The son of jailed conman-to-the-stars Bernie Madoff has lost his battle with cancer at the age of 48.

Andrew Madoff, who was Bernie's last surviving son, passed away on Wednesday (03Aug14) at a hospital in New York. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2003 and suffered a relapse in 2013, according to the Washington Post.

Andrew's brother Mark hanged himself in December, 2010, on the second anniversary of his dad's arrest.

Bernie Madoff was jailed for 150 years in June, 2009, after pleading guilty to siphoning billions of dollars from his wealthy clients, including Kevin Bacon, John Malkovich and Zsa Zsa Gabor.
