Andrew, who reportedly fell to the floor, sobbing, when his father broke the news in his kitchen on Dec. 10, has called the Ponzi scheme "a father-son betrayal of biblical proportions" and claims that he and his brother were blindsided by the news. After his father broke the news--and after he presumably got up off the kitchen floor--a near-catatonic Andrew went right to bed, without even taking off his coat or crotchfish, and stayed there for four hours, completely still. Since his father went to jail, his mood has brightened some, according to his friend Alexandra Lebenthal.
