Porn star Ron Jeremy, who has a Guinness record for most appearances in adult films was indicted on more than 30 counts of sexual assault on August 19. The indictment was made by a grand jury and unsealed on August 25, coming nearly a year after he was first charged. According to the indictment, Jeremy assaulted around 21 women, between the ages of 15 and 51 over the past two decades. 

Jeremy was first charged in June 2020, initially for sexually assaulting four women. Then in August 2020, he was charged with an additional 20 counts, with cases going back to 2004. In September, we reported on how police found several notes in Jeremy's apartment while executing a search warrant. Police found notes like "he made me squirt" and "don't take women into bathrooms" in the actor's LA residence.

Having worked in the film industry for decades, including in non-adult films, Jeremy had built quite a reputation. He appeared in over 2,000 adult films, and a large number of non-adult films, TV shows, and even music videos. As a result, he also built a considerable net worth. But even that may seem to be insufficient to pay for his bond, which is set at $6.6 million. Wondering how much he's worth? You'd be surprised.



 

 

What is Ron Jeremy's net worth?

Having acted for decades in Hollywood, Jeremy's net worth is not as large as you would imagine. There's no clear consensus on his exact net worth. Celebrity Net Worth estimates he is worth just $1 million, while some others say he could be worth as much as $6 million. Reportedly, most of that money came not from Jeremy's film appearances, but his endorsements. He's also made some investments outside of films, which have helped boost his net worth.

In 2007, Jeremy released a memoir titled 'The Hardest (Working) Man in Showbiz', It's unclear how much he made from the book, but it would have been a considerable amount given his fame. Jeremy also dipped his toe in business, on a couple of occasions. In 2009, he opened a swingers nightclub in Portland, Oregon. It closed down in 2015 due to mounting legal woes, before being taken over and rebranded by another management team. The actor also lent his likeness to Ron de Jeremy Rum, a popular Panama-based rum. 

Despite being worth a few million, it's not clear that Jeremy has cashed in on his wealth. We know he lives in an apartment in Franklin Towers, Hollywood. As of August 2021, the median list price for an apartment there is $600,000. It's unclear when Jeremy purchased the apartment, or how much he paid for it. Beyond that, there's no record of any other assets. So it's safe to say, whatever his net worth, he's likely sitting on most of it.

Jeremy indicted

According to court records, the actor was indicted on12 counts of forcible rape, seven counts of forcible oral copulation, six counts of sexual battery by restraint, four counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object, two counts of sexual penetration of an unconscious or asleep person and one count each of lewd act upon a child under the age of 14 or 15, sodomy by use of force and assault with intent to commit rape.

He pleaded not guilty to all charges, echoing a 2020 tweet where he said, "I am innocent of all charges. I can’t wait to prove my innocence in court! Thank you to everyone for all the support." Jeremy's attorney told CNN, "His position is the same (as) when the criminal complaint was filed. He is innocent of all charges." He still remains at the Twin Towers correctional facility in Los Angeles and is yet to make bail. He will make his next appearance in court on October 12, for a pretrial conference. If convicted, Jeremy faces up to life in state prison.
