JEFFREY Epstein bribed a teen victim to recruit over 70 girls after losing interest when she fell pregnant, according to shocking claims that emerged last night.
The paedophile billionaire had paid the girl, 16, hundreds of dollars at a time to molest her on more than 50 occasions, she alleged.
But when she became a teen mum, the sicko stopped abusing her – and instead bribed her into finding girls for him to groom, it was claimed.
The bombshell allegations, reported by DailyMail.com, appear in court records dating back to an investigation into Epstein from 2005.
That probe by Palm Beach authorities later led to his 18-month prison sentence in 2008 – slammed by critics as a “sweetheart deal.”
Epstein was found hanged in his New York jail cell last month as he faced fresh sex trafficking charges involving children as young as 14.
The girl, named in the docs only as L.M, told how she visited Epstein’s Florida mansion more than 50 times from the age of 13.
On one occasion, she claimed the sick sex beast forced her to stand naked over him and pinch his nipples – while a girl, 12, stood nearby.
L.M. lived in a trailer with her family at the time – and explained that she used the money to buy clothes her family couldn’t afford.
But when she fell pregnant, Epstein groomed her into recruiting dozens more victims for him to abuse instead, she claims.
According to the docs, L.M. said: “I know that I brought over 70 girls. I have brought many, many girls.”
L.M. alleged that the perv financier did so because he had no interest in sexually abusing girls and women who have given birth.
Epstein bribed her into performing her new role by paying for every baby gift she had registered for, L.M’s attorney explained in the docs.
The billionaire then got one of his female staffers to drive the gifts to her home, lawyer Bradley Edwards said in one deposition.
Prosecutors reportedly decided not to peruse charges against L.M. given her struggles and the fact she appeared to have been groomed.
Epstein served just 18-months in prison – with day-release six times a week – after striking a plea deal with Florida prosecutors in 2008.
But in July he was arrested on federal sex trafficking charges after landing in Teterboro Airport in New Jersey after flying in from Paris.
An air traffic control worker told investigators how he was spotted with two girls – aged 11 and 12 – leaving a plane just a year earlier.
The 66-year-old was being held at a federal detention centre in Manhattan when he was found dead on August 10.
He died two weeks after he was placed on suicide watch when he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck.
