A Dutch former model told how she was raped by the boss of the modeling agency, who reportedly cared for young girls for convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
Thysia Huisman, 46, claims that she was only 18 when she was drugged and raped by Jean-Luc Brunel in the 1990s.
She said how she reportedly received a drink that her & # 39; woozy & # 39; felt before Brunel led her to his bed and forced herself – leaving her alone with bruises on her thighs.

& # 39; I felt it – this is difficult – between my legs. Push, & Mrs. Huisman told the Guardian.
Brunel, 72, even introduced her to his & # 39; good friend the CEO of Miramax & # 39 ;, Harvey Weinstein, according to Mrs. Huisman's report.
Brunel has emerged as a key figure in the scandal surrounding US billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who committed suicide last month in a prison in New York while facing indictment of child trafficking.
He has been accused in court of rape and girls under the age of 12 before Epstein, charges he has denied in the past.
But since the arrest of Epstein in July – just when he returned from a trip to Paris – Brunel, formerly a high-power scout, has disappeared.
She said how she reportedly received a drink that made her & # 39; woozy & # 39; felt before Brunel (photo) led her to his bed and forced herself on her – leaving her awake only with bruises on her inner thighs.
Mrs Huisman wrote a letter to the French public prosecutor Remi Heitz in which she approached her trial.
She claimed that she met Brunel in a chocolate shop in Brussels and he said he could make her a star if she traveled to Paris with him.
Because she was so important to Brunel, Huisman claims that he insisted on sleeping in his apartment when they arrived.
During Mrs. Huisman's week-long journey, she said that Brunel was constantly approaching her and flirting.
Mrs. Huisman told the Guardian: & # 39; Once he came into the closet where I was, locked the door behind him and told me: "You know, someday we're going to have sex."

According to Mrs. Huisman, this was the norm in the modeling world at that time.
She said there are parts of & # 39; sad & # 39; young girls were accompanied by a much older businessman and she believed it was clear that they were sleeping together.
At some point of the trip, Ms. Huisman said that Brunel told her that she could also have a career in film.
She said that Brunel wanted to introduce her to his & # 39; good friend the CEO of Miramax & # 39; – Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual abuse by 80 women.
Former model Svetlana Pozhidaeva, signed at MC2 – the agency that ran Brunel – was depicted in the convicted pedophile Epstein & # 39; s mansion in New York in 2016.

The Russian Mrs. Pozhidaeva, whose father is a lieutenant colonel in the Red Army, denies that it is she in the photo.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre accused Epstein of being a & # 39; sex slave & # 39; to have used. She said she was forced to have sex with famous politicians and business people, including Brunel.
She also claimed that Brunel would bring girls from the age of 12 to the United States and pass them on to his friends, including Epstein. Brunel strongly denied the allegations.
Mrs Huisman hopes that her allegations will serve as a wake-up call for the modeling world.
She said she recently told the bosses of her old modeling agency about what happened between her and Brunel, and they said, “He couldn't have done that. He would never do that. Jean-Luc, he's just too sweet. & # 39;
