Jeffrey Epstein threatened to CURSE pregnant journalist’s unborn baby and warned ‘I know every doctor in New York’ – The Sun

A JOURNALIST claims that Jeffrey Epstein told her he would curse her unborn children and knew every doctor in New York after she pushed to print an article on the sexual abuse he carried out.

Former Vanity Fair journalist, Vicky Ward, who spoke as part of a four-part Netflix documentary, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, was one of the first to speak with two of Epstein's victims in 2003.

Vicky, who was pregnant at the twins at the time she began her investigation, was threatened by the now-deceased tycoon who said he knew every doctor in New York, who would place a curse on her unborn children.

The journalist, originally from Chelmsford, spoke with victims Maria and Annie Farmer, two sisters who say they were abused by Epstein and Maxwell on separate occasions in 1996.

She recalls a phone conversation with Epstein after approaching him for a right to reply to the allegations made in the article, written for the magazine.

She told documentary makers: "He said, 'Well Vicky if I don't like this piece, it's going to be bad for you and your family.

"And I was newly pregnant with twins, he said 'where are you going to give birth?'

"He followed that up with, 'well I know all the doctors, in all the hospitals so it doesn't matter. If you don't tell me, I'll find out. If I don't like this piece, I'm going to have a witch doctor place a curse on your unborn children'.

"He was beginning to spook me out, and these were just conversations.

"So I could only imagine how the women must have felt."

She also recalls a conversation with her then-editor Graydon Carter, who she says was terrified after finding a severed cat's head in his garden and a bullet on his doorstep.

She said: "Suddenly I was told by my editor that the girls were being taken out of the story.

"I was horrified, I said 'why? They've been so brave, they've laid so much on the line, why?'.

"The message came back, 'well he's obviously sensitive about the girls. That's a sore point."

She also claims that the former Vanity Editor told her that he believed Jeffrey Epstein's account of the story before the girls' claims were pulled from the story.

However, Grayson said in a statement released by Netflix that the story 'simply did not met our legal threshold' and that her Vicky Ward's account of the story was inaccurate.


Maria Farmer's horrifying account revealed that both Epstein and Maxwell, who is thought to have recruited underage girls for the tycoon, touched her inappropriately in a bedroom at his home in Ohio in 1996.

Annie also claims that she was given a topless massage by Maxwell in view of Epstein and that later he got into bed with her, carrying out the terrifying abuse at his New Mexico Ranch.

However, Maria claims that after approaching NYPD and FBI to report that nothing was done investigate the shocking claims.

Maria told the documentary-makers: "When I got back to New York City, I told NYPD everything that had happened.

"I told them I had been assaulted and they said, 'it's just not in our jurisdiction, we have nothing to do with it',

"These things happened in Ohio and New Mexico, you are gonna have to call FBI.

"When I called the FBI, I laid it out very specifically.

"I said, I'm reporting these people: Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

"I told them everything and I could tell that he believed me, so I really believed that he was going to take care of this.

"And then we just actually did not hear back."

Maria and her sister were the first Epstein victims to ever report their abuse to authorities back in 1996.

Ghislaine Maxwell, who has rarely been seen in public since the claims, denies all allegations made against her.


More horrific details of the disgraced financiers' sordid life have been revealed in the documentary, telling how he ran a 'sexual abuse pyramid scheme'.

It is claimed that Epstein encouraged his young victims to recruit more girls into his pedophile ring over years of carrying out the sick abuse.

The tycoon was facing life behind bars for carrying out the sexual assaults on women and underage girls, helped by his network of enablers, who turned a blind eye to his crimes.

He was found dead in his cell back in August last year before he could stand trial and questions were raised over how he had managed to take his own life in the high-security prison.

Documentary makers also spoke to witness, Steve Scully, 70, who says he saw Prince Andrew kissing Virginia Roberts and grabbing her bottom on paedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s Caribbean island home.

Virginia Roberts claims she was a victim after being bought into the sex trafficking ring by Epstein and forced to have sex with the royal – a claim that has been strongly denied by the Duke of York.

The Prince was linked to Epstein after visiting him several times in New York at this Caribbean Island but has since acknowledged that friendship was a 'mistake' and an 'error of judgement'.

Amongst these other allegations there have also been claims that Bill Clinton was spotted on Epstein's island.

Prince Andrew has emphatically denied a relationship with Ms Roberts and has said he cannot recall a 2001 picture of them together.

The Duke, who has now been stripped of all his royal duties, also took part in a car crash TV interview where he denied meeting the Roberts at a London nightclub.
