Mick Jagger Hints He May Leave His Fortune to Charity, Not His Children
Mick Jagger is estimated to be worth $500 million. While the Rolling Stones frontman has eight children, they may not see a cent.
Jagger recently spoke with The Wall Street Journal and said of his fortune, ” … The children don’t need $500 million to live well. Come on.” Instead, he alluded to his money being dispersed to various charities, saying, “You maybe do some good in the world.”
Jagger isn’t the first musician to say their children won’t receive a major inheritance one day. In 2014, Sting told The Daily Mail that his children already know they won’t be getting a ton of money once he’s gone.
“They have to work,” said Sting. “All my kids know that and they rarely ask me for anything, which I really respect and appreciate.”
In other Jagger news: The Rolling Stones are weeks away from the release of their new album Hackney Diamonds. The album comes out on October 20. A full track list for the album is below, and it’s available for pre-order in a variety of formats at RollingStones.com.
So far, two tracks have been previewed: “Angry” and “Sweet Sounds of Heaven.” The latter track features Stevie Wonder and Lady Gaga. As previously reported, other guests on Hackney Diamonds include Paul McCartney, original Stones bassist Bill Wyman and Elton John. McCartney plays on “Bite My Head Off,” while Wyman and John play bass and piano, respectively, on “Live by the Sword.”
