As it sounds as though he has failed at everything he has faintly attempted, one wonders what it is about him that he insists others are jealous of ? Presumably not his huge academic or commercial successes ? Its fair enough to hope not to suffer too much in life, but to expect not to have to work, is far more unrealistic. He apparently takes no personal responsibility for his contributions to his failures. And when he exaggerates and indeed lies about his financial situation, he seems to be seeking pity and donations he knows he doesn't really deserve (otherwise the truth would be sufficient ).
This recurring theme of jalousy is curious, when he seems to have managed nothing worthy of anyone's jealousy. But your parents seem to have bought into this, and to sharte the same delusions about jealousy.
Would it be possible for your parents to be approached by you, your gran and uncle, to make it clear many people are having the same experience of this guy, and that they are overlooking something important and essential to recognize if anyone is to truly help him ?
I guess this is unlikely, as you seem to be describing a family habit and patterns which you, fortunately, have escaped from. And they would rather continue to believe this family myth than face reality and find a more productive and comfortable way of life.
If they see no problem, they will not allow you or anyone else to intervene, however much they may need and benefit from intervention.
