Last week I told you about reports that the wealthy chef's children wouldn't be inheriting her money for the sake of them understanding the value of a euro. She issued this statement denying the rumors on her website on Friday.
You might have noticed in the press that I have (apparently) cut my children out of my will, cruel mother that I am. Of course I have no intention of leaving my children destitute and starving — rather, this is a story that came from a comment I made about my belief that you have to work in order to learn the value of money.
I have always said of my children that once they have finished university or training, whatever education they choose, they have to support themselves through work, as I did, but I have never discussed the details of my will with anyone. The story that has been circulating is not a true reflection of my intentions and, although I'd normally ignore it, I want to set the record, not least to spare my children continuing embarrassment.
That sounds more like a mom looking out for her children's well-being, compared to her earlier statement, which many of you thought seemed a bit harsh.
