The Simpson’s Matt Groening is Named in Epstein Documents

Matt Groening

This past Friday, court documents were unsealed revealing thousands of documents surrounding the defamation suit between Jeffrey Epstein‘s accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre and Epstein associate/”madam,” Ghislaine Maxwell. Giuffre accused Epstein and Maxwell of sex-trafficking her and Giuffre sued Maxwell for defamation in return. The case was settled in May 2017.

167 documents with thousands of pages were under seal and some are now making their way into the public. Within, numerous celebrities and politicians are named and accused of inappropriate behavior including sex with underage women (aka rape).

One story recounted by Giuffre involves Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons and founder of comic publishers Bongo Comics and Bapper Books, and creator behind the Life in Hell comic strip. Groening isn’t accused of sex with underage girls, but instead, the story revolves around a foot rub and a very specific description of his feet.

From the document:

Epstein’s many Hollywood pals include Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons. Jeffrey once had me give Matt a foot massage when he was flying on the jet with us, Virginia says. He laughed and did drawings of Bart and Homer for my little brother and my dad.


Before asking me about Jeffrey Epstein speaking to celebrities at the house, the attorney for Jane Doe 102 asked me about Jean Luc Brunel, Mark Epstein, Daniel Estes, Matt Groening, and Leslie Wexner. I then listed Senator Mitchell, Prince Andrew, Princess Sarah Ferguson, Miss Yugoslavia, Miss Germany, Alan Dershowitz, Princess Diana’s secretary with her children, Mr. Trump, Mr. Robert Kennedy, Jr., Frederik Fekkai, and a couple Noble prize winners as celebrities that I had seen while working for Mr. Epstein. I also mentioned a reunion of Nobel prize winners that was held at the house, and that I met President Clinton at Mr. Epstein’s plane the last month that I was working for Mr. Epstein


We went out the next afternoon as I had suggested last night and we ate our clam chowder breadbaskets over looking the whart’s bay, watching the seals playfully barking at each other on the rocks nearby. Shortly after we were driven to the private airstrip and took off for Los Angeles. On the plane was an unexpected visitor. Matt Groening the producer of the The Simpson’s TV show was catching a ride with us. I was so excited,
as I loved watching his show and acted like a star struck fan, asking him everything from his initial idea for creating the show to where he got his
characters from. He told me it was all based on his own family make up, but without the crazy father and son scenes of Homers hand around Bart’s throat.

I was enjoying our conversation, when Jeffrey insisted that I give Matt a foot massage throughout the duration of the short flight. I never turned down a client but when I saw the shape ofhis feet, I nearly threw up at the thought of having to touch them. He had yellow crusty toenails that
even someone with a chainsaw would?ve had troubles cutting through and then there was the fluffy balls of leftover pieces of sock wedged between the crevices of his sweaty toes, now that was the real icing on the cake for me, no way could I attempt this I thought. Then I had an idea. I went to the back of the plane and rinsed a wash cloth in warm
soapy water and returned for his dreaded foot massage but not before attempting to clean them first.

In return for my services Matt was kind enough to draw me two quick sketches on blank paper from his briefcase of my two favorite characters, Homer and Bart. I asked if he wouid make them out to my little brother
and dad, the true fans of the family not missing an episode during dinner over the past ten years or so. Next to the A-4 size drawing he was able to fit in the quote To my greatest fan from Matt Groening? and their names next to it. I knew they’d absolutely love it, and it was such a nice gesture his feet were no longer an issue as I laughed it off and even made a joke to the comedian about getting a pedicure before hitting beaches.

The flight was only short and we arrived in busy L.A within the hour, saying Good-Bye to Matt, who was a pleasure to meet.
