Bombshell court documents reveal details of an interview Ms Sjoberg, 42, had with lawyers on May 18, 2016.
When asked whether she had “met anybody famous” while with Epstein, she said: “I met Michael Jackson.”
Ms Sjoberg was questioned about where she met the Billie Jean singer and told lawyers: “At his house in Palm Beach. At Jeffrey’s house in Palm Beach.”
Epstein, who killed himself in 2019 while he awaited trial, used his Palm Beach mansion and several other sites to sexually abuse young girls.
Lawyers asked whether Ms Sjoberg had given Jackson a massage, but she replied: “I did not.”
No further details on the encounter or when it took place were given in the newly released documents.
The King Of Pop, who had previously been accused of paedophilia, died at the age of 50 in 2009.
The Duke of York, 63, has always denied any wrongdoing.
Ms Sjoberg’s claims come as a number of celebrities and politicians have been identified in court filings.
The Sun has seen the first set of released court files and is scouring through them for more information as more are expected to be released in days.
It comes as…
Over 150 other names are being revealed as more documents are due to come out in days
David Copperfield, Kevin Spacey and Leonardo DiCaprio are also included
Ghislaine Maxwell said Andrew DID visit Epstein’s “paedo island”
She whinged questions about Prince Andrew go “on and on” in an email
Ghislaine said under oath that she “did not recall” being in London with Virginia Giuffre and Andrew
David Copperfield, Kevin Spacey and Leonardo DiCaprio are among other famous names to appear in the court documents.
Of over 100 names in the new files, which will include emails, legal documents, depositions and more, there is no suggestion that any of those named are accused of any wrongdoing.
All of the unsealed legal information comes from the 2015 civil lawsuit filed by Ms Giuffre against Maxwell for defamation.
Names of Epstein and Maxwell’s victims, associates and alleged co-conspirators will continue to be made public as part of the document dump, according to Preska’s order.
Only Epstein and Maxwell have been charged over the alleged sexual abuse of dozens of young girls in his Upper East Side townhouse and his waterfront mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, between 2002 and 2005.
Ms Giuffre filed a defamation lawsuit in 2015 which was settled – but some of those involved in the trial were identified in the ruling through links to interviews they had previously given.
Judge Preska cited this as a reason for why their identities should not remain sealed.
She ruled there was no legal justification for continuing to conceal the names of more than 150 “John and Jane Does” mentioned in the court filings relating to Epstein.
Media sued to have the documents made public and they have been released on a rolling basis since 2019.
Wednesday’s unsealing was the eighth release from the 2015 defamation case.
Of the dozens of documents being released, 67 concern Johanna Sjoberg and relate to the defamation case brought by Ms Giuffre – who claims Andrew had sex with her when she was 17.
Ms Giuffre sued Prince Andrew in 2021 for battery and infliction of emotional distress.
They settled in February 2022 for a reported £10million, though he has always denied the allegations against him and claimed he could not recall ever meeting Ms Giuffre.
