Parents gave $100k to brother; he told me but they didn’t: OK?
I am a middle-aged adult. My brother (who has made tens of millions of dollars and semi-retired at age 40) had no income from a business that he owns. So my parents (who have plenty of cash) gave him $100,000.
They didn’t tell me. He did, to his credit. He also told me that he’d give me half of they don’t ask for it back (although I expect them to want it back, as a loan).
I’m fine, financially; I am a senior lawyer in a law firm and do fine. I don’t need the money, but if I asked for cash, my parents never would give me anything.
Would you be bothered by parents giving a sibling $100,000 and not telling you, when you know that they wouldn’t help you if you were in need?
I guess I should be happy that he’s honest.
My brother is very wealthy and retired a while ago. This year, with the pandemic, he didn’t make anything from a business that he owns. So he is wealthy but didn’t have his usual cash flow this year; thus he “needed” cash.

I mean, honestly, things between your parents and your brother are absolutely none of your business; just like if the situation were reversed, it'd be absolutely none of his business.
