Let’s face it, Gordon Ramsay is bringing in some big bucks with all of his reality competition shows, owning several restaurants and making public appearances. But it turns out, his children will not be inheriting any of that money in the future.
Gordon Ramsay Says His Kids Will Not Be Benefiting From His Money
Gordon is a father to five children, Megan, Holly, Jack, Matilda and baby Oscar. And while he may seem very intimidating on shows like Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef and Kitchen Nightmares, he’s actually a big softie when it comes to being a father. It came as quite the surprise when it was revealed that Gordon does not plan on sharing any of his millions of dollars with his children, nor will they inherit the money. He wants them to put in their own hard work and get their own jobs, even if they want to follow in his footsteps and work in the culinary field. “You want to work in this business? You f*** off to another chef, learn something different and come back with something new to improve the business,” he said in an interview. “I don’t want the staff thinking: ‘F*** it’s Ramsay’s kid, we can’t tell them off.”
According to Mashed, Gordon has an estimated net worth of $220 million. He also reportedly makes $223,000 for each episode of MasterChef and Hell’s Kitchen that he films. He gets a 10 percent cut for some of the brands and products he endorses on social media. When it comes to his money, he said its “definitely not going to them [my kids], and that’s not in a mean way; it’s to not spoil them,” during an interview with Telegraph. “The only thing I’ve agreed with Tana is they get a 25 percent deposit on a flat, but not the whole flat.” Gordon and his wife Tana have been married for 24 years and have continued to teach their kids these values. He basically does not want them to feel spoiled because they already know they are in a privileged position.
Gordon’s Children Do Not Fly First Class
When your dad is one of the most famous chefs in the entire world, that definitely means a lot of traveling. “They haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that [first class seats],” Gordon told Delish.com. “At that age, at that size, you’re telling me they need to sit in first class? No, they do not.” He went on to say that his children sit in economy seats on an airplane and must pay for first-class with their own money. While the children do get allowances, Gordon ensures that it is not an astronomical amount of money, but merely enough to pay for small things like outings with friends.
How do you feel about Gordon not planning on leaving any money to his children in the future? It’s definitely a controversial topic and we want you all to weigh in down in the comments section.
