A Hollywood ‘guru to the stars’ has described giving a massage to Prince Andrew inside the ‘weird and creepy’ mansion of convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Gypsy Gita, 70, who worked for the billionaire from 2001 to 2005, claims he met Andrew on three occasions and massaged him twice.
He described the Prince as being ‘aloof’, adding: ‘I didn’t know who Andrew was. Most Americans, at least until recently, wouldn’t have a clue who he is.
‘I found him a bit strange, arrogant, ‘off’ in some way I couldn’t put my finger on. He was aloof and odd.’
Mr Gita, a Native American spiritual healer who has worked with celebrities including US President Donald Trump and actress Minnie Driver, was introduced to Epstein and his alleged ‘madam’ Ghislaine Maxwell when Trump passed his phone number on.
He described walking into Epstein’s £55 million home in Manhattan as like entering ‘a weird, warped world’, adding: ‘It was creepy. Once you went through the big front doors there was a desk you checked in at and then you turned left to go to the sitting room where visitors waited.
‘There was this huge wall of prosthetic eyeballs. There must have been 150 at least. Jeffrey would say: ‘Don’t forget you are being watched at all times.’
He said that Epstein – who killed himself in prison last year while being held on multiple child sex charges – always wore a ‘uniform’.
‘I massaged him a multiple times and he would always wear sweatshirts which said either Harvard or Yale on them,’ he said. Epstein went to neither, but was a donor to both.
Mr Gita added: ‘He always had this smirk on his face, like he was the smartest guy in the room. I’ve been around celebrities and billionaires who have Monets on their walls so I wasn’t awestruck by him. I just thought he was weird.
‘I always worked on him in the upstairs massage room.’
It was in this room that women, including Andrew’s accuser Virginia Roberts, say they were abused.
Andrew – who was seen yesterday whistling nonchalantly as he drove out of Windsor Castle – has vehemently and repeatedly denied Ms Roberts’s accusations and any suggestion of wrongdoing.
Father-of-two Mr Gita insists that he was never aware of any underage girls at Epstein’s properties. ‘If I’d been aware of him abusing children he’d be dead,’ he said.
He bitterly regrets introducing women into Epstein’s orbit. As The Mail on Sunday revealed last week, Chauntae Davies claims she was trafficked as a sex slave after Mr Gita introduced her to Ms Maxwell.
‘Chauntae was a trainee masseuse working for me and Ghislaine offered her a full-time job. I had no idea she ended up in such a terrible situation,’ he said.
Mr Gita also claims that he massaged Andrew again at Ms Maxwell’s New York townhouse:
‘She had her own massage room and I worked on Andrew there. He had bad body posture.’
He says he stopped working for Epstein when Ms Maxwell made what he considered to be a veiled threat.
‘She said: ‘You’re going to start hearing things about Jeffrey and I want you to know none of it’s true.’
When I hesitated, she said: ‘I know you have two daughters.’ That scared me. I’d never told her or Jeffrey about my family and it felt like a threat. I never went back.’
Ms Maxwell is awaiting trial on charges of procuring underage girls for sex and perjury. She denies all the charges. Representatives for Prince Andrew last night declined to comment.
