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 remarked: ‘Can we be clear, I didn’t threaten anybody.’
The combative Maxwell continually denied all wrongdoing. 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, but insisted 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, claims that he vehemently denied.
