Jeffrey Epstein crashed party wearing 'Screw U' shoes along with seemingly underage girl after being convicted of child prostitution
Epstein flaunted the fact that the conviction did not affect him in the least and continued about his illicit activities like nothing had changed, according to reports
In June 2008, multimillionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty and was convicted by a Florida state court of soliciting a prostitute and of procuring an underage girl for prostitution. He was subsequently sentenced to 13 months in prison and had to register as a sex offender.
However, that didn't stop him from openly flaunting continued affairs he had with seemingly underage girls, according to Fox Business.
The outlet reported that Epstein walked into a lunch party at a Palm Beach mansion in 2015 uninvited—he lived just a few doors down and dropped by to say hello to the host, a wealthy entrepreneur—much to everyone's amusement.
The 66-year-old then proceeded to shock several affluent guests at the party by introducing to everyone a very young girl who had accompanied him as his girlfriend.
Guests said he easily mingled with everyone at the party as if his past shouldn't concern them. And if that failed to broadcast the message that he didn't care about their opinions, his shoes and outfit certainly did.
Epstein was reportedly wearing a pair of $525 black velvet slippers with an image of a screw emblazoned on the right foot and the letter "U" on the left, which together read "Screw U".
He also wore jeans and a monogrammed zip-up shirt with his initials 'J.E.'
The millionaire didn't shy away from introducing his girlfriend, who was "tall, thin, and appeared young" and spoke in a heavy eastern European accent, to everyone at the party.
"We all got the message," one of the guests said. "Jeffrey couldn't care less about what we thought about him or who he was with."
The guest said Epstein was eagerly discussing Wall Street with some of the guests at the party and even brought up his private island in Little St. James in the U.S. Virgin Islands—the very same one which is believed to have been home to his primary residence and which FBI raided recently and seized boxes of evidence.
He also allegedly struck up a suspicious conversation with a guest who owned a small private company and enquired about whether his jets were large enough to accommodate all the people he would like to take to the island during his next visit.
As soon as he left the party, the conversation immediately turned to the young girl. "Was she legal?” someone asked.
His appearance didn't go unnoticed either. When one guest remarked, "How about those shoes?", the host reportedly just shook his head and muttered, "That's Jeffrey".
Epstein was arrested again in July on federal charges of sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York.
He was awaiting trial at Manhattan's Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) when he was found dead in his cell from an apparent suicide attempt on August 10.
