WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Law enforcement sources told The New York Post that a peculiar painting of former President Bill Clinton wearing a dress and heels was hanging prominently in a room at Jeffrey Epstein’s home.
- The painting shows Clinton sitting on a chair in the Oval Office with his finger pointing at the spectator.
- It is believed that the painting is the same as the oil painting of a New York artist who named it “Parsing Bill”.
An oil painting of Bill Clinton in a blue dress and heels lazing on a chair in the Oval Office is found hanging on Jeffrey Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse, said sources from law enforcement.
In the painting, the former president can be seen sprawled on a chair wearing red heels and a blue dress reminiscent of Monica Lewinsky’s attire during their White House hookup while pointing his finger towards the viewer.
“It was hanging up there prominently — as soon as you walked in — in a room to the right,” said a source to The Post who added that everyone laughed and smirked when they saw it.
Sources also told The Post that the painting in Epstein’s house seems to be the same oil painting titled “Parsing Bill” that was painted and sold by New York-based artist Petrina Ryan-Kleid. Online art gallery Saatchi Art described Ryan-Kleid’s painting as an “oil on canvas” with 40 W x 40 H x 2 in. dimensions.
But the odd home decor wasn’t the only one.
A mannequin dressed up in a wedding dress and hanging from the ceiling was also kept by the 66-year-old millionaire which according to the source, the doll was positioned above a staircase.
A woman who visited the Epstein’s $56M townhouse confirmed to Daily Mail that there was really a painting of Clinton which she photographed and posted online on Wednesday, although no mention about the existence of the mannequin was made.
Although attempts to reach Ryan-Kleid on Wednesday night proved unsuccessful, a relative who was contacted said he knew the painting existed but didn’t know of its relation to Epstein.
There was no immediate response yet to requests for comments from the Clinton camp.
