Jeffrey Epstein Had Creepy Painting of Close Friend Bill Clinton Painting in Pedophile Lair
Jeffrey Epstein had a ‘provocative and sexual’ portrait of Bill Clinton wearing a blue dress and red heels hanging in the lounge of his Manhattan town house. The picture depicted the former US president lounging in the Oval Office and is believed to reference his infamous affair with intern Monika Lewinsky, who famously donned a blue dress during their White House hook up. The dress is also strikingly similar to one worn by Hillary Clinton at the 2009 Kennedy Center Honors.
The portrait was snapped when a business woman visited Epstein’s $56m mansion in 2012 – before the millionaire was accused of running a sex trafficking ring for underage girls. She told the Daily Mail that during the encounter, she spotted a girl who appeared to be 14 lingering around and waiting for the financier. Esptein was found dead by suicide on Saturday after he was arrested on sex trafficking charges in July. He and Clinton were known to be friends, although the now 72-year-old has denied claims he ever visited Epstein’s so-called ‘Paedophile Island’ in Little St James.
The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, said she was shocked to catch sight of the portrait through an open door as she walked through Epstein’s lavish home. She told the Daily Mail: ‘It was absolutely Bill Clinton. It was shocking – it was definitely a painting of him. It was a very provocative, sexual picture. He was wearing heels, a blue dress and his hand was in a weird position.’ The original painting is called ‘Parsing Bill’ and is by Australian-American artist Petrina Ryan-Kleid.
It is unclear if Epstein had bought the canvas or had a print mounted. Last month the former president’s office said he had not known anything of Epstein’s crimes and had taken only four trips with him between 2002 and 2003. One of Epstein’s former sex slaves, Virginia Roberts, claimed she saw Clinton on the island for a dinner held in his honour after he left office, and stood by the claim when questioned under oath.
