How much money does Thomas Anders have?
Thomas Anders was able to accumulate a considerable fortune in his musical career. This was largely thanks to his stellar career as part of the pop duo Modern Talking, which he formed alongside Dieter Bohlen , Germany’s pop titan. The former Modern Talking star’s real name is Bernd Weidung. In the meantime, he also became known because of the mud fight with his ex-wife Nora Balling. However, the singer and music producer has long since remarried and has a son named Alexander Mick. Thomas Anders, who meanwhile slips into many roles in show business, is still one of the most commercially successful singers in Germany. Because during his time at Modern Talking, 120 million records were sold. The estimated Thomas Anders’ fortune is 25 million euros.
Autobiography 100 percent different
The fact that Thomas Anders also appeared as an author and wrote about his life did not please his ex-wife Nora Balling at all. Since he had been critical of Nora, she wanted to sue him in court for more than one million euros as compensation. However, she did not succeed. The point of contention was the autobiography 100 percent different and the first lawsuit was filed back in 2011. In the end, the singer was given a kind of muzzle. From now on, he was no longer allowed to make certain statements about his ex when appearing on TV or reading books, or else he would have to pay a fine of 100,000 euros. That shouldn’t hurt Anders too much given his hefty net worth, though, especially considering the sale of the biography will further add to those fortunes.
Thomas Anders at Modern Talking
Without Nora and Dieter Bohlen, Anders would probably not be who he is today. Because in the 80s, as part of Modern Talking, Anders also made headlines with his Nora necklace. Incidentally, the singer had already discovered his interest in music in elementary school. Anders, who now lives in Koblenz, already had a few music projects under his belt when he started working with Dieter Bohlen in 1984.
With Modern Talking to million fortunes
Previously, Anders had sung mainly in German and now it should be about a Euro disco project in English. “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul” immediately made Modern Talking the successful duo in German music history in 1985 , as the title hit like a bomb and is still played a lot today. However, the Modern Talking era did not last long. The group broke up in 1987, after which Anders went to the USA to produce his own titles. However, Thomas Anders was able to build up a large fortune as part of Modern Talking, from which he still benefits today.
However, he was far from able to match the successes of Modern Talking. Only with a Spanish album, which was released in 1994, was the singer at least internationally successful. The album was released in South America and also in the USA. The biggest success, however, was number 1 on the charts in Argentina. The comeback of Modern Talking, which took place in 1998, had it all. Hardly any new songs were released. The band’s album consisted mostly of remixes of the pop duo’s biggest hits. The remix album was not only able to secure number 1 in the charts in 18 countries. It earned both the coveted gold and platinum status. So the successes of the 1980s were not a thing of the past. Modern Talking was able to pick up where the band left off. Numerous tours followed. In doing so, the successful duo generated high income and made their tills ring.
Successes as a singer
The new peace at Modern Talking didn’t last forever. On June 7, 2003, Dieter Bohlen and Thomas Anders finally parted ways, which meant the end of Modern Talking . Thomas Anders even sued against some defamatory statements by Dieter Bohlen and was right in court. Against this background, a second Modern Talking comeback is to be regarded as very far from reality. Therefore, Anders once again turned to his solo career.
Meanwhile, Anders was also able to secure an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records for appearing on a TV show as “the world’s fastest ice cream whipper”. Anders was also allowed to moderate the German Eurovision Song Contest Show. He narrowly lost the qualifying for the Eurovision Song Contest, in which the singer wanted to take part himself in 2006, and ended up in second place. In the meantime, Thomas Anders has released other solo projects, from a Christmas album to a dance-pop album. With them he was able to celebrate great success, especially in Russia. In 2010, the album “Strong” achieved the coveted platinum status there. This allowed Anders to further expand his large fortune. In May 2014, Dieter Bohlen and Anders are said to have even reconciled. Nevertheless, fans of the cult band Modern Talking shouldn’t get too excited. Because there shouldn’t be a comeback in the future, despite the smoothed waves.
