More Woes For Teen Sex Aficionado Jeff Epstein: Also Lost $57 Million in Bear Stearns Hedge Fund

Florida billionaire Jeff Epstein is not just the most famous man of the week headed to jail for paying for sex with teenage girls. He’s also the mysterious “Major Investor No. 1” in that Bear Stearns hedge fund indictment:

NYP: AS if he doesn’t have enough problems with the sleazy sex charges against him, it turns out billionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein was one of the biggest losers in the Bear Stearns scandal.
