$$$ The Observerreports that Steve Cohen only spent $2.7 million on his 20-something year-old son's apartment, which the paper cannot get over. Since there probably isn't anyone else who's going to say it, the duty lies with us to put it out there that this might've been because the child in question is not the fruit of the big guy's loins, but that of another dude with whom SC's second wife Alexandra chilled prior to meeting Steve. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course, and surely the boy is loved just as much as the rest of 'em, but those with the DNA of Papa Bear have don't wipe their feet on welcome mats worth less than $3 mill.
