Ghislaine Maxwell Abused Minors on Epstein's 'Pedophile Island,' Unsealed Docs Claim
Newly unsealed court documents reveal she had 'continuous' orgies with underage girls
Ghislaine Maxwell sexually abused a "blur" of "so many" underage girls on child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein's "Pedophile Island," newly-unsealed court documents have alleged.
Maxwell had "continuous" orgies with kids as young as 15 on the notorious private Caribbean island owned by deceased sex offender Epstein, according to the docs.
The shocking claim is revealed within a testimony given to investigators during a 2015 libel case against Maxwell by Epstein's primary accuser, Virginia Roberts.
After Maxwell agreed to settle the case out of court, the documents were put under lock and key.
However, they have now been unsealed under a judge's order after her arrest earlier this month on child sex trafficking charges.
During her testimony, Roberts - now Giuffre - says Maxwell and Epstein participated in orgies all over the island with underage girls and young women who were flown in by private jet to participate.
"There were blondes, there were brunettes, there were redheads," Roberts testified.
"They were all beautiful girls. I would say the ages ranged between 15 and 21.
"One occasion stands out," she said.
"Models were — I think they were models — were flown in.
"There were orgies held outside by the pool."
The women did not speak English, and conversed in a European language that Roberts guessed was Russian or Czech.
Describing the sex session, she added: "Ghislaine, myself, Jeffrey, another girl in this blue, outdoor — I don’t know what you want to call it... Cabana, that … just a bed could fit in."
Roberts also alleges that during the deposition that she was trafficked to Europe to have sex with powerful men, including Britain's Prince Andrew and attorney Alan Dershowitz.
She said Maxwell and Epstein constantly reminded her of how powerful their friends were so that she wouldn't betray them.
"Jeffrey did a lot more of that than she did," she said.
"But she definitely made it aware that we shouldn’t cross boundaries with them."
Roberts gave the testimony to investigators after filing a lawsuit against Maxwell in 2015, accusing the British socialite of libel after she branded her a "liar."
Maxwell eventually settled the suit out of court for an undisclosed sum, thought to be millions, and the documents were put under seal so they could not be made public.
But Judge Loretta Preska ordered swathes of the papers to be unsealed following Maxwell's arrest earlier this month on sex crimes charges.
She is also charged with perjury for allegedly lying under oath during a seven-hour deposition she made during the lawsuit.
On Thursday, Maxwell filed an emergency motion with the federal appeals court in Manhattan to block the release of that deposition, along with one other document.
Lawyers for Maxwell said making her deposition public could make it "difficult if not impossible" to find an impartial jury for her criminal trial.
The two depositions, and materials that quote from or disclose information contained in them, were expected to remain sealed at least until Monday, depending on how the appeals court rules.
Materials covered by Preska's July 23 order included flight logs from Epstein's private jets; and police reports from Palm Beach, Florida, where Epstein had a home, among other documents.
Maxwell, 58, has pleaded not guilty to helping Epstein recruit and eventually abuse three girls from 1994 to 1997, and committing perjury by denying her involvement under oath.
She was arrested on July 2 and has been housed in a Brooklyn jail after a judge called her a flight risk.
Maxwell's trial is scheduled for next July.
Epstein was found hanged at age 66 last August in a Manhattan jail while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges for abusing women and girls in Manhattan and Florida from 2002 to 2005.
He had also pleaded not guilty.
