JEFFREY Epstein kept “meticulously detailed” diaries of his friendships which could come back to haunt his powerful pals, reports claim.
A source has since claimed Epstein forged relationships with the rich and famous because it brought him “protection”.
Former financier Epstein, 66, is believed to have killed himself in jail – days after being taken off suicide watch.
His death came hours after a Manhattan court released a 1,200-page dossier detailing lurid abuse allegations against him.
The explosive papers also named some of the world’s elite leaders and politicians.
They were unsealed in a legal tangle between Brit socialite Ghislaine Maxwell — Epstein’s ex-lover — and Virginia Giuffre.
Ms Giuffre has alleged that she was procured by “madame” Maxwell, 57, the daughter of disgraced tycoon Robert Maxwell, as a teenage “sex slave” for Epstein.
In previous court claims, she alleged she had sex Prince Andrew when she was a teen.
“He kept a diary in meticulous detail in case he ever needed it,” the insider told the Mirror.

“They should hold their breath for a long time to come. It ain’t over.” – READ MORE
