    The list seems to include non-TV income as well, as it looks like Howard's income is the sum of his alleged $15 mill from AGT and $80 milll from Sirius.

    "Robin, They make these outrageous claims about my income in Forbes" "I don't know where they come up with these numbers"

    How true is his $15 million salary? Like the fame whores who try to cash in with a supposed Vivid video that pays them a $1 million to get them additional publicity.

    i dont care so much about howard, but simon once again demonstrated how he has zero ethics and zero respect for his friends and zero observance of the man code. the two of them are such good role models for kids today.

    Sirius isn't paying $80 million a year for 112 shows. Howard getting $714k a show and he is losing subscriptions? His first contract paid him around $80 million a year, this contract isn't paying anywhere near that. Howard got them to agree to a very light work schedule for the reduced salary.

    Even his first contract had a lot of funny money since he was paid a sizable chunk of his salary up front in stock which proceeded to tank after he got it.

    Even if he took around half, he could still be getting $300k per show? :facepalm:

    Wow HTV must be raking in the bucks. Howard only made 20-25 mil from agt and I'm willing to bet that was over the life of the 2 year deal.

    I am betting it isn't even that much. Sirius didn't need Howard like they did when they first hired him. Sirius was also very cash strapped at the time of the second deal. He is still probably making something ridiculous like $100-200k an broadcast, but I am guessing it is far less than most people think. It clearly isn't close to what he made on his first deal or Buckwald would have leaked it with an inflated number.

    Apparently, money can't seem to buy Howard some good fashion sense, or a decent work ethic. :sdance:

    At least Simon doesn't agonize over which hideous scarf to wear. He's got other problems, these days!

    They are better than some of the bogus sites out there, they still are guessing what people make. They don't have actual access to what celebrities make. They compile information from new reports, talking with people in the industry, and other sources like annual reports. But I guarantee their numbers on a lot of celebrities are way off
