Virginia Roberts Giuffre claimed Ghislaine Maxwell sexually abused underage girls as young as 15 years old, according to 600 pages of documents newly unsealed on Thursday night. Giuffre, who previously said she was recruited into Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring by Maxwell as a teenager, also alleged Maxwell and Epstein pressured her into being sexually abused by numerous powerful men, including Prince Andrew, defense attorney Alan Dershowitz, and U.S. politicians, among others. Both the prince and Dershowitz have denied these accusations.
The documents were ordered unsealed on July 23 by U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska and stem from a defamation suit Maxwell previously settled in 2017 with Giuffre, who claimed Maxwell recruited her into Epstein’s circle as a teenager to work as a traveling masseuse. Maxwell would send Giuffre to be sexually abused by men under the guise of giving them a massage, Giuffre said. “I think there are plenty of other witnesses that can attest to what massage actually means. And I’m telling you that Ghislaine told me to…give him a massage, which means sex”.
In newly unsealed sworn testimony, which Giuffre gave in 2016, she described Maxwell and Epstein working as a team. “You have to understand that [Epstein] and [Maxwell] are joined at the hip, okay?” said Giuffre. “They trafficked me to many people. And to be honest, there is people I could name, and then there’s people that are just a blur. There was so much happening.” Later in her testimony, Giuffre said Maxwell “trained me as a sex slave,” and added, “she’s the one who abused me [physically and mentally] on a regular basis”.
