If you think that being born into a wealthy celeb family means you won’t have to think about money ever again, well, you’re not entirely wrong. Still, there are celebs who have a different idea about upbringing. Some of them believe that you shouldn’t spoil your kids by giving them everything they want. It might be somewhat acceptable early in life, but then they should still work for themselves and earn their own money. Here are 8 wealthy celebs who will leave their kids without fortune.
George Lucas may be a legendary name in the movie industry and he has definitely earned his billions with hard work and unique vision, but his children might not feel all that happy about their dad’s views. George Lucas has four of them and he strongly believes they should work to support themselves. He’s not planning to leave them his fortune, which is around $6,400,000,000.
The multi-millionaire chef has made a name for himself with his legendary Hell’s Kitchen TV show that has thousands of people glued to the screens. Gordon Ramsay’s fortune is around $190,000,000 and he doesn’t want to leave a dime of it to his five kids! When they’re flying on a plane together, he’s having a first-class seat, but his family enjoys none of that because he believes they’ve never worked hard enough to have such luxury. Hence, they don’t get to enjoy it!
Jackie Chan is one of the most famous 90s martial arts stars. We just love all the crazy stunts he performed in numerous movies! Still, Jackie is planning to give all of his $350,000,000 fortune to charity, leaving nothing for his daughter and son. He’s sure that his son can support himself without father’s money and he hasn’t really been a part of his daughter’s life, so she won’t get anything either.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are keeping a low profile when it comes to their kids and family. They might be working in showbiz, but they aren’t dragging their kids into the spotlight. Ashton Kutcher believes that too much money can spoil a person and that his kids don’t even realize what special lives they’re living. He’s not planning to leave his fortune to them as he thinks they should earn their own livelihood.
Elton John is one of the biggest names in the music industry and has certainly made a huge fortune during the golden days of his career. He has two sons, but they will not be spoilt by their dad’s $450,000,000 fortune. Still, Elton John is not too strict as he wants his kids to be financially independent and will do everything to help them achieve that. But they will have to learn how to earn their own money!
With an estimate net worth of $400,000,000 Sting is also one of those celebs who prefer not to spoil their kids with money. He’s proud that his six children are financially independent and urges them never to rely on his income. Well, mostly because he’s busy spending it himself on various ventures. Still, in case any of them needs any financial help, he won’t hesitate a second.
Simon Cowell might seem strict and criticizing on the shows he’s doing, but he’s not all that bad in real life. Well, he’s one of those celebs who believe their wealth should go to charity rather than to their children, and we just have to accept that fact. But he also believes that the best thing a celebrity parent (or any parent for that matter) can give to a child is his time, attention, love, and opportunities to do well in life. That’s what matters most!
Mark Zuckerberg is a stunning personality and some people consider him a genius. The co-founder of Facebook is certainly one of the wealthiest men on the planet with an estimate fortune of $72 billion. Will he leave any of it to his children? Certainly not. 99% of Mark Zuckerberg’s wealth will go to charity, while his kids will have to work to support themselves.
