Richest Man On Earth, Bill Gates, Says He WON'T Leave A Dime Of His $81 BILLION Fortune For His Children


The Microsoft creator, who has an estimated net worth of $81.7 billion, appeared on today’s edition of This Morning where he made the revelation.

He told hosts Holly Willoughby and Ben Shephard: “Well, our kids receive a great education and some money but they will go out and have their own careers.”

The 60-year-old technology magnate turned philanthropist said that having vast amounts of money “distorts anything” that his children might try to do. This money is dedicated to helping the poorest,” he added, before saying that his children understood why the money was being put into the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and had even accompanied him on some of the projects.

However, Bill did tell the hosts: “We are going to leave a little bit.”

There was much praise for Bill on social media from This Morning viewers, who lauded the entrepreneur for his down-to-Earth attitude despite being one of the richest people in the world.
