Jimmy Kimmel is close friends with Jeffrey Epstein’s associate, former private chef
Kimmel recently called Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers a conspiracy theorist for wanting to know the names on Epstein’s client list.
Jimmy Kimmel, who recently called Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers a conspiracy theorist for wanting to know the names on infamous financier Jeffrey Epstein’s client list, has been revealed to be friends with former Epstein chef Adam Perry Lang.
The connection between Kimmel, Lang, and Epstein was uncovered by internet sleuths and amplified by The Daily Wire's Brett Cooper.
Lang is seen in a number of posts on Kimmel’s Instagram, including most recently the pair being seen at the Oscars behind the scenes, as well as another post of the two gathering for Super Bowl Sunday last month.
In a 2019 Eater report, Lang confirmed that he worked for the convicted sex offender in the early 2000s.
"Almost 20 years ago, as a young chef I was hired to work for Jeffrey Epstein," the chef says in a statement to Eater. "My role was limited to meal preparation. I was unaware of the depraved behavior and have great sympathy and admiration for the brave women who have come forward."
A representative for the chef told Eater that "no further comment will be issued" about his relationship to Epstein.
Unsealed court documents showed that pilot David Roger claimed that he flew Lang and Epstein aboard his private jet on several occasions in 2000 and 2001. The court documents were in regard to alleged Epstein trafficking victim Virginia Giuffre. Flight logs showed that the chef traveled with Epstein to the Virgin Islands, Santa Fe, and Palm Beach.
According to Eater, the pilot also mentioned that Lang had on occasion stayed at Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse on East 71st street, and sometimes rode with the pilot and his crew "to or from the airport."
Rodgers explicitly stated that Lang traveled on six flights between 2000 and 2001 as an Epstein passenger. One mAy 2001 flight, Rodgers said, saw Lang fly with Epstein, a close associate and convicted child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, and Maxwell assistant Emmy Tayler.
In December 2020, the pilot said Lang flew with Epstein, Giuffre, MIT professor Marvin Minsky, and Maxwell from Teterboro to the Virgin Islands, where Epstein owned the small island of Little Saint James.
In a September 2020 episode of the podcast Broken: Seeking Justice hosted by journalist Tara Palmeri, it was revealed that Giuffre had attempted to reach Lang about what he may have witnessed while working for Epstein, according to Eater.
Lang told the podcast in a statement that he never witnessed any sexual activity or nudity, and was unaware of any underage girls.
According to the podcast, Giuffre said that Lang served naked girls who were on the property iced tea, water, and fruit platters. Several women Palmieri spoke with remembered Lang at Epstein’s properties, calling him "very polite."
Giuffre reportedly had extended interactions with Lang due to strict diets, saying “I went to the kitchen to go get something and I was starving,” and asked Lang to make her a pizza.
He would have a pizza waiting for me already in the kitchen…we would just have a beer together and eat pizza and just talk. Sometimes I’d help him wash the dishes,” she added. According to Eater, Maxwell reportedly caught wind of the nightly routine, and reprimanded both Lang and Giuffre, making sure they had no more contact.
The podcast episode followed Palmeri and Giuffre as they attempted to deliver to Lang a letter urging him to help those who were abused.
