Bernie Madoff said embroiled in alleged love triangle with ex-employees

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.

Reuters News reports that Madoff pleaded guilty in March 2009 to running a fraud of up to $65bn at his investment firm and is serving a 150-year prison sentence.

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.
