One of Jeffrey Epsein's victims has recalled the warning she claims to have been given by his ex-lover Ghislaine Maxwell about the notorious sex predator before she met him.
Convicted paedo Epstein, 66, admitted prostituting underage girls in 2008 and spent 18 months in prison – and was arrested again on July 6, 2019.
He was facing fresh charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy when he was found dead in his cell on August 10 last year after he had been placed on suicide watch.
Socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, 58, who is the daughter of the former British newspaper baron Robert Maxwell, is currently facing trial over criminal child sex trafficking charges in New York.
Maxwell is accused of procuring girls as young as 14 for Epstein to abuse, although she denies all charges against her.
On the first anniversary of Epstein's death, survivors recount their harrowing tales in a bombshell new documentary series on Crime+Investigation.
One of the people interviewed in the new documentary is Epstein survivor Teresa Helm.
Ms Helm accused Epstein of rape, battery and false imprisonment and sought unspecified damages in a civil suit.

Ms Helm, now 40, was 22 when she was offered a job interview at Epstein's Upper East Side mansion to become his traveling masseuse.
She claims to have talked to Maxwell before attending the job interview, and in the documentary she also recounts a conversation she says took place between herself and Maxwell before she met Epstein at his New York residence.
Helm claims Maxwell warned her: “Make sure you give Jeffrey what he wants. Jeffrey always gets what he wants.”
During the interview, Epstein had asked her for a foot rub but once she began, Ms Helm says he moved his foot into her “intimate parts.”
When she tried to leave, he grabbed and sexually assaulted her.

“As Teresa was studying massage at the California Healing Arts College, this seemed like a dream opportunity, but her hopes were dashed when it quickly turned into sexual assault,” Ms Helm's lawsuit states.
She returned home and did not call the police.
It was only 17 years later, when she heard Epstein’s name while listening to a YouTube channel shortly after his arrest in July, that she began to realise who had assaulted her in 2002.
Speaking of her abuser in the documentary, Ms Helm said: “He literally ate, slept, f***ed. That’s all he did. Abuse. It was a revolving door of girls coming through.”
Surviving Jeffrey Epstein is an American documentary television series about the convicted sex offender, directed by Anne Sundberg and Ricki Stern.
The series centres on the survivors’ voices, telling the story in their own words.
It will air on Crime+Investigation on Tuesday August 25, and a description of the show on the channels says: "With insights from members of Epstein’s inner circle and telling the stories of eight key survivors, the four-hour documentary series reveals the full extent and horrors of Epstein’s sex trafficking network, as well as his connections to the rich and powerful on both sides of the Atlantic, used to cover-up his prolific and sordid crimes."
Surviving Jeffrey Epstein premieres on Crime+Investigation with a double episode on Tuesday August 25 at 9pm. Parts three and four will be broadcast the following evening on Wednesday August 26 at 9pm.
