The entire world is mourning the tragic death of fashion designer Virgil Abloh.
Virgil was the founder of Off-White and also the artistic director of Louis Vuitton. He passed away last week from cancer. He was 41 years old. Since 2019, he has been privately battling a rare form of cancer called cardiac angiosarcoma.
His family wrote on Instagram that they are devastated to announce the passing of their beloved Virgil Aboh. He was a dedicated father, loyal husband, son, brother, and friend.
After Virgil Abloh’s death, many accusations arose against him. It was said that he was in the ongoing trial of Ghislaine Maxwell. As some documents stated that he was her client. Let’s talk about this in detail later in the article.
The documents state that Abloh was one of Ghislaine Maxwell’s suspects. Fans saw the alleged documents on Twitter. He showed that Virgil was number 28 on Ghislaine Maxwell’s list of suspects.
The 59-year-old British socialist remains on trial. He was accused of caring for young girls who were convicted of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
On November 29, 2021, he was in court in New York to begin his trial. This was just a day after Virgil’s death was announced.
A screenshot purporting to be of a New York Southern District Court document went viral on Twitter. He claims that Virgil is also a “suspect” of Ghislaine Maxwell.
In judicial acts, a “suspect” is one who is accused of committing a crime. Therefore, the document on Twitter claims that he is Ghislaine’s co-conspirator.
Kanye West, The Walt Disney Company, Def Jam Recordings and Beyonce are some of the other suspected “suspects” on the list.
Virgil Wasn’t the Real Suspect in Ghislaine Maxwell’s Trial
The document that is all over Twitter has been confirmed to be fake. Confirming that Virgil, as well as all the other people on the list, are not the suspects in Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial.
It was all misinformation that attracted a lot of attention on social media. This all happened after an internet user Photoshopped the title of the original court document to make it look alarmingly real.
If you type the case number listed at the top of the document that is going viral on Twitter “Case 1:20-cv-07102-UA” into Google, you will realize that it is actually a document for a case called “ Latham et al v. The 1953 Trust et al“. This trial took place in August 2020. It lists all 38 defendants in the photo, but it has nothing to do with the Ghislaine Maxwell trial at all. She is surprisingly related to Jeffrey Epstein.
The case “Latham et al v. The 1953 Trust et al” was brought in respect of Jeffrey Epstein’s 1953 trust, which he established and placed all of his properties. This was more than $577 million, before his death.
The documents reveal that the course dissolved the civil case against 38 people. This list included high profile celebrities such as ‘shallow’ and is now closed.
The news that floods Twitter is false
When the screenshot went viral on Twitter, many people thought that Virgil Abloh was actually a suspect in the Ghislaine Maxwell case. Everyone was very shocked by the information that is false.
One of the users wrote that he is sorry and hates being like this. But he finds it very strange that he suspects Virgil in the Ghislaine Maxwell case and then dies of a rare disease.
Another user added that he was freaking out thinking Virgil died shortly after he was named to Ghislaine Maxwell’s list from a rare type of cancer.
A third user said that Virgil Abloh died today. Virgil was also named a suspect in the continuing trial of Ghislaine Maxwell. The user sarcastically said that he was not very strange.
