However, the 53-year-old has made it clear in another interview with Candis magazine, by maintaining the stance that inheritance is “distasteful”, adding that he plans to give his money away before he dies.

“Isn’t there an old adage that if you die a rich person, you’ve failed?” he said. “I think Andrew Carnegie gave away what in today’s money would be about 11 billion dollars, which shows how rich he was because I’ll bet he kept some of it too.”
