Billionaire Leon Black accuses his former partner at Apollo of launching a ‘coup’ against him using ties to Epstein
Billionaire Leon Black has for months claimed that a mysterious financier is engaged in a plot to destroy him. Now, the private-equity titan has accused his former partner and Apollo co-founder Josh Harris of being behind a “malicious” campaign to take him down. The allegation is laid out in a new court filing by Black’s legal team, as he fights civil claims from a former Russian model, Guzel Ganieva. In a countersuit, Black said unidentified public relations specialists and an unnamed funder were supporting her litigation in a scheme to destroy his reputation.
