Former Oasis member Noel Gallagher recently revealed that his teenage sons searched his net worth after he refused to buy them a £25.99 game.
Noel Gallagher opens up on the matter
The former Oasis frontman, 55, who has an estimated net worth of around £57million, has three children Anais, 22, who he shares with former wife Meg Mathews, and sons Donovan, 15, and Sonny, 12, with wife Sara MacDonald. It was announced last week that Noel and Sara are divorcing after 22 years of marriage.
The singer-songwriter has spoken about family life in a new interview amid news of the shock split, revealing that he believes getting his daughter to work for him is ‘cheap’.
The former Oasis guitarist’s eldest child, 22-year-old Anais Gallagher – had a stint as her father’s photographer on the road and also just filmed a video to go with the announcement of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ upcoming album ‘Council Skies’.
When asked about neop babies, whose way into an industry is attributed to their parent’s success and connections, the ‘Wonderwall’ hitmaker insisted giving children ‘a leg up’ with their careers isn’t the ‘worst thing in the world’.
Speaking to Dave Berry on Absolute Radio on Tuesday, he said:
”It depends on which way you look at it. My daughter follows me around with a camera and films me and that, she did a film about the making of the album.’
”It’s not the worst thing in the world if you get your kids working for you, it’s cheap.”
”I’m paying half the rent here, get your finger out.”
When asked if he’d welcome ‘giving them a leg up’, Noel said he’d have no problem with that but his boys aren’t interested.
”Of course! My lads are scouring TikTok for nonsense to worry about, they’re not gonna be a bass player or anything.”
”They’re just like. “Can I get some more skins off Fortnite?” My youngest lad was asking for stuff once and I was like, ‘How much is it?’ ‘£25.99!’ – ‘That’s a lot of money’. And he said ‘Mate, you’re loaded – I’ve googled your net worth.’
