The blonde bombshell who took the fifth 42 times during a Jeffrey Epstein-related deposition hasn’t been at her longtime Upper East Side address for days..
A neighbourhood source told the NY Post that Nadia Marcinko, né Marcinkova, has been out of sight since almost exactly around the time the first batch of court documents involving Epstein were made public.
“I haven’t seen her in three days,” the source said.
The model-turned-pilot, once known as “Global Girl,” is one of the most mysterious and elusive characters in the Epstein saga.
Epstein reportedly called her his “sex slave.”
She spent years by his side, including jetting around on his plane — nicknamed “The Lolita Express’’ because of all the young girls he flew aboard it, according reports and court documents.
It’s never been clear, though, if she ever acted as his pilot after becoming an FAA-certified commercial pilot and flight instructor.
She’s been accused of helping to procure victims for Epstein, a claim her lawyers have denied, insisting she was only a victim.
Marcinko — who has never been charged — was granted immunity from prosecution in 2008 as part of Epstein’s non-prosecution agreement with Florida authorities.
She stayed loyal to him, visiting him at least 90 times when he was in a Florida jail.
In a 2017 video, she is shown pranking a flight instructor at a Palm Springs airport, pretending to be a nerdy, pigtail-wearing aviation student clutching a pink teddy bear who goes up in a plane with the instructor and then wows him with her aerial acrobatic prowess, doing loops and swoops high above the desert.
When she got off the plane, she shook her hair out of pigtails and looked like a high fashion model, the clip shows.
Marcinko began a career in real estate before turning to aviation. She is the CEO of Aviloop, which Wired magazine referred to as a “supremely odd aviation branding business.”
The address for Aviloop LLC is the same as Marcinko’s current address on East 66th Street — at a building that’s long been owned by Epstein’s real estate developer brother, Mark Epstein.
Marcinko’s testimony, in which she invoked her right against self-incrimination dozens of times, was revealed Friday as part of troves of documents made public this week from a since-settled 2015 defamation case that accuser Virginia Giuffre brought against Epstein madam and now-convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, 61.
