Ghislaine Maxwell, the alleged former madam of the late billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, is begging a federal judge this week not to unseal a deposition that contains “embarrassing” details about her sex life.
OK! Magazine reported that one of Maxwell’s attorneys submitted a memorandum to the court on Monday arguing that the deposition “is full of ‘personal information which might lead to annoyance or embarrassment if unsealed.’”
Maxwell is currently in prison awaiting trial on various charges related to her grooming young girls for sex with Epstein, and sometimes participating in the abuse herself. It is the women who have accused Maxwell of abusing them as well who want to see the unsealing of the deposition, in which “the only authorized questions were eight topics that either ‘related to [Ms. Maxwell’s] own sexual activity’ or ‘her knowledge of the sexual activity of others.’”
Maxwell has tried and failed to keep various other depositions detailing her sex life sealed. The most recent deposition to be unsealed was that of Epstein’s former butler John “Juan” Alessi, who claimed to have seen Maxwell taking photos of underage girls.
“I know that she went out and took pictures in the pool, because later I would see them at the desk or at the house; and nude, 99.9 percent of the time they were topless,” Alessi testified.
Though he admitted to not having spoken to Maxwell in a decade, he recalled where the British socialite kept the phots that she snapped of these girls.
“Yes, there was an album, because I knew, when I clean out the desk, I have to put everything in the house back together,” Alessi said. “Sometimes I saw these albums, and there were pictures of girls at the pool.”
These depositions stem from when Maxwell was sued by Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre back in 2015 for defamatory statements she made in the press. Giuffre has long claimed that she was Epstein’s “sex slave,” and that she was abused by both him and Maxwell. She has also alleged that she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew, a former friend of Maxwell’s, on three occasions.
Epstein killed himself in prison last year while awaiting trial on various sex charges of his own. Maxwell, 58, was arrested this past July and was remanded to prison until trial after a judge deemed her to pose a significant flight risk given her immense wealth and international connections. Her trial has been scheduled to begin in July of 2021.
