Who is Priscilla Doe? Epstein sex ring survivor claims HBRK Associates blackmailed victims
Doe provides further insight into Jeffery Epstein in an updated lawsuit filed in early June, claims dubbed 'completely inaccurate'
A survivor of Jeffery Epstein's sex ring has provided further insight into the sex racket and the corporate entity known as HBRK Associates. Priscilla Doe, a ballet dancer from New York has revealed the information in an updated lawsuit she filed in early June.
Doe is one of the multiple accusers to file lawsuits against Epstein's estate following his death in August 2019. In late May, the two guards that fell asleep the night Epstein died reached a no-jail plea deal. Doe is also one of the few victims to reject compensation from the Epstein Victims’ Compensation Program. That program has come under the scanner in March, after it was revealed many victims are still to get their money, reportedly because Epstein's brother Mark was attempting to keep as much of it as possible.
Along with the mysteries of the compensation program, there's still a lot we don't know about Epstein and the role of the mysterious HBRK Associates firm. It’s unclear which HBRK employees the lawsuit is referring to, but one person on Twitter noted the firm’s title seems to be derived from the initials of Epstein accountants Harry Beller and Richard Kahn. Both men are signatories on HBRK retirement plan documents, public records show. Doe's updated lawsuit does provide some clarity on that, indicating that the company knew a lot about Epstein's activities.
Who is Priscilla Doe?
What we know about Doe is limited to the court documents she has filed. It is important to note that her actual name isn't Priscilla Doe, that's the pseudonym used to protect her identity. Doe reportedly worked as a ballet dancer in New York. She worked menial jobs to support her training at Step on Broadway and the Joffrey Ballet. In 2006, when she was 22, Doe met Epstein while she was about to begin rehearsals for 'The Nutcracker' at Eglevsky Ballet School. According to her complaint, Doe was recruited to meet Epstein by another female, who was already a part of his sex ring.
Doe then became a victim of Epstein's sex trafficking and he reportedly controlled every aspect of her life. She alleges that Epstein "took her virginity against her will and wishes." She was also provided with an apartment on the Upper East side of Manhattan, which she claims allowed Epstein to monitor her every move. Back in 2019, Doe was one of the several women to testify in court. She revealed at the time that she was struggling financially and wanted to support her mother. So when she was offered the opportunity to provide massages, she took it.
In her first filing, Doe alleged that she was trained by Ghislaine Maxwell on how to sexually service Epstein and the “proper way to give a blow job." She also adds that her passport was confiscated during that trip to Epstein's Virgin Islands compound, to prevent her from leaving. She alleges that Epstein controlled her from 2006 to 2012, where she was forced to perform sexual acts in multiple locations. In 2011, Epstein reportedly paid for her to attend a massage school.
Doe's latest allegations rope in HBRK
Doe's original complaint was filed in 2019 and in early June she has amended that filing to include new information. She now added that HBRK was aware of Epstein's abuse, and even participated in it by coaxing women into marriages, putting their names on falsified documents and maintaining a dossier on them. She also alleges that she was "loaned" out to Epstein's friends, one of whom said "that he had Epstein’s permission to do what he wanted to her." “HBRK employees made it impossible for these victims to escape from the sex trafficking operation,” Doe’s amended lawsuit states. “At times, HBRK even operated out of the apartments located at 301 East 66th Street, where Epstein persuaded a number of his victims to reside under his control.”
An attorney for Epstein's estate has hit back at those allegations, in a reply to The Daily Beast. The attorney said, "The new allegations against Mr. Kahn and HBRK are completely inaccurate. Neither Mr. Kahn nor anyone else at HBRK forced, coerced or threatened anyone in any fashion, at any time." Kahn was Epstein’s longtime accountant, in whose name the firm was once registered.
Doe further alleges that HBRK employees helped to facilitate Epstein’s crimes, blackmailed them, including sending warning emails of Epstein's power. They also "maintained damaging files on many of the young female victims" to prevent them from cooperating with police or in civil lawsuits against Epstein and his trafficking organization, she claims. "Employees of HBRK knew or should have known that Jeffrey Epstein was a serial sexual abuser of young girls," Doe's filing says. "Those individuals played necessary roles in facilitating Epstein’s sexual abuse to the point that much of it would have been impossible but for the services provided by Defendant HBRK."
Further allegations say HBRK "stored large amounts of cash in its offices to ensure that there were funds available to pay and silence victims of Epstein at any given time." Doe's complaints also link Maxwell, Woody Allen, Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and French modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel. All the allegations were part of a lawsuit filed by Doe in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. According to documents, she is demanding a trial by jury and seeking "compensatory and general damages, attorney’s fees, and punitive damages."
