Mr. Bharara is rumored to be independently wealthy, the result of an early investment in his younger brother’s company, Quidsi, the parent of Diapers.com and Soap.com, which was sold to Amazon.com for $540 million in 2010, as DealBook’s Peter Lattman noted at the DealBook conference on Tuesday. Is that indeed true? Is he independently wealthy. Mr. Bharara demurred. “Not compared to the people in this room,” he said, to a room full of business people. While he did not discuss his own wealth directly, Mr. Bharara said his brother, Vinnie, tends to pay for dinner when they go out, ever since he “came into a little bit of cash.” “I got it,” Vinnie Bharara said at a dinner recently, according to Preet.
