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

BY Marianne Wilson

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.”
