Two more women have filed suit against disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, charging that the convicted pedophile raped them when they were young teenagers.
The women, identified as Jane Doe 3 and Jane Doe 4, join a lawsuit already filed on behalf of Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2 by attorney Lisa Bloom.
Epstein died in August in a Manhattan jail while awaiting trial on federal trafficking charges. The medical examiner ruled his death a suicide.
CBS Miami reported that the lawsuit lists nine unnamed defendants who were allegedly Epstein’s employees or agents.
According to the lawsuit, Jane Doe 3 alleges that she met Epstein in 1990 when she was around 15-years-old and trying to launch a modeling career. Epstein told her he was a modeling photographer and invited her to a home for photographs. The lawsuit says he sexually assaulted her after taking photos of her in her underwear.
Jane Doe 4 says she was 13 when she met Epstein in Hilton Head, South Carolina, in 1984, when he rented a vacation home from her mother, according to the lawsuit. She says Epstein hired her as a babysitter, but there were no children when she arrived. She alleges Epstein gave her alcohol and drugs and raped her, a pattern he continued for several years. Additionally, the lawsuit says that Jane Doe 4 alleges that Epstein flew her to New York for “intimate gatherings with other prominent, wealthy men” in which she was “brutally and forcibly battered, assaulted and raped by these other men she met through Epstein.”
