Les Wexner On The Hot Seat
Looks like L Brands and Victoria’s Secret billionaire mogul Les Wexner is the latest Jeffrey Epstein confidant to land on the hot seat. L Brands shareholders last week filed a bombshell lawsuit against Wexner and his executive team, charging that he allowed Epstein, posing as a modeling agent for Victoria’s Secret, to use his Ohio mansion to abuse teen-age girls. Wexner stepped down as CEO of L Brands last May.
Wexner, 83, immediately played the victim card upon hearing of the lawsuit, saying prosecutors are just trying to make news headlines of his name. He claims that Epstein, a successful Wall Street hedge fund manager whom he hired as a money manager, bilked him to the tune of $46 million. Says investigative journalist Shaun Attwood, “Like this old throat-slitter is going to let Epstein pick his pocket for $46 million. C’mon.”
The lawsuit alleges that Epstein directed one of the victims, Virginia Giuffre, to have sex with Wexner, among others. Another victim, Maria Farmer, accused Les’ wife, Abigail Wexner, of acquiescence while Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell assaulted her. Tune in as Attwood brings us more sordid details from the lawsuit
