Another trove of documents unsealed this week from Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s lawsuit against Jeffrey Epstein procurer Ghislaine Maxwell reveals testimony that Maxwell and her assistant threatened a 15-year-od girl when she refused to have sex.
The testimony comes from Rinaldo Rizzo, a butler for Epstein pals Glenn Dubin and his wife, Eva Andersson-Dubin, who said he met the Swedish teen when Maxwell and Epstein brought her along on a visit to the Dubins in New York, the Daily Mail reported.
Rizzo testified that he found the girl crying in the kitchen and asked her what was wrong. She told him she’d been held at Epstein’s U.S. Virgin Islands property, essentially as a prisoner when Maxwell and Sarah Kellen demanded sex, then took her passport and phone and threatened her when she said no.
“And at that point, she said she was threatened,” Rizzo testified. “And I said, ‘Threatened?’ She says, ‘Yes. I was threatened by Ghislaine, not to discuss this.'”
Giuffre’s lawsuit against Maxwell was settled out of court in 2017, but 2,000 pages of documents were released on Friday.
Giuffre accused Glenn Dubin of participating in Epstein’s sex trafficking ring, allegations the Dubins denied.
“Glenn and Eva Dubin are outraged by the allegations against them in the unsealed court records and categorically reject them,” they said in a statement provided to the Daily Mail.
Epstein died in jail in August while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. The medical examiner ruled his death a suicide.
