The famous celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsay revealed lately that his children won’t inherit his multi-million-pound fortune and they don’t get much now either. They are definitely not allowed to sit in first class with him, or even eat at his own restaurants.
The hot-tempered chef, believes that his children should work very hard for their money. Ramsay, who now owns numerous Michelin-star restaurants, doesn’t want his children to be spoiled.
He has four children, Matilda 15, Jack and Holly, 17, and Megan, 18, and they will receive only a 25 per cent deposit for a flat from his fortune. Tough?
The youngest from his children, Matilda has been following her father’s footsteps and now has a cooking show called “Matilda And The Ramsay Bunch”. Jack wants to be in the marines and Holly is interested in fashion. Megan is a philosophy student who babysits to earn cash.
“They have served the Chelsea pensioners there for Christmas lunch, but not eaten there,” Ramsay said.
“They don’t sit with us in first class. They haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that… I worked my fucking arse off to sit that close to the pilot and you appreciate it more when you’ve grafted for it.”
He was asked how he could have such responsible time for a father who is rarely in the house, he responded: “I’ve never been at home seven nights a week cooking for the kids. What I’ve instilled in the kids, from day one, is a work ethic. So, the time we spend together is limited, but quality.”
“I need to protect them and respect the restaurant and team in my restaurant. I made them as normal as possible… they’ve all got jobs, they’ve all taken care of animals, they’ve all got housework. There’s a rota. They get pocket money, but they have to earn that pocket money.”
Even though he is big mates with David Beckham, he says that his children are not allowed to date any of Beck’s kids.
“Three girls and a boy, and three boys and a girl – you’d be amazed at the synergy,” he told TV magazine. “We’ve promised that no one dates anybody, and so far…”
He added: “If Holly said: ‘Yeah Brooklyn and I’… it would be: ‘No Holly.'”
Wow, tough much? What do you think?
