Anderson Cooper Won't Inherit His Mom Gloria Vanderbilt's Fortune - Find Out Why

Anderson Cooper previously revealed that he would not be inheriting his mother’s large fortune.

If you don’t know, Anderson‘s mom, Gloria Vanderbilt, passed away this week at the age of 95. She was the great-great-great granddaughter of shipping tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt.

“I think my mom and dad both wanted to get across to me that … I obviously grew up with great privilege and was very lucky and was able to afford college and not have student loans and they would pay for college, but beyond that, it would be up to me to make a living,” Anderson told People years ago about not inheriting her money after her death.

On his parents’ insistence he make his own way, Anderson added, “I was always very appreciative of that because I never – I always looked at people who inherited money and they never seemed to really accomplish much on their own and it seemed to sort of change the person they were.

Anderson‘s dad, Wyatt Cooper, passed away at the age of 50 during an open heart surgery.

    I find it hard to believe that he does not have a trust or foundation setup with Vanderbilt money somewhere.

  • DEADPOOL

    No buying it for a second. He’s prob a trust fund baby already anyhow and a tax dodger who doesnt want to even pay the taxes he does much less more.

    I think he expresses a bias that those who didn’t accomplish much didn’t accomplish it due to inherited money. Maybe they never planned to achieve anything, regardless of how much monthly allowance this world sends them.

    Well I don’t by this for 2 seconds. It also doesn’t say where the money is going haha

    So let me get this straight, SHE was good enough to inherit money but her kids aren’t? What a selfish b—-

  • cutitout

    She has other children from previous relationship, what about them?

  • leilani dupree

    I agree how selfish,she wouldnt been able to start the buisnesses she had without the startup money from her trust!

  • Cricket

    Give all that slave money to the reparations Democrats are pushing for.

  • comeatmebro

    dude makes a ton of money from his show on CNN and I’m sure appearances…the real question is who the fuck cares?

  • Detroit1953

    Yea right, makes a good story. I am sure she padded his bank account for years while she was alive. Although, Anderson does collect a good check from fake news station CNN.

    I think she blew through all her money and saying she’s not leaving her kids money is a polite way to avoid revealing she was broke at the time of her death.

  • Brite Star

    Maybe she didn’t except his life choices?

  • Baker

    Kids inheriting money usually means TROUBLE for the kids. They cannot handle it especially a trust of this size. Better to leave it all to charities of YOUR choice and a very small amount to kids.

  • leilani dupree

    Anderson is a responsible adult who knows how to handle money,he could put that money to good use!
