Uri Geller Doesn’t Know if he Has a Bank Account!
I don’t know whether I’ve got a bank account, says Uri Geller.
His ability to bend spoons has seen him create a multi-million pound fortune.
But Uri Geller does not spend a penny of his wealth as he never carries cash or credit cards and does not know if he has a bank account or a pension.
The 68-year-old said he made a decision to shun all material matters and focus on his spirituality after fame and fortune drove him to illness many years ago.
Geller said: ‘I do not own a wallet. I do not carry any money or cards. My wife pays for my purchases in shops and my brother-inlaw deals with everything else. I don’t buy anything myself, on principle.
‘In the early 1970s, I was totally obsessed with fame and fortune and I couldn’t handle my success. I became bulimic. Then John Lennon directed me to Japan to find spirituality, and that changed my life. I detached myself totally from material stuff.
‘From that time, I’ve found systems and methods to make sure I don’t handle or deal with money myself. I don’t even know if I have a bank account — I’d have to ask my brother-in-law.
‘Probably my brother-in-law and my wife keep a Visa or an American Express. I don’t really know. I don’t interfere in the monetary system they operate. I leave it absolutely to them.’
