Ghislaine Maxwell 'gagged, restrained and raped me' accuser claims

A former fashion student has come forward to detail how she was raped by late billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and the real monster Ghislaine Maxwell.

Samantha 48-year-old accuser, simply known by the pseudonym, was 21 at the time of her harrowing experience with Epstein and Maxwell when she was recruited to massage Epstein by a fellow fashion design student.

In an emotional interview, Samantha, who says she is willing to share her story with authorities, said: They stole my whole life. I had a bright future ahead of me and they took that from me.

The last time I saw them, Maxwell got a hold of me, restrained my arms behind my back and put a ball gag in my mouth, and then raped me with a sex toy, Samantha told The Sun.

Then she called Epstein in. And he joined in. I was terrified, couldn’t do anything to stop them.

It was the most traumatic experience but I feel she was the monster, she was the one behind it all.

When they were done, when it was finally over, I walked out of that door a very different person than what I walked in, I was in shock.

Samantha was born in Manhattan, New York, and lived between the city and Connecticut until she joined Parsons School of Design, where she studied in both Paris and New York.

She said she was just 21 when a friend from her school invited her to come to a rich guy’s house because he was interested in her design work.

He apparently was interested in having some design work done on his house and he also wanted good looking girls to give him a massage.

She said I would earn some money I think it was $300/400 so I just thought Why not?

When I went, I remember almost passing the house because I was looking for one house and it seems like it takes up the whole block.

The girl answered and took me upstairs to the massage room.

That’s when I met Epstein and he disrobed and I started giving him a massage and he was pleasant.

He was talking to me about my school and design stuff. And then asked if I was interested in doing some work in his house.

Then he flipped over and he wasn’t approaching me in a sexual way but towards the end he started touching himself, pleasuring himself.

Samantha said she went back to massage Epstein about another 3 or 4 times throughout the end of 1993 and the beginning of 1994.

Each time she would massage him, he would masturbate and she would get paid around $300/400.

He also asked her if she knew any other girls who would like to massage him.

On around the fourth or fifth visit, she met Maxwell for the first time, who she claims then took her out to procure other girls for Epstein.

Samantha says – she found a fellow fashion student at her school who agreed to come and do a massage.

She was 19 but I told her to say she was 16. She went to meet them but I didn’t speak to her after so I didn’t know how it went, Samantha said.

Soon after I got a call to go to Epstein’s and Maxwell answered that time and took me to the massage room, which is where she started yelling at me and screaming, You dirty, filthy whore, lying whore.

She was mad at me because of telling the other girl to lie about her age.

And the next thing I knew she had a ball gag in my mouth, my hands around my back and she was raping me with a sex toy.

She had taken my clothes off. It all happened so fast, I was stunned.

She was using the sex toy on me and on herself then she called in Epstein and he joined in.

It was traumatizing. After they were finished I grabbed my clothes.

I remember her giving me $300 and saying, Don’t think about going to the authorities because you won’t be alive to see your day in court or something like that.

Samantha says she was too scared to go to the police. She also found out through students at her school that the girl she had recruited for Epstein had also been sexually assaulted during her visit and felt consumed with guilt”.

Samantha left New York and moved to Los Angeles, where she became a sex worker.

Currently, Ghislaine Maxwell is being held at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center awaiting trial in July on sex trafficking charges.
