The `Office` creator took to his blog to verify reports he is one of the world`s most highly-paid comedians, but insisted he gives a lot of his fortune to "good causes", jokingly claiming he was referring to the UK tax service.
He wrote: "They are of course spot on. I know it sounds a lot, but remember, I donate a lot of this to good causes. The Inland Revenue mainly. The Inland Revenue is the British version of the IRS."
The 49-year-old star - who is behind TV comedy series including `Extras` and `An Idiot Abroad` in the UK, as well as star of movies `The Invention Of Lying` and `Cemetery Junction` - also joked now the word is out he`ll have to share more of his riches.
He said: "I will have to get my family a million lottery scratch cards each for Christmas."
Referring to the currently politically-unstable African nation, he added: "I have decided to use the rest of the money to take over Libya."
Ricky also has a successful career as a stand-up comedian, and recently hosted the Golden Globes awards in Los Angeles for a second time.
His controversial jokes - hinting that famous Scientologists are gay, introducing Bruce Willis as "Ashton Kutcher`s dad" and teasing other celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp and Charlie Sheen- caused a stir among organisers and Hollywood`s A-list stars.
