There are more than 1,500 people listed in Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous little black book. Among them are royalty and nobility, celebrities and academics, art collectors and hedge funders, politicians and heads of state: a motley compendium of global high society.
Business Insider has transcribed and tabulated the black book in its entirety, making the entries in the late sex offender’s notorious Rolodex fully searchable for the first time.
First published by Gawker in 2015, the address book was unearthed by the FBI after Epstein’s former Palm Beach, Florida, house manager Alfredo Rodriguez attempted to sell it to an attorney representing an Epstein accuser for $50,000 in 2009. Rodriguez annotated dozens of entries — including those of Donald Trump, Les Wexner, Courtney Love, Ehud Barak, Alan Dershowitz, and two labeled “witness” — but died before he could illuminate their precise meaning.
Still, the volume is undoubtedly significant. “The FBI’s case against him makes clear that Rodriguez regarded the address book as crucial to understanding Epstein’s crimes,” Gawker’s Nick Bryant wrote, citing the 2009 affidavit of an FBI agent who interviewed Rodriguez.
Business Insider’s black-book database comprises only the main entries of the book, excluding any names of people listed beneath them, such as assistants and massage girls who may have been victims of Epstein. Spelling errors, where obvious, were corrected from the original document.
In total, the book contains 1,749 entries, consisting of 1,510 people, 210 businesses, and 25 listings that Business Insider categorized as miscellaneous or unknown. Epstein’s contacts — which likely consist of people he aspired to meet, in addition to those he knew personally — include more than 40 members of royalty and European nobility and a dozen high-ranking politicians and diplomats.
Notable names in Jeffrey Epstein’s black book
Those in Epstein’s orbit lived everywhere from Argentina to Kenya, according to the address book, but the vast majority of his associates resided in the major metropolitan centers of the US and Western Europe, with 383 entries labeled in New York — Epstein’s primary place of residence — and 363 in London, where Ghislaine Maxwell, who is accused of being his coconspirator, lived.
