“Yeah, he raped me – forcefully raped me. Knew exactly what he was doing, and I don’t think cared…if I wasn’t afraid to come forward sooner, then maybe he wouldn’t have done it to other girls. I feel really guilty.” -Jennifer Araoz pic.twitter.com/MhC1ugimLb

Jennifer Araoz Wanted to Become an Actress and her father died of AIDS
Araoz had dreams of becoming a Broadway actress. In the interview with NBC’s “Today”, she said the woman told her Epstein could open doors and help her career. “That was a big part of it,” Araoz said. Epstein, who’d learned that Araoz’s father had died from AIDS a few years earlier, also told the teen he would make donations to AIDS charities.
In an interview with NBC News, Jennifer Araoz says she was 14 years old when a young woman approached her outside her New York City high school in the fall of 2001.
Jeffrey Epstein accuser Jennifer Araoz explains what happened when Epstein took her inside his “favorite room” in his house, the “massage room.”
The woman was friendly and curious, asking Araoz personal questions about her family, her upbringing, their finances. Soon she began talking to Araoz about a man she knew who was kind and wealthy and lived nearby. His name, the woman said, was Jeffrey Epstein.
The first few times she went to Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse, all they did was talk, Araoz said, and the friendly woman came along. Araoz told him about her dream of becoming a Broadway actress and about her father, who had died of AIDS when she was 12.

But on Araoz’s first visit without the woman, Epstein gave her a tour of his mansion that culminated in a visit to what he described as his “favorite room in the house,” Araoz said. A massage table sat on the floor. A painting of a naked young woman hung from the wall.
Araoz would return to that room regularly over the next year, she said, manipulated into stripping down to her panties and giving Epstein massages that ended with him pleasuring himself to completion and her leaving with $300.
In the fall of 2002, Epstein pressured her to do more, Araoz said. “He raped me, forcibly raped me, knew exactly what he was doing. What hurts even more so is that if I wasn’t afraid to come forward sooner then maybe he wouldn’t have done it to other girls. I feel really guilty. To this day I feel really guilty.”

She ran out of the house afterward and never went back again, she said.
‘He forcefully raped me knew exactly what he was doing and I don’t think cared.
‘If I wasn’t afraid to come forward sooner than maybe he wouldn’t have done it to other girls. I feel really guilty,’ she said.
Other former victims have accused Epstein’s ‘best friend’, Ghislaine Maxwell, of acting as a madam for him. She denies the allegations. There are another four women who were described by prosecutors as ‘potential co-conspirators’ in Epstein’s 2008 plea deal who also worked for him and allegedly procured girls for him.
“I didn’t know if he would get angry or if I didn’t listen what the repercussions would have been,” says Jennifer Araoz. “So I kind of just followed. I was so young, so I didn’t know better.” https://t.co/2knKH1xc9W
