New Epstein victim, 22, reveals pedophile took her virginity by raping her aged 17

A 22-year-old Jeffrey Epstein rape survivor believes the warped financier was still abusing girls right up until his death – leaving behind a ‘second wave’ of younger victims too afraid to even tell their parents.

The former model, who DailyMail.com will refer to as Marie to protect her real identity, says she was raped and molested during two visits to Epstein’s ‘Harry Potter-style’ mansion in New York, in the summer of 2015.

Epstein became embroiled in lawsuits, media storms rape and eventually an FBI investigation in his final years but Marie fears that no amount of press scrutiny or law enforcement activity would have deterred the multi-millionaire from seeking out fresh victims.

‘I believe he was abusing young girls right up until the day he was arrested,’ she tells DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview.

‘There are likely to be multiple young victims out there who are still in their teens, perhaps still living with their parents and too ashamed and confused to speak out.

‘I know how it feels because I was one of them. I thought about suicide, I tried to cut my wrists. These girls need support before it’s too late. They need to know it’s OK to tell their stories.’

After his arrest last July 6 on federal sex trafficking charges filed in the Southern District of New York, and knowing Epstein was in custody, Marie says she felt comfortable enough to contact the FBI and the NYPD to share her story.

She is now among the more-than-100 victims applying for compensation from Epstein’s $630 million estate.

A 22-year-old Jeffrey Epstein survivor believes the warped financier was still abusing girls right up until his death – leaving behind a ‘second wave’ of younger victims too afraid to even tell their parents. New York, most recently in summer 2015. The former model, who DailyMail.com will refer to simply as Marie to disguise her real identity, says she was raped and molested during two visits to Epstein’s ‘Harry Potter-style’ mansion in Pictured: Marie in 2014 – the year she first met Epstein 

In her first visit to Epstein's home in 2014, Marie says Epstein began touching her inappropriately. When she recoiled in shock, he assured her it was routine for young models to do 'favors' for older men in the fashion industry. 'He said something in Latin, along the lines of quid pro quo. I asked what it meant and he said, you suck mine, I'll suck yours,' she said. 'He laughed like an evil wicked little laugh.' Pictured: Epstein outside his New York home in  2015

Though the precise age range of Epstein’s victims has not been disclosed by the various law firms representing them, Marie is believed to be one of the youngest women to come forward to claim compensation from his estate.

She asked to remain anonymous because she fears reprisals from Epstein’s powerful friends and accomplices even now, nearly a year after the 66-year-old hanged himself in a New York jail cell.

Marie was an aspiring 16-year-old model in the fall of 2014 when she snuck out to a bar in Manhattan to have drinks with older girls. She found herself talking to a glamorous 30-something named Madison.

‘Madison was everything I wanted to be, beautiful, confident, she knew everyone and everyone loved her,’ Marie remembers.

‘When she started talking to me, I was just moon eyed. ”Oh my gosh, I’m so happy she’s talking to me”.’

The conversation quickly turned to a rich older friend who could introduce Marie to fashion industry Illuminati, including Les Wexner, the founder of Victoria’s Secret.

Madison boasted that her wealthy pal could get Marie on the books at MC2, the modelling agency whose former CEO Jean Luc Brunel has faced allegations of sexual assault spanning three decades.

‘She said her friend Jeffrey was very rich and he sometimes takes a liking to people and he helps them,’ Marie recalls Madison telling her.

‘She didn’t mention money or sex. In hindsight it seems too good to be true. But her words were so alluring. It was like feeding candy to a baby.’

The next day Madison contacted Marie via Snapchat and asked her to meet Epstein for lunch at a VIP area of Manhattan restaurant La Esquina. 

The upmarket eatery just happened to be next door to the headquarters of top modelling firm, Supreme Management.

Marie remembers catching glimpses of older men and suspiciously young women who sipped champagne and talked among themselves in a lounge area as Epstein showed her around his $84 million townhouse

‘He was as charming as can be. He anticipated my questions, he knew exactly what to say,’ Marie recalls. ‘I was enchanted. It’s like he put a spell on me.’ 

She agreed to go back to Epstein’s Upper East Side home to finish up the conversation.

It was nearby to a casting call she had scheduled for later that day and Marie thought to herself ‘what would be the harm.’

When she reached the pedophile’s ‘hulking’ brownstone residence it seemed ‘to touch the sky’.

She was amazed one person could live alone in the sprawling 20,000 square-foot residence where Epstein hosted numerous famous figures over the years, including Britain’s Prince Andrew.

Inside, Marie was unnerved by the foreboding, Gothic decor, likening it to Grimmauld Place from the Harry Potter franchise.

‘He asked me how old I was, I told him I was 16 and he said I looked much younger, she recalls.

‘He then took me on a tour and I started to get scared thinking I wouldn’t be able to remember the way out.

‘In Harry Potter there’s this hallway with shriveled elves heads on it, he had a similar wall.

‘There are also these velvet curtains with ghouls and screaming creatures hiding behind. There was a dark room at the house that had similar velvet curtains.

‘I felt like every hallway was a maze and every room, a room of horrors.’

Marie remembers catching glimpses of older men and suspiciously young women who sipped champagne and talked among themselves in a lounge area as Epstein showed her around.

She recalls several creepy paintings, including a six-foot portrait of a woman she now recognizes as his alleged Madame, Ghislaine Maxwell, and a strange mural depicting Epstein behind barbed wire.

The same artwork has been described elsewhere as a bizarre depiction of the brief spell Epstein spent in prison after the 2008 ‘sweetheart deal’ which let him avoid federal charges in Florida by admitting one count of procuring an underage girl for prostitution.

It was inside the dimly lit room with red velvet curtains that Marie says Epstein began touching her inappropriately.

When she recoiled in shock, he assured her it was routine for young models to do ‘favors’ for older men in the fashion industry.

‘He said something in Latin, along the lines of quid pro quo. I asked what it meant and he said, ”you suck mine, I’ll suck yours”,’ she said. ‘He laughed like an evil wicked little laugh.’

Marie says her distress became so obvious that Epstein relented, letting her go but not bothering to show her out of his sprawling home.

She was confused and upset by what had happened but presumed it was something that young models had to do to get their big break.

So when Madison messaged Marie in summer 2015 to invite her to a modelling party in Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking District, she agreed to go.

‘No one seemed to care that I was underage,’ said Marie, who had just turned 17. ‘Madison was bringing me pink bellinis. She was on a mission to get me as drunk as she possibly could.’

Marie soon found herself being ushered towards a black SUV waiting to take her and several other girls back to the $84 million Epstein mansion, dubbed the House of Horrors.

This time Epstein led her to a dimly-lit massage room where he once more asked her age. ‘I thought you were 14,’ he replied, with an air of disappointment.

Marie says he ordered her to sit on a wooden, cushioned massage table before raping her.

‘I had my eyes shut. It felt like forever. It was extraordinarily painful,’ she recalls, her voice trembling.

‘I scratched him, I asked him to please stop. He didn’t stop until he was finally done. Then he just got up and left.

‘The weird thing is that I didn’t leave straight away. I went back downstairs to where the other girls were.

‘For some reason I kept expecting him to come and apologize, I was very young and naive, and of course he didn’t.

‘I felt broken. It was horrible, just horrible. I lost my virginity to him.’

Marie never saw Epstein again but did hear from Madison, who only ever messaged via Snapchat, which deletes texts immediately after they are read, several weeks later.

I had my eyes shut. It felt like forever. It was extraordinarily painful. I scratched him, I asked him to please stop. He didn’t stop until he was finally done. Then he just got up and left. 

This time the mysterious procurer invited her to Little St. James, one of Epstein’s two private islands in the Caribbean.

‘She said you’re going to have so much fun, it’s all beachfront, it’s amazing, there are other girls going, you will love them, they will be like your little sisters,’ Marie explains.

‘I’m like OK, that’s not normal. At my age I shouldn’t even be going.

‘I thought she was my friend, I wanted to warn her. I said please don’t hang out with him again Madison, he raped me on top of the table.

‘Within three seconds she basically saw my message and blocked me.’

Marie confided in a girlfriend her own age about one month after the rape, who urged her to go to the hospital for an examination.

But like so many others caught in Epstein’s evil orbit, she was afraid to go to the police out of fear he could hurt her or destroy her fledgling career.

It wasn’t until 2019 when another model contacted her to say the rich, silver-haired guy they had both met several years earlier in New York was in the news.

After his arrest last July 6 on federal sex trafficking charges filed in the Southern District of New York, Marie says she contacted the FBI and the NYPD to share her story.

She is now among the more-than-100 victims applying for compensation from Epstein’s $630 million estate.

But civil lawsuits give a broader timeframe for his perverted attacks and a January 2020 suit filed by prosecutors in the US Virgin Islands alleges that Epstein trafficked, raped and abused children on his private island as recently as 2019, the year he was arrested and later found dead last August 10

The predator was subject to two criminal indictments: one focusing largely on his activities in Palm Beach, Florida prior to 2008 when Epstein signed a controversial non-prosecution deal to avoid federal charges, the other citing crimes against girls in New York, Florida and other locations between 2002 and ‘at least in or about 2005.’

‘There’s no reason to believe he ever stopped,’ Marie adds. ‘Abuse was second nature to him. He didn’t stop the first time he got arrested in Florida, in fact he realized, oh hey, I can get away with this. I’m invincible, I’m untouchable.

‘Most of the victims we hear about are in their 30s and 40s. It’s been incredibly hard on them but many of them are married, they have spouses, they have pulled their lives together.

‘But for the second wave of victims, we are still young, it’s still very fresh and we are still figuring things out. I saw other girls around my age, potentially younger. I’m sure he did some variation of what he did to me, to them.

If nothing more, I want them to at least hear someone their age speaking out about this. 

‘What happened to all of them? Have they told anyone? I consider my dad to be very cool but imagine having to tell a very traditional father about that, there’s not going to be a lot of understanding.

‘If nothing more, I want them to at least hear someone their age speaking out about this.’

Today, Marie has given up on her dreams of becoming a model and says she suffers from PTSD, suicidal thoughts and panic attacks.

She’s been in therapy for the past year after finally finding the courage to tell her father about the rape.

‘I don’t know exactly what happened in Florida the first time around but I know that had Jeffrey Epstein been apprehended and properly punished all those years ago, so many young girls would have been saved,’ she adds.

‘The people behind the plea deal should feel an existential pain in their gut for what they’ve done.’

Sometimes Marie feels that Epstein’s death has ‘robbed her of justice’; other times she wonders if there are yet more chilling twists to come.

‘I don’t believe he killed himself. It sounds creepy and messed up but myself and some of the victims, we would like to actually see the body,’ she adds.

‘My worst nightmare is that he’s still alive and out there somewhere. Maybe one day I’m going to see a red dot come through my window and I’ll be shot in the head.

‘These rich a**holes are ruthless enough to kill off all the victims. All of us are on edge, even now.’ 

FBI quizzed Jeffrey Epstein survivor over his ties to President Bill Clinton and Britain’s Prince Andrew 

Epstein survivor ‘Marie’ says FBI investigators showed her photos of Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton and asked whether she had spotted either man at the dead pedophile’s Manhattan mansion, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.

The 22-year-old, whose real name we have agreed not to reveal, says the famous pair were among 20 or so different men whom agents brought up when she revealed her story to them last year.

Marie immediately recognized former President Clinton, 73, from the photos and was able to rule him out.

But she was less familiar with Prince Andrew, 60, whose friendship with the warped financier has come under intense scrutiny since Epstein’s suicide last August.

‘They asked who I may have seen and they asked specifically about him. I said, it’s possible, there were lots of wealthy rich guys hanging about,’ she told DailyMail.com. ‘But I really don’t remember meeting him.’

There’s no information to suggest the Queen’s son was visiting any of Epstein’s properties from 2014 to 2015 and Marie doesn’t remember hearing talk of a prince, nor meeting anyone with a British accent.

In an interview last November with the BBC Andrew said he stayed with Epstein in 2010 to tell him face to face that their friendship was over.

That was several years after Epstein was convicted and imprisoned in Florida for soliciting a minor.

But she was less familiar with Prince Andrew, 60, whose friendship with the warped financier has come under intense scrutiny since Epstein's suicide last August. The Duke of York continues to deny allegations that he had sex with Virginia Giuffre who says she was trafficked and pimped out to Epstein's powerful friends.

The Duke of York continues to deny allegations that he had sex with Virginia Giuffre – the Roberts – who says she was trafficked and pimped out to Epstein’s powerful friends.

Flight logs reveal Clinton flew 26 times on the dead pervert’s notorious private plane, dubbed the Lolita Express.

Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s alleged Madame, was also a guest at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding however the former President has insisted he knew nothing about any crimes or underage sex.

Marie says agents also showed her photos of possible female accomplices to see if she recognized Madison, the mysterious procurer who reeled her in for Epstein before she was brutally raped in 2016.

She did not recognize any of the women, however, and Madison’s identity remains a mystery.

‘Madison always used Snapchat and another app, Telegram. They both delete messages as soon as you read them leaving no evidence behind,’ Marie told DailyMail.com.

‘As far as I know the FBI has absolutely no idea who she is.’
