Jeffrey Epstein’s ex-girlfriend helped recruit women for him

New Jersey based artist Rina Oh admitted that she recruited three women for pedofile Jeffrey Epstein, reports the New York Post.

Epstein killed himself in jail while awaiting charges related to the sex trafficking of minors.

The Post reported that Oh described Epstein as her “older rich boyfriend” in the early 2000s.

According to the Daily Beast, one of the woman Oh helped recruit 20 years ago was Marijke Chartouni.

Chartouni accused both Epstein and Oh of assaulting her, a charges Oh denies.

“I don’t hold any ill will toward her (Oh), even though she recruited me. Forgiveness is very freeing,” Chartouni said to the Broken: Seeking Justice podcast, reported the Daily Beast.

Virginia Roberts Giuffre also accuses Oh of abusing her along with Epstein. She says she was kept as Epstein’s sex slave from 1999 to 2002.

“I think it’s wrong to call someone like me a recruiter. I think there needs to be a differentiation. Recruiters were bringing in dozens of people; I didn’t do that,” she said. Oh called herself a victim.

Giuffre slammed Oh for saying that, tweeting that Oh is a deranged woman who was NO victim…Rina- if you read this I hope you live in shame for the rest of your life,” Giuffre tweeted.

The Post reports that Oh didn’t consider 17-year-old girls minors saying they are of legal age in New York.

“I wasn’t asking any questions. I just did as I was told. And you don’t ask questions … that’s rude,”when “dealing with a billionaire,” Oh said on the podcast.

Later she seemed to backtrack.

“I think it’s disgusting seeing 40-year-old men with 20-year-olds. They’re children,” she said later. “I think it’s disgusting and I’m so traumatized.”

    Why do you consistently tag negative Chinese American news stories with Chinese American but use catch all’s like East Asians or Asian Americans when it comes to negative stories about non-Chinese Asians?

    Comes off as pathetically passive aggressive.

    • If I’m not sure what the ethnicity is, we will use the broader term. Also each story gets multiple tags. The first one in the alphabet is normally featured. We can change that, but only on the home page. It’s the limitation of the software we use.
