Ghislaine Maxwell allegedly enjoyed snapping topless photos of young girls as a “hobby,” and she had a collection of extreme sex toys, according to the late billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s former butler.
This was revealed by Juan Alessi (who spent years working as Epstein’s butler) in court documents that were unsealed in 2018.
“[Ghislaine Maxwell] had an album full of photographs of people, young girls, girls. And I remember that she had. Like a hobby,” Alessi stated in his 2016 deposition. “It was some girls were topless, taking the sun.”
This deposition was given in a lawsuit filed by Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who was suing Maxwell for defamation after the 58-year-old British socialite claimed she was lying about being abused.
In his deposition, Alessi also claimed to have found several extreme sex toys in Epstein’s Palm Beach, Florida mansion, indicating the toys (including a double-ended dildo) belonged to Maxwell.
“I would find things like a dildo, it’s called a double,” Alessi said, according to The Sun. “I hate to say it because these ladies. But I find these things, put my gloves on, took it out and rinse it, and put it in Ms. Maxwell’s closet.”
He then claimed to have found a “shiny black costume” in Maxwell’s closet that he believed was used for sex.
During his years working for Epstein, Alessi said he saw “probably over 100” females go into the home. He added that he was sometimes tasked with paying the women to go to the home.
“I used to go to the bank, withdraw $10,000,” he said. “I’d pay them out of petty cash and fill out a receipt. I wish I’d known what they were really being paid for. [Epstein] swore them to secrecy, threatened them if they ever told.”
Alessi told the lawyers that he often had to clean up after the massages that the women would partake in, and that he sometimes found vibrators or sex toys that had been left out.
Maxwell was arrested earlier this month on six charges related to her allegedly grooming young girls for sex with Epstein. She has since been remanded to prison until her trial next July after being deemed a significant flight risk by a judge who ruled her immense wealth and powerful international connections could be a catalyst to avoid prosecution.
