Leon Black has now been accused of rape by a second woman. The accusations against the former head of Apollo Global Management are related to the late rapist and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. The new accuser’s identity has not been revealed and she is known simply as Jane Doe.
In a new court filing, Doe is described as a “struggling single mother’ and former model from New Jersey who knew Epstein first. It was Epstein who sent Doe to Black, she claims. The suit claims that she met with Black in the massage room in Epstein’s mansion. Black paid her $300, and then proceeded to assault her, causing Doe “tearing pain.”
Doe says that she later agreed to meet Leon Black in Manhattan’s St. Regis Hotel and that Black paid her $5,000 for the visit.
Leon Black’s people, of course, have denied the new charges. A spokesman for Black said, “This claim is complete fiction and has no basis in fact or law. It is telling that it is asserted anonymously and concerns events that allegedly occurred some 20 years ago.”
“It is abundantly clear that the only goal here is to publicly destroy Mr. Black’s personal and professional reputation and to defame him by perpetrating a baseless smear campaign,” added the rep.
In June, Leon Black a lawsuit was filed against Leon Black accusing him of defamation. One Güzel Ganieva accuses Black of coercing her into silence after committing acts of sexual violence against her as well as defamation. The suit was filed in New York City.
Guzel claims that she was taken by Black to Jeffrey Epstein’s estate and handed over like a present.
The 69 year old Wall Street power player was supposed to stay on with Apollo Global Management until the end of this year. However, Leon Black was forced to abruptly resign in March, after announcing his retirement in January of this year. But even his “retirement” was not entirely voluntary. Black was pushed into it after a plethora of revelations were made about his relationship with the late rapist and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The decision to step aside came after several years of speculation as to what exactly Black’s relationship with Epstein was. And now the lawsuit.
