New Albany billionaire Leslie H. Wexner on Jeffrey Epstein list


Jeffrey Epstein, shown here in his 2019 arrest mug shot, had deep ties to New Albany entrepreneur Les Wexner that Wexner said were severed when Epstein was arrested on sex trafficking charges.

Jeffrey Epstein was a longtime financial adviser and business partner with New Albany billionaire Leslie H. Wexner, founder of L Brands, a onetime retail empire that included Victoria’s Secret, Bath & Body Works and other famous brands.

So it was no surprise that Wexner’s name appeared on a list of names of Epstein associates that were redacted from a 2015 civil lawsuit filed by Virginia Giuffre, who accused Epstein and partner Ghislaine Maxwell of directing her sexual involvement with prominent men. The case was settled in 2017. Last month, U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska of the Southern District of New York ordered the list of names be released because there was no longer a need for them to remain hidden.
