Epstein had Tony Blair, Mick Jagger's phone numbers in his 'little black book' along with that of Diana's brother
The book contains a cache of over 1,000 phone numbers and email addresses for hundreds of famous people across the globe
An FBI has recovered the "little black book" that belonged to convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who died by apparent suicide on Saturday, August 10.
The book contains a cache of over 1,000 phone numbers and email addresses for hundreds of famous people across the globe.
The collection also included the contact details of 301 British celebrities, including members and acquaintances of the royal family.
Apart from Prince Andrew and his former wife Sarah Ferguson—names which have been previously linked to Epstein—the list also included ex-British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Sir Mick Jagger, Sir David Frost, Richard Branson, Naomi Campbell, and a number of members of the House of Lords.
There were various other royal connections, including Charles Spencer, Princess Diana's brother, and Rosa Monckton, the late princess's best friend, Daily Mail reported.
More than one number was noted against the names of a handful of celebrities on the list.
For example, while Blair's name appears once in the book, ten phone numbers of his former cabinet minister Lord Mandelson has been put down, with labels like "direct line," "home" and "country home."
In a similar manner, there were 16 phone numbers written down for his friend Prince Andrew, who allegedly knew Epstein for more than a decade, including a mobile number and landlines for Sandringham and Balmoral, where the prince once invited the disgraced financier for a visit.
Epstein also had 18 numbers for Andrew's ex-wife noted down in his book.
Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of British media mogul Robert Maxwell and Epstein ex-girlfriend, also had her contact details listed in the book including numbers of her extended family, friends and brief acquaintances.
There was no concrete evidence that the people named in the book were involved with Epstein's crimes as many claimed that they had never met him.
"Jeffrey Epstein has the island next door to Necker but Richard has literally only met him once for about five minutes. That’s the extent of it," a spokesman for Richard Branson said previously.
In the wake of Epstein's death, more than a dozen FBI agents raided a luxurious Caribbean property owned by Epstein on August 12, which is dubbed the "Pedophile Island."
There were reports that underage girls were used as sex slaves inside a temple on the island.
Attorney General William Barr vowed that probe into the sex trafficking charges against Epstein would continue despite the accused's apparent suicide. "Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice," Barr said.
Epstein's death is yet to be officially ruled a suicide, despite the medical examiner having had completed the autopsy. In case it is ruled a suicide, the billionaire investor's family could file a lawsuit, claiming wrongful death because he was in the custody of the state.
