Ghislaine Maxwell’s 418-page deposition about sex life made PUBLIC

News Today || Headlines Today

Ghislaine Maxwell admitted she had an intimate relationship with Jeffrey Epstein in a bombshell 2016 deposition released today, but refused to discuss their sex life as she dodged questions about orgies, underage girls and Prince Andrew. 

The 418-page document was released Thursday morning after Maxwell’s attorneys fought tooth and nail to keep the deposition private. It stems from a defamation lawsuit brought against Maxwell from Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre.   

Over the course of the heated deposition, Maxwell repeatedly lashed out against Giuffre’s lawyers, tried to object to questioning and at one point pounded her fist on the table.

After the fit, she said: ‘Can we be clear, I didn’t threaten anybody.’

She refused to answer questions about her sex life with Epstein, denied she participated in orgies and rebuffed questions about underage girls, including a 13-year-old, being in Epstein’s home.

The 58-year-old became agitated and refused to answer a simple question of whether she believed it is psychologically harmful for an adult to have sex with a minor. 

‘What are you asking me? I don’t know what you are asking,’ Maxwell responded. ‘This has nothing to do with Virginia Roberts.’ 

She denied taking nude photos of Epstein’s victims, insisting that every photo she took was by request and would have been ‘mainstream type magazine photos’ that ‘could have been very happily and expected to be displayed on your parents’ mantel piece or grandparents’ mantel piece’. 

President Bill Clinton and Britain’s Prince Andrew were also brought up during the conversation, with Maxwell profusely denying Clinton had been to Epstein’s ‘pedo’ island. 

She also skirted questions about Giuffre’s claim that Prince Andrew used a Spitting Image puppet to grope her in Epstein’s New York home. Giuffre has claimed she was instructed to have sex with Prince Andrew multiple times, which he has vehemently denied.

Maxwell is currently in jail awaiting trial on charges that she lured girls as young as 14 years old for Epstein to abuse between 1994 and 1997. 

New York prosecutors claim she perjured herself in her deposition, when she was asked if Epstein had ‘a scheme to recruit underage girls for sexual massages’. 

Maxwell flatly said: ‘I don’t know what you are talking about.’   

Over the course of the lengthy videotaped deposition, Maxwell refused to answer a majority of the questions pertaining to her own sexual activity, as well as Epstein’s. 

When asked if Epstein had a ‘sexual preference for underage minors’, Maxwell responded: ‘I cannot tell you what Jeffrey’s story is. I’m not able to.’ 

The well-coached Maxwell was cagey throughout and claimed she couldn’t recall events and interactions from even five years ago. 

When asked if she had latex sex costumes or a laundry basket of sex toys in Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion, Maxwell said: ‘I don’t recollect anything that would formally be a dildo.’ 

Maxwell’s lawyer objected to lines of questioning frequently, at one point advising his client not to answer if she’d ever engaged in sex with a woman.   

The disgraced British socialite took several opportunities to bash Giuffre, saying at one point she is an ‘awful fantasist’ who created a ‘tissue of lies’.

Maxwell lashed out after being asked if calling a sexual abuse victim a liar is harmful.  

She ranted: ‘I would like to say all the terrible things Virginia Roberts said about me is extremely harmful and you should turn that around. All the lies she has said and you have backed her on have been extremely damaging to me’. 

Maxwell did admit that she encouraged girls to perform massages because, she said, they’d earn more money and that it was ‘career advice’, but denied ever having ‘non-consensual sex’ with anyone.

She also claimed she had never been in the room with Virginia when Epstein was receiving a massage from her or any other girl ‘under the age of 18’.

She also skirted questions about Giuffre's claim that Prince Andrew used a Spitting Image puppet to grope her in Epstein's New York home. Giuffre has claimed she was instructed to have sex with Prince Andrew multiple times, which he has vehemently denied

At one stage, she was asked if she’d ever seen Epstein around young girls, to which she replied: ‘I have friends who have children.’

Maxwell – who dated Epstein in the 1990s – refused to answer when asked if he liked having his nipples pinched, saying she would not discuss any of their sex life.

She defended her work for him, saying: ‘There were six homes. As I sit here, I hired assistants, I hired architects, I hired decorators, I hired cooks, I hired cleaners, I hired gardeners, I hired pool people, I hired pilots, I hired all sorts of people.

‘In the course and a very small part of my job was from time to time to find adult professional massage therapists for Jeffrey.

‘From time to time I would visit professional spas, I would receive a massage and if the massage was good I would ask that man or woman if they did home visits.’

She routinely denied raping Virginia or any other person, saying: ‘I have never had non-consensual sex with anybody. I just testified I never had non-consensual sex with anybody, ever , at any time, any place, at any time, with anybody.’

When asked if she’d ‘trained’ Virginia on how to perform sexual massages, she replied: ‘’No and it’s absurd and her entire story is one giant tissue of lies and furthermore, she herself has- if she says that – you have to ask her about what she did.’

Ghislaine admitted to visiting a university with the goal of recruiting employees for Epstein. While she said she couldn’t recall which university it was, she said she visited it twice. 

Maxwell’s lawyers have previously said releasing the deposition would prejudice her right to a fair trial. 

In their ruling the judges said that ‘we cannot conclude that the district court abused its discretion in ordering the unsealing of the deposition materials’.

The ruling said: ‘The District Court correctly held that the deposition materials are judicial documents to which the presumption of public access attaches and did not abuse its discretion in rejecting Maxwell’s meritless arguments that her interests superseded the presumption of access.

Maxwell, 58, is being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn as she awaits trial on sex trafficking charges

‘The District Court’s order articulated and applied the correct legal framework in its individualized review of the materials to be unsealed’.

The deposition stems from Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s defamation case against the former British socialite. 

She is an Epstein victim who claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew, allegations he denies, and that Maxwell groomed her.

Maxwell settled the defamation case in 2017 but media organizations applied to have the documents in the case made public and they are being released on a rolling basis.

Giuffre’s lawyer David Boies said he was ‘pleased’ with the judges’ decision.

He said: ‘It is an important step towards vindicating the public interest in understanding the scope and scale of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring and the efforts made to conceal it’.

Boies was one of the lawyers who took the deposition in 2016 which led to two perjury charges for which Maxwell is also accused.

The ruling is the latest legal setback against Maxwell, who was arrested in July and is seen by many of Epstein’s victims as his right hand woman.

During a hearing last week Maxwell’s attorney Adam Mueller said that the release of a document so central to one of prosecutors’ six charges in her criminal case could prejudice a jury.

Mueller said that the deposition ‘should never have been filed’ to the case and the arguments for releasing it ‘don’t pass muster’
