Les Wexner accuses Jeffrey Epstein of misappropriating ‘vast sums of money’

8/8/2019

Veteran retailer Les Wexner has accused Jeffrey Epstein, the financier under indictment for alleged child sex trafficking, of misappropriating more than $46 million from him and his family.


Wexner, CEO of Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works parent company L Brands, detailed the accusation — and his relationship with Epstein — in a letter he sent Wednesday to the Wexner Foundation. Epstein had served as Wexner’s former financial advisor.


"I am embarrassed that, like so many others, I was deceived by Mr. Epstein,” he wrote in the letter, reported Business Insider. “I know now that my trust in him was grossly misplaced, and I deeply regret having ever crossed his path. As the story has unfolded further, and the extent of the pain caused by Mr. Epstein continues to grow, I have spent time reflecting and searching for answers as to how this could have happened. My heart goes out to each person who has suffered unthinkable pain and I pray for their healing.”
