What is the Net Worth of Brian Littrell?
Brian Littrell is an American singer and songwriter who has a net worth of $45 million. Littrell is best known for being a member of the all-male vocal group, the Backstreet Boys. The Backstreet Boys became incredibly popular in the ’90s and early 2000s, and the group’s success has contributed greatly to Littrell’s net worth today. That being said, Bryan has enjoyed a successful career as a solo artist outside of his work with the Backstreet Boys. In 2006, he released his solo album titled “Welcome Home”.
Brian is also known today as an influential contemporary Christian music artist. As a born-again Christian at the age of eight, Littrell remains devoted and outspoken to his faith. He also said that he attributes his success in life to God and his faith. His son Bailey later became a country singer. In 2015, he was inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame along with other members of the Backstreet Boys, including his cousin Kevin Richardson.
Brian Thomas Littrell was born on 20 February 1975 in Lexington, Kentucky. His father worked for IBM, while his mother was a secretary in a dentist’s office. Brian was raised in a Baptist family and excelled in sports during his early years. He also became involved in music, engaging in youth chorus and vocals. At the age of 16, she was persuaded by a teacher to sing at social events to earn a little extra pocket money. During his high school years, Littrell also appeared in several school plays. In addition, he took a job working at Long John Silver.
As a teenager, Brian envisioned himself becoming a basketball player one day. However, he has rarely seen playing time due to his height. He then changed goals, planning to become music minister instead. Around this time, Brian’s cousin Kevin showed up at his high school, kicked him out of class, and convinced him to audition for a new vocal group. Littrell flew to Orlando the next day and earned his high school diploma through correspondence.
The new vocal group that Bryan auditioned for was, of course, the Backstreet Boys. They earned a spot in the group, and they became an instant success with several early hits such as “We’ve Got It Goin’ On” and “Quiet Playing Games with My Heart”. As time passed, the Backstreet Boys continued to release massively successful albums and hits such as “Backstreet’s Back” and “I Want It That Way”. They ended up with over 100 million records sold worldwide, including two diamond-certified albums. Bryan eventually led the group in a lawsuit against Lou Perlman, who concealed the group’s actual earnings.
Releasing the Christian pop album “Welcome Home” in 2005, Brian explored a solo career. The album sold over 100,000 copies and charted well on the Christian charts. However, Littrell remains a member of the Backstreet Boys.
Brian dated his long-term girlfriend Samantha Stonebreaker until 1997. After this point, he began dating Leighane Wallace, whom he met while the pair were working on a music video together (Wallace was an extra). After dating for two years, Brian proposed in 1999 and the couple were married in 2000. Two years later, they welcomed their first child, Bailey, into the world. This son has since gone on to star in Broadway musicals and have released his own music.
Brian Littrell was born with congenital heart disease, and he is very vulnerable to infection. At just 6 weeks old, doctors discovered that he had a heart murmur. At the age of five, he was hospitalized due to a bacterial infection. These early health issues put Littrell back in school, and he was forced to repeat first grade. By 1997, doctors were beginning to worry about his heart, which had grown significantly. He had open-heart surgery in 1998, which proved successful. He later founded a non-profit organization to help children with heart disease.
Brian’s health conditions have affected his career on more than one occasion. After contracting swine flu in 2009, the Backstreet Boys’ entire “This Is Us” tour had to be cancelled. In 2011, he suffered acutely from dysphonia and dystonia, both vocal tension issues affecting his ability to sing. To this day, she relies on a therapist to address these concerns.
In 2013 it was reported that Brian had sold a bungalow in West Hollywood. The rather unremarkable home was almost certainly picked up as an investment property, as it doesn’t quite fit the description of a celebrity home. He initially bought it in 2002 for $725,000, and he managed to sell it for $1.14 million.
In 2019, it was reported that a community in North Fulton County, Georgia was very unhappy with Littrell because of its decision to rent a mansion in the area. Nearby residents say they bought the property in the area for “peace and peace”, but these hopes were dashed when Brian showed up and essentially began using the rental as an event venue. Loud, unpleasant parties became common, and a helicopter landing pad was even built for the shuttle in the VIP. Helicopters added to the noise and scared away the farm animals. In an official statement, the Littrells explained that they had lived in the area for more than two decades, and were “committed to preserving its rich history.”
