Cameron Diaz is amongst the A-list celebs alleged to have had ties to deceased and disgraced sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in newly unsealed court documents.
However, the movie star’s publicist adamantly denies that their client had any connection to the convicted pedophile.
“Cameron never met Jeffrey Epstein, nor was she ever in the same place as him or had any association with him whatsoever, regardless of the fact he may or may not have mentioned her name or implied that he knew her,” Diaz’s rep tells Page Six Friday.
Court documents obtained by Page Six show that Johanna Sjoberg, one of Epstein’s accusers, claimed in a deposition that the financier bragged about knowing big stars like Diaz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bruce Willis and others.
However, the alleged victim also testified that she had not personally met any of the names she mentioned.
“When I spoke about them, it was when I was massaging him, and he would get off — he would be on the phone a lot at the time, and one time he said, ‘Oh, that was Leonardo, or, That was Cate Blanchett, or Bruce Willis.’ That kind of thing,” she said, according to a transcript.
When asked if Epstein was “name-dropping” at the time, Sjoberg, now 42, confirmed, “yes,” and when she was later asked if she met Diaz, now 51, she replied, “No.”
Although it does not appear that the “There’s Something About Mary” star had any sort of relationship with Epstein, many others named in the court documents did indeed strike up a friendship with him.
Prince Andrew has been accused of sexually assaulting some of the young women that Epstein allegedly sex-trafficked, including Sjoberg.
The Maine-native claimed in her deposition that the disgraced royal touched her breast while they were posing for a photo on a couch at Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse in 2001.

Former President Bill Clinton’s name appeared multiple times in the documents, and although there is photographic evidence of his close bond with Epstein, he’s denied having knowledge of his crimes.
The scandalous court documents have been unsealed due to an order Manhattan federal Judge Loretta Preska issued as part of accuser Virginia Guiffre’s since-settled defamation lawsuit against Epstein’s alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell. Even more court records are expected to drop in the coming days.
Epstein was found dead of apparent suicide in prison in 2019, as he faced up to 45 years in prison for sex trafficking. He was 66 and had pleaded not guilty.
Maxwell, 62, meanwhile, was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2022 her role in helping her rich-and-powerful pedophile pal abuse young girls.
She was convicted on five of six counts, including sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, but is planning an appeal and has hired Harvey Weinstein’s appeal lawyers to oversee her case.
