Why does Lewis Capaldi still live at home?

Speaking to the Daily Star about why he still lives with his parents, he joked "All I spend my money on is food because I can't help stuffing my face. I am splurging on food and it shows, it's showing on my gut, my gut is expanding every day."

It's not the first time Capaldi has joked about his humble living situation.

It was previously reported that Capaldi was worth almost £8 million, but he denied the claims, joking on Instagram: "It says according to Forbes and Wikipedia, Lewis Capaldi's estimated net worth is $10 million.

"I have less than £200 in my bank right now so who the fuck has my $10 million."

The Hold Me While You Wait singer continued: "Are you telling (me) I'm kicking about in the same clothes I've worn for the last six months and there's $10 million sitting about somewhere, where is it?

"I still live with my mum and dad, I've been in the same bedroom since I was 12-years-old and there's apparently $10 million sitting there?'If the tax man sees that, I'm fucked'"
