Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex life to no longer be a secret as she loses court bid to stop release of Epstein deposition
After Epstein's death, the 'highly intrusive' court documents were kept under wraps as Maxwell argued that their release could end her ability to defend herself against charges
Ghislaine Maxwell’s sordid sex life will no longer be a secret as a court has ruled to make public “highly intrusive” documents from Jeffrey Epstein's deposition. The documents reportedly include new details of her sex life, which were originally filed by Epstein victim Virginia Roberts as part of a lawsuit against Maxwell in 2015. The British socialite was sued by Roberts, now Giuffre, five years ago for calling her a liar.
Though the lawsuit was settled three years ago, Maxwell’s arrest in July triggered the appeal of making public the documents regarding her relationship with the disgraced financier, who killed himself in August 2019 in Metropolitan Correctional Center, New York, while awaiting trial. But the documents were kept under wraps after the 58-year-old filed eleventh-hour paperwork in New York, arguing that their release could end her ability to defend herself against the charges she faces. Maxwell has been accused of pimping girls and helping Epstein in the sexual abuse of the girls, mainly teenagers, which she has denied, The Sun reported. However, on Monday, October 19, the blockage of the lawsuit documents were rejected by the US Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan.
It has been said that the files include "nude, partially nude or otherwise sexualized images, videos or other depictions of individuals". During the Monday verdict, the court also defended US District Judge Loretta Preska's decision back in August that stated that the public had a right to know the details of more than 80 documents. Giuffre has alleged that Epstein kept her as a “sex slave” and also pressurized her to have sex with Prince Andrew with Maxwell’s help. But both Epstein’s “madam” and the British family member have denied the accusations.
Earlier, this month, an ex-teen beauty queen claimed that she informed the FBI that Maxwell had been searching for “half-naked” young girls. Molly Skye Brown said that she had an encounter with Maxwell when she was just 14. “Maxwell tried to recruit me. I was 14, I was starting to get more into modeling, acting, singing and pageants with the expectation of making some scholarship money or grant money to further my education. I was working at a gym in Palm Beach county in the childcare facility. I was on the elliptical machine working out, which is by the front window. I was half-naked, a young girl with an exercise outfit on, showing my body,” she stated. “I saw Maxwell walk by and she stopped. I was the only one in there. She looked me up and down, then came into the gym, walked to the front counter and I could hear her say: ‘I’m not going to be long, I just want to talk to this girl’. She walks towards me and hands me her business card. She introduced herself, said she was a modeling scout, and asked: ‘Do I do any modeling?’ I said I did. She said: ‘Well, you have the look, how old are you?’ I told her my age and she said: ‘Oh my God, you look so much older, you could easily pass for 18’.”
But Brown said that she was not persuaded since she had a limp because of congenital hip dysplasia. “She was just a predator prowling the streets I have no doubt. I’ve now had others tell me that I’m exactly the type – I fit the bill perfectly. Another girlfriend of mine told me that Ghislaine used to come up to scout up there – she’d be roaming the shops, handing out her card. It happened regularly,” she added.
