Epstein got three 12-year-old French girls as surprise birthday gift from model scout Jean-Luc Brunel
Sexual abuse victim Virginia Giuffre said in her lawsuit that Epstein described to her how the girls massaged him and performed oral sex on him.
Disturbing details about Jeffrey Epstein's life continued to emerge, with recently released court documents stating that the multimillionaire financier had three 12-year-old girls flown in from France as a birthday present.
The allegations were revealed in 2015 court papers, which had been filed as a part of a 2008 civil lawsuit by two of the 66-year-old's accusers who had argued that the plea deal given to him following his conviction on charges of soliciting a prostitute and procuring an underage girl for prostitution violated the federal Crime Victims' Rights Act.
Epstein had served just 13 months in prison - of which he could spend six out of seven days a week outside jail on a work permit - and the lawsuit, filed against the Miami US Attorney’s Office that struck the deal, detailed quite a few of the financier's indiscretions.
The accusations of Epstein sleeping with the three 12-year-old girls came from Virginia Giuffre, who has also claimed that the 66-year-old and his 'highest-ranking employee' Ghislaine Maxwell coerced her into being a sex slave when she was 15.
Giuffre said Epstein had flown the prepubescent girls, believed to be siblings, from France and that they were "a surprise birthday gift from one of his friends," according to the Daily Mail.
That friend was named to be Jean-Luc Brunel, a model scout on who Epstein had invested $1 million to help launch modeling firm MC2 in return for a "supply of girls on tap."
"Jeffrey bragged afterward 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 stated in the lawsuit.
She said Epstein described to her how the girls massaged him and performed oral sex on him and that "Brunel bought them in Paris from their parents, offering them the usual sums of money, visas, and modeling career prospects."
"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," she said.
In the same lawsuit, Epstein and Brunel were also accused of flying in and recruiting underage girls from South America and Eastern Europe to have sex with him.
"Jeffrey and Brunel would charge them for rent, forcing them to work for them selling their bodies for money, nude pictures, and even pornography," she alleged. "These were what seemed like really nice people with not so nice intentions setting an impression of how the dignified wealth play and behind closed doors they had as much civilized manners as a barbaric chimpanzee in heat."
The case is still ongoing and federal Judge Kenneth Mara ruled recently that Florida federal prosecutors acted illegally when they failed to inform Epstein's victims of the sweetheart plea deal he was offered.
Epstein was arrested last month on federal charges of sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York and was found dead of an apparent suicide in his jail cell at Manhattan's Metropolitan Correctional Center on August 10.
