COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--L Brands Founder and CEO Les Wexner says he is embarrassed to have ever worked with Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire who was charged with sex trafficking involving underage girls, and committed suicide in prison.
Wexner addressed shareholders at the company's annual meeting Tuesday, calling Epstein, "sick, cunning, and depraved."
Epstein at one time served as Wexner's money manager. L Brands also recently stated they are looking into whether Epstein had other connections to the company.
L Brands has seen difficulties in its business in the past year, due mainly to the lackluster performance of it's "Victoria's Secret" brand. L Brands stock is down about 35-percent this year.
L Brands also has "PINK" and Bath and Body Works as its other main divisions.
