Giuffre alleges that Maxwell sexually abused her “on a regular basis,” and did the same to multiple other girls over the years.
“She’s the one that procured me, told me what to do, trained me as a sex slave, abused me physically, abused me mentally,” the deposition reads. “She’s the one who I believe, in my heart of hearts, deserves to come forward and have justice happen to her more than anybody.”
None of the allegations have been proven in court, and Maxwell denies any wrongdoing.
In a police interview, Giuffre said Epstein constantly boasted about the age of girls he sexually abused. In one case, Giuffre recalled Epstein bragging about flying in three 12-year-old girls from France, and said it was a “surprise birthday gift.”
Giuffre claimed that Epstein spoke often about powerful people owing him favours, including former U.S. President Bill Clinton, whom she said visited Epstein’s residence on Little St. James island in 2011.
Giuffre previously claimed Epstein instructed her to have sex with Britain’s Prince Andrew, when she was 17. She said in her deposition that “he (meaning Andrew) would know a lot of the truth.”
At her bail hearing this month, Maxwell claimed that she hadn’t been in contact with Epstein in over 10 years. But the court documents reveal, however, that they sent each other several emails in 2015.
In one email exchange, Epstein told Maxwell that, “You have done nothing wrong” and urged her to “start acting like it.” Another email from Epstein included what appears to be a written statement for Maxwell denying any involvement in his affairs.
