It seems Gordon Ramsay is keeping his fortune all to himself!
In a new interview, the Hell's Kitchen star revealed he doesn't share his wealth with his kids today — and he won't be leaving a lot his money behind to them either. According to the 50-year-old, his four kids will only receive a 25 percent flat deposit when he passes.
"It’s definitely not going to them, and that’s not in a mean way; it’s to not spoil them," Gordon revealed of his earnings to The Telegraph.
The celebrity chef and his wife, Tana Ramsay, married in 1996 and are parents to four children: Megan, 18, Jack, 17, Holly, 17, and Matilda, 15.
Today, the siblings certainly don't reap the benefits of their famous dad's success. "They don’t sit with us in first class. They haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that... I worked my f***ing arse off to sit that close to the pilot and you appreciate it more when you’ve grafted for it."
Gordon additionally revealed his kids don't even go to his restaurants either! "Last time we went to Royal Hospital Road [in NYC] was for Megan’s 16th birthday, and that was the first time we’ve ever eaten there with the kids," he confessed. So interesting!
The dad-of-four isn't the first star to speak out on this topic. In a previous interview, music icon Elton John revealed he wouldn't be leaving his two sons, Zachary and Elijah, his $280 million fortune either.
"Of course I want to leave my boys in a very sound financial state," the 70-year-old singer confessed. "But it’s terrible to give kids a silver spoon. It ruins their life."
"Listen, the boys live the most incredible lives, they’re not normal kids and I’m not pretending they are," the "Tiny Dancer" singer added. "But you have to have some semblance of normality, some respect for money, some respect for work."
