Unlike his celebrity peers, Sting isn't saving his estimated $300 million fortune for his six children!
"I told them there won't be much money left because we are spending it! We have a lot of commitments," the former Police frontman recently revealed of the conversation he had with his kids.
"What comes in we spend, and there isn't much left. I certainly don't want to leave them trust funds that are albatrosses round their necks."
The 62-year-old rocker added that his three sons and three daughters, "have to work. All my kids know that and they rarely ask me for anything, which I really respect and appreciate."
So where is the money going? Well not only do Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, support a number of charities, but the "Roxanne" singer also employs over 100 people, which isn't cheap.
"People make assumptions, that [my children] were born with a silver spoon in their mouth, but they have not been given a lot," clarified the star, who acknowledges the ever-present pressure their names carry.
"With my children there is great wealth, success — a great shadow over them — so it's no picnic at all being my child," he explained. "I discuss that with them; it's tough for them."
As for the next phase of his career, the musician has no plans of slowing down...yet.
"I have a story still to tell and part of that is I am facing the end of my life," the songwriter told The Daily Mail. "I have lived more of my life than is to come: that is an interesting place for an artist—more interesting than writing about your first girlfriend."
He continued, "I am certainly not ready for death...My eyesight is not as good as it used to be, nor my hearing. I am still extremely fit but have to work hard. But we decay."
