Kaufman claimed she was approached a year prior to her meeting with Epstein by a woman named Susan Hamblin, a person who has been named in court documents and listed in Epstein’s alleged leaked “black book” of contacts.

“It’s been difficult the past few months,” 27-year-old shared, revealing that she has osteomyelitis, a rare and serious bone disease. She said she got it as a result of Epstein allegedly hitting her in the face during the sexual assault.(RELATED: Bill Clinton Spokesman Says Former President ‘Never’ Went To Jeffrey Epstein’s Pedo Island, Despite Accuser’s Statements)
Last year, Caroline filed suit against him, but put things on pause as she applied to the victim’s fund, which was given a total of $87 million.
However, Kaufman said Epstein’s estate is estimated to be more than $600 million, which she is going after for her surgery but also to “start a charity and give money to other victims out there.”
“The girls who have come forward have made a difference to my life, without them I thought I’d die without ever telling anybody,” Caroline said.
“I was going to go with the fund but the offer was too low, it’s not enough to cover surgery, I’m quite offended by the offer,” the woman added. “The amount of money the fund had, I don’t believe it was distributed fairly. We’re going to go ahead and go to court.
“The jaw issue is caused by an injury in the past, and when I had an encounter with Epstein he pinned me down and went to grab my arm,” Kaufman continued. “He forced my arm and as he did that he nicked my jaw, it’s the only thing I can think of [which has caused this]. I didn’t tell anyone at the time because I didn’t want to explain what happened.”
