The billionaire who runs the company behind Victoria’s Secret reportedly has a problem with Jeffrey Epstein.

According to Dow Jones, Leslie Wexner, the founder and chief executive of L Brands Inc., is claiming to members of his foundation that his former money manager misused more than $46 million from his empire.

Epstein is currently in a jail cell awaiting trial on accusations he sexually abused underage girls.

Dow Jones reports the L Brands chief executive wrote a letter to members of the Wexner Foundation explaining how he uncovered the misappropriation of funds after cutting ties with Epstein in 2007.

“This was, frankly, a tremendous shock, even though it clearly pales in comparison to the unthinkable allegations against him now,” the letter states.

Tax records reportedly show the $46 million was transferred to a charitable fund in January 2008.

“All of that money — every dollar of it — was originally Wexner family money.”

Dow Jones was unable to secure a comment from Epstein’s lawyers at the time they first reported the news.

Epstein is facing up to 45 years in prison for allegedly taking part in a scheme to find underage girls to give him massages in his homes across the country, where he sexually abused them.
