Anthony Zuiker's Divorce
Anthony Zuiker and his former wife Jennifer were midst of a very heated divorce from 2011 until 2014. Jennifer revealed in court documents that Anthony earns $25,000 per episode of CSI that airs. Keep in mind that there are three different CSIs on TV that air 24 episodes per season, so Anthony earns $25,000 multiplied by three, multiplied by 24 = $1.8 million per year. And that doesn't count the vastly more lucrative syndication profits Zuicker is entitled to every year. It was also revealed in court documents that Zuiker has earned close to $75 million off CSI since 2008 alone and his annual income is $20-30 million.

In September 2014, the divorce was finalized. Jennifer Zuiker was awarded half of all profits Anthony earns from the three CSI shows he created while they were married. She will not receive any profits from shows he creates from this point on. Jennifer will not receive any spousal support, despite requesting $170,000 a month to support her standard of living, because a judge determined that the CSI profits should be more than enough. Anthony will however pay $10,000 a month in spousal support for their three children.
