What’s Gary Glitter up to these days, and how much money does he have?


A month after his release, GARY Glitter was taken back to jail for violating the terms of his license.

The career of the infamous musician and the crimes he committed are examined here.


Who is Gary Glitter?

Singer-turned-convicted child molester Paul Francis Gadd, better known as Garry Glitter.

Gary Glitter, who was born on May 8, 1944, in Banbury, Oxfordshire, became famous as a member of the nascent glam rock scene.

I’m the Leader of the Gang (I Am), I Love You, Love Me, and Always Yours were just a few of his hits; by 1975, he had sold 18 million records worldwide.

In 1997, Glitter was discovered to have 4,000 images of child sexual abuse, marking the beginning of the public’s awareness of his paedophilia.

In 1999, he went to prison for the first time after he downloaded photos of child abuse.

After being arrested in Vietnam in 2006 for molesting two girls aged 11 and 12, Glitter spent two years in prison before being set free in 2008.

Later in 2015, the singer was sentenced to 16 years in prison in the United Kingdom for sexually abusing three young girls between 1975 and 1980.

Where is Gary Glitter now?

According to The Sun, Glitter was being held in a “cushy prison” for sex offenders.


He has been incarcerated for the past eight years at HMP The Verne, a Category C prison that recently underwent a £3.3 million renovation to house only sexual offenders.

Inmates supposedly have access to flatscreen TVs (reportedly 20 inches), tea making facilities, and 24-hour freedom to roam their wing.

It’s like a holiday camp in there,” one insider told The Sun. When people find out that some of these people have raped children, they are understandably appalled by the way they choose to live.

Due to the fact that there are only other sex offenders present, everyone feels secure.

Because of their senior status and reputation for good behavior, “they are given special privileges.”

The Verne is on the Isle of Portland in Dorset.

In 2013, it began operating as a facility for the removal of undocumented immigrants.

The disgraced star was set free on February 3, 2023.

How long did Gary Glitter spend in prison?

Glitter was given a 16-year prison term but has already served 8 years.

From 2015 until his release in February 2023, he was incarcerated.

As a condition of his release, he will be closely watched and required to follow certain protocols.

In January of 2023, the Sun reported that he would be freed.

It was reported in March of 2023 that Glitter had been recalled for violating the terms of his license.

What is Gary Glitter’s net worth?

Since Glitter no longer has control over his musical compositions, he is no longer paid royalties from their sales.

There is speculation that his music has been banned from all UK radio stations, but it is still occasionally played on American airwaves.

It has been speculated that he owns a London flat valued at around £2 million, but that the flat is actually in the hands of a former business partner operating under a company.

His fortune is estimated to be somewhere around £6.5 million.
