What is Nicholas Brendon’s net worth?
Born April 12, 1971, Brendon, 50, has been acting since 1993.
Over the course of his career, Brendon has been able to amass an estimated $3 million net worth according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Prior to his start in the entertainment industry, Celebrity Net Worth reports that he wanted to become a professional baseball player but his career was cut short due to an arm industry.
After his athletic dreams died, he then went to school to study medicine before becoming a waiter and production assistant for the television show Dave’s World.

Was Nicholas Brendon arrested?
While Brendon has had a successful career so far, he is also a known alcoholic.
Brendon first sought treatment for his alcoholism in 2004 but then relapsed later on causing him to check himself into the SOBA Recovery Center in Malibu in 2010.
Five years later, Brendon’s legal struggles continued as he pleaded guilty to criminal mischief in New York after he allegedly grabbed his girlfriend by the throat, stole her car keys and smashed her cell phone.
In 2015, Brendon was arrested four times and entered rehab again in June for his alcoholism and in October for depression.
Most recently, Brendon was arrested on August 18, 2021, and charged with felony prescription fraud and failure to properly identify himself to police.
TMZ reported that after being pulled over for failing to signal and swerving around the road, Brendon handed police a California ID with the name Kelton Schultz when asked to identify himself.
When police searched his vehicle, they then found a perception bottle prescribed to “Nicholas Bender,” along with a prescription for amphetamine salts prescribed to “Kelton Schultz.”
TMZ also reported that police stated in an affidavit that Brendon admitted to taking medication that was not prescribed to him.
It is unknown if Brendon has entered a plea on either charge at this time but it was reported by the Desert Sun that he was currently serving a three-year probation sentence after pleading guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery at the time of his latest arrest.
