An alleged Jeffrey Epstein victim claimed the disgraced financier recorded extortion videos of wealthy associates, according to newly unsealed court documents.
Epstein victim Sarah Ransome’s 2017 testimony was released earlier this week – raising new questions about allegations of sexual abuse of underage girls. Ransome’s testimony was taken for Virginia Giuffre’s lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell.
Ransome was reportedly introduced to Epstein in late 2006 by one of his employees who approached her at a club. Shortly after meeting Epstein, Ransome reportedly traveled to his infamous island in the US Virgin Islands and to one of his apartments in New York City.
Ransome claimed that she began seeing his psychiatrist for treatment.
“Jeffrey’s psychiatrist has prescribed me lithium, Ritalin, and there is a drug with a bipolar description that Jeffrey Epstein’s psychiatrist has also prescribed me,” Ransome said in her statement Inner Edition. “I can’t remember the exact name of this bipolar drug. But I started on lithium and Ritalin.”
Ransome said one side effect of the lithium was weight gain, which became a problem for both Epsteins. Maxwell ordered Ransome – who was a 5’8″ model – to keep her weight under 115 pounds.
“Weight was a big issue for Ghislaine and Jeffrey so the lithium just didn’t work for me. I mean, I gained weight pretty quickly,” Ransome said.
The weight limit boiled over one night on Epstein’s Little St. James island.
“I can’t remember the specific conversation, how it went. We argued about my weight, quite a heated argument,” Ransome recalled. “I remember it overheated and I ran away and tried to swim off the island. I wanted to get as far away from Jeffrey and Ghislaine as possible.”
A search party was assembled and Ransome returned to Epstein.
Ransome claimed that Epstein controlled how the women looked and dressed – he bought all the clothes and cosmetics.
Ransome said, “All the outfits — there were Jeffrey Epstein dresses on the island that were all Victoria’s Secret attire: bikinis, nightgowns.”
Victoria’s Secret was previously owned by Epstein’s former client and partner, Les Wexner.
During her six months with Epstein, Ransome claimed that the convicted pedophile would record videos of his associates having sex with his stable of women. She claimed Epstein recorded the tapes as “blackmail.”
New in unsealed emailsRansome wrote: “When my girlfriend had intercourse [redacted] and [redacted]Sex videos were actually filmed by Jeffrey every time.”
“Thank goodness she managed to get some footage of the sex tapes filmed which clearly identifies the faces of [redacted] and [redacted] having sex with her,” the email said claims. “Epstein, frustratingly, wasn’t in any of the footage, but he was so smart.”
Ransome claimed in the email that her friend sent her footage of the threesome sex act. She also claimed to have backed up copies of the tapes to USB sticks and kept them hidden in several European locations. Ransome claimed that when the secret videos were found, she told a single person “if anything happens to me, before the footage is released.”
She announced, “I will be more than willing to swear under oath and testify in court about these sex tapes.”
Ransome told the email recipient that the footage “will break your heart into a million tiny pieces.”
That Daily Wire reported, “It’s unclear when this email was written, but it appears to have been written to New York Post reporter Maureen Callahan. In other October 2016 emails to Callahan, Ransome claims she contacted Russian authorities to release her story, that the US government refused to help her, that her fiancee’s life was in danger and that the CIA had hacked their emails.”
Ransome claimed her friend went to the police but was “humiliated”. She added that an edited person “intimidated and severely beat her up.” Ransome said her friend is “1000% certain the FBI conducted a cover-up” and that an edited person threatened to kill her if they go public with allegations.
In an email sent to Callahan on Oct. 23, 2016, Ransome completely changed course, saying she would “happily retract and distance myself from everything I’ve said to you.” She ended her email by saying, “I wish you the best of luck catching Epstein and co.”
