Fab Morvan Net Worth $250,000
Fab was born into a family of a pharmacist and an architect, and is of French and Guadeloupian ancestry. When he was 18 years old, Fab transferred to Munich, Germany with his mother, where he got indent into the world of dancing and later modeling. These engagements provided the modest basis for Fab Morvan’s current net worth.
In 1988, Fab met Rob Pilatus in one of Munich’s numerous night clubs and they decided to form a band. Their dedication and talent were noticed by record producer Frank Farian, who offered them a recording contract and so founded Milli Vanilli pop duo, the unusual name inspired by a local advertising slogan which he saw during his business trip in Turkey. Their debut album “All or Noting” was released in November 1988 and soon after was ranked Gold, peaking at No. 4 on pop music charts in Germany. This initial success helped Fab Morvan to increase his net worth by a large margin.
The band’s second studio album – “Girl You Know It’s True” – hit the charts in 1989 featuring the eponymous hit single as well as three more popular tracks, “Baby Don’t Forget My Number”, “Girl I’m Gonna Miss You” and “Blame It on the Rain”. The album was a huge commercial success, peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the States. Not only that it was certified six-time platinum, but it also brought them the prestigious Grammy Award. However, despite a promising career, after Los Angeles Times’ journalist Chuck Philips discovered that not even a single song was actually sung by neither Fab nor Rob, the Grammy was rescinded from them four days later. The scandal was heavily covered by the mass media, and was the first time in the 57-year long history of Grammy that the reward was revoked from an artist. This precedent and scandal heavily impacted Fab Morvan’s popularity as well as his overall wealth.
After the scandal, the duo relocated to Los Angeles, California, and rebranded as “Rob & Fab”. They released an eponymous studio album in 1993 which, despite being warmly received by the critics, was a total commercial failure due to only 2,000 copies sold. Through the rest of the 1990s, Fab continued his work in the music industry as a session musician as well as a DJ. He performed in Wango Tango music festival in 1999, and in 2002 he performed at the Hard Rock Café Hotel in Orlando, Florida. In 2003, Fab Morvan launched his solo career and released his debut solo album “Love Revolution”. The album featured 12 songs which were entirely written, performed, produced and arranged entirely by Fab himself. All these ventures, doubtlessly, made a significant boost to the total size of Fab Morvan’s wealth.
Some other endeavors of Fab Morvan include appearances in one episode of “Das erbe der Guldenburgs” TV series in 1990, as well as a small, side role in the 1999 movie “When”. He also performed with Fabulous Addiction and served as DJ for Heineken Experience Center’s private parties in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It is certain that these engagements helped Fab Morvan to further increase his net worth.
When it comes to his personal life, Fab Morvan has managed to keep it private – there are no any relevant data about his intimate life.
