Was Wexner involved with Victoria Secrets?
I remember Wexner was connected to Victoria secrets models, and Victoria Secret show was eventually cancelled a few years ago.He's the founder from memory.
Their models would be a little old for Epstein's taste
According to the Times, less than a year after Farmer’s alleged assault, executives at L Brands learned that Epstein was “trying to involve himself in the recruitment of lingerie models for the Victoria’s Secret catalog.” In May 1997, Alicia Arden, a model in California, claims that Epstein identified himself as a “talent scout” for the lingerie brand. He allegedly invited her to his Santa Monica hotel room to “audition.” According to Arden, he grabbed her, tried to undress her, and said he wanted to “manhandle” her. She went to the police shortly thereafter and filed a report. It is one of the earliest known police records of an allegation of sexual misconduct against Epstein.
According to two executives interviewed by the Times, Wexner was alerted to Epstein’s behavior and “promised to take care of the issue.” Epstein was charged in 2006, and Wexner allegedly severed ties 18 months later.
