Nigella Lawson doesn't believe in inheritances
The Daily Mail says that while Lawson and her marketing maven hubby Charles Saatchi have an estimated wealth of about $220 million (about $30 mil of which is hers alone), her kids won’t see a thin farthing.
The 48-year-old has two children — daughter Cosima, 13, and son Bruno, 11, — from her marriage to journalist John Diamond, while 64-year-old Saatchi as a 12-year-old daughter, Phoebe, from his first marriage.
But Lawson told My Weekly magazine that she wants her kids to learn one thing from her: “To know that I am working and that you have to work in order to earn money. I am determined that my children should have no financial security. It ruins people not having to earn money. I argue with my husband Charles, because he believes that you should be able to leave money to your children. I think we’ll have to agree to disagree.”
Better start putting some effort into those handmade Mothering Sunday cards, kids.
