Jim Carrey is suing YouTuber Vincent Briatore over alleged false claims of Carrey being on the flight logs of Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express.”
Actor Jim Carrey is suing YouTuber Vincent Briatore over allegations made in a video that Carrey was on the flight logs of Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane, dubbed the “Lolita Express.” The flight logs, which have not been officially released, have been a source of controversy and speculation since Epstein’s arrest.
Vincent Briatore shared the video, which he did not create, and commented on it, leading to Carrey’s legal action. Carrey claims that the allegations made in the video are false and have harmed his career. The video has reportedly been viewed almost 3 million times.
Other high-profile individuals, including former President Bill Clinton, Britain’s Prince Andrew, and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, have also been named on the flight logs. The existence of the flight logs has led to calls for a full investigation into Epstein’s connections and alleged crimes.
Carrey has been vocal about his suspicions regarding Epstein’s powerful connections before. In a tweet accompanying an illustration of Epstein being zipped up in a body bag, Carrey wrote, “No suicide watch is murder,” suggesting that he believes Epstein’s death was not a suicide, but rather a murder. Carrey has also shared other drawings implicating President Donald Trump and former President Bill Clinton in Epstein’s crimes.
This controversy surrounding Epstein’s connections and alleged crimes has led to speculation and conspiracy theories about the extent of the abuse and exploitation. The flight logs, in particular, have fueled these theories, with many questioning who else may have been involved and what information has been suppressed.
Despite the flight logs being introduced as evidence in the Epstein trial and widely reported by media outlets, the judge presiding over the case, Alison J. Nathan, did not make them public. This has led to suspicion among some that the flight logs may contain information that those involved do not want to be made public. Although some documents related to Epstein and his associates were unsealed by Judge Loretta Preska, the flight log remains under seal with some believing there may be “sufficient interest to preserve sealing.”
