‘We Ain’t Rich; I’m Rich’: Shaq Offers Sobering Message to His Kids If They’re Hoping for Financial Handouts from Dad

Not that most folks would know firsthand, but it seems quite likely that at least a few children of super-wealthy parents may not believe they’ll need to lift a finger come adulthood with so much available cash hanging around.

Well, count Hall of Fame basketball icon Shaquille O’Neal’s children out of that number.

Because O’Neal indicated during a taping of the “Earn Your Leisure” podcast that his progeny aren’t about to get any handouts from Dad.

“My kids are older now, and they’re kinda upset with me,” Shaq offered. “They’re not really upset, but they don’t understand. ‘Cause I tell them all the time: We ain’t rich. I’m rich.”
