Debbie Gibson Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Deborah Ann Gibson was born on the 31st August 1970 in Brooklyn, New York USA, and is an actress and a singer, also well known for her theater career, mainly in starring roles on Broadway and in touring musicals. In hindsight she began her career at just five years of age, so has now been in the entertainment industry for four decades.

Have you ever wondered how rich Debbie Gibson is? According to sources, it is estimated that Debbie Gibson`s overall net worth is $5 million, most of which she has accumulated through her years of international popularity as a singer in the late 80’s, however, she has also increased her net worth thanks to her later success on Broadway, where she debuted by playing Eponine in “Les Misrables” in 1992.

Debbie was born the third daughter of four to Diane and Joseph Gibson, who raised her as a Catholic in the suburb of Merrick, Long Island. She began performing in a local community theater with her other sisters when she was only five – which was also when she wrote her first song – and at only eight she sang in the Metropolitan Opera House in New York. (The song turned out to be a success for Debbie, so she continued with her writing talent and eventually hit no.1 on the “Billboard Hot 100” with the single “Foolish Beat” in 1988.) Soon after that, she began her musical education by taking piano and ukulele lessons which added a new sense to her songwriting and composing talent. As a twelve-year-old she won $1,000 in a songwriting contest, for a song called “I Come From America”. It was then that her parents hired Doug Breitbart as her manager who taught her to arrange and compose her music. She was already contributing to her net worth.

This resulted in Debbie having over 100 of her own songs recorded by the time she was 15. Since her first album, which was released in 1987, Debbie has gone on to release nine albums in total, the last one being “Ms. Vocalist” in 2010. Of course, all have added to her net worth.

Among the biggest rewards Debbie has received, stands the New York Music Award for the Album of the year in 1989 and the Debut Artist the same year. She was also nominated for the Favorite Female Music Performer by the People’s Choice Awards and Best Pop Female Vocalist by American Music Awards a year later.

Debbie also has a respectable acting career, as she has appeared in more than 20 films and TV productions, including “That 80`s Show” (2002), “Rita Rocks” (2009), “Rock Of Ages” (2012), “Mega Shark Vs. Mecha Shartk” (2014), and her latest venture in the entertainment industry “Acting Dead” (2014). All these appearances have added to her net worth.

Throughout the years of popularity, Gibson has acquired more than just fans: unfortunately, she has been the target of stalkers. One of them, Robert John Bardo, who was convicted for murdering the actress Rebecca Schaeffer in 1989, had a whole wall in his house covered in photos of Debbie and her family. On the other hand, in May 1998 one of her so-called fans, Michael Faulkner, was arrested after having sent numerous threatening letters, e-mails and faxes to Gibson.

When it comes to the singer’s love life, she was engaged to Jonathan Kanterman, and since 2008 she has been in a relationship with Rutledge Taylor, a doctor specializing in preventative medicine. She has no children.
