Newly unsealed portions of a lawsuit have revealed former JP Morgan chief executive Jes Staley making suggestive references to Disney princesses in emails sent to notorious financier Jeffrey Epstein.

In an email sent to Epstein in July of 2010, Staley wrote, "Maybe they’re tracking u? That was fun. Say hi to Snow White," according to court documents. 

Epstein responded, "[W]hat character would you like next?" 

Staley stated, "Beauty and the Beast," to which Epstein responded, "well one side is available." 

The correspondence was released as part of a lawsuit the Virgin Islands government filed accusing JP Morgan Chase of "complicity" in Epstein’s crimes. 

Staley exchanged around 1,200 emails with Epstein between 2008 and 2012, all coming from his JP Morgan account.

Staley left JP Morgan to join Barclays as CEO, but stepped down from his position after investigations into his relationship with Epstein.

One of those emails, the Virgin Islands claims, was sent in 2009 from Epstein’s Little St. James, while Epstein was imprisoned in Florida.

"So when all hell breaks lo[o]se, and the world is crumbling, I will come here, and be at peace. Presently, I’m in the hot tub with a glass of white wine. This is an amazing place. Truly amazing. Next time, we’re here together. I owe you much. And I deeply appreciate our friendship. I have few so profound," the email from November 1, 2009 read.

The suit alleged that Staley replied a month later saying, "I realize the danger in sending this email. But it was great to be able, today, to give you, in New York City, a long heartfelt, hug," and that December, Epstein allegedly sent Staley a photograph of a young girl, whose image was redacted in the suit.
