Sir Paul McCartney
The Beatles legend earned fame and fortune during his heyday before embarking on a successful solo career. He has an outrageous amount of money to his name but that doesn’t mean he’s a big spender. McCartney is notoriously tight with money. He once feuded with his children because he wanted to save money by sending them to government schools.
McCartney and his fellow band members came from humble origins in the U.K. He never took money for granted because his family didn’t have a lot when he was a youngster. Now his children have access to things that he never dreamed of. But he wants them to live simple lives and to respect money (via Variety).
