Zoe Ball and Fatboy Slim have financially “cut” their son.
The former couple, who have a combined value of around £ 35 million, are eager for Woody Cook to be ‘self-sufficient’, and the University of Bristol student is happy to earn his own money, despite having struggled to buy the essentials. .
She told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: “My parents make it clear that I was born with a privilege that they have had to work hard to achieve.
“My parents have cut me off completely. They’re like, ‘Do you want to be a child of a trust fund or do you want to work?’ I want to work, so now I’m self-sufficient I don’t have a student loan.
“I’m doing everything myself. I couldn’t pay for bread the other day, but I’m working on it. “
The ‘Celebrity Gogglebox’ star admitted that people have preconceptions about him due to his parents’ fame, but he’s happy to have been proven wrong.
He said: “A goalkeeper told me, ‘I knew you would come and I didn’t want to like you. I’ve seen the Brooklyn Beckhams, I’ve seen the shit, but I met you and you’re up against the trend. ‘
“My parents taught me to be myself and not depend on someone else.”
And while he may not have enough money to buy bread, 20-year-old Woody can still find the money to “get out [his] walnut ”at home.
He joked: “I can be a suitable creature. My poor mother is the one who gets up at four thirty every morning to go to work on the radio and I’m going to lose my mind. My friends and I will be stumbling around the house still awake and Mom says, ‘Hi, I’m going to work.
Zoe and Fatboy Slim, whose real name is Norman Cook, are also parents to their 11-year-old daughter Nelly.
The former couple divorced in 2006 after seven years of marriage.
