The loss of a true legend and iconic author.

Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor who also became a Nobel Laureate, has died at the age of 87, according to media reports.

Wiesel is best known for his groundbreaking work Night, a book describes the horrors he experienced as a Jewish survivor of the Nazi death camps of the Holocaust during World War II.

After he was liberated from those camps at the end of the war as a young man, he went around the world for the rest of his life — most notable in the United States, France, and Israel — to speak on behalf of victims of hate and persecution.

According to Wiesel's son, the author apparently died at his home in Manhattan. No cause was given.

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

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??
