60 Minutes Episode

From the Observer:[4][Archived Version (for information purposes, relevant section cutoff)]

The abuse goes beyond the verbal and psychological for these young women. For example: In 1988, 60 Minutes interviewed over a dozen models who said they had been sexually assaulted by Karin’s Paris agency owner Jean-Luc Brunel and fellow agent Claude Haddad. Today, Mr. Brunel owns an 85 percent stake in New York/Miami/Tel Aviv-based agency MC2, a mid-list agency with worldwide branches that have or represent models such as Ginta Lapina, Liu Dan, Sessilee Lopez, Anastasia Lagune, Eve Doll and Alina Olegnova. In 2010, the Daily Beast reported a complaint filed by an alleged victim to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida stating that Jeffery Epstein, Jean-Luc Brunel and several others “deliberately engaged in a pattern of racketeering that involved luring minor children through MC2, mostly girls under the age of 17, to engage in sexual play for money.” When I reached out to CBS asking for a transcript of copy of the two-decades-old report they replied: “The transcript for the 60 Minutes broadcast from Dec. 18, 1988, titled American Models in Paris featuring Claude Haddad and Jeanluc Brunelle cannot be released as it is on legal hold.”

The models said they were drugged and raped by Brunel.[5] "Brunel 'ranks among the sleaziest people in the fashion industry. We’re talking about a conveyor belt, not a casting couch. Hundreds of girls were not only harassed but molested.'"[6]

The episode of 60 Minutes is seemingly unavailable.

Book: Bad and Beautiful

The 2001 book, Bad and Beautiful: Inside the Dazzling and Deadly World of Supermodels, by Ian Halperin, in Chapter 26, called Straight, No Chaser, goes into great detail about the 60 Minutes interview and Brunel's horrible activities, as well as those of his business partner at the time, Claude Haddad.

Connection to Jeffrey Epstein

Sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein, made a $1 million wire transfer to Jean Luc Brunel’s offshore bank account in September 2004, just as Brunel was setting up his own MC2 modeling agency.[8]

"Perhaps most disturbing, in terms of possible sex trafficking, was Epstein’s relationship with Jean Luc Brunel, owner of the MC2 modeling agency. According to a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, an alleged victim said that Epstein, assistant and girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, Brunel, [house manager Alfredo] Rodriguez, and Marcinkova ‘deliberately engaged in a pattern of racketeering that involved luring minor children through MC2, mostly girls under the age of 17, to engage in sexual play for money.’" [9][Archived Version]
