Meet Stephanie Madoff aka Stephanie Morgan she is Mark Madoff’s wife and Bernie Madoff’s daughter in-law. She is a mother, business woman and sadly a widow since her husband was fiound dead at his apartment where her son was also at. Keep reading to know more about her from our story, take a look at the photos, video and share all of your comments with us.
Stephanie Madoff’s husband was the 46 year old man who worked in his father’s business along with his brother Andrew. They were the ones who turned their father in to the police a few years ago, he was sentenced to 150 years in jail on December 11th, 2008. Today on that two year anniversary in prison Stephanie’s husband hanged himself at their apartment at 158 Mercer Street in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood where their son Nicholas, who is two years old, was also there at the time of the terrible suicide and where singer Bon Jovi also owns an apartment.
Stephanie Madoff, famous and successful in the fashion industry, is the second wife of Mr. Madoff, before she tied the knot to the man who used to be married to a woman named Susan, mother of his ages 18 and 16 year old kids; Steph was known by her maiden name Stephanie Mikesell until they got married in 2003, from their relationship they became the proud parents of Aubrey who is now 4 years old and Nicholas who turned 2 on February 13th. You can see a picture of them here.
Stephanie lived a luxurious, glamorous life next to her husband and his family, but all that changed after her father in-law’s shameful arrests, their lives became a living nightmare that filled their home with life threats, pursuit from media and hate from many people who were financially affected by the biggest financial crime of the century.
After all that now with her marriage practically irrevocably broken and looking for the safety of her little children, Stephanie thought that she change their last names Madoff to a much less noticeable one,they would perhaps have a semi normal life, so she went to the judge last November and requested their last names to change from Madoff to Morgan, that same thing was tried by her brother in-law’s wife, Debbie Madoff. They are now divorced.
Stephanie was the one who got concerned about the situation at her NY home while she was with Aubrey in Florida it seemed that a series of suspicious, bogus emails from her husband was all it took for her to ask her step-father to check on her son and husband at the SoHo apartment, he was the one who found the terrible scene.
Mrs. Madoff had previously been concerned about her husband’s behavior (depression) and last October she reported him as missing when he ran away on his Vespa, he came back the following day and promised to seek professional help.
We are so sad about this news. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her, her children, other family members and friends throughout this terrible time. Would you like to send Stephanie a message? Check out the photos and video below.
