Gordon was born in Scotland and raised in England since he was 5 years old. He is the second child in the family and has three siblings. His father Gordon has tried numerous jobs; he worked as a welder, swimming pool manager and for some time ran his own shop. Due to his numerous business plans and countless failures the whole family traveled from city to city, without ever being able to settle down and start living a normal life. To make things worse, he was violent at home and suffered from alcohol addiction.
In his autobiographical book, entitled Humble Pie, Gordon described his childhood as being marked by neglect and abuse from his womanizer father. Although this autobiography added a solid sum to Gordon Brown net worth, that money did not compensate for his ruined childhood. As soon as Brown was able to afford renting his own apartment, he moved out of his family house.
As a boy, Gordon dreamed about the career in football and for some time it seemed like his dreams are about to come true. Still a teenager, Ramsay was signed to play with Rangers for a couple of trial matches. He experienced a serious injury while training with this team, but did not want to let this misfortune hamper his sports career and continued to play with a damaged cruciate ligament. Without a proper treatment the injury soon got worse, eventually forcing Gordon to say “goodbye” to football once and for all. Looking back to these days Ramsay admitted that his career in sports was probably doomed right from the start. Wasn’t it for this trauma, he might have never become the chef he is today and Gordon Brown net worth would have stayed average.
Ramsay started training as a chef at the age 19. In early 80s he worked as a commis chef in a hotel and later was promoted to run a 60-seat dining room and a kitchen at Wickham Arms hotel. Eventually he had to leave this place, because his roman with the owner’s wife made the tension at work unbearable. Brown’s career took off in 1993, when he returned to London from Bermuda, were he worked as a personal chef in a luxurious yacht. In 1998 he started a private business, Gordon Ramsay Restaurant. That’s when Gordon Brown net worth growth shifted to the high gear.
