Former KPMG director, 69, linked to Jeffrey Epstein madam Ghislaine Maxwell 'groomed a 14-year-old model to be his slave and subjected her to sadomasochistic sex and dungeons'

A New York City corporate executive with ties to Jeffrey Epstein madam Ghislaine Maxwell allegedly began grooming a 14-year-old girl to be his sex slave over the course of more than 20 years, according to a lawsuit.
Douglas Graham, 69, is being sued by Nikki Henry, a 38-year-old former model who alleges that she was subjected to years of abuse that started when she was just a teen.
Henry alleges that she was just 14 and Graham was 45 years old when he began a relationship with her after modeling event in Union Square, according to the New York Post.
Graham has denied the allegations, claiming that he started dating Henry when she was in her twenties. He called the lawsuit ‘clearly slanderous.’

She claims that Graham subjected her to violent sexual encounters that included ‘sadomasochistic sex’ and ‘dungeons.’
Henry says that the relationship continued for decades until it ended fairly recently.
She told the Post that her experience with Graham left her so scarred that she has never had children or gotten married.
Henry alleges that she was holed up at the couple’s Manhattan apartment for weeks at a time as Graham would isolate her from the outside world.
‘All I have now is fear,’ she told the Post.
Henry said that Graham had a close relationship with the late British media mogul Robert Maxwell, who was Ghislaine Maxwell’s father.
Graham ‘refined his appetites … through his friendship with Maxwell and his entourage which included Ghislaine,’ the lawsuit alleges.

Henry alleges that Graham, who was managing director of the international auditing firm KPMG, used company credit cards to procure underage girls.
She filed her lawsuit earlier this month under New York State’s Child Victims Act, a newly enacted law that grants a one-year window for alleged victims of crimes that took place when they were children to seek damages.
Graham, who lives in Connecticut, claims that Henry was abusive toward him. He alleges that he repeatedly called the police on Henry.
He says he needed to get the courts to issue several orders of protection against her.
‘This current accusation that she is making is simply a continuation of the harassment process,’ he told the Post.
Epstein, 66, died by hanging himself in his Manhattan jail cell on August 10.
He was set to stand trial in Manhattan federal court for sex trafficking of minors.
Maxwell, Epstein’s longtime confidante, is alleged to have helped procure underage girls who were then raped and abused by Epstein.

Maxwell is one of four women named in a lawsuit filed by one of Epstein’s alleged victims, Jennifer Araoz.
Araoz, 32, alleges that Epstein began grooming her for sex when she was 14 and later raped her.
She recently expanded her lawsuit against his estate, naming Maxwell; Lesley Groff, a former secretary; Cimberly Espinosa, a former executive assistant; and Rosalyn Fontanilla, a former maid who died in October 2016.
Araoz wants ‘justice not just against Mr. Epstein’s estate, but the network of enablers that surrounded him, and the network of corporate interests that surrounded him,’ her lawyer Daniel Kaiser told reporters on a conference call.
‘Every penny of his estate should be available to satisfy the claims of victims,’ he added.
Epstein died two days after signing a will and putting his estimated $577million estate into a trust.
