An estate belonging to pro golfer Greg Norman has sold for about $60 million. According to The Real Deal, the Jupiter Island property which was listed at $59.9 million went to the Wexner Family. Less Wexner and his wife Abigail have been embroiled in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.
Les Wexner, the reported buyer, is the mogul behind Victoria’s secret. The 83 year old business tycoon recently found himself accused of being a participant in Jeffrey Epstein’s cabal of child rapists. Last month he and his 59 year old wife Abigail were sued for allowing Epstein to use their home for his liaisons with underage girls.

The Daily Mail cited a formal complaint which stated that, “Over a period of many years, the convicted and now-deceased sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein, had a close social and financial relationship with Mr. Wexner and his wife, defendant Abigail S. Wexner.”
“Another victim, Maria Farmer, has accused Abigail Wexner of acquiescence while Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell sexually assaulted her in the New Albany compound [belonging to the Wexners] and, effectively imprisoned her there and kept her under security guard,” says the lawsuit.
“Mr. Wexner knew or should have known that Epstein was using his relationship with the Wexners and to the Company to recruit aspiring models by posing as a recruiter and lying to them about his ability to get them Victoria’s Secret assignments,” says the complainants.
