Oh boy, this one is quite a doozy and you may want to sit down for a while. It's got the juicy bits of a high school drama with the consequences of sexual abuse and prison time. After all the news headlines that Jeffrey Epstein was making, there was a model who finally came out of the woodworks to describe the house of horrors that she was in when trying to further model her career - with a big emphasis on her not becoming a prostitute at the same time.
Her name is Elisabetta Tai and she was 21, Italian, very pretty, and somehow ended up in a room with Jeffrey Epstein, a vibrator, and what could only be described as Victoria's WORST secret.
She got to New York, arrived in Manhattan, and her agent/booker gave her Epstein's address. Tai thought she was trying out for a spot in a Victoria's Secret catalog - and maybe she really was.
As the NY Post reported from their interview with her “He told me this is one of the most important people in modeling. He said that this man is in charge of Victoria’s Secret and he’s going to change your life. I rang the doorbell of this incredible mansion, and a butler answered the door. It was astonishing. It was a very beautiful house, and I saw about five models walking around as soon as I walked in. I was so excited.”
Tai told the NY Post that a woman with "short black hair" greeted her and took her to Epstein's office. This woman is possibly "Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s gal pal" Tai "confirmed that she looked like the same woman who met her at Epstein’s mansion" - but did state she would not remember the woman's actual name. It's possibly Maxwell, who is the daughter of Robert Maxwell, a media mogul. Maxwell herself has not been charged with any crimes, but she has several accusations against her by at least three women who suggest that Maxwell may have been recruiting young ladies for Jeffrey Epstein. The NY Post states that at least two of the girls say BOTH Maxwell and Epstein had sexually assaulted them.
How does Victoria's Secret get into this? Well, Epstein was friends with a billionaire in Ohio named Leslie Wexner. Wexner owned Limited Brands, now called L Brands - which is the parent company of Victoria's Secret. Wexner is a man, by the way. They were apparently such good friends that they shared the huge mansion located at East 71st Street. This is the location where the young Italian model, Tai, went for the interview that turned into a freak horror show.
The lady with the "short black hair" took Tai to Epstein. They were in a room with a massage table. As they were talking, Epstein got undressed and on the massage table. He told Tai to come over to him and he handed her a vibrator.
“I thought he was preparing to have a massage, and that someone was about to come in to the room and give him a massage"
“I froze,” she said. “I didn’t know what to do.
“I just grabbed the vibrator and threw it at his head,” she said.
“I mean, I don’t know where it landed, I just blacked out and then I ran as fast as I could out of the room.”
The bad part gets worse. She didn't know where the door was. The mansion was gigantic and she was lost. She ran into the woman with the "short black hair" who literally "grabbed her and asked her what she was doing."
“She told me that I couldn’t just leave. She said that this man is important, that he is a friend of President Clinton.”
