Simon John Charles Le Bon is an English musician, singer, songwriter, and model. He is best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the band Duran Duran.

Duran Duran

Le Bon worked on a kibbutz in the Negev desert in Israel in 1978, and then returned to England to study drama at the University of Birmingham.

Duran Duran was formed in Birmingham, England in 1978, and Le Bon joined the fledgling band in 1980.[1] They were very popular in the 1980s, and since then, it has sold more than 100 million records.[2]

Jeffery Epstein's black book

He and his wife, the former model Yasmin Le Bon, are mentioned in Jeffrey Epstein's black book. He wrote on Twitter: "I never met Epstein; I know of at least two other people who's nos. are in his book, but never met him. I've also heard that he collected ppl's contact details. Note that Mrs Le Bon's christian name is wrong."[3]

In that case, it is not clear how Epstein got their number. It is also not clear if the couple ever met Ghislaine Maxwell.

Sexual assault

In 2018, Shereen Hariri alleged that the Duran Duran singer groped her while signing autographs at the Los Angeles record store where she worked. She accused Le Bon of grabbing and “massaging” her “right butt cheek” and “making his way down my butt to my genitals”. ” She clarified that she was not seeking compensation – the US statute of limitations for assault is two years – but an apology[4]. Le Bon denied Hariri’s claims in a post on Duran Duran’s official Facebook page.[5]

Le Bon’s assistant, Katy Krassner, said she was at the record store event and supported Le Bon’s denial in a comment posted beneath his statement. “I can tell you that what he is being accused of DID NOT happen. Simon was never out of my sight that entire day".[4]
