Jeffrey Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre alleged that billionaire hedge fund manager Glenn Dubin was the first person Ghislaine Maxwell instructed her to have sex with — and also claimed she had a sexual encounter with Hyatt Hotels heir Thomas Pritzker, according to newly unsealed court records.
Giuffre testified that Maxwell told her to give Dubin, co-founder of Highbridge Capital Management, an erotic message, which she said was a euphemism for sex, according to her 2016 deposition filed late Wednesday.
“When they say massage, that means erotic, okay? That’s their term for it,” Giuffre said. “And I’m telling you that Ghislaine told me to go to Glenn Dubin and give him a massage, which means sex.”
Giuffre added that Dubin was the first person Maxwell allegedly sent her to after she completed her training as a masseuse and began working for Epstein.
“I know Glenn Dubin was first,” she said in the deposition.
In a separate deposition given by Giuffre, she claimed to have had sex with Pritzker, the billionaire executive chairman of Hyatt Hotels and cousin of Democratic Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker.
Giuffre told Maxwell’s defense attorney under oath that she believed she had been “with Tom once,” referring to a sexual encounter. She did not suggest that she had been directed by Maxwell to have sex with the hotelier.
Later in the same deposition, Giuffre talked about Maxwell allegedly sending her to have sex with the “owner of a large hotel chain” in France, but she did not name that person.
A spokesperson for Pritzker, now 73, said the married businessman “continues to vehemently deny” the allegation.
Pritzker is also a cousin of Penny Pritzker, a billionaire businesswoman who served as the secretary of commerce under President Barack Obama, and who has led the Harvard Corporation since February 2022 and recently faced heat over former President Claudine Gay’s plagiarism scandal and antisemitism claims at the elite university.
The names of Thomas Pritzker and Dubin, as well as Dubin’s wife, Dr. Eva Andersson-Dubin, appeared among hundreds of pages of court documents that were released Wednesday evening.
Andersson-Dubin, a physician and former Miss Sweden, has said that she dated Epstein in the 1980s and 90s, before she married Dubin.
Dubin and Andersson-Dubin previously denied Giuffre’s allegations. Neither has been charged with a crime.
During Maxwell’s Manhattan federal court trial in 2021, Andersson-Dubin, whom Epstein’s madam named as a personal friend in a deposition, testified in her defense, saying that she had not witnessed any inappropriate activity between Epstein and underage girls.
Dubin and his wife are prominent New York City philanthropists, renowned for establishing the Dubin Breast Cancer Center at the Mount Sinai Health System. Dubin also helped start the Robin Hood Foundation to combat poverty.
The newly-filed unredacted records — ordered released last month by Manhattan federal Judge Lorreta Preska — were part of a defamation lawsuit that was brought by Giuffre against Maxwell in 2015 and settled two years later.
The first 40 documents, of 250 set to be unsealed in the coming days, contain the names of more than 170 Epstein associates, among them former Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, and Prince Andrew.
Giuffre claimed that she was repeatedly sexually assaulted by the disgraced British royal at Maxwell’s home when she was just 17 years old. She settled a civil lawsuit with him last year.
Giuffre also alleged in depositions that she was pressured by Maxwell into having sex with other powerful men in Epstein’s social circle.
Maxwell is currently serving a 20-year sentence on conspiracy and sex trafficking charges stemming from her role as a madam for Epstein, who died by suicide in jail in 2019.
