Bernard Madoff was in a 'love triangle' involving one of five former employees who are about to go on trial for helping him run his multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, prosecutors said.
While Madoff said he acted alone, prosecutors have since charged 13 individuals in connection with the fraud. Five of them - two women and three men - are set to go on trial in federal court in New York on October 7.
In a filing with the court on Thursday, prosecutors said the married Madoff was involved with one of the five but did not give a name. All but one of the defendants were at one time involved in relationships with each other, and one had a relationship with Madoff, the prosecutors said. 'For example, one of the defendants was in a love triangle with Bernard Madoff himself,' prosecutors said.
