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.
