Ten Teen Celebrities Who Are Way Richer Than You

By on October 20, 2015 in ArticlesEntertainment

Most of us have had to ask our parents for money and prayed they would say "yes," before we entered the working world and could generate our own income. But there are those born with a silver spoon in their mouths. For those teenagers, there is no asking their parents for money – it's not necessary because they can get what they want with their own resources. It can be easy to hate these kids because they are filthy rich and they can be pretty entitled. They may even be good people at heart, but it's hard to root for someone who is already worth millions before they are even old enough to apply for college.
