Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.Sandy Lewis, the former Wall Street arbitrageur and son of Cy Lewis, the onetime senior partner at Bear Stearns, first met Leslie Wexner in the early s when he was dispatched by Milton Petrie, another retailing mogul, to Columbus, Ohio.

Petrie wanted to buy the Limited from Wexner, its founder and now the subject of much speculation because of his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, convicted of sex with minors in and newly accused of sex trafficking, a charge to which he has pleaded not guilty. Lewis told him no, which surprised Wexner since Lewis was working for Petrie to buy the company, now known as L Brands, from Wexner. The conversation had been very frank, and at the end, Wexner asked if there was anything else Lewis wanted to say.

In fact, there was, Lewis recalled. Does she help you run this business or is she just a pain in the ass? I was being direct. And he knew what I was saying…. Get her out of here. Just forget it. It was an odd first conversation, to be sure, but the two men hit it off. They were the same age, and Jewish men of the same class.

They had a dinner a few times together in New York City. Wexner did not respond to a request for comment. At one point, in AprilLane Bryant Inc. As an arbitrageur operating his own eponymous firm, Lewis accumulated some of the stock of Lane Bryant, as would have been standard practice in those days in a takeover situation. He called Wexner, who was immediately interested in the idea. But the next day, Lewis was fired; he thinks another Limited C-suite executive blackballed him.

The day after that, however, Wexner reinstated him on the deal. They went full steam ahead to buy Lane Bryant, using a tender offer to buy stock in the marketplace. Time was of the essence and Lewis worked all weekend with the lawyers to prepare the tender offer, to put an advertisement in the newspaper about the offer and to launch the bid on Monday morning. Everything was set. But Wexner was nowhere to be found.

Lewis was panicking. Finally, late Sunday night Wexner called him back.

How are things, he wanted to know. This is not his strength. This man is a genius at dressing women. This is a guy who feels what they feel. Some guys write music, this guy knows how to dress women. Wexner did not respond for 47 days. And then paid the bill. He then bought the Limited deal team, including Wexner, expensive Vacheron Constantin watches. As I reported two weeks ago, Robert Meister, a former vice chairman of Aon, the big insurance brokerage, introduced Epstein to Wexner.

Some things Maria discusses here: -Seeing preparations for then-President Clinton visiting Epstein and Maxwell, all employees incl Maria were asked to leave premises before his arrival -Ivana Trump ties to Ghislaine Maxwell -Maria's horrifying experience at Leslie Wexner's house.

The Last American Vagabond has decided to release the entire phone conversation between Whitney Webb and Maria Farmer, a victim of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell who had reported both to the FBI in for child pornography, sex trafficking and sexual assault. The phone call will be released in two parts, the first part can be heard below.

The decision to release this phone call was twofold: first, to show that claims Whitney has made in recent interviews were indeed accurately based on statements Maria made during the call and to provide greater context to those statements; and second, to make the information publicly available and more easily disseminated to the widest audience possible. During the call, Maria covers a lot of ground and the call was never intended to be released as an interview, as Whitney gave Maria free range to discuss situations and topics without prompting from Whitney.

According to property records, Wexner purchased the property -- a palatial mansion located at 9 East 71st St. But perhaps the most mysterious financial entanglement between Wexner and Epstein is scattered across thousands of pages of S. Much of the money was certainly used for charitable purposes, but according to Volscho and Boyd, a potential pattern appears to emerge, one in which Epstein liquidates large amount of stock on behalf of these trusts and then, shortly after, makes large purchases for himself, including homes, planes, even a private island.

And it's unclear exactly, without having access to a private bank statement, how that happens. Epstein certainly used his connection to Wexner to enrich himself, but at least two women have said he also used it to facilitate attempts at abuse.

When she arrived at his hotel room, Arden said, Epstein groped her. Arden left the hotel room and later filed a report of sexual battery with the Santa Monica Police Department, one of the earliest known reports against Epstein for abusive behavior. The police, however, do not appear to have pursued the matter.
