According to The New York Post: ”The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has reportedly opened a criminal probe into billionaire Leon Black over allegations he raped two models.

The investigation, revealed by two sources to Vanity Fair, focuses on claims in a civil suit filed by a Russian model who accuses the 70-year-old financier of sexual assault.

Guzel Ganieva alleged in June that Black, the former CEO of Apollo Global Management, raped her in 2014.”

As well, Ms Ganieva amended her suit to include claims by another woman that Black had raped her in Epstein’s townhouse in 2002.

According to Black’s representatives in Vanity Fair: “As we have previously stated, Mr. Black has provided substantial documentary evidence in legal filings, including text messages and recordings, that show Ms. Ganieva’s claims to be completely false,

In addition, we have been in contact with the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and provided detailed evidence of Ms. Ganieva’s extortion of Mr. Black.”

In a massive fall from grace, Black was forced to step down from Apollo after an internal investigation found he paid Epstein $158 million in fees between 2012 and 2017.

The payments to Epstein were for “tax advice” and “estate planning” and it was also revealed the two had regular breakfast meetings.

Black was last night seen in New York City out on the town with his wife, Deborah.
