I need some help here
Hello I am 20 years old college student and I go to school away from home. I have lived a normal middle class almost all of my life but my dad struck it rich in about 2001. Since he has become very wealthy my relationship has gone to ****. He retired and he has become so selfish and I canít stand it. He owns a collection of Rolex watches and several European sports cars and wont get any one else anything even my mom! He has cut ties with all people who canít make him more money in stock market. EVEN HIS BEST FRIENDS! I asked him if he could buy me a car for college (I all I want is 4 wheels and something to get me from point A to point B. He said I was a liability, meaning if I was in a car wreck they could sue him and ruin his fortune since I am still a dependant of him.
Then I asked if I could buy a car with MY OWN money. He said no again, since I am still dependent of him. He wont even let me buy a car! I am a good kid and never get in trouble and he knows that, but he is too scared to take a chance on me since I could mess up and he possibly get sued and loose his fortune. He basically told me that money is more important then me.
I want to scream and go crazy but I cant since he would just stop pay for my college. I know a car is minor but I am behind money on his scale.
I am thinking I should claim independence from parents and then he could just give me money for college and cash for the car. The money isnít the issue he even said. just worried about me messing up his wealth
