ROLF Harris’s firm is £4MILLION in profit after he raked in cash from paintings and shrewd investments.

The paedo entertainer, 88, is sitting on a fortune less than two years after he was freed from jail for a string of historic sex attacks on young girls.

Harris’s wheeling and dealing in stocks and shares has seen his company RHE Investments go £3,861,911 in the black, according to recent financial reports.

The perv OAP – believed to be worth £15million – founded RHE in 2012 but resigned in 2015.

However, he kept his family in cushy roles with wife Alwen working as company secretary and his niece in admin.

Harris was also a savvy personal investor and set up a range of companies to deal with his vast wealth.

The Aussie has made millions from his paintings as well as his TV and cheesy music work.

At the height of his fame he was a household name – presenting art shows on the BBC and family favourites like Animal Hospital.

Such was his profile, that in 2005, he was even commissioned to create an official portrait of the Queen.

PERV PRESENTER EXPOSED

But Harris was exposed as a sex fiend in June 2014 when he was convicted of 12 counts of indecent assault against four young girls.

One of his victims was aged as young as seven while another was a childhood friend of his daughter.

Judge Mr Justice Sweeney said the perv presenter had taken advantage of his celebrity status and shown “no remorse”.

Harris was jailed for five years and nine months, but served just three.

After being jailed he closed down several of his firms and disposed of the cash to fellow directors – all family members.

But his musical back catalogue – including corny tracks where he played the didgeridoo – is still available on iTunes with albums being sold for up £6.99.

One fan wrote: “This album has a lot of great songs. Great tributes to Rolf Harris.”

But another user pleaded: “Take this known paedophile off iTunes.”

SCHOOL VISIT

Yesterday the disgraced TV host enraged parents after he walked on to the grounds of a primary school and waved at children, according to reports.

Harris was told to leave by the head teacher of Oldfield Primary School in Maidenhead, Berks, but he was not arrested as “no offence was committed”, cops said.

He was photographed outside the school at about noon on Tuesday wearing a red jacket similar to the one he wore in his infamous mugshot.

Harris later claimed he walked onto the grounds to talk to a sculptor who was working there.

The OAP perv was spotted shuffling out of his home and into a car this morning as officials have called for a probe into the police report.

The passer-by who took the snaps outside the school said: “I could not believe what I was seeing. A convicted paedophile should not be in the grounds of a primary school.

“He was waving at the children through the window. I think they were on lunch or maybe in class.

“They were waving back at him and clearly had no idea who he was.”
