One of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged victims issuing the late billionaire’s estate for $500 million accusing him of causing her to develop a rare bone disease.
27-year-old Caroline Kaufman spoke to The Sun about her lawsuit and feeling suicidal after allegedly being raped by Epstein at his New York townhome.
She claims to have been approached by a woman named Susan at a horse show. The woman later called to invite her to the fake model call.
Caroline says she met Epstein after being invited to a fake model casting when she was only 17. She claims Epstein struck her in the face while he was sexually assaulting her in his room.
The alleged victim says she developed osteomyelitis, a rare bone disease, from the attack. It causes her to experience “deep pain and muscle spasms.”
Caroline is one of the few victims who turned down a cut of the $87 million victims’ fund put together for the many women who spoke out against the alleged sexual predator.
She finds the amount offered to the victims to be “offensive.” Her legal team believes Epstein has a lot more money hidden somewhere that his victims should receive a cut of for the horrific pain they suffered at his hands.
Caroline told the outlet, "It's been difficult the past few months. I was going to go with the fund but the offer was too low, it's not enough to cover surgery, I'm quite offended by the offer.The amount of money the fund had, I don't believe it was distributed fairly. We're going to go ahead and go to court.?
She added, "The jaw issue is caused by an injury in the past, and when I had an encounter with Epstein he pinned me down and went to grab my arm.”
The alleged victim says, "He forced my arm and as he did that he nicked my jaw, it's the only thing I can think of which has caused this."
The alleged damage has taken a serious toll on Caroline. She claims, "I've lost days of work, I ride horses, I feel physically exhausted because of it, and I've had difficulty eating."
Her lawyers are moving forward with their legal battle against Epstein's estate.
