ONE of the victims of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and his ailing pal Ghislaine Maxwell has revealed the “sex abuse factory” that was his Caribbean home.
in the new BBC show House of Maxwell Juliette Bryant opens up for the first time about being lured to his island retreat and sexually assaulted by the tycoon.
They were both close friends of Prince Andrewwhich was settled out of court this month Virginia Giuffrewho accused the king of sexually assaulting her when she was just 17 after being introduced by Ghislaine and Epstein.
South African Juliette says in the document: “I was ordered into his bedroom at least three times a day. At that point, there were even more girls. In that time I’ve seen at least 60 girls come and go.
“I was 20 when I was taken there, so I was lucky, I wasn’t as young as some of the other girls. It was like a factory, he ran a machine and Ghislaine Maxwell was the one who operated it.
“People ask why I went back. Nobody disobeyed Epstein. Before I was sent home, he took me to his office and told me a woman had accused him of rape and he drugged her apartment and put her in jail.
“Then he said he had my family’s name on a list so I just did what I was told because I was petrified of him, of who he was.
“I knew crossing it would be a very, very bad idea.”
Ghislaine now faces up to 40 years behind bars for sex trafficking Epstein, who she originally dated in the 1990s.
Then she became his go-to source to satisfy his hunger for young girls. But he was arrested in July 2019 and killed himself in his cell a few weeks later while awaiting trial.
Juliette said: “Ghislaine was leading the girls and she told us when to go to his bedroom. You couldn’t say no, there was just no way.
“You didn’t mean to make her angry, it would have been very scary to make her angry. No one has ever tried to fight back against them.
“His bedroom was pitch black and freezing cold. I just checked out of my body and just let it do what it wanted because I didn’t know what else to do.
“I was trying to escape from this room in my mind. I was just trying to pretend nothing happened. Things happened there that scared me so much I can’t even talk about it.
“He fed on fear, there was something about the energy of a girl who’s scared that he liked.
“The little chalet I was supposed to stay in when I got there had this very strange piece of art on the wall. It was a naked girl and there was a big walrus, it looked like the walrus was trying to rape her.
“It was a very disturbing image. I’ve never seen a picture like this before. He had a lot of weird stuff in his house, there were pictures of naked girls everywhere, and there were a lot of Ghislaine nudes too.
The documentary looks at Ghislaine’s family, beginning with media tycoon Robert, who died under mysterious circumstances in 1991 after falling off his luxury yacht.
It suggests that after his death she increasingly turned to Epstein, whom she met on frequent trips to New York to help with the American branch of her father’s business empire.
Ghislaine would lead the girls and she would tell us when to go to his bedroom. You couldn’t say no, there was just no way. You didn’t mean to make her angry, it would have been very scary to make her angry. No one has ever tried to fight back against them.
Juliette said: “When I first met Ghislaine I was told she was Epstein’s girlfriend. But the thing is, I’ve never seen them hold hands or kiss or even hug to be honest.
“I’ve never seen her get that close, so it definitely wasn’t a romantic relationship.”
Ghislaine was deeply indebted to him and helped lure young girls to his homes with promises of money or help with their careers.
Juliette recalls, “I was just a young girl with hopes and dreams, and I thought I could really do something with my life. So I started modeling, I thought I might give it a try.
“One day this beautiful American model, Naja Hill, came up to me and asked me if I was a model. I told her I just started modeling and then she said her boyfriend who owned Victoria’s Secret was here and if I would like to meet him because he could help me with my modeling career.
“So I was like, ‘Oh my god, all my dreams are coming true,’ I just couldn’t believe it. What an opportunity. So we went to show Jeffrey my portfolio.
“I went into the hotel room, sat across from him, gave him my model book and he looked through it. He said, “Wow, you have the most amazing body I’ve ever seen in my life.”
“Then he said, ‘Right, we really want to get you over from South Africa to New York.’ They said they paid for my ticket and got me a visa. I thought it was going to be the most amazing opportunity of my life.
“But then his office called and said, ‘Pack your bags, we’re going to the Caribbean.’ I thought it was for a photo shoot. So I immediately said yes.
“His island was the most beautiful place you have ever seen. The sea there is absolutely exquisite, the turquoise sea.”
When I first met Ghislaine, I was told she was Epstein’s girlfriend. But the thing is, I’ve never seen them hold hands or kiss or even hug to be honest.
But things quickly turned ugly when other girls arrived on the island — and she realized the true purpose of her invitation.
Juliette added: “Jeffrey really liked watching movies and the next day it was brought to another girl. We were watching a movie and this other girl was there and she started having sex with him while I was sitting next to him.
“I was absolutely petrified because I was so young and had never seen anything like it. So I ran out of the room crying I just didn’t know what to do. There was no hope of escape.
“You know, I was in a foreign country with no cell phone, money or means of communication. That’s when I realized I was completely trapped and couldn’t do anything.”
She added: “I never felt good after that. Everything just fell apart. It’s very difficult to understand. I’m still trying to put everything together.
“I just wanted to be quiet and live my life and forget everything, but then I can’t forget it. I’m tired of being ashamed, I want to speak for the people who can’t speak anymore.”
Discussing the guilty verdict on Ghislaine’s sex trafficking charge, she said: “I never thought it would happen. These people got away with what they got away with for many years.
“You have to keep them away so they can’t harm other people. People are waking up to the truth.”
Prince Andrew has consistently denied any allegations of misconduct leveled against him.
- House of Maxwell begins Monday April 4 at 9pm on BBC2.
