Leon Black sorry. Sorry, we’re sure, about how close his relationship with the convicted child worker Jeffrey Epstein is. Sorry that he directed his teammates “Funded” as much as $ 75 million After a long period He officially became a registered sex offender. But mostly, if it seemed, sorry that others Keep paying attention to itWhich leads to embarrassing questions from the customers’ side and force them to do so The least favorite thing: Talking about Geoffrey Epstein.
Wall Street mogul and co-founder of Apollo Global Management, Leon Black, expressed regret for his dealings with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in a letter to investors Monday …. Black said in the letter that his relationship with Epstein extended only to professional services that include “planning Real estate, tax and charitable endeavors. ” He also wrote that he met Epstein occasionally at Epstein’s home in New York to do business, as Epstein did not have a separate office. He also mentioned visiting the private Epstein Island for a “picnic lunch”. Black said in the letter that his immediate family members accompanied him.
Black stated in the letter: “With the benefit of hindsight – and knowing all that emerged about Epstein’s despicable behavior more than fifteen years ago – I feel very sorry to have shared any relationship with him.”
Fifteen years ago, it was exactly Epstein’s time Tendency for teenage girls It became common knowledge. even in Donald Trump realized the guy was creepy. And 12 years ago, when he was convicted of soliciting a minor, and he was imprisoned for more than a year for that. On the other hand, is Black related to it?
Black “received trust advice and estate planning as well as philanthropic and investment services for family offices from several financial and legal advisers, including Mr. Epstein, during a six-year period, between 2012 and 2017.”
Well, dear, loyal Apollo investor, you can still take solace on two things: First, Epstein never came close to the private equity company itself, and Leon Black didn’t lie to you. I canceled out some things, perhaps, ignored only some details that matter Yellow Journalists, But certainly not expressly told a lie.
In the letter to Apollo Associates Limited, Black stated: “None of the reports in this recent New York Times article contradict in any way the information I shared with you over a year ago.”
