Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion was like “Eyes Wide Shut with a twist” during a dinner with Prince Andrew, according to Katie Couric’s memoir.JJ
The Duke of York told the BBC he stayed with the New York financier, who was at the time a convicted pedophile, in order to break off the friendship honorably in 2010.
Queen Elizabeth II’s son was dismissive of suggestions a party was thrown in his honor and said: “I went there with the sole purpose of saying to him that because he had been convicted, it was inappropriate for us to be seen together.”
However, Katie Couric describes being at a dinner party Epstein threw where Andrew was a guest, saying the townhouse was like “Eyes Wide Shut with a twist—creepy chandeliers and body-part art.”
The former Today host said lasagna was served in bowls and Epstein “held court” by the fireplace, but her then-boyfriend Brooks Perlin commented on the women who took their coats, noting how young they were.
