  • Johanna Sjoberg said she met magician David Copperfield at Epstein’s house
  • She testified at a dinner Copperfield asked her if she knew girls were getting paid to find other girls

One of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged victims who claimed Prince Andrew groped her testified magician David Copperfield asked if she realized Epstein’s ‘girls’ were encouraged to procure other girls for him. 

Newly released court documents show Johanna Sjoberg said during her deposition the famous magician was having dinner at Epstein’s house when he asked if she knew other girls were getting paid to bring in new girls.

The document said: ‘David Copperfield was at a dinner at Epstein’s and there was another girl present who looked young and Johanna asked what school she went to and Johanna did not recognize the school name as being a college and she said it was possible it was a high school aged girl.’

‘Johanna said Copperfield “questioned me if I was aware that girls were getting paid to find other girls”.’

Copperfield has been a visitor to Epstein’s island, Little St James, since at least 1994, four years before the disgraced financier even purchased it from venture capitalist Arch Cummin for $8 million.  

In March of that year, Copperfield told Esquire Magazine that he proposed to supermodel Claudia Schiffer during a vacation. The illusionist claimed that he rented out the entire island for the proposal. The couple broke up in 1999 without tying the knot citing their work schedules. 

Magician David Copperfield is said to have asked an alleged trafficking victim of Jeffrey Epstein if she realised the paedophile used his ‘girls’ to procure other young women

Epstein and Maxwell trafficked underage girls to the predator's homes, where they'd be sexually abused. They also encouraged those victims to procure other children for abuse

Sjoberg said in her deposition on May 18, 2016, she met Copperfield during a dinner at Epstein’s house, although she did not say when or where the meeting took place

‘Someone called me from the house and said that he would be there, and if I wanted to come have dinner, then I could meet him,’ she said.

Sjoberg said Copperfield was not at the house when she arrived, so she waited with another she girl she had not met who seemed very young.

‘I asked her what school she went to, kind of prodding to see if she went to one of the area colleges, and I did not recognize the name of the school,’ she said.

‘So I thought she could be younger than college age, but I had to assume for my own sanity that she was a daughter of one of his friends.’

Sjoberg said Copperfield did magic tricks at the dinner and she observed him to be a friend of Epstein.

At the dinner Copperfield discussed Epstein’s involvement with young girls with Sjoberg.

‘He questioned me if I was aware that girls were getting paid to find other girls,’ she said. DailyMail.com has contacted Copperfield’s rep for a comment. 

On Wednesday, a 946-page trove of court documents from Giuffre’s 2015 lawsuit against Maxwell were unsealed – the case was settled in 2017.

Maxwell, who is  serving a 20-year prison sentence for sex trafficking, was the only person ever punished for the sex trafficking ring.

The files were made public by the Southern District of New York on January 3 after the deadline for appeals passed, around 6:30pm on Wednesday .

The explosive documents also saw Sjoberg alleged that Epstein had told her Bill Clinton ‘liked them young,’ in reference to women.

Clinton was pictured flying on Epstein’s plane, but has sought to play down his association with the disgraced late financier, who died in jail in August 2019.

A  statement issued to CNN on Wednesday evening saw Clinton claim it had been almost 20 years since he’d last seen Epstein. 

A copy of an email released Wednesday – also from Epstein – appeared to show him asking Ghislaine Maxwell to kill a claim that Professor Stephen Hawking had participated in an underage orgy at Epstein’s home. 

The brilliant English physicist, who died in 2018 aged 76, visited Epstein’s Little St James home in 2008.

He spent the final decades of his life paralysed by motor neurone disease which left him reliant on a wheelchair to move and a computer to talk.
