JEFFREY Epstein spent an hour every day watching videos of naked teenagers “for inspiration” on his paedophile island, an insider has revealed.
The billionaire sex fiend ogled explicit episodes of Girls Gone Wild while pedalling on an exercise bike on private Caribbean isle Little St James – where he raped victims as young as 12.Jeffrey Epstein’s private Little St James Island was the idyllic setting for sickening rape and abuse[/caption] The billionaire pervert hosted VIP guests there with his companion Ghislaine Maxwell[/caption]
Epstein – who reportedly demanded sex three times a day – was said to have been “transfixed” by the videos of college girls flashing their breasts in nightclubs.
He leered over the footage while working out in his 3,000ft gym on the island because it was “inspiration” for him, a guest who spent time on the island told DailyMail.com.
The insider also told how the paradise island seemed like a “dream come true” as Epstein surrounded himself with a bevy of young women.
Guests were housed in luxury bungalows like five-star hotels and treated to meals prepared by Epstein’s private chef.
And an army of full-time staff catered to his VIP guests’ every whim as they relaxed by swimming, hiking, snorkelling and jet skiiing.
The source said: “On one side of the spectrum it was paradise and idyllic.
“But then on the opposite spectrum the dark side was just as extreme.”
‘JEKYLL AND HYDE’
The insider also recalled of Epstein: “I have never met such a self-assured confident person in my life and it was rightfully so because he was so powerful and he knew it.
“He was on top of the world. He exuded a level of confidence and security in himself. It was a little bit intimidating.
“He didn’t feel the need to prove himself to anybody.
“He was very pensive, quiet, almost playful like a child. Seeing him liaising with his guests it was hard to believe he was this Jekyll and Hyde character.”
Girls as young as 12 suffered horrific abuse after being trafficked to Epstein’s private retreat – dubbed “paedophile island” and “orgy island” by horrified locals.
One victim has told how she was raped up to three times a day for five months and was so desperate to escape she tried to swim across shark-infested waters.
Sarah Ransome, from South Africa, said: “A shark would have been my best friend at that point. I didn’t even think about it – it was just, get me away.”Epstein watched explicit videos for ‘inspiration’ on his private island, an insider revealed[/caption] Epstein’s guests were hosted in five-star luxury, but it was also where he raped and abused his victims[/caption] Rape victim Sarah Ransome said she swam through shark-infested waters trying to escape[/caption]
Some of Epstein’s female companions have been accused of participating in his sex trafficking ring.
At his side when he stayed on the island was his personal assistant Sarah Kellen – dubbed Ghislaine Maxwell’s “lieutenant”.
The insider told DailyMail.com: “Jeffrey was always up before everyone else, drinking coffee.
“He would be taking notes, in his robe every morning, writing down ideas, making phone calls, calling the office.
“Most of the daily life was spontaneous but Sarah was always by his side. She was his shadow.
“Anything that he remembered throughout the day, she took notes and managed his life.”
Kellen, now 41, worked for Epstein for ten years but denies she helped procure victims.
Her parents have told of their fears she will be the next person arrested by FBI agents after Maxwell was taken into custody.
Another fixture on the island for a while was model Nadia Marcinkova.
The insider said: “Nadia and Jeffrey seemed to really love each other. It was as if they had a romantic relationship.
“They were affectionate to each other, often holding hands.”
