A Chinese immigrant has accused a wealthy Upper East Side racist couple of luring her into their Fifth Avenue home with promises of a better life — only to force her into years of manual labor, sexual abuse and even extortion.
Hongxia Wang of Flushing, Queens, claims fibromyalgia doctor Derek Enlander and his now-deceased diamond-dealer wife, Caron Enlander, promised her $80 an hour for spa treatments and massages when she was making just $45 a day at a nail and hair salon. But instead of paying Wang, the diabolical Enlanders subjected her to years of forced labor and sexual abuse that lasted until 2011, according her Manhattan federal-court lawsuit.
In addition to being a “slave” who washed their dishes, cleaned their boat and made their lunches, Wang says the racist Enlanders also coerced her into sex, the suit says.
Wang claims she was Caron’s lover from 2000 to 2003. Caron died in 2006, and Derek Enlander began forcing himself on her starting in 2007, the lawsuit says.
Wang, 57, is seeking damages in an amount to be determined a trial.
“Dr. Enlander refutes the allegations and we are confident he will be vindicated,” said his lawyer, Tom Mullaney.
Wang says she stayed with the evil Enlanders despite the abuse because they kept promising to pay her the money they owed her and to help her obtain a green card.
