GHISLAINE Maxwell’s trial saw shocking revelations into her life with Jeffrey Epstein and those they mixed with.
The 60-year-old socialite was found guilty of sex trafficking girls for the multi-millionaire paedophile – her former lover – to abuse and could face 65 years behind bars.
As well as hearing their harrowing stories of alleged abuse at the hands of Epstein and Maxwell, the jury was also shown a large number of pictures.
The trial also heard from employees of Epstein, most notably his personal pilot and house keeper.
They both made eye-opening revelations about how Maxwell ran Epstein’s mansion for him and who the paedophile mixed with.
The most striking images were those showing Maxwell massaging Epstein’s feet.
The two photos were taken on his private plane, nicknamed the ‘Lolita Express’.
The images lift a lid on the intimate relationship between the Maxwell and Epstein.
Maxwell’s trial was told she and Epstein had been in a relationship but remained “the best of friends” after they split.
The images were found on CDs in Epstein’s Manhattan mansion during an FBI raid in 2019 following his arrest on sex trafficking charges.
‘HOUSE OF SIN’ MANUAL
Maxwell handed Epstein’s housekeeper a “degrading” 58-page booklet which shows staff were told to “see nothing and say nothing”.
Juan Patricio Alessi, 71, who worked at the paedo’s mansion in Palm Beach, Florida from 1990 to 2002, took the stand on the fifth day of the trial.
He said that the Brit once handed him a hefty booklet with a checklist detailing the tasks he was to carry out to “maintain the house” – something he said he found “degrading”.
The book, which was submitted into evidence and was written by a “Countess”, the court heard, was released today showing yet more strict rules staff members were told to follow.
Employees were told to “be cautious of voice levels and noise” while working at the property.
They were also told: “Remember that you see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing, except to answer a question directed at you.”
Staff were banned from eating or drinking in front of Maxwell, Epstein or their guests and were also instructed not to wear “strong perfume or aftershave lotion.”
Alessi said working conditions at the Florida home were like “slavery.”
LOUNGING IN QUEEN’S LOG CABIN
Another picture shows the pair at Her Majesty’s Scottish home in Balmoral.
It has been reported Prince Andrew hosted multi-millionaire paedophile Epstein there in 1999.
It is unclear when the photograph was taken but it has previously been reported the pair were invited there by Prince Andrew in 1999.
The pair are seen lounging on the porch of the Queen’s log cabin in Glen Beg, with Maxwell leaning against Epstein.
According to reports, Andrew hosted Epstein’s entourage, including a model in her 20s.
Prince Andrew strongly denies all allegations of misconduct against him and says he was not aware of the financier’s crimes.
ANDREW AND TRUMP’S PRIVATE JET FLIGHTS
The Duke of York and former President Donald Trump flew on Epstein’s private jet, the paedo’s former pilot told the trial.
Lawrence Visoski, who is testifying for the prosecution, was quizzed during cross examination about passengers aboard Epstein’s private planes.
Maxwell was the “number two” in the hierarchy of Epstein’s employees, while the millionaire himself was the “big number one”, he said.
And he confirmed Trump, Andrew along with Bill Clinton all flew on the jet.
Other big names who flew on the plane include Hollywood stars Kevin Spacey & Chris Tucker, violinist Itzhak Perlman, and US Senators John Glenn & George Mitchell.
Under cross examination from defence counsel Christian Everdell, Mr Visoski was asked “Are you familiar with Prince Andrew, the Duke of York?
“He is the second son of the Queen. Did he ever fly on Epstein’s planes?”
“Yes, he did,” Mr Visoski replied.
Moving on to Trump, Mr Visoski said: “He flew on them a number of times.”
The pilot recalled having to make the plane “look nice” for Clinton and that Trump flew on the plane “a number of times”.
There is no suggestions that Trump and Clinton knew of any wrongdoing.
FRAMED NAKED PICTURE OF GHISLAINE MAXWELL
Prosecutors released more than 60 images from a police raid at Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous Palm Beach mansion as part of the case.
The jury was shown police videotape and photos of the interior of Epstein’s Florida home.
The video and pictures were taken during a search of the mansion – which has been dubbed the “House of Sin” – during the 2005 investigation into Epstein.
Photos include images of a room in the property with a desk which appears to have a nude photo of Ghislaine sitting on it.
It appears to be a now-famous photo of her lying on a beach.
Pictures from the raid also show a number of weird paintings on the walls of the mansion.
Prosecutors claimed the interior of Epstein’s mansion is proof of a sexualised atmosphere encouraged by Maxwell to put pressure on the victims.
In the mansion, you can see paintings of nude women hanging on the wall – with a bare bum visible in one, and two naked women lying on a bed in the other.
A photo of a seemingly naked woman is also seen hanging on a door between the two sketches.
EPSTEIN AND MAXWELL KISSING
The never-before-seen picture showing them in a clench was sitting on a table at Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion.
Also shown on the table at the paedophile multi-millionaire’s mansion is a picture of the pair meeting Pope John Paul II.
Maxwell’s trial has been told her and Epstein had been in a relationship but remained “the best of friends” after they split.
Prosecutors have described them as being “partners in crime” in the abuse of girls.
