Tinie Tempah doesn't understand money so treats his parents to a summer holiday in return for managing his finances
Tinie Tempah's parents manage his finances in return for a summer holiday.
The rapper - who shot to fame earlier this year with his debut single 'Pass Out' - admitted he had an "agreement" with his parents where he had promised to take them on vacation every year for helping him organise his cash.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "Sometimes money can overtake your decisions if you think about it too much. Some people only get up for the money and I don't want to do that. I didn't have much when I was younger but I was brought up by my parents who work really hard for everything. They understand money on every level and I'm so fortunate I have parents I can confide in and help manage my money.
"I've got an agreement with my parents now where every year I have to take them on a holiday. They brought up four respectful, well-educated kids so it's time for them to let their hair down."
The 21-year-old music star also revealed he hopes to invest in a new girlfriend in the near future, and has a crush on Jade Ewen from the Sugababes.
He added: "I saw Jade Ewen at a party with red lips and it really did the job for me."
