How relieving it is to be born with a silver spoon. You grow up not having to worry about finances with almost everything you need and desire available to you even before you ask. The teenage age is that age where most of us depend solely on our parents for money, hoping they can support us till we get to the “mature” age where we can start making our own money, but for these child stars, the story is a different one. Thanks to their celebrity parents who have already paved the way for them, and Hollywood, which welcomes their incredible talents with arms wide open, these kids immediately begin making millions even before they complete high-school. We’ve seen the likes of Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus become rich this way but while these ones can’t make the list considering they are now way grown into adulthood, the entertainment industry has welcomed fresh faces, from The Smiths to The Kardashian sisters.
