Macklowe, 83, stopped paying the more than $200,000-a-month bill for Macklowe Properties' headquarters in the iconic 767 Fifth Ave. skyscraper when the coronavirus hit in March, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The debt has insiders reminiscing about the time Zuckerman's Boston Properties saved Macklowe from financial ruin in 2008.

"It's shocking," the source said. "They saved him and gave him a sweetheart deal and this is how he behaves?"

Zuckerman stepped down as Boston Properties chairman in 2016 but still retain a 5 percent stake in the company he co-founded.
