Epstein ‘rape victim’ who branded Ghislaine Maxwell a ‘master manipulator’ arrives court to support accusers

A 'RAPE victim' of Jeffrey Epstein who branded Ghislaine Maxwell a “master manipulator” has arrived at court for the fourth day of the high profile sex trafficking trial.

Teresa Helm, 41, is not part of Maxwell's trial, but is attending today flanked by her attorney in an apparent show of solidarity with other alleged victims.

Ghislaine Maxwell, 59, the socalite and former girlfriend of Epstein, faces six charges of sexual abuse and trafficking – allegations she denies.

Teresa, who lives in Ohio, alleges Maxwell lured her to the millioniare sex offender's Manahttan townhouse so he could assault her.

Maxwell denies all allegations of misconduct made against her.

Teresa is one of multiple alleged victims who have attended court in the hope of seeing Maxwell convicted.

Yesterday, another accuser Jennifer Kalin sat in the federal court's overflow room as the socialite's first accuser was cross examined on the stand.

Maxwell and Epstein are alleged to have lured in young girls and then abused them as they wowed their victims with their glamorous lifestyle.

She is facing charges relating to four alleged victims, three of whom are appearing anonymously – with the one named complainant being Annie Farmer.

Maxwell's defence are expected to hinge much of their case on going after the credibility of the alleged victims.

Her first accuser – who is appearing under the pseudonym “Jane” – took the stand again yesterday on day three of the trial in New York.

Ghislaine appeared in court yesterday flanked by her sister Isabel, her brother Kevin and a small group of supporters.

And her lawyers begun the day by attempting to poke holes in the harrowing testimony given yesterday by Jane.

During cross examination, she was asked by Maxwell's lawyers if Epstein had ever introduced her to Donald Trump.

She agreed she had and claims she was driven to Mar-a-Lago by Epstein in a dark green car when she was 14.

And later on, she also mentioned she took part in a Trump sponsored beauty pageant.

The court heard Epstein had given her 2,000 dollars for a dress.

Asked if she had cried about only being given 2,000 dollars, Jane replied: “That's ridiculous, I wouldn't do that.”

Trump has long been associated with beauty pageants, owning the MIss USA contest from 1996 to 2015.

There has been no suggestion in the trial – or anywhere else – that Mr Trump was aware of Epstein's sickening crimes.

And she was also asked if she ever remembered being on a flight with Ghislaine's pal Prince Andrew, to which she also replied yes.

Prince Andrew denies any wrongdoing over his friendship with Epstein – including strongly denying he slept with 17-year-old sex slave Virginia Roberts.

It is the third time Trump have been mentioned in the case – and the second time for Andrew.

Both were named yesterday alongside Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker as plane passengers by Epstein's longtime pilot Lawrence Visoski.

And on both occasions the famous names were brought up by Maxwell's team during cross-examination.

Epstein and Maxwell rubbed shoulders with the world's rich and famous – allegedly hiding in plain sight amid a web of sex abuse.

Multi-millionaire Epstein would keep a “little black book” of powerful contacts as he jetted around the world allegedly with Maxwell.

Prosecutors argue Maxwell “served up” young girls to her former lover and also allegedly participated in some of the attacks.

Her lawyers deny all charges against her and claim she is being made a proxy for Epstein and have painted the alleged victims as money-hungry.

Maxwell's lawyer Bobbi Sternheim claimed “ever since Eve, women have been blamed for the evil deeds of men”.

She said: “Ghislaine Maxwell is not Jeffrey Epstein or any of the other men, moguls and media giants who abuse women.”

Prosecution called the Brit heiress a “dangerous predator” and said she and Epstein were “partners in crime”.

Maxwell, daughter of disgraced newspaper mogul Robert Maxwell, is alleged to have snared girls as young as 14 into a “nightmare” after promising them “the world”.

She is accused of walking girls into Epstein's liar where she watched as he molested them – and sometimes even joined in.

Convicted sex offender Epstein killed himself while awaiting trial for further sex trafficking charges in August 2019.

She also faces two other charges of perjury over allegations she lied in a deposition in a separate civil suit, but these will be tried separately.

Maxwell was arrested suddenly in July 2020 – and has been held in prison ever since as she was deemed a flight risk.
