Michael Bolton is estimated to have a net worth of $80million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, and the majority of his income has come from his career as a singer and songwriter.

Over the years he has pursued acting and appeared in the shows Meet Wally Sparks, Two and a Half Men, and was a contestant on season 11 of Dancing with the Stars.

Bolton was also a director for the documentary, American Dream: Detroit, which highlights the economic comeback of Detroit.

However, despite his success, Bolton’s finances took a hit in 1992 when he was sued by the R&B band the Isley Brothers, who claimed Bolton stole their song with his release of Love is a Wonderful Thing.

The brothers had released the same song with the same title in 1966.

In 1994, a Los Angeles court ruled in favor of the Isley Brothers and Bolton had to pay $5 million.

After appealing the verdict, in 2001, the matter was finally settled for good and instead of Bolton having to pay $5 million himself, the brothers received $4.2 million from Sony Music, $932,924 from Bolton, and $220,785 from Bolton’s songwriter.

Is Michael Bolton married?

Bolton was married to Maureen McGuire, from 1975 to 1990 and they had three daughters, Isa, Holly, and Taryn. Bolton told The Sydney Morning Herald in 2019 that he and McGuire were far too young when they got married, and he didn’t know who he was as a person.

“By my late 20s, I was already married and had three daughters,” Bolton said. “Guys in their 20s don’t have a clue who they are as human beings.

“They know what they want to become — a doctor, a lawyer, a politician — but the proper study of one’s own self?

“Men don’t get around to that until their 30s or 40s, which is roughly 10 years later than most women, who seem to know exactly who they are.”

Two years after their divorce, Bolton started dating Desperate Housewives star, Nicollette Sheridan. Their relationship lasted until 1995, but in 2005 they got back together and got engaged in March 2006.
