Virginia Giuffre reveals Ghislaine Maxwell joked she was getting 'too old' for Epstein's taste on 16th birthday
In her manuscript, she said Maxwell said that they would have to 'trade her in' because of her age
In newly-released court documents, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a sex abuse victim of disgraced billionaire and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, claimed that Epstein's 'madam' Ghislaine Maxwell joked Giuffre was “getting too old" for Epstein as she blew out candles on her 16th birthday.
Giuffre, who has become one of the most prominent and outspoken survivors of the sex trafficking ring that was operated by Epstein, said in the manuscript for her book 'The Billionaire Playboy's Club,' which was unsealed along with other court documents by a judge in New York last week, that she was taken to the pedophile's island when she was a schoolgirl. In her manuscript, she said that Maxwell, who is accused of procuring young girls for her former lover, made the sick joke that they would have to 'trade her in'.
“I spent my sweet 16th birthday on his island in the Caribbean next to 'St James Isle'…" she wrote. “…he liked to call it Little St Jeff's, his ego was as enormous as his appetite for fornicating. I was given a birthday cake and a new collection of designer make-up from London. Ghislaine made a joke after I blew out my array of candles and said, 'I'd be soon getting too old for Jeffrey's taste, and soon they's have (sic) to trade me in."
Giuffre alleges she was groomed and abused by Epstein and Maxwell from the age of 15, although Maxwell has denied all accusations of sexual misconduct. She has claimed Epstein would pleasure himself while Maxwell allegedly abused her. In one such instance that we reported earlier, she claimed that Epstein and Maxwell were aroused by tales of her sex abuse by pedophiles to the point where they initiated a threesome with her.
Giuffre had shared her past with Maxwell and Epstein and how she was abused at the age of 13 by a 65-year-old sex trafficker, while she was homeless. "The funny thing was they didn't seem appalled at all by my statements, rather entertained if anything," she wrote. "Jeffrey called me a 'naughty-girl' with that wry smile of his, and half playful and half defensive, I answered 'no I'm not, I'm really a good girl, just always in the wrong places'. He then replied, 'It's O.K., I like naughty girls', and rolled over onto his front side to expose his complete nude self. I was incredibly shocked at his complete ease to present himself with an erection."
In the manuscript, Giuffre claimed that she turned to see Maxwell standing "bare-breasted" and before she "had a chance to even think" Maxwell began undressing her while Epstein watched. After that, she was extensively groped by the pair before Maxwell directed her to have sex with Epstein and left the room.
After Maxwell accused Giuffre of lying about her experience with the pair, the documents were filed as part of a defamation case brought by Giuffre against Maxwell in 2015. The case was settled out of court in 2017 before it reached trial. Over 2,000 pages of evidence related to the case have since been released, while around 900 court filings remained under seal or redacted. Some of the documents were released on Giuffre's request for use in separate civil lawsuits. The unsealing of five such documents, in particular, was contested by Maxwell on the grounds that they contained "extremely personal” information.
