The Island Boys say they are in no way affiliated with Jeffrey Epstein.

A recent viral photo of Jeffrey Epstein posing alongside various young boys on a beach has stirred up some rumors. Rumors that two of the children pictured were twin musicians the Island Boys began to circulate on social media. The Island Boys responded, telling TMZ that the rumors are false. Flyysoulja, one of the Island Boys, says that him and his brother Kodiyakredd are cuban, while the boys in the photograph appear to be white. He went on to claim that the photo doesn't appear to be taken in Florida, where he says he and his twin didn't leave until they turned 18. Flyysoulja went on to point out that him and Kodiyakredd looked identical as children, while the boys rumored to be them look drastically different.

The Island Boys responded to another rumor in the mix earlier today, that Jeffrey Epstein is actually their father. They claim the rumor is absolutely false, going on to reveal that their real father died of a heart attack. The duo insists that they have no affiliation with Jeffrey Epstein, or his island.

The Island Boys Say They Have Nothing To Do With Epstein

Known for their viral track "I'm an Island Boy," the twins released an official version of the tune in 2021. Cardi B shared her own version of the song with her fans. "SURPRISE!!!!!!" She joked with followers, saying, "I’m dropping a song on Monday on SoundCloud!!!" She called the parody "Nothing serious just something special for BARDIGANG."

Kodiyakredd, born Franky Venegas, was arrested at an Airbnb for alleged domestic battery earlier this month. The arrest followed the artist's ex-girlfriend Amina Sobhi claiming he hit and pushed her into a pool after she threatened to break up with him. Police said that Sobhi appeared to have various bruises when they spoke to her at a hospital following the alleged assault. Venegas is now ordered to have zero contact with his ex following the incident.
