This Is Why I Gave Daughter All Our Extra Euros Before We Left

One can never be too careful

A 30-year-old Princeton graduate, who allegedly shot dead his multimillionaire hedge-funder father, was upset that his weekly allowance had been cut back, according to published reports.
Tommy Gilbert Jr, a former pupil of Manhattan’s most prestigious private schools, was being questioned by police on Monday after 70-year-old Thomas Gilbert Sr, founder of $200 million hedge fund Wainscott Capital, was found with a gunshot wound to the head.
A source told the New York Daily News that Mr Gilbert Sr had cut back Tommy’s weekly allowance to $300 and threatened to stop paying his rent.


30 years old.

Seems like this young fellow has some…issues.

    State of New York will pay his rent now, I suppose. Princeton graduate, eh?

    Three bones a week PLUS rent. And one can reasonably suppose that we’re not talking about a $650/mo flophouse with a shared bathroom for the whole floor.

    nightfly, I read that the monthly rent was $2,400.

    “Issues” doesn’t begin to describe this person, Mr. B. Not even close.
