Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Cardi B are known for being however the top when it comes to raising their little ones. When it comes to these little celebrity children, almost no expenses are spared to make sure they live as lavishly as they possibly can.

A few wealthy celebs have, however, proven that not all celebrity children grow up with a silver spoon in their mouths.

These rich celebrities refuse to spoil their children

Most parents go out of their way to make sure that their children are well looked after and yearn for nothing.

While it must be nice to be able to shower your children with not only love but riches too, it doesn’t always turn out well when a child has been spoiled rotten and is unable to fend for themselves as adults or worse, can’t weather any storms because they aren’t accustomed to rainy days.

This must be why some celebrities have made the harsh yet understandable decision to withhold their riches from their children.

‘Not sponsored by mom and dad’

Celebrities such as Mila Kunis, Jackie Chan, Bill and Melinda Gates, Gordon Ramsay, and Daniel Craig are all among the wealthy folks who have decided that it is in their children’s best interest to build their own legacies and learn to navigate life’s highs and lows with mom and dad money.

Jacaranda FM reports that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have acknowledged that their little ones live a very privileged life – something they are completely unaware of. For this reason, the couple has decided not to set up a trust fund but instead donate to charity.

The publication also reports that Chinese action movie star Jackie Chan has also vowed not to fund his son’s life. According to Chan, if his son is able to, he should make his own money because he certainly won’t be benefitting from his dad’s.

Bill and Melinda Gates also made the decision to give their children the opportunity to build their own success. The recently divorced couple are widely known for their large donations to charity and will only leave a small percentage of their wealth (which is still quite large for the average Joe) for each of their three kids.

One celebrity that comes as no surprise on this list is Gordon Ramsay who once stated that the most he’d be willing to pay for his children’s rental deposit are 25% of whatever is required!
