Outspoken Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre is now being accused of sexually assaulting another woman.
Artist Rina Oh filed a claim in U.S. District Court this week alleging that she was “sexually assaulted” by Giuffre and Epstein in a massage room at his New York townhouse in 2001, according to The New York Post.
Oh claims in the brief, obtained by the news outlet, that she was called into the massage room to see Epstein and was “surprised” to find both Epstein and Giuffre “waiting for her.” She alleged Giuffre then started to touch her without “consent and much to her horror,” although she did not reciprocate.
“I went into the massage room and [Giuffre] touched me without my consent; she sexually abused me,” Oh told The Post. “I was standing there, frozen like a deer. I did not move. I was in shock. I felt mortified and was uncomfortable.”
Giuffre’s attorney, Kat Thomas, has denied the allegations made in the court filing.
“The allegations of sexual assault against Ms. Giuffre are not true,” she told the outlet.
Oxygen.com reached out to Thomas but did not receive an immediate response.
The allegations are the latest move in a heated legal battle between the two women that began after Giuffre accused Oh in a 2020 tweet of abusing underage minors alongside Epstein.
“Those were the years in which you procured & partook in the abuse of minors with #Epstein she wrote,” in the tweet. “Your no survivor, you’re an oxygen thief. A virus on humanity.”
In other tweets that she wrote criticizing Oh for trying to get money from Epstein’s victims’ compensation fund, Giuffre claimed Oh had recruited victims for Epstein and had once sliced her leg and left a six-inch scar, according to The Insider.
Oh had been an adult when she began dating Epstein in the early 2000s.
While she once referred to him as her “rich, older boyfriend,” Oh now believes she was a “sexual victim of Epstein,” alleging that the now-deceased financier had tried to sex traffic her in the past and committed a “really violent act” against her.
After Giuffre’s post on Twitter, Oh sued her for defamation in late 2021, seeking more than $10 million in damages.
Giuffre responded in May by filing a counter claim. In it, she alleged that she had been “the victim of the sadomasochist sexual play and physical abuse perpetrated against her by Ms. Oh, including cutting, slashing and other physical injuries during the sadomasochist sessions that have left Ms. Giuffre with permanent and emotional and physical scars.”
Oh denied those allegations to The Post.
“I never cut her leg,” she said. “I never touched her. I never heard of anyone doing anything like that during my involvement with Jeffrey Epstein.”
Her attorney, Ira Meyerowitz, told Insider the latest claim in court accusing Giuffre of sexual abuse was not meant to question Giuffre’s own account of abuse at the hands of Epstein and his girlfriend and reported madam, Ghislaine Maxwell.
"I'm not saying that she isn't a survivor and that she wasn't a victim of Epstein's house of horrors. Or that she wasn't subjected to the same manipulations and psychological games that Epstein and Maxwell used to manipulate these young women. I think that she was," he told the outlet. "But I know it happened to Rina too."
Giuffre has said publicly that she was sexually abused by Epstein as a teenager. She also accused Epstein and Maxwell of sex trafficking her to Prince Andrew when she was just 17 years old.
Giuffre sued Prince Andrew in August and later settled with the British royal earlier this year in a multi-million-dollar settlement.
The Duke of York never directly admitted to the allegations Giuffre made against him, but acknowledged she had been a victim of abuse during her lifetime.
“Prince Andrew has never intended to malign Ms. Giuffre’s character, and he accepts that she has suffered both as an established victim of abuse and as a result of unfair public attacks,” stated a joint statement from both parties obtained previously by Oxygen.com.
Epstein took his own life in a federal jail cell in 2019 while awaiting his own sexual trafficking trial.
