Jeffrey Epstein's Paris apartment sells for more than $10 million

A Paris apartment formerly owned by financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein has sold for more than $10 million.

The luxury apartment, which is 7,373 square feet, was purchased by Bulgarian plastics magnate Georgi Tuchev in June.

Tuchev snagged the property for $10.4 million — slightly less than the $12 million listing price.

The deal was brokered by Sotheby's International Realty for $440,000. A portion of the sale price will be used by the Epstein estate to help the late sex offender's victims.

The Parisian apartment sale is one of the latest in the ongoing effort to liquidate Epstein's estate to cover legal fees and payouts.

The territorial government is going to pay more than $105 million in cash, the culmination of years of years of pursuing the estate for damages related to his alleged operation of a sex abuse compound on his private islands, Great St. James and Little St. James.

Half of the sale price will be paid to the U.S. Virgin Islands, with both islands set to go up for sale as part of the agreement.

Epstein was found dead in his jail cell in 2019 while awaiting trial on a sex trafficking indictment.

Prosecutors claimed that the wealthy hedge fund manager preyed on dozens of victims as young as 14 years old.
