A top model known as the "Russian Rapunzel" jumped to death two years after being one of the teen girls flown to Jeffrey Epstein's private island, according to newly unsealed court documents.

Ruslana Korshunova was an up-and-coming model in the mid-2000s – who appeared in ads for Marc Jacobs, DKNY, and Vera Wang. Korshunova was the face of Nina Ricci perfume and was featured on the covers of French Elle and Russian Vogue. She worked with the elite modeling agency IMG – which features top models Heidi Klum and Kate Moss.

However, Korshunova was also involved with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, according to recently unsealed court docs.

At age 18, Korshunova flew on Epstein's private aircraft known as the Lolita Express on June 7, 2006, flight logs show. Also on the flight was Epstein; his bodyguard, Igor Zinoviev; his personal chef, Lance Calloway; his longtime assistant, Sarah Kellen; a woman; and an unidentified former UFC fighter.

The private jet transported Korshunova to Epstein's private island – Little St. James in the Caribbean.

The next month, Epstein would be arrested by the Palm Beach Police Department on felony charges of procuring a minor for prostitution and solicitation of a prostitute.

Korshunova – born in Almaty, Kazakhstan – would commit suicide two years after visiting the so-called "Pedophile Island."

In June 2008, a 20-year-old Korshunova leaped to her death in New York City.

She reportedly cut a hole in construction mesh covering the ninth-floor balcony of her apartment at Water Street in the Financial District of Manhattan. The top model then killed herself by jumping off the balcony.

Her ex-boyfriend told the New York Post at the time that Korshunova kept her problems "bottled up."

"I think she just gave up,” said Artem Perchenok. "When a job would go bad, she’d take it out on herself."

Perchenok said Korshunova told her manager that "she didn’t know what to do with her life."

The boyfriend said that Korshunova had lost a lot of weight in the month before her death.

Two months before her death, the model wrote on social media, "I'm so lost. Will I ever find myself?"

Korshunova was also allegedly a member of the Rose of the World group – a controversial "self-help" organization that is often described as a "cult."

The Sydney Morning Herald reported in 2014, "The Rose of the World was a group founded in the U.S. in the 1970s but was closed in the 1980s. It still has several branches operating around the world, including Russia. Members pay about $1,200 for a three-day course to undergo 'dehumanizing' treatments. Training sessions reportedly involve coaches asking participants to share their worst experiences and encourage them to take the blame for all the negative aspects of their lives."

Journalist Peter Pomerantsev claims Korshunova and her friend – fellow Russian model Anastasia Drozdova – became members of the Rose of the World group. Both models would go on to kill themselves.

Drozdova also leaped to her death from the top of an apartment building in Kyiv in 2009.
