Teresa Helm, 42, said she spent a night at the East 66th Street apartment while abused by the wealthy pedophile in 2002 when she was 22, which a lawsuit has heard , was where he would babysit girls as young as 13.

Helm said she was greeted with a gift basket including cookies and fresh fruit, which made her feel “special”.

She said: ‘I remember the apartment clearly. It was relatively small and there was Dannon yogurt in the fridge and a basket of fruit and cookies on the counter.

Helm noted that she assumed she would be staying in a hotel, rather than what was listed in Epstein’s famous black book under “apartments for models”.

The apartment is largely owned by Epstein’s brother, Mark, through his company, Ossa Properties.

She added: “I remember feeling quite special – thinking there was this lovely gift basket of fruit and cookies. It was part of the manipulation – “here we take care of you, we provide you”. It’s all part of the grooming process.’

Helm told the Mirror that “they’ve been bringing girls there all the way through their traffic.” They had to put the girls up somewhere.

She said she met Epstein and his “right hand man” Ghislaine Maxwell before heading to the flat.

The victim traveled across the country to New York to meet with Maxwell about a job as a “private massage therapist.”

She claimed she was asked to give Maxwell a massage and the socialite told her that upon meeting Epstein: “Make sure you give Jeffrey what he wants because Jeffrey always gets what he wants. wanna.” ‘

Helm then says she went to Epstein’s house, which she described as resembling a castle, where she was lured into his office and sexually assaulted.

She recalls: “I was let in and Jeffrey said to follow him into his office. We walked into this room and then he asked me for a foot massage and put his foot on my leg. I started giving him a foot massage and he started pushing his foot closer and closer to me to the point where his foot was literally pressing against my body.

Epstein then grabbed Helm from behind as she tried to pull away, grabbed her chin and said, “I know I can always trust a woman who shows her gums when she smiles.”

She then claims she froze and was assaulted by Epstein in the hallway, adding, “Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.”

Helm left after one night and returned home the next day, but mentioned that she had gone to the airport with another “young girl” whom she suspects was also the victim.

She was one of a group of Epstein victims who accepted part of a compensation fund in return for the mistrial of his lawsuit against his estate.

Maxwell, now 60, was convicted of recruiting and trafficking underage girls for the disgraced financier between 1994 and 1997.

She was sentenced to 20 years in prison after telling court that meeting Jeffrey Epstein was the “biggest regret of my life” and apologizing to her victims “for the pain you felt”.

During Maxwell’s trial, his victims described how they would go up to the bathroom after entering the house and engage in sexualized massages with Epstein on a green folding massage table.

After the sentencing, Maxwell’s lawyer, Bobbi Sternheim, said outside the courthouse: ‘Our client Ghislaine Maxwell was vilified, pilloried and left with little room for her to be treated fairly. Because even before entering this courthouse, she was judged and condemned by the court of public opinion.

Four women testified against Maxwell during his week-long trial: a victim known as “Jane”, Annie Farmer, Kate and another woman called Carolyn.

For three weeks, the jury heard how Maxwell “served” underage girls for Epstein and relished her role as “lady of the house” at her Palm Beach, Florida mansion.

Between 1994 and 2004, Maxwell was Epstein’s “right hand man” and paid $200 for sexualized massages or even participated in the abuse.

The victims, some as young as 14, received a similar amount of money if they brought friends to Epstein, the jury heard.

The true number of Epstein’s victims may never be known, but the fund set up to compensate them has paid out $121 million to 150 women around the world.

Most of the victim impact statements were released before sentencing and they were scathing in their condemnation of Maxwell.

Epstein was found in cardiac arrest, after hanging himself, shortly before 7 a.m. on August 10, 2019, at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in lower Manhattan.
