Former L Brands CEO Les Wexner may have been Jeffrey Epstein's only confirmed client, but he was far from the ultrawealthy sex offender's only high powered friend.

Epstein ran a years-long "trafficking pyramid scheme" from the US Virgin Islands, prosecutors alleged in a lawsuit against the former wealth manager's estate in January. Meanwhile, the convicted sex offender maintained a vast social and professional network both on and off the Islands, which even included the wife of the US Virgin Islands' former governor. The former hedge-fund manager kept his client list under wraps, but he often bragged of his elite social circle that included presidents and Hollywood stars.

"I invest in people — be it politics or science," Epstein was known to say, according to New York Magazine. "It's what I do."

Now the British socialite who allegedly introduced Epstein and helped him recruit girls to abuse has been arrested on charges of sex trafficking and perjury in New Hampshire on Thursday, The New York Times reported. Ghislaine Maxwell, who is also believed to have been Epstein's ex-girlfriend, worked with Epstein to "recruit, groom and ultimately abuse" children, her indictment states.

Epstein, 66, died by suicide in a Manhattan jail on August 10, as he awaited trial on charges of sex trafficking of minors.
