Being an heir or heiress in America is a pretty big deal. It usually will automatically give you a type of celebrity status, even if all your known for is the fact that one day you’ll take over the families wealth. We’ve seen it before with Paris Hilton, the heiress to the Hilton Hotel empire that’s generated billions of dollars revenue worldwide, and we’ll see it again and again. The best part is usually the the heirs or heiresses may actually have zero interest in eventually running or taking over the business one day, however, simply due to the way works, they’ll be in line for a hefty fortune when the time is right. It’s not a bad lifestyle at all, and it’s certainly a case of getting rich from simply being rich. In America, it’s still extremely popular to pass on wealth to your kids and for these people listed in our article, it certainly pays well to be the children. Here’s a list of some of America’s richest heirs and heiresses. One thing to pay particular attention is the final 2, as both are set to inherit an incredible $28 billion wealth.
