Revealed: how Ghislaine Maxwell fought those who accused her over Jeffrey Epstein
Socialite’s lawyers combed through life of billionaire’s alleged abuse victim when she was sued for libel
The lengths to which Ghislaine Maxwell went to contest allegations that she conspired with Jeffrey Epstein to groom underage girls for sex is laid bare in an analysis of hundreds of pages of legal documents unsealed this month.
The documents form part of a defamation action brought four years ago by Virginia Giuffre, who alleged that the British socialite was instrumental in grooming her to become one of his underage “sex slaves”, allegations Maxwell has previously denied. Giuffre accused Maxwell of libelling her by calling her a liar in public.
