Growing up poor, the bassist and frontman for KISS earned a healthy appreciation for money, and he’s going to make sure that his kids get the same thing. He’s said that he won’t leave them out in the cold, but they’ll never be rich off of his money. He says the best thing for them will be to get out of bed every day and work.
He doesn’t want their gratitude for making them rich – he wants them to look at something they did and understand that they had worked hard to achieve it. So far, both of the kids seem to be heading in that direction.
While celeb chef Ramsay seems pretty surly on TV, he's actually quite the charmer – just check out his Youtube channel. He's said that he refuses to pamper his kids. In fact, when the family travels, he and his wife Tana fly first-class while their five kids have to make do in economy class.
Ramsay has had great success as a chef, restaurateur, and media personality, but he's being stingy with his money when it comes to the kids. The only thing he's agreed to do so far is a twenty-five percent deposit on a flat when they become of age. It seems as if Tana wants the kids to get more, but Ramsay isn't having it.
He's constantly seen as one of the richest men in the world, even if his net worth is actually a hair under a hundred billion. His smart financial advice has helped millions, and his sharp investing has done much for his personal pocketbook. The Oracle of Omaha, as he's called, has also promised to give away his entire fortune. Little, if any, will go to his three children.
He's always encouraged his children to challenge themselves, and it seems to have worked. Susan Alice Buffet is a philanthropist in her own right. Howard is a businessman, politician, and author, and his youngest son Peter is a musician and composer. The money that they will receive when he passes away will mostly go to their own organizations.
Thanks to Facebook, Zuckerberg and his family won't want for anything. They're currently enjoying a net worth of more than a hundred billion dollars, but Mark's children – the oldest was born in 2015 – won't be able to enjoy all of it. Zuckerberg and his wife signed the Giving Pledge in 2015, saying that the Facebook co-founder would reroute ninety-nine percent of his child's inheritance toward philanthropic efforts.
Zuck has stated that they have a moral responsibility to all children of the next generation, and the money will focus on learning initiatives, curing disease, and building strong communities. The two parents have their own group, the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative, which will be controlling the funds.
As one of the most well-known actors in the world, Chan brings in plenty of money even if he isn't acting in as many movies anymore. Over his decades-long career, he's become one of the biggest earners in the national and international movie industry. He's said that he's promised to leave at least half of his fortune to charity when he passes, and none of it will be going to his son, Jaycee.
Chan has gone on record saying he wants his son to be capable of earning his own money, not just wasting Chan's. The two have a somewhat troubled relationship, presumably caused by Jaycee's dependency issues.
