L Brands (NYSE:LB) founder and longtime CEO Leslie Wexner tells employees he was not aware of alleged criminal behavior by his former money manager Jeffrey Epstein, WSJ reports.

Wexner reportedly said in a memo that he severed all ties with Epstein nearly 12 years ago and wrote "I would not have continued to work with any individual capable of such egregious, sickening behavior as has been reported about him."
