Elon Musk Receives Subpoena in US Virgin Islands’ Jeffrey Epstein Litigation

The US Virgin Islands has issued a subpoena to Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Inc, requesting documents related to the lawsuit accusing JPMorgan Chase & Co of facilitating sexual abuses by the late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The subpoena, which was issued on April 28, was revealed in a recent court filing by the Virgin Islands, as they sought alternative means to serve Musk after being unable to locate him.

It’s important to note that the subpoena does not imply any wrongdoing on Musk’s part, and the US territory has not sought to question him under oath.

The court filing suggests that Musk, known for his prominent status as one of the wealthiest individuals globally, may have been referred to JPMorgan by Epstein.

However, the specific reasons for the Virgin Islands’ interest in obtaining documents from Musk were not disclosed in the filing.

In response to the recent developments, Elon Musk took to Twitter on Monday to address the accusations and vehemently denied any involvement or receipt of financial advice from Jeffrey Epstein. He stated that the idea of him seeking guidance from Epstein was absurd and referred to the late sex offender as a “cretin” who never advised him on anything.

It’s important to note that Epstein died by suicide in 2019 while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges in a Manhattan jail cell. The lawsuit filed by the US Virgin Islands alleges that JPMorgan failed to detect warning signs of Epstein’s abuse of women on his private island, Little St James, which he owned in the US Virgin Islands.
