Elon Musk Subpoenaed in Jeffrey Epstein Sex Trafficking Case

The US Virgin Islands has subpoenaed Tesla CEO Elon Musk for documents related to his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, the late convicted sex offender.

The subpoena, which was issued on April 28, seeks any documents that Musk has about Epstein’s involvement in human trafficking and his procurement of girls or women for commercial sex. The subpoena also seeks any communications between Musk and Epstein, as well as any communications between Musk and JPMorgan Chase, Epstein’s longtime bank.

Musk has denied any wrongdoing in connection with Epstein. In a tweet on Monday, he said that the notion that he would listen to financial advice from Epstein was “absurd.”

“That cretin never advised me on anything whatsoever,” Musk wrote.

Epstein was accused of running a sex trafficking ring from 2002 to 2005, allegedly paying girls as young as 14 for sex. He died in jail in 2019 while awaiting trial, his death was ruled as a suicide.

The US Virgin Islands is suing JPMorgan Chase, alleging that the bank enabled Epstein’s abuse of women on Little St. James, a private island he owned in the territory. The bank has denied any wrongdoing.

Musk is the second tech entrepreneur to be subpoenaed in the Virgin Islands case. It was reported last week that the territory is having trouble serving legal papers to Google co-founder Larry Page.

The subpoenas are part of a broader effort by the Virgin Islands to hold JPMorgan Chase accountable for its alleged role in Epstein’s abuse of women. The case is still in its early stages, and it is unclear what, if any, damages the Virgin Islands will be able to recover.
