Recently, unsealed documents have added a new chapter to the scandal involving sex offender and financier Jeffrey Epstein. These documents reveal Epstein’s efforts to undermine serious allegations against him involving high-profile figures like Stephen Hawking and Bill Clinton.
According to these documents, Epstein instructed Ghislaine Maxwell in a 2015 email to offer a reward to anyone who could discredit Virginia Giuffre’s claims, a key accuser in the Prince Andrew case.
The strategy aimed to challenge specific allegations, particularly those involving an event with Stephen Hawking and former US President Bill Clinton. Epstein focused on disproving the narrative of an “underage orgy” that supposedly included Hawking during a gathering in the Virgin Islands.
The documents also brought to light Epstein’s connections with renowned personalities, including photos from 2015 that showed physicist Stephen Hawking at a barbecue on Epstein’s private island, Little St James, commonly referred to as “Paedo Island.” This event, funded by Epstein, was attended by 21 scientists, including Hawking.
Furthermore, the revelations implicate several celebrities and politicians, underlining the breadth of Epstein’s high-profile network. In a separate but related development, Johanna Sjoberg, who accused Prince Andrew of misconduct, claimed she met Michael Jackson at Epstein’s residence. These ongoing disclosures continue to unravel the complex web of Epstein’s relationships and the alleged wrongdoings of his associates, keeping the public deeply engaged in the scandal.
