Leif Garrett net worth: Leif Garrett is an American singer, actor and television personality who has a net worth of $1 thousand. Leif Garrett was born Leif Per Nervik on November 8, 1961, in Hollywood, California. Garrett rose to fame in the late 1970s as a teen star, but later in life he attracted more attention with his drug abuse and legal troubles than his career. Entering the world of acting at the age of five, he made his commercial breakthrough with the role of Jimmy Henderson in Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969). Thanks to his pleasant voice and good acting skills, he soon became teen girls' favorite and landed roles on such hit series as Family (ABC, 1976-1980) and TV movies like Peter Lundy and the Medicine Hat Stallion (NBC, 1978) before starting a career as a pop singer. Next, he signed a recording deal with Atlantic Records, under which he released his chart-hitting remake of the Beach Boys' Surfin' USA. His name could be also seen on the US charts with updates of Dion's Runaround Sue and The Wanderer, as well as Paul Anka's Put Your Head On My Shoulder. However, Garrett soon sunk into drug addiction and obscurity making his career entirely collapse. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, he has made several attempts to revive his fame, but it was all in vain as he has already reduced his once golden status to yet another child actor-turned-cautionary tale.
