The Jeffrey Epstein "Little Black Book" leak
Following the killing of George Floyd, activists Anonymous released "The Little Black Book of Jeffrey Epstein", a list of famous names with alleged links to the convicted sex offender.
On Sunday, the cyber activists known as Anonymous returned from a three-year period of inactivity to divulge, among other things, what purported to be the star-studded address book of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
What’s Inside Jeffrey Epstein’s Little Black Book?
For some named in Mr. Epstein’s address book, there’s confusion about what they’re doing there.
Described in an F.B.I. affidavit in 2009 as “a small bound book,” the item contains the names of people who viewers theorized may have known Mr. Epstein socially. Being in the book suggested a fuzzy complicity: Might these people also have known, or had some sense, of his crimes?
The group said it was motivated by the death of George Floyd in police custody last week to expose information that the establishment has supposedly kept hidden from the world at large.
"The Little Black Book of Jeffrey Epstein"
Under the title “The Little Black Book of Jeffrey Epstein”, Anonymous published a list of names that included Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka and ex-wife Ivana, supermodel Naomi Campbell, musician Mick Jagger, actor Will Smith and many more.
It must be noted, however, that not all the information in this leak is in fact new: this is not the first time a 'little black book' seemingly of Epstein's contacts has been placed in the public domain.
Epstein is known to have socialised with the likes of Prince Andrew, former US president Bill Clinton and Trump, the current American president. Trump described Epstein as a "terrific guy" in an article in New York Magazine in 2002, but has since maintained that the pair subsequently fell out and that he was "not a fan".
Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who at the time was 17, has alleged that she was coerced into having sex with Prince Andrew in 2001 by Epstein and the socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of the media mogul Robert Maxwell. Giuffre says Epstein paid her $15,000 to have sex with the prince, who denies the claims and says he has “no recollection” of meeting his accuser.
In 2016, meanwhile, a woman accused Trump of raping her at parties held by Epstein when she was just 13, before later dropping a lawsuit against him. Anonymous published court documents seemingly relating to this case on Sunday, and even accused the president of having been behind Epstein's death:
"Not everyone in this book was an associate of Epstein's"
As was noted by the fact-checking website Snopes in the wake of previous leaks, Jeffrey Epstein's apparently extensive and VIP-packed list of contacts raises "questions about who knew about Epstein's activities and, worse, who may have been involved".

However, as Snopes explains, a prominent figure's presence in Epstein's address book does not mean they knew him or even ever met him. Referring to the now-defunct blog Gawker's 2015 publication of his 'little black book', the site clarifies: "While Epstein's black book certainly gives some insight into his social connections, these contacts have also been described as 'aspirational'.
"In other words, not everyone in this book was an associate of Epstein's. Some names in the book were people Epstein 'aspired' to connect with."
