Jeffrey Epstein's 'teen sex slave' Virginia Roberts grins in intimate pics 'taken by paedo billionaire during years of abuse'

JEFFREY Epstein's alleged sex slave smiles in a series of chilling childhood snaps she says the paedo billionaire took during his years abusing her.

Virginia Roberts revealed the intimate photos in an explosive lawsuit this week as apparent proof of the brazen financier's depraved behaviour.


In one, she is seen aged as young as 15 standing in front of a ferry in New York City – 1,000 miles away from her Florida home.

Others apparently show her horse riding on Epstein's ranch – when he allegedly took her to New Mexico for the weekend.

In new court docs seen by DailyMail.com, she claims she was ferried around the world as Epstein's sex slave – and forced to sleep with him and his powerful friends.

Roberts, now named Giuffre, said of the photos: "Epstein took me on a ferry boat on one of the trips to New York City and there he took the picture above.

You can see how young I looked in the photograph

"I was approximately 15 or 16 years old at the time.

"You can see how young I looked in the photograph."

Roberts also noted in the lawsuit that that photo was taken during her time staying with Epstein in his $77million Manhattan mansion.

It was while staying here that the then-teenager claims she was repeatedly raped by Epstein.




'SEX TRAINING'

Roberts, now 35, said in the suit that she was "trained" to do whatever Epstein wanted – "including sexual activities and the use of sexual toys."

She wrote: "The training was in New York and Florida, at Epstein’s mansions.

"It was basically every day and was like going to school. I also had to have sex with Epstein many times."

Roberts described the alleged sick "sex training" as an effort to turn her into "everything a man wanted me to be."

SUING OVER PLEA DEAL

The photos form part of Roberts' evidence as she sues the US government over a so-called sweetheart deal Epstein was offered in 2008.

After being accused of molesting a minor, he pleaded guilty to procuring a 17-year-old girl for prostitution – avoiding more serious federal criminal charges.

That plea deal agreed with Florida prosecutors saw him serve just 13 months in custody with "work release" that allowed him to go to his office on weekdays.

Roberts is one of Epstein's most high profile alleged victims – and claims to have been forced to have sex with his pal Prince Andrew.

The Duke of York was pictured with his arm around the then 17-year-old's waist at the home of Epstein's aide Ghislane Maxwell in London in 2001 – but he has strongly denied the claims.

INTIMATE PICS

Roberts wrote of the other photos: "The first one is a museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

"We had gone sightseeing for the day. Epstein took this picture of me.

"I was approximately 17 at the time, judging from the looks of it.

"At the end of the day we returned to Epstein’s Zorro Ranch.

"The second picture is me on one of Epstein’s horses on the ranch in New Mexico.

"The following two are from wintertime in New Mexico."

He could have had me killed or abducted, and I always knew he was capable of that if I did not obey him.

Recalling how she was flown around the world by Epstein, Roberts claimed: "Epstein had promised me a lot, and I knew if I left I would be in big trouble.

"I also knew that I was a witness to a lot of illegal and very bad behaviour by Epstein and his friends.

"If I left Epstein, he knew all kinds of powerful people.

"He could have had me killed or abducted, and I always knew he was capable of that if I did not obey him.

"He let me know that he knew many people in high places.

"Speaking about himself, he said 'I can get away' with things. I was very scared, particularly since I was a teenager."

'DAILY BASIS'

In one explosive passage, Roberts adds: "When I was with him, Epstein had sex with underage girls on a daily basis.

"His interest in this kind of sex was obvious to the people around him.

"The activities were so obvious and bold that anyone spending any significant time at one of Epstein’s residences would have clearly been aware of what was going on."

Epstein, 66, denies child sex trafficking charges.

The billionaire hedge fund manager is accused of maintaining a “vast network of underage victims” – some as young as 14.

He faces 45 years in jail if found guilty on all counts.
