Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell in New York on Saturday, August 10.

He was arrested again on July 6 and was facing fresh sex trafficking charges.

The billionaire was found hanged in the morning, and is believed to have taken his own life, according to US media.

Jeffrey Epstein net worth:

Despite being coined a “billionaire” in media, Epstein was never included in the Forbes list of World Billionaires.

According to the publication, this is because there has never been proof he holds a 10-figure fortune.

The publication wrote in 2010: “The source of his wealth – a money management firm in the US Virgin Islands – generates no public records, nor has his client list ever been released.”

But Epstein was definitely a millionaire, owning at least six luxury properties.

They included a multimillion-dollar mansion in Manhattan, which is worth an estimated $77million.

The seven-storey mansion is mysterious, because the details of how he acquired the home aren’t clear.

However, it is thought there was a transaction between him and his client Les Wexner in 1995.

Public records show the ownership was transferred to Maple Inc, a company controlled by Epstein.
