About Bret Michaels
So in this article we are going to talk about Bret Michaels net worth, which currently amounts to $12 million. As you might know, the last few years have been pretty tuff for the singer, songwriter, television producer, screenwriter and television personality, who earned international fame as a lead singer of glam metal band Poison. He had numerous physical problems and his songs are no longer as popular as they used to be. However, Bret is slowly recovering from his illnesses and creating music again. Thus, I think, this is a great time to look back at the fascinating career which boosted Bret Michaels net worth and to discuss his recent struggles in greater detail.
So as you know, the band Poison reached the peak of commercial success in the mid 1980s and remained among the best selling bands to the mid 1990s. Their breakthrough album, titled Look What the Cat Dragged In, was admitted multi-platinum by the Recording Industries Association of America. The album that followed, Open Up and Say… Ahh!, was even more commercially successful. The profits from albums’ sales during the decade of great fame and popularity, as well as the money Poison has brought from the tours, each of these factors have contributed to the general growth of Bret Michaels net worth.
Since the mid 1990s, the sales‘ numbers of band‘s albums have dropped dramatically. Despite this, Michael did not let the audience forget about him by appearing on various television series, reality shows and competitions. In 2010 the reality show following his own life, Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It, has started to air. And why did the rock star agree to take this challenge? Well, we can find the answer in his own words: „I want to tell the story. Mostly, when you see rock movies, it has to be this over-the-top thing. I want to give people a Bret Michaels movie where they see that my life is a comedy of errors. I also want to show my fans how to get through the kind of troubles that would leave most people flat on the floor.“ By the way, during the final of Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It Bret proposed to the mother of his two daughters and his long-time partner Kristi Gibson!
Although Kristi has said „yes“ and the show in general was quite popular, the year 2010 and the period that followed was pretty difficult for the star. At first he suffered subarachnoid haemorrhage (bleeding into the subarachnoid space—the area between the arachnoid membrane and the pia mater surrounding the brain), than he was diagnosed with “patent foramen ovale (PFO)“ and his marriage plans fell apart. We can only hope he will manage to fully recover and in the future we will witness Bret Michael net worth growth once again!
