Jeffrey Epstein

Frenchman Jean-Luc Brunel – who knew deceased sex offender and U.S. financier Jeffrey Epstein – was placed in custody on Wednesday in Paris, the Paris prosecutor’s office said on Thursday.

The department also told Reuters that his custody was part of a probe opened last year into allegations of rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment.

Brunel, who has denied any wrongdoing, had in 2015 sued Epstein, claiming Epstein’s high-profile legal troubles had unfairly embroiled him and damaged his modelling agency’s reputation. (

Epstein died in August 2019 in his jail cell in the United States, and an autopsy report concluded he hanged himself.
