A day after three wealth asset managers -- Gregg Skidmore, Brandon Lacoff and Tim Davidson -- claimed a $254 million Powerball jackpot in Connecticut, a friend of one of the men says the bankers are covering for the true winner, who wants to stay anonymous.

Tom Gladstone, a pal of one of the Belpointe Asset Management firm bankers, told ABC News the bankers were looking "to protect their client" from the scrutiny lotto winners are subjected to.

Gladstone, a Greenwich resident, said the real winner likely will not ante most of the money to charity, as the bankers had claimed they would at a news conference announcing their win.

The ticket was purchased at a BP Station on Shippan Point in Stamford, CT. and the winning series of numbers -- 12-14-34-39-46 -- came from a quick pick.

According to Connecticut law, the name, city and town of the Powerball grand prize winner must be disclosed.
