Elton John’s kids work for pocket money

London: British singing legend Elton John says his children work around the house to earn their pocket money.

The 68-year-old and his partner David Furnish – who are parents to five-year-old Zachary and three-year-old Elijah – may lead an extravagant lifestyle, but John says he makes his children carry out chores in exchange for cash and hopes they will learn the value of money, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“I came from a council house and a working class background and I earned my money and I earned it with very hard work and I loved it,” John said in an interview on radio.

“And I want them to work for their money. They both have pocket money, but they have to work in the house for it and they have to work in the garden,” he added.
