“He still calls me to make sure that I save here, invest there. For example, I wanted to rent a penthouse. He advised me, ‘You are wasting money by spending on that (rent). Buy it and use it when you are around. Little advice here and there.
“It took a while for him to my (sic) music. But now he has fully accepted it.”
