Harvey confessed that even though he is worth over $160 million, he still has nightmares about being homeless and living on $50 a week.

Harvey, 62, revealed that he had a plan in case his talk show ever got canceled.

“I’m running from homelessness. I can’t ever be in that position again. If my show gets canceled, I’ve got three more. I don’t have any free time, but I have 12 jobs,” said Harvey.

STEVE HARVEY BUMPED FOR KELLY CLARKSON

The fabled comedian’s talk show was canceled by NBC after seven years, and will be replaced in the same time slot by "The Kelly Clarkson Show," a variety talk show hosted by singer Kelly Clarkson.
