Epstein Was 'Gifted' Three 12-Year-Olds to Abuse as Birthday Present, Docs Claim
Next Top Model scout Jean-Luc Brunel flew poor triplet children in from France as 'gift'
Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was given three 12-year-old sisters as a "gift" for his birthday so he sexually abuse them, according to newly unsealed court documents.
Epstein was allegedly given the young children as "birthday present" by Next Top Model scout Jean-Luc Brunel, who reportedly flew the poor triplet children in from France.
These latest allegations were made by Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who says she was recruited as a "sex slave" by the Clinton-linked financier and his girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell when she was 15 in 1999.
The newly revealed accusations add to the list of allegations made by Giuffre, then Virginia Roberts, who claims she was "lent out" for sex to Epstein's powerful friends, including Britain's Prince Andrew.
Among other allegations made by Giuffre, the former sex slave claims she saw Bill Clinton on Epstein's private island, also known as "Pedophile Island" - a claim the former president has always denied.
The newly emerged allegations from Giuffre were made in a civil suit filed by the Miami US attorney's office in 2015.
The lawsuit sought to overturn the Epstein's 2008 sweetheart plea bargain, under which he served just 13 months in prison after pleading guilty to having sex with a minor.
According to the Daily Mail, Giuffre says that three 12-year-old French girls, believed to be sisters, were a gift from Epstein's longtime acquaintance and frequent guest Jean-Luc Brunel.
"Jeffrey bragged after he met them that they were 12-year-olds and flown over from France because they're really poor over there, and their parents needed the money or whatever the case is and they were absolutely free to stay and flew out," Giuffre said.
She said she saw the three girls with her own eyes and that Epstein had repeatedly described to her how the girls had massaged him and performed oral sex on him.
They were flown back to France the next day.
"He was so excited about the entire event, replayed over and over again over the next course of weeks how cute they were and how you could tell they were really young," she said.
"He went on to tell me how Brunel bought them in Paris from their parents, offering them the usual sums of money, visas, and modeling career prospects.
"Laughing the whole way through, Jeffrey thought it was absolutely brilliant how easily money seduced all walks of life, nothing or no one that couldn't be bought."

Another civil suit also involving Giuffre alleges that Brunel and Epstein recruited young girls from South America and Eastern Europe to have sex with him.
Epstein invested $1million to help launch Brunel's Miami-based modeling firm MC2, in return for a "supply of girls on tap," the suit claims.
Brunel allegedly acquired illegitimate visas for underage girls from foreign countries and Epstein housed them at his brother's apartment in Manhattan.
"Jeffrey and Brunel would charge them for rent, forcing them to work for them selling their bodies for money, nude pictures, and even pornography," Giuffre said in the suit.
"These were what seemed like really nice people with not so nice intentions setting an impression of how the dignified wealth play and behind closed doors they had as much civilized manners as a barbaric chimpanzee in heat.
"Giving a girl a step up in finances by teaching them their only worth is what lay between their legs, us girls all were the same in the end, regardless of what country we come from, what language we spoke or our cultural differences, we were all being used for one thing alone, our youthful looks and beautiful bodies."
Epstein was arrested last month on federal charges of orchestrating a sex trafficking ring and abusing dozens of underage girls.
He was found dead of an apparent suicide in his Manhattan jail cell on August 10 after having pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Epstein's death came 24 hours after more than 2,000 pages of documents detailing the lurid allegations of his sexual abuse of underage girls were unsealed.
The documents pertained to a since-settled lawsuit that Giuffre had filed against Maxwell in 2015.
The 35-year-old is one of Epstein's most high-profile accusers, claiming that she was forced to have sex with Britain's Prince Andrew three times when she was 17 and went by Virginia Roberts.
A photo of Andrew grinning with his arm around Roberts' bare midriff when she was a teenager, with Ghislaine behind them both, has become the defining image of the scandal.
The Royal has repeatedly denied Giuffre's allegations, which have been struck from the record by a US judge.

Maxwell, the daughter of disgraced tycoon Robert Maxwell, has also denied that she acted as a "madam" or a "pimp" for Epstein and has described Giuffre's claims as "malicious lies."
Three former MC2 models told The Guardian they were sexually assaulted by Brunel in and nearby Paris throughout the 1980s and 1990s.
Allegations of misconduct against the French model scout, 72, date back decades.
He has never faced any legal action but is now back in the headlines as attention turns to friends of the deceased millionaire sex offender.
In 2015, Brunel denied involvement "directly or indirectly" in Epstein's crimes, telling the Guardian:
"I strongly deny having committed any illicit act or any wrongdoing in the course of my work as a scouter or model agencies manager."
Brunel firmly established himself as one of the fashion industry's top players in the 1980s while working as a scout for Karin Models in Paris.
He claims to have launched the careers of some of the era's most popular models, including Jerry Hall, Angie Everhart, and Christy Turlington.
Famed for his lively parties, it was at one such evening in September 1991 that Thysia Huisman, then aged 18, began feeling lightheaded after being given a drink by Brunel.
The Dutch model, who was staying at Brunel's apartment near the Karin headquarters, claims the scout took her to his bedroom and raped her.
A second former model, now 55, from America, spoke anonymously to the Guardian to allege that Brunel assaulted her outside Paris after scouting her in 1984.
She recalled being alone with him on a night out after he falsely told her they were going to meet other people.
She said he aggressively groped her before she was able to climb out a window and away from him.
A third model, Courtney Soerensen of Stoneboro, Pennsylvania, met Brunel in Paris when she was 19 in 1988.
She alleged that Brunel subjected her to several incidents of unwanted touching hounded her for sex and ruined her career when she rejected him.
Brunel's attorney Joe Titone has yet to comment on the allegations against his client.
