Frances minced no words when she spoke about how her life was a lavish one. Her father died in 1994 and left her a huge fortune. She gets$ 100000 allowance per month and is worth $ 15.83 million. She was just one year old when her father died. As she grew up, she used to spend a lot of money per month and her average monthly expenditure used to be $ 100k. Frances said:
“My relationship with money is different because I didn’t earn it,”
The music artist continued:
“So it’s almost like this big, giant loan that I’ll never get rid of, and it’s almost like I have this foreign relationship to it or like a (hint of) guilt because it feels like money from somebody that I’ve never met, let alone earned myself.”
She has this huge guilt feeling of spending the money which she never earned.
Has Frances controlled her expenses now?
Frances revealed on the podcast that she looked into her expenditure and tried keeping a check on it after 2016-2017. In 2016, Frances left alcohol and drugs and turned sober. In 217, she divorced her husband of 3 years., Isaiah Silva. She said:
“It took me stepping away from that and getting sober in order to realise that no matter how much money you think you have, it’s not permanent,”
“I’d like to say that within the last two years I have taken real accountability for every single thing, talking to the people in charge of my money and having in-depth meetings as well as recognising that you don’t have to live lavishly in order to live well.”
