Children of celebrities are often born with a golden spoon in their mouth. However, this does not always mean that they can sit back for the rest of their lives. Because it is not a given that they will eventually inherit their parents’ fortune. But they often benefit from their parents’ fame. This is also how children of celebrities end up in the ‘Hollywood world’.
The 63-year-old country singer Marie Osmond believes that people who “get money” often do not have the ambition to make their own fortune. That’s why the singer told US Weekly this week that she has no intention of leaving her inheritance to her seven children. Subway therefore makes a list of celebrities who share her opinion.
Be careful with inheritance
It takes some stamina to get through, say, $300 million over 25 years. But the recently deceased Lisa Marie Presley managed to eat the entire inheritance from her father Elvis at the time. In fact, at the end of her life she had a debt of millions. The money has been spent on houses, parties, jewelry, travel, booze, drugs and the resulting treatment in largely unaffordable rehab. An example of why money (inheritance) does not always bring happiness.
She has now left her daughters Elvis’ former estate, Graceland. The singer’s three daughters inherit the property and museum in Memphis, Tennessee. But it can also be different. These five famous men are doing something very different with their wealth.
Actor Daniel Craig recently said that he does not want to leave his fortune, estimated at around $160 million, to his children: “I don’t support the idea of an inheritance. My philosophy is that you use it up or give it away before you die.” The actor has two daughters with actress Rachel Weisz and another 29-year-old daughter from a previous marriage. She is now active as a model.
Star chef Gordon Ramsey has five children. He told that his inheritance will definitely not go to them. He doesn’t want to spoil them. They also only fly in economy class, while he and his wife are in business class, he said in 2017 The telegraph. Looks like his kids will fend for themselves. For example, his eldest daughter has studied at university, his eldest son has joined the Royal Marines and his 21-year-old daughter Matilda has become a TV personality just like her father.
The TV and film producer made a whopping fortune, around $4.5 billion, when he stayed Star wars franchise and its production company The Walt Disney Company sold. George has four children, but a large portion of his legacy will be donated to educational philanthropic projects. He will raise the bar for future generations of students of all ages.
When Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s first daughter was born, he wrote on Facebook that he and his wife will donate 99 percent of his daughter’s inheritance to charity. Of course, that doesn’t mean his children, he now has two with a third on the way, won’t run out of money. Zuckerberg is one of the richest people on the planet.
Action hero Jackie Chan is still alive, but makes no secret of a plan to disinherit his only son Jaycee when he dies. The actor would like to donate half of his assets, estimated at $130 million in 2011, to charity. However, the other half would not go to Jaycee. Chan’s 40-year-old son has a history of legal problems with drug use, while Jackie was appointed as an anti-narcotics ambassador to China in 2009. Meanwhile, the bond between father and son has already improved.
