2 women sue Epstein estate, saying he abused them as adults
NEW YORK (AP) — Two more women have sued Jeffrey Epstein’s estate, saying he sexually abused them.
The suit was filed Thursday in a federal court in New York.
The women say they were working as hostesses at a popular Manhattan restaurant in 2004 when they were recruited to give Epstein massages.
One was 18 at the time. The other was 20.
The lawsuit says an unidentified female recruiter offered the hostesses hundreds of dollars to provide a massage to Epstein, saying he “liked young, pretty girls to massage him.”
The lawsuit says that the recruiter promised no unwanted touching but that Epstein groped them anyway.
One plaintiff now lives in Japan, the other in Baltimore.
They seek $100 million in damages, citing depression, anxiety, anger, flashbacks and nightmares.
Epstein died in jail Aug. 10.
