Jeffrey Epstein's former friend Jean-Luc Brunel ready to speak to prosecutors
Posted from our own JohnQC's comment on yesterday's burg.
Want Some Candy, Little Girl? Epstein's
financier who was alleged to maintain a stable of underage
high class pimp
sex slaves who were paid big bucks to
entertain the rich and/or famous. He is a registered sex offender and made att least 17 out-of-court settlements with former members of his stable, with some cases still ongoing. 2011 court docs reveal that 21 email addresses and phone numbers for Bill Clinton and an aide were found in Epstein's electronic black book, and that Clinton frequently flew with Epstein on his private plane between 2002 to 2005. But really, they were probably just discussing finance or politix or something. While getting massaged. Then things got serious, Jeff was tossed in the slammer in New York and then he
killed himself. Really. That's what happened...
former close friend and business partner has insisted that he is "not on the run" and is willing to talk to prosecutors, despite not having been seen in public since Epstein’s death.
Jean-Luc Brunel, 74, is a model scout who is said to have "discovered" Jerry Hall, Angie Everhart and Christy Turlington.
The Paris prosecutor's office opened a preliminary investigation in August into any possible Epstein victims in its territory, and Mr Brunel is of potential interest to investigators.
Last month police searched Karin Models, which Mr Brunel founded.
In court filings, Virginia Guiffre, a long-time accuser of Epstein, claimed teenage girls were brought to the US by Brunel and were "farmed out" by him to have sex with Epstein. Ms Guiffre also claims she was forced to have sex with Brunel several times. Brunel denies both allegations.
His lawyer Corinne Dreyfus-Schmidt said Mr Brunel "firmly contests accusations in the press" and "will reserve his statements for justice officials."
On Monday Ms Dreyfus-Schmidt, said that her client has notified the Paris prosecutor's office that he is at the disposition of judicial officials.
He did so before French officials opened a full investigation into the Epstein case. Mr Brunel's whereabouts had been a mystery, with sightings of him in South America the only clue.
Epstein was found dead on August 10 in a Manhattan jail while awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges. Mr Brunel and Epstein appear to have first crossed paths in New York, where the French model scout was based having taken over Karin Models and in 1995 expanded into the US.
