In 1986-1989 Bohlen was a producer and songwriter of disco queen C.C.Catch whom he discovered. After the first split-up of Modern Talking in 1987 he formed Blue System, which was basically a one-man group, since he was the lead singer, composer, arranger and producer.

Bohlen wrote music for many German movies, TV series, and shows.

Bohlen was married to Erika Bohlen (born Sauerland) from 1983 to 1994 and has 3 children from this marriage.

A pharmaceutical laboratory assistant, she was a background dancer for Blue System at that time. In 1996 he married model and singer Verona Feldbusch but divorced her after 30 days, propelling Verona to celebrity status (she went on to host television shows such as "Peep" and "Verona's Welt"). Bohlen eventually returned to Naddel, but the two split up again in 2000. Afterwards, Bohlen lived with 1979 born model Stefanie Ingrid Küster (nick name "Estefania") until 2006. They have one son - born mid 2005.
