Maritza Vasquez worked for Karin Models in Miami as a bookkeeper from 1998-2003 & from 2003-08 after Jean-Luc Brunel dissolved it and opened MC2 when Epstein began funding it and model apartments
Deposition-June 24, 2010
Here’s the part of the depo that mentions that Epstein, Brunel & a woman in France were planning another company & Epstein wanted it to be like @realDonaldTrump’s “modeling” agency
Epstein was paying for visas for girls
Nadia Marcinikova came on a model visa prior to 2003 at age 14 but never modeled...ever.
There was a problem with her visa due to them giving the wrong info, and Epstein & Brunel blamed another bookkeeper, Eva in NY.
“...and Jean-Luc himself was driving the girls to [Epstein’s] house because he was having a party and there were supposed to be girls”
“4 girls from Brazil”
Two of the girls were 14 or 15 and 13 or 14 when they were brought to the US by Epstein/Brunel’s mc2 “modeling agency”
Brunel is a cocaine addict.
Told Vasquez he wanted to sleep with one of the underage girls.
Another time after one of the times Brunel took girls to a club in Miami Beach, one of the 14 yr old girls said the police had been asking questions.
Sergio Cordero’s role was to get girls for Epstein (presumably in South America)
Brunel told Cordero he needed to bring girls for when Epstein went to Ecuador
Vasquez knew Epstein liked young girls from Brunel saying so.
Brunel would take minor girls to Epstein’s house.
Two of the girls she knew of were 15 years old and Brazilian
Khalid Mohammed: “scouter & booker” Khalid Salaam: “model scout” usually from within the US.
She was told by another bookkeeper that Epstein got started with money from a girlfriend’s father.
They talk about Maxwell here but in the book Filthy Rich, it mentions Epstein dating Ace Greenberg’s daughter Lynne & getting into Bear Stearns 🤷🏻♀️
Edwards asks about a 13yo Colombian girl
Vasquez talks about people changing their tune after being paid off
Vasquez says the girls do whatever they’re told and she used to counsel them by saying that they work, but after that they don’t need to do what ppl tell them to do
Girls who did jobs for $100-200k would come back upset saying they didn’t want to work there again bc they were being molested.
One Brazilian girl was hired for a 3 day job for $15-20k per day. After the shoot, she refused to go on the guy’s yacht and he fired her
