A scathing and massive $27 million lawsuit was just filed on behalf of three Florida models against a former top investment fund manager for George Soros. Howard ‘Howie’ Rubin, 62—who was featured in Liar’s Poker, a book described as ‘defining Wall St.’—is accused of rape, assault, kidnapping, and human trafficking.
The women in the lawsuit, two of which are former Playboy bunnies, accuse Rubin of operating an $8 million penthouse in Manhattan which contains a secret “dungeon of sex toys, masks, and BDSM apparatus.” In this penthouse, according to the lawsuit, the women would be imprisoned while Rubin had his violent way with them. According to the lawsuit, Rubin would lure the girls to New York on JetBlue flights after connecting with them on Instagram. Once they arrived in Manhattan, Rubin would drug them, gag and bound them, and then violently beat and rape them while in his sex dungeon. The lawsuit states that he hit a woman so hard that she passed out as he demanded she call him “daddy.” “I’m going to rape you like I rape my daughter,” he would say according to two of the alleged victims. He would then attack and punch them so violently and aggressive, that one of his blows “flipped” a woman’s breast implant. As the Mail reports, they say he then covered up the alleged rapes and attacks and hushed them by paying them up to $5,000 each. According to the Mail:
Rubin, a notorious Wall Street trader who is blamed for incurring $377million of losses at Merrill Lynch in 1987 and who is featured in Liar’s Poker, has not yet responded to their allegations. He is named alongside associated Stephanie Shon, Jennifer Powers, and lawyer Yifat Schnur in the lawsuit.
Rubin has been married since the 1980s to his former Harvard Business School classmate Mary Henry. They have three children together.
The lawsuit describes four different incidents in 2016. The women sometimes traveled to meet him in pairs and on other occasions they went alone, they said.
According to the lawsuit, Rubin’s associates Stephanie Shon and Jennifer Powers—a former model who claimed to have slept with Rubin—acted as recruiters for the man’s sadistic plan. The models were offered thousands of dollars and given posh treatment and plane tickets to New York in exchange for their ‘companionship’ with Ruben.
“Shon indicated that she worked for Howard Rubin, and that Rubin, who had seen images of her on Instagram, would like to meet her in New York. While Shon initially identified Rubin by name, she then insisted that the woman refer to him only as “H” so as to protect Rubin’s identity,” the lawsuit reads. “Powers assured her that Rubin was “a great guy,” and would not do anything to make her feel uncomfortable. Powers told her that if she ever felt uncomfortable she could simply ask to leave, and would not only be allowed to do so, but would still be paid the initial $2,000 for her time,” it continues. Once their planes landed, they were forced to sign non-disclosure agreements before they were allowed to meet the billionaire.
The women then met Rubin at a nearby bar for dinner and drinks where they were drugged, beat, and raped before he would leave them “to go home to his wife and kids,” the lawsuit states. The victims were often beaten so badly that they required medical treatment. According to the lawsuit, they were given more money and their medical bills paid in exchange for their silence.
In one instance in December 2016, Rubin allegedly attacked another of the women with a cattle prod while she visited him by herself. He raped her with the prod, then with a dildo and finally raped him herself, she claimed. The women claim in the lawsuit that they returned because they were afraid of what he may do to them if they did not appear to appease him. Source:
