Rock legend Sting says his kids shouldn't expect to live like rock stars when he dies. He says his six kids won't get a lot of his money, and he expects them to work hard and earn their own way.

"I told them there won't be much money left because we are spending it!" The 62-year-old told The Daily Mail. "We have a lot of commitments. What comes in, we spend, and there isn't much left."

He also still has more than 100 people on his payroll.

The former frontman of The Police said he doesn't want his kids to be trust fund babies, and leave them "trust funds that are albatrosses round their necks.

So although his net worth has been estimated to be around $300 million in the past, his kids will have to work hard to earn their own net worth.

Luckily, Sting said his kids are already hard workers, so he thinks they will be able to make their own success. He also said he appreciates that the kids rarely ask him for anything.

"Obviously, if they were in trouble I would help them, but I've never really had to do that," he said. "They have the work ethic that makes them want to succeed on their own merit."
