Hooper, 44, said her life has been awful. Catherine also thought it was more challenging than it was in the first early moments of her partner’s death.
Furthermore, Andrew declared that he would never forgive his Father for his misdeeds in an interview with People in 2013.
The disgraced financier’s youngest son attributed his Cancer relapse to the stress brought on by dad’s arrest and sentence.
Andrew Madoff’s Fiance Is Now A Writer
As of the 2017’s report, Catherine was writing books under the penname Carolina Carter. She moved out of the luxurious apartment she shared with her late fiance.
She started living in a 500-square-foot studio apartment in Manhattan with her daughter. The mother-daughter duo reportedly sleep in bunk beds.
Although Andrew asked his estate to pay her $50K per month for life, she told the publication that she has not received a penny and may never at all.
According to Hooper, the estate is still involved in the numerous cases related to Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scam.
“I downsized my life completely and sold nearly everything I own, including the engagement ring Andrew gave me,” Hooper said to People.
Initially, the writer tried to look for a job outside of writing. However, her connection with the Ponzi Scheme mastermind’s son blocked her way. Every interviewer would politely reject her.
