Popular British rockstar Sting said his children would receive a small part of his money and have to work for their livelihood.

Sting was born in Wallend to working-class parents.

He worked regular jobs like teaching before he went into music.

Sting is worth $400 million, according to CelebrityNetworth.

He acted in movies like “Quadrophenia” and the original “Dune.”

The former Police frontman said he didn’t want his children to have trust funds because it would be like “albatrosses round their necks.”

Sting is not the only celebrity not giving his children a large inheritance; Celebrity Chef Nigella Lawson is of the same opinion.

Sting has won 17 Grammys, several Brit awards, the Song of the Year award and a CBE from the Queen for his services to music.

One of his most popular songs, “Every Breath You Take,” got a BMI for the most played song in the organisation's history.
