HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO KEEP A SIXTEEN YEAR OLD?: A quarter of a million bucks a month, apparently, according to Mary Ann Den Bok. She is the mother of Corey Robinson, the sixteen year old son of Ray Charles, and is seeking the three million dollar a year income to keep Charles' son in the "lifestyle he enjoyed" before his Dad died. Oddly, the petition she filed with the court suggested that he was living in a house filled with toxic mould, which doesn't really sound like a multi-million lifestyle to us. The minimum she's "prepared" to accept is USD60,000 a month. It's up to the courts now.
