Shaquille O'Neal's kids can't understand why he won't share his $400M fortune

49-year-old former professional basketball player Shaquille O’Neal has revealed that he does not want to share his $400 million fortune with his children, but they cannot seem to understand why. The star has expressed how he wishes to see his kids work hard to be successful, wanting to instead invest in his offspring rather than just handing them the money. O’Neal is a father of six, and is rumored to have a net worth of around $400 million and does not seem to be willing to giving his kids money long term.

Speaking on ‘Earn Your Leisure’ podcast, the former basketball player said ‘My kids are older now. They kinda upset with me – not really upset – but they don’t understand. Because i tell them all the time. ‘We ain’t rich. I’m rich.’ He went on to say how he wants his kids to have a bachelor’s or master’s degrees, starting their own businesses, becoming pharmacists, lawyers or doctors. Anything that gets them working and earning the money. He also strikingly denounced his ‘celebrity-ness’, saying that many celebrities are going crazy with status and money.
