Jeffrey Epstein was once “gifted” three 12-year-old French girls as a birthday presents, court filings have reportedly revealed.
According to both the New York Post and the Daily Mail, Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre claimed in court filings that Jean-Luc Brunel, a French model scout and close friend of Epstein’s, flew three 12-year-old French girls to New York for Epstein’s birthday.
Giuffre, who has accused Epstein and his then-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell of keeping her a sex slave when she was 15 years old, reportedly said in the court documents that she met that girls, and that Epstein claimed the girls gave him massages and performed oral sex.
“Jeffrey bragged afterwards after he met them that they were 12-year-olds and flown over from France because they’re really poor over there, and their parents needed the money or whatever the case is and they were absolutely free to stay and flew out,” Giuffre reportedly said in the 2015 court papers, connected to a 2008 lawsuit.
According to the Daily Mail, it appears possible the girls were related.
“He went on to tell me how Brunel bought them in Paris from their parents, offering them the usual sums of money, visas, and modeling career prospects,” Giuffre reportedly said.
“Laughing the whole way through, Jeffrey thought it was absolutely brilliant how easily money seduced all walks of life, nothing or no one that couldn’t be bought.”
Epstein died following a reported suicide by hanging in his Manhattan jail cell on August 10, as he was awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. As CrimeOnline previously reported, Epstein’s lawyers have challenged the coroner’s ruling that Epstein died by suicide and are seeking video footage from the areas surrounding his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Facility.
