Sources of income

Steven Seagal was active in mainstream movies from 1987 to 2002 and most of his earnings are from the projects during this period. The success of "Hard to Kill", "Marked for Death", and "Out for Justice" established him as an action hero. However, Steven Seagal had very few commercial successes and had to take on TV programs that were not much popular. He continued working in direct-to-video (DTV) movies as a producer and writer. Steven Seagal also produced and starred in television action series.

$5 million for the film "Under Siege" (1992)
$6.5 million each for the films "Exit Wounds" (2001) and "Ticker" (2001)
$20 million for the film "The Glimmer Man" (1996)
$15 million for the film "On Deadly Ground" (1994)
$10 million for the film "Marked For Death" (1990)

A tarnished reputation and downfall

In the long run, what really harmed Seagal's career was how he acted offstage. People didn't like him, and this caused his downfall. Even now, Seagal is remembered as the worst guest in "SNL" history, not just because his skits on the show weren't great but also because of how he behaved behind the scenes. It's said that Steven had a big ego and didn't want to consider new ideas, per The Things. His wealth declined due to unsuccessful business ventures and a scarcity of acting roles.

Real estate ventures 

In 2001, Seagal acquired a sprawling 12-acre plot in Scottsdale, Arizona, at an undisclosed cost. He went on to meticulously construct a remarkable 9,000-square-foot stone residence, which not only features a gated entrance but also boasts bulletproof glass throughout. The property was put up for sale in December 2012 with an initial asking price of $4.25 million, eventually finding a buyer who purchased it for $3.55 million in July 2021.


In addition to being an American citizen, Seagal also possesses citizenship in Serbia and Russia. His property holdings include residences in Louisiana, Colorado, and California. Seagal is a father to a total of seven children, each from distinct relationships. He shares two children with his first wife, Miyako Fujitani. Following their divorce, which occurred after Seagal relocated to the United States from Japan, he briefly entered matrimony with actress Adrienne La Russa in 1984. However, the marriage was nullified the same year. In the early months of 1987, actress Kelly LeBrock gave birth to his daughter, and the pair wed later that year. Their family grew to include two more children before their divorce in 1994. Subsequently, he wed Mongolian dancer Erdenetuya "Elle" Batsukh, with whom he has a son.
