ruth madoff blames bernie for sons suicide

What a terrible situation!

Ruth Madoff is reportedly blaming her husband, Bernie, for their son Mark's suicide.

Here's what Madoff biographer Jerry Oppenheimer had to say about it on The Today Show:

"She claims that Bernie Madoff has blood on his hands. She calls him an SOB … that he's totally ruined his family, and the death of their son was the final straw."

Oppenheimer has also said that Ruth feels that Mark "would not have died if it weren't for what [Bernie] had done."

And more from Oppenheimer:

"Her wrath is aimed at her husband."

We definitely feel for Ruth! Such an awful tragedy!

Thoughts???

Bernie Madoff's Son Commits Suicide

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

Mark Madoff, the son of convicted Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff, who is currently serving a 150-year prison sentence, was found dead in his Manhattan apartment early Saturday morning of an apparent suicide.

Madoff was found hanging from a ceiling pipe with a dog leash around his neck. His father-in-law discovered his body.

His two-year-old child was also allegedly asleep in a nearby bedroom at the time, unharmed.

It is unknown whether or not he left a suicide note, however prior to his death, Madoff emailed his wife in Florida with "words to the effect that someone should check on his son."

His death occurred on the second anniversary of his father's arrest.

Wow. So sad.

Madoff's Undies, Shoes & Jewelry Bring In $2 Million

Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff's old possessions turned out to be a huge success at the U.S. Marshal auction on Saturday.

The big ticket item of the day was wife Ruth Madoff's 10.5 carat diamond ring that sold for $550K.

What a steal!

Another item that fetched a pretty penny were a pair of velveteen slippers with Bernie's initials embroidered on them in gold thread. They went for $6000.

The strangest purchase by far had to be 11 pairs of unused designer boxers and 200 pairs of socks, which were purchased by the same man for $1,700.

Kinda creepy, even if they are new.

At the end of the day the auction brought in over $2 million, which will benefit Madoff's victims.

Pay John Malkovich What He's Owed Or Else!!

Filed under: Legal MattersBusiness Blitz

John Malkovich is PISSED and wants to be paid what he's owed!

The actor was a victim of greed-miser Bernie Madoff's nasty little Ponzi scheme, which he used while he stole millions of $$$ from various people including Kevin Bacon and Elie Wiesel.

Malkovich has already appealed to trustees and has been granted the $670,000 he originally invested with Madoff, but wants the significantly larger cut he was fooled into thinking he would receive - $2.2 million!

Although the trustees and courts agreed that investors were entitled to the difference of what they invested and withdrew, Malkovich's lawyers claim:

"A customer generally expects to receive what he believes is in his account at the time the stockbroker ceases business."

Hmm. We think if he didn't lose anything he probably has nothing to complain about and should just be grateful he got his cash back at all!

What do U think?? Is Malkovich entitled to that much money??
