A local man has been removed from a family will this week after he made comments about climate change that his father did not agree with.
British-American businessman James Murdoch, who is also kind of Australian but not really, said that he’s disappointed with some things his Dad’s media empire has been saying about climate change.
His father, Rupert, is said to be “equally-as-disappointed” with his boy, who’s stepped out of line by having a differing opinion.
News out of London today indicates that James has been removed from the will because of this.
Speaking to The Advocate a short time ago, James explained that like Prince Harry and Megan, he’s being forced to generate his own income now outside of the family.
“Yes, it will be tough but I’m already independently quite wealthy and it’s not like I’m going to be swinging off a jackhammer or anything of that nature,” he said.
“No, things will be just fine. I’m just disappointed it had to end like that.”
The Advocate reached out to Rupert Murdoch for comment but have yet to receive a reply.
More to come.
