A Jeffrey Epstein survivor said she’s happier to see alleged madame Ghislaine Maxwell behind bars than she was when she learned that the convicted pedophile who molested her was dead, according to a new clip released by the Dr. Oz show.
Haley Robson, 34, is set to appear on an episode of the talk show Thursday where she’ll discuss Maxwell and Epstein’s recruiting system and how she feels about Maxwell’s arrest.
“I do feel that I’m happier that she’s been arrested, more so than Jeffrey being dead. More so because it’s very unusual to see a woman that if indeed all the accusations are correct, which I believe they are,” Robson told Oz in a preview of the upcoming episode.
“I’ve heard a lot of the other victims’ testimonies, which are very sad. It breaks my heart. I’m a victim and this woman — to have her help a male pedophile rape and molest and groom little girls — it’s just unusual to see a woman portray this position, especially when it comes to kids.”
When Robson was 16-years-old and growing up in South Florida, she was recruited by a friend to give massages to Epstein wearing nothing but a thong. She rejected his sexual advances but then allegedly started acting as a recruiter where she was paid to find new girls for him, according to a deposition from a 2009 civil suit.
Robson herself was investigated for her role in recruiting victims for Epstein when he was originally arrested back in 2007 but a grand jury declined to indict her.
In Thursday’s episode, Robson will explain how the recruiting worked.
“You were 16 years old. You’re put in the situation that even as a mature woman, it’s hard to navigate. You go home and you’ve been offered $200 to recruit young women and girls actually, the way you were recruited by your friend. Did you decide to bring girls, offer them the opportunity of going to Epstein’s house? How many? How did that work?” Oz asks Robson in a preview of the episode.
“At that point, I had a couple of girlfriends that ended up saying, ‘Hey, listen, I want to go to Jeffrey’s, I’ll work. Can you bring me?’ I did,” Robson answered.
“Actually my lawyer and I sat down and went over all the females that I had brought. Originally I thought I had brought in more. But when we got down to it and really dissected how many girls I brought, I had brought in eight girls. Of course, at that point, the girls that I had brought to Jeffrey Epstein’s house brought other girls underneath them to Jeffrey’s house as well.”
Maxwell, 58, is being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn on charges of conspiring with Epstein to sexually abuse young women.
Epstein, 66, was found dead in his Manhattan lockup in August 2019 while facing a slew of sex trafficking charges.
