Millions have been wiped off the price of Jeffrey Epstein's private islands, which are associated with several allegations of abuse.

Back in March, it was reported that Little St James and Great St James - both situated in the US Virgin Islands - were put on the market by the estate of the late convicted sex offender and paedophile for $125 million (£95m).

Both properties are now listed at $55 million each, meaning $5million has been dropped from each respectively - approximately $10,000,000 (£8,332,000) in total.

It was reported back in March by The Wall Street Journal that the islands had been listed for $125 million with proceeds of the sale going towards resolving outstanding lawsuits and the costs of estate operations, according to attorney Daniel Weiner.

LADbible has approached Bespoke Real Estate, the company handling both listings, for comment. 

Epstein bought Little St James in 1998. The island spans more than 70 acres, boasting a helipad, private dock, two pools, three private beaches and a gym. He then bought Great St James in 2016.

At the time of the financier's death, his estate was valued at more than $650 million, however this number has dropped significantly in the wake of numerous sexual assault allegations centred around Epstein.

Epstein's estate paid out an estimated $120 million to his victims of sexual assault via the Epstein Victims’ Compensation Program, which closed last year after making payments to approximately 135 claimants.

Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who's spoken about enduring years of abuse at the hands of Epstein, previously referenced Little St James while making claims against Prince Andrew in court documents.

She wrote, according The Times: "The third time I had sex with Andy was in an orgy on Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Islands. I was around 18 at the time.

"Epstein, Andy, approximately eight other young girls and I had sex together. The other girls all seemed and appeared to be under the age of 18 and didn’t really speak English.

"Epstein laughed about the fact they couldn’t really communicate, saying that they are the ‘easiest’ girls to get along with."

The attorney general of the US Virgin Islands attempted to seize Little St James as government property and described the island as ‘the perfect hideaway and haven for trafficking young women and underage girls for sexual servitude, child abuse and sexual assault’.

The complaint alleged: "Epstein and his associates could avoid detection of their illegal activity from Virgin Islands and federal law enforcement, and prevent these young women and underage girls from leaving freely and escaping the abuse."
