's sitcom Two and a Half Men, he portrayed Charlie Harper beginning in 2003.
The sitcom starred Sheen for eight seasons and was a rating powerhouse, averaging a record-breaking 24 million viewers at its peak. As of the end of his final season, Sheen was paid $1.8 million each episode for his performance.
Following his dismissal for “dangerously self-destructive conduct,” he briefly retained his title as the highest-paid television actor. Between 2012 and 2014, Sheen starred in two seasons of the FX comedy Anger Management.
The Anger Management arrangement, according to The Hollywood Reporter, permitted Sheen to take home a lesser compensation per episode up front in exchange for almost 40% of the series' profits. Between $75 million and $200 million might be Sheen's share of the show's 100-episode runtime.

Charlie Sheen Had A Wild Lifestyle During His Career
Sheen's portrayal of a womanizing, hard-partying bachelor on Two and a Half Men was well-received by viewers. As it turns out, his character was based on reality.
His Relationship Woes
The actor was in rehab for drinking for a month in 1990. After Kelly Preston was shot in the arm at their Los Angeles home, USA TODAY claimed that he had engaged to her.
His testimony five years later revealed that he paid Heidi Fleiss over $50,000 for the services of her staff, whom she referred to as “Hollywood Madam.”
His ex-girlfriend Brittany Ashland pled no contest to attacking him two years later. Sheen returned to rehab in 1998 after a near-fatal overdose.
His marriage to Denise Richards in 2002, which resulted in the birth of their two children, indicated that he had finally found a sense of permanence. But three years later, Richards filed for divorce, citing Sheen's substance misuse and threats of violence as grounds for divorce.
Sheen's third marriage, to Brooke Mueller, ended in the same way. A restraining order was issued against her ex-husband, and at one point, she had their twin sons removed from his house by the police.

Rehab, Blackmail, And A Life-Changing Diagnosis
Sheen kept doing the same thing over and over again. For the next few years, he was in and out of rehab, was the subject of numerous assault charges, and had s*x with a variety of adult actors and actresses. On November 16, 2015, Sheen made the shocking announcement that he had HIV.
His current status was explained in a statement that he gave to the Today show and distributed to the public. It said, “Personal disbelief, karmic uncertainty, humiliation, and rage lead to a temporary yet catastrophic plunge into profound substance misuse and fathomless drinking. Self-inflicted wound. Problem was, I had forgotten how hardy and fearless I am.”
