A woman, identified only by her first name Carolyn, testified in the ongoing Ghislaine Maxwell sex-trafficking trial, claimed that she saw a photograph of Maxwell “nude and pregnant” at Jeffrey Epstein’s Palm Beach house.
Carolyn accused Maxwell of touching her when she was 14 and has claimed she visited Epstein for about four years, two to three times a week to give him sexual massages.
Ms. Maxwell’s lawyer, Jeff Pagliuca asked Carolyn if she had seen a photograph where Maxwell appears to be pregnant:
“You claimed you saw a photograph of her in Epstein’s house, pregnant?” Pagliuca asked.
“Nude and pregnant,” Carolyn responded.
But when the lawyers showed her a photo, she said that was not the one she had seen, and no further mentions about the alleged pregnancy were discussed in court.
Prosecutors have said that Epstein and Maxwell were “partners in crime”, while several others were saying that they were a couple or had a business relationship.
It can be seen, in one of the photos submitted as evidence, that the pair are kissing and the photographer is allegedly sitting on top of a table in Epstein’s Palm Beach home.
Carolyn said that she was introduced to Ghislaine Maxwell by Virginia Roberts, who took her to Epstein’s Palm Beach estate in the first place, and she also alleged she had given Epstein more than 100 inappropriate massages, beginning when she was 14.
“She [Ms. Maxwell] came in and felt my boobs, my hips and my buttocks, and said that… I had a great body for Mr. Epstein and his friends. She said that I had a great body type,” said Carolyn, adding that Maxwell took nude pictures of her and photographed “the stuff with Epstein” and that she had confided in Maxwell and Epstein about her troubled childhood and broken home after she was abused by her grandfather when she was four years old while her mother was an alcoholic.
She admitted that she was coming back to the house as she was paid $300, which was a “lot of money.”
Maxwell will now be facing six charges; one each of enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in illegal acts, trafficking of a minor, and three counts of conspiracy related to the other counts.
But Maxwell has denied all charges and pleaded not guilty. She could spend up to 35 years in jail if guilty.
