Two of three new lawsuits filed Tuesday revealed several detailed claims about how the late disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged "madam" Ghislaine Maxwell coached young girls for regular abuse.
A lawsuit filed Tuesday in Manhattan federal court by alleged victim "Priscilla Doe" says the British socialite gave Doe a "step-by-step" tutorial of pleasuring Epstein at his island, Little St. James, in 2006.
Maxwell used her own hands "to demonstrate how to pleasure Jeffrey Epstein manually so that plaintiff would know exactly how to make Jeffrey Epstein happy," the complaint said.
The complaint also alleged that Maxwell made sure Doe and several other young girls were "constantly on call to sexually service" Epstein. Doe also alleged that Epstein confiscated her passport so she couldn't leave the island voluntarily.
"Maxwell made it clear to Plaintiff that it was very important for her to understand and take this instruction seriously," the complaint says. "The message delivered to Plaintiff by Ghislaine Maxwell was conveyed in a serious manner that instilled genuine fear in Plaintiff that her failure to comply would cause her serious harm."
Maxwell has been at the center of previous allegations by alleged victims and has come under renewed scrutiny after Epstein died by suicide on August 10 while awaiting trial on sex trafficking and conspiracy charges.
In a second complaint that was also filed Tuesday, "Lisa Doe" said in a separate complaint that Epstein kept a stack of "Massage for Dummies" books that he handed out to the young women brought to him for massages that turned sexual.
The documents say Doe was hired when she was 17 in 2002 to teach a "dance-based exercise class" at his Upper East Side mansion.
She was later coerced into performing personal massages on Epstein that turned sexual and included the promise that the financier would help her with her dance career if she went through with the encounters.
The complaint says that during their first encounter, Epstein forcibly used a sex toy on Doe while he masturbated. Before he left the room, he gave her one of the "Massage for Dummies" books he had piled nearby, telling her to read the whole book before he handed her $300 in cash.
Priscilla and Lisa were two of the three alleged victims who filed suit against Epstein's estate on Tuesday.
Maxwell is not charged with a crime and has previously denied recruiting women for Epstein.
