A teenage girl who was allegedly trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein has been seen in photos at Naomi Campbell’s birthday party in 2001.
Virginia Roberts, who has accused Epstein of abuse, was seen on a yacht in the French Riviera during the model’s birthday bash, reported the New York Post.
Roberts, who was 17, was seen wearing a pink crop top and shiny pants alongside Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s longtime girlfriend who allegedly recruited her.

Campbell was also seen in the photos, and she was celebrating her 31st birthday with her then-boyfriend Flavio Briatore.
“It was a fun bash, the entire crowd sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Naomi and by the time we got back in the car to retreat for the night I was giddy from drinking and dancing all evening,” Roberts said of the event, according to the Daily Mail.
At the same party were Brazilian footballer Ronaldo and Irish businessman Eddie Jordan, according to the photos posted by the tabloid.

A photo of Roberts shows her wearing a similar crop top as she poses next to Prince Andrew and Maxwell in London. The photo was unveiled as part of court documents that were unsealed as part of Giuffre’s defamation lawsuit against Maxwell.
Andrew is seen with his hand around her waist. According to the Mail, the picture was shot during a party in London in 2001.
In the documents, Roberts claimed that she was “trafficked” to Andrews. Lawyers said that she, Maxwell, and Epstein flew to London on Epstein’s private plane, according to the Washington Post.
“There is no other reasonable explanation why an American child should be in the company of adults not her kin, in the London house owned by the girlfriend of a now convicted sex offender,” the lawyers said, referring to the photo.
The prince denied the allegations against him, saying claims of “impropriety with underage minors” are “categorically untrue,” the Mail reported.
Maxwell has also denied any wrongdoing in the case.
A spokesperson for Campbell said she didn’t have a close relationship with Epstein or Maxwell.
U.S. Attorney General William Barr criticized “serious irregularities” at the federal prison where Epstein died in an apparent suicide, adding that the sex-trafficking investigation involving the disgraced financier would continue.
Epstein was found dead on Saturday after he apparently hanged himself in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in lower Manhattan. The 66-year-old was arrested on July 6 and pleaded not guilty on sex trafficking charges.
“I was appalled, and indeed the whole department was, and, frankly, angry,” Barr said, speaking at an event in New Orleans. He called it a “failure to adequately secure this prisoner.”
“We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation. The FBI and the Office of Inspector General are doing just that,” Barr added.
“We will get to the bottom of what happened and there will be accountability. But let me assure you this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice, and they will get it,” he added.
