She gave Maxwell a massage and was then told to meet Epstein at his Upper East Side lair, where he sexually assaulted her during a foot massage, Helm told the BBC on Wednesday.

Helm claims that before going to meet Epstein, Maxwell told her: ‘”You know, make sure that you give Jeffrey what he wants, because Jeffrey always gets what he wants”.’

‘If it were not for her I would never have got myself to the home of a predator,’ Helm added.

The Helm’s story is not part of the case that federal prosecutors in New York are bringing against Maxwell, who faces six counts including sex trafficking and conspiracy. She denies the charges and the trial resumes for its fourth day on Thursday.

Helm was one of five women who sued Epstein’s estate in Federal District Court in Manhattan in 2020, months after his death.

The lawsuit stated: ‘As Teresa was studying massage at the California Healing Arts College, this seemed like a dream opportunity, but her hopes were dashed when it quickly turned into sexual assault.’

The Sun reported that since the filing in 2020, Teresa and the four other women have agreed to participate in a Victim Compensation Fund.
