Jeffrey Epstein apparently had a picture of former President Bill Clinton in his Manhattan home. In the painting, Clinton is wearing a blue dress and red high heels. We’re going to need a bit more explanation here.
The painting is called “Parsing Bill” and it was created by artist Petrina Ryan-Kleid. It’s not clear whether Epstein bought the painting or if this was a print.
The painting was originally spotted in 2012; the person who saw it was at a business meeting at Epstein’s home and took a picture of it.
According to an unnamed source, she saw the portrait while going from Epstein’s office to his living quarters.
“It was through a door that had been left temporarily open by his housekeeper or butler.”
“I thought, ”Why in the world would Epstein have that up?’ I didn’t even know that they knew each other,” said the source.

Epstein and Bill Clinton had been friends, though Clinton has denied flying aboard Epstein’s private plane, the “Lolita Express,” to get to Little St. James island in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The anonymous source confirmed to Daily Mail that it was indeed a painting of Clinton in a dress.
“It was absolutely Bill Clinton. It was shocking — it was definitely a painting of him. It was a very provocative, sexual picture. He was wearing heels, a blue dress and his hand was in a weird position.”
Epstein was found dead in his jail cell at Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City on Saturday. He was then transported to the hospital but later confirmed dead. Initial reports suggest he killed himself.
Controversy surrounds Epstein’s death, as he had recently been on suicide watch at the time he was found.
