She may have been Jeffrey Epstein’s first victim — a young woman recruited by the convicted pedophile’s gal pal Ghislaine Maxwell in London in 1994 when she was 17.
In his book, “Relentless Pursuit: My Fight for the Victims of Jeffrey Epstein,” Florida lawyer Bradley Edwards describes his interviews with a woman he calls “Fantasia,” who reached out to him when she was nearly 40 to describe the alleged abuse she suffered by Epstein and Maxwell.
“Fantasia explained that Ghislaine’s role in life was to please Jeffrey, a job which included telling Fantasia what sex outfit to wear to make him happy,” writes Edwards. “The school girl outfit was his favorite.”
She also told Edwards that when underage girls were around, “Epstein’s desire to have sex with them was so overwhelming that he would physically shake.”
In 2017, “Fantasia,” who said she had been Epstein’s sex slave for a decade, ultimately told Edwards that she was too afraid to join the litigation against him. She told Edwards that she got a call in the middle of the night as she was mulling whether or not to speak out.
“If you care about your daughter, you will stay out of the litigation in New York,” the caller warned.
The description of Fantasia is very similar to the unnamed “Minor Victim – 3” in the July 2 federal indictment against Maxwell, which alleges that she procured girls for sex with Epstein between 1994 and 1997.
“Maxwell groomed and befriended Minor Victim-3 in London … between approximately 1994 and 1995,” the indictment reads. “Maxwell introduced Minor Victim-3 to Epstein and arranged for multiple interactions between Minor Victim-3 and Epstein. During those interactions, Maxwell encouraged Minor Victim-3 to massage Epstein, knowing that Epstein would engage in sex acts with Minor Victim-3 during those massages.”
In an interview with The Post, Edwards refused to say whether “Fantasia” was Minor Victim-3.
