Sting Ditches Own Children From Will As He Plans To Spend His Vast Fortune On….
STING, as we know, is an incredibly smug man. Not surprising really, given that he’s got shedloads of money, a talented and “occasional aviation-fuel” using wife and everyone thinks he’s really good at the sex. It’d be nigh-on impossible not to think highly of yourself if you take all that into consideration.
However, his kids might not think much of him as he’s showing them the meaning of money and achievement by cutting them out of his will.
Sting’s sat on £180m and he doesn’t want his children to have it.
He’s said that he wants to encourage his children “to succeed on their own merit” which they say they’re happy to do. He said: “I told them there won’t be much money left because we are spending it. We have a lot of commitments. 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. They have to work. All my kids know that and they rarely ask me for anything, which I really respect and appreciate.”
In fairness, Sting’s children are old enough to be looking after themselves.
There’s Joseph, 37, and Kate, 32, Brigitte Michael, 30, Jake, 28, Eliot Pauline, 23, and Giacomo Luke, 18. If they’re not earning their own coin, they’re mental. Or stoners.
“People make assumptions that they were born with a silver spoon in their mouth, but they have not been given a lot.”
“Obviously, if they were in trouble I would help them, but I’ve never really had to do that. They have the work ethic that makes them want to succeed on their own merit,” the Police man added.
They’re agreeing now, probably thinking dad’s doing a double bluff and that, by playing along, they’ll get a load of money when he dies.
Thing is, Sting’s really smug. He probably thinks he’s the best dad in the world, so he’s probably going through with this idea – they better get down the job centre, sharpish.
