Fabian was born as the eldest of three sons of Dominic and Josephine Forte, and apart from American is also of Italian ancestry. Fabian was discovered when he was only 14 years old – sitting in front of his house, watching an ambulance taking away his father suffering a heart attack, he was approached by Bob Marcucci, a co-owner of Chancellor Records who offered him a deal. With his father no longer able to work, Fabian was somehow coerced into the entertainment business. Featuring a pompadour, white bucks and fancy V-necks, Fabian quickly became a sensation, officially debuting with “Shivers” which became an instant hit in Chicago’s club circuit, providing the basis for Fabian Forte’s net worth.

This was followed by several other hit singles such as “I’m a Man”, “Turn Me Loose” as well as “Tiger” which peaked on No.3 on the US Chart, and was certified gold, selling over a million copies. Fabian’s debut studio album “Hold That Tiger” was also a huge commercial success, and brought him The Promising Male Vocalist of 1958 award. All these achievements added a significant sum of $250,000 annually to Fabian Forte’s net worth. However, at the age of 18, Fabian bought out his record contract from Chancellor Records for $65,000 and, basically, put an end to his music career, turning himself towards acting.

As a teen idol and rockstar, Fabian signed a long term contract with 20th Century Fox, and debuted as an actor in 1959, starring as the main character in the “Hound-Dog Man” comedy movie. This was followed by appearances in the 1960 highly popular movies “High Time” and “North to Alaska”, and Fabian then went on to appear in “A Lion Walks Among Us” episode of the “Bus Stop” TV series, playing a psychotic killer for which he receiveincredibly positive critics reviews. Through the 1960s, Fabian appeared in several hit movies such as “The Longest Day” (1962), “Dear Brigitte” and “Ten Little Indians” both in 1965, and also in popular sitcoms including “Wagon Train” and “The Eleventh Hour”. All these engagements gave a huge boost to Fabian’s wealth.

In 1968, Fabian starred in the racing car drama movie “The Wild Racers” which, although being poorly received by the critics, over the years became a cult film among the fans. Under constant pressure because of his fame, he began drinking in the late 1960s, but in 1973 Fabian returned to singing, and in order to boost his decreasing popularity, he posed naked for Playgirl. Things went downhill for Fabian, as he faced law problems with authorities, and even claimed bankruptcy in the mid-1970s. All these situations made a drastic impact on his net worth.

In 1977, he retired from music again, returning to acting and in 1980 he appeared in one episode of the “Fantasy Island” TV series. Although he never managed to reclaim his past fame, he continued to act and through the 1980s and 1990s appeared in TV series such as “Movie Macabre”, “Rags to Riches” and “Murphy Brown”. In 1999, Fabian Forte was featured in the Andy Wolk’ biographical drama “Mr. Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Alan Freed Story”, and since then he has appeared as himself in several TV movies and documentaries including “Biography”, “Charlie Gracie Fabulous” and “Airplay: The Rise and Fall of Rock Radio”. Doubtlessly, all these achievements have helped Fabian Forte to add a significant sum to the total of his net worth.

When it comes to his personal life, Fabian Forte has married three times – between 1966 and 1975 he was married to Kathleen Regan with whom he has two children. In 1990 Fabian divorced from Kate Netter whom he married in 1980. Since 1998 he has been married to Andrea Patrick, and with his wife, Fabian resides on 20-acre lot in his home town, and is actively involved with the American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association.
