It was also reported that their bill gates kids Jennifer Katharine Gates, Rory John Gates and Phoebe Adele Gates have to do their own household chores and are given a very modest amount for their pocket money. In the year 2010 Gates said that he’s going to give away, most of his billion dollars worth of fortune rather than handing it down to his children.
The amount he is supposedly granting for each one of his children is around $10 million. As compared to the proportion other famous heirs are getting, this is a trivial sum.
