A massive list naming thousands of BERNARD MADOFF's victims -- from ordinary JOES who were wiped out to moguls and celebrities who lost millions -- was filed yesterday in federal bankruptcy court, and includes names from the entertainment industry.
THE NEW YORK POST reports the list -- which does not disclose the amount of money lost by each person or entity -- includes previously undisclosed victims, among them talk-show host LARRY KING, STEVEN SPIELBERG's charitable foundations, as well as the estate of singer/songwriter JOHN DENVER and late CBS television boss WILLIAM PALEY.
Also, late ATLANTIC RECORDS impresario AHMET ERTEGUN are identified as investors.
In all, 13,567 customers appear, with many individuals or entities holding multiple accounts in MADOFF's collapsed Ponzi fund.
