- Claims made by a butler who worked for a hedge fund billionaire and his wife
- He alleged in court documents that he found the girl ‘quivering’ in the kitchen
- Then said she went on to make claims about her treatment on Epstein’s island
Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘pimp’ Ghislaine Maxwell threatened a 15-year-old Swedish girl held hostage on his private island when she refused to have sex, according to bombshell claims made in US court documents.
Rinaldo Rizzo, a butler who worked for hedge fund billionaire Glenn Dubin and his wife, Eva Andersson-Dubin, said in filings for an unrelated case that Epstein and Maxwell brought the teenager with them when they visited his employers in New York.
He said he found the girl crying in the kitchen, and heard her describe her alleged treatment at the hands of Maxwell and her assistant, Sarah Kellen, when she was being held at Epstein’s property in the US Virgin Islands.
Mr Rizzo claimed the girl told him that Maxwell and Kellen had demanded sex from her and taken away her passport and threatened her when she refused.
According to Mr Rizzo, he introduced himself and his wife to the teenager after Andersson-Dubin stepped out of the kitchen for a few moments.
He said the girl sat in a stool next to a kitchen counter in the Dubins’ home. She was ‘distraught and shaking…literally quivering’.
He continued in the testimony: ‘She proceeded to tell my wife and I… “I was on the island and there was Ghislaine, and there was Sarah,” and she said, “They asked me for sex. I said no”.’
