Brown's estate settled

Considering how long the bickering over a rich, fertile dead man's estate can last, settlement has come swiftly for James Brown's descendants.

Half of his money is going to go to charity; a quarter to his wife; the rest will be spread amongst his kids. Under James Brown original will, his wife was only supposed to receive black coffee and a hard roll, which he considered enough to keep anyone running.
