Personal Life Edit

Throughout Epstein's life he was known to be kind and caring to his family, friends of his family, and business colleagues. When Lennon married Cynthia Powell, on 23 August 1962, Epstein attended the wedding as the best man and paid for their celebration lunch afterwards. During Cynthia's pregnancy, Epstein paid for a private room in a hospital and offered the Lennons the sole use of his flat on Falkner Street when they needed somewhere to live. He also agreed to be the godfather to Lennon's son Julian.[1]

Sexual orientation Edit

Epstein's homosexuality was not publicly known until years after his death, although it had been an open secret among his friends and business associates. McCartney said that when Epstein started to manage The Beatles, they knew that Epstein was homosexual, but did not care, because Epstein encouraged them professionally and offered them access to previously off-limits social circles. Although Lennon often made sarcastic comments about Epstein's homosexuality to friends and to Epstein personally, nobody outside their closed circle was allowed to comment on it. Ian Sharp, one of Lennon's art school friends, once made a sarcastic remark about Epstein, saying, "Which one of you [The Beatles] does he fancy?" Sharp was sent a letter by Epstein's office within 48 hours that demanded a complete apology.[2]

Drug use Edit

Epstein was the one who influenced The Beatles to use drugs. He in 1967, died of drug overdose. He smoked too much drugs because when The Beatles became more established, he became more of a follower than a leader.

Gambling Edit

Epstein often spends the whole night in Perugia Way casino gambling. He would often lose thousands of pounds, so when he ate expensive meals, they would not offer him a bill because they know that he would often lose thousands of pounds in they're casino.
