A trove of never-before-seen photos showing a loved-up Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell has been released, giving an insight into the very close relationship between the two as they openly flaunted their opulent lifestyle.
The photos were submitted into evidence in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial and show the British socialite massaging Epstein’s feet on the Lolita Express, Maxwell kissing the pedophile’s cheek with her arms wrapped around him, and another riding on the back of a motorcycle.
The images were obtained during the FBI raid in 2019 of Jeffrey Epstein’s Manhattan mansion and offer graphic insight into their high-flying lifestyle, which included trips to exotic locations on helicopters and private jets.
Earlier in the day on Tuesday, the court in the Ghislaine Maxwell trial heard from FBI computer analyst Stephen Flatley who talked the jury through hard drives seized during the 2019 FBI raid.
One Microsoft Word document was created in October 2002 by Maxwell on a hard drive for a computer that was registered in Maxwell’s name.
It was not clear who the document was actually for but appeared to be something Ghislaine Maxwell was writing for somebody else.
The document stated: ‘Jeffrey and Ghislaine have been together, a couple, for the last 11 years. They are, contrary to what people think, rarely apart. I always see them together.
‘Ghislaine is highly intelligent and great company with a ready smile and an infectious laugh.’
The document stated that Maxwell and Epstein ‘share many mutual interests and are a lot of fun together,’ adding that they both had ‘inquisitive minds.’
The document said: ‘Jeffrey and Ghislaine compliment each other really well and I cannot imagine one without the other. On top of being great partners they are also best friends.’
Another Word document on the same hard drive, also created by Maxwell, was an ad she wrote in September 2001.
It read: ‘Help wanted. Are you a massage therapist? Work in Palm Beach home. Excellent pay. Mostly weekends. Please call 351-1000. Leave message.’
The same hard drive contained emails sent by Maxwell in May 2001 berating Epstein’s Palm Beach house manager Juan Alessi, who she referred to as John.
Maxwell wrote to a woman named Sally that Alessi was ‘doing a truly awful job.’
Maxwell complained about the ‘filthy pool’ and how Epstein’s ‘massage creams’ were not tidied up.
Maxwell said that ‘I am at a loss’ about how to get John to follow her orders.
Maxwell also asked about the progress of the ‘household manual’, which appeared to refer to the 58-page booklet with hundreds of checklist items for running the residence which was already admitted into evidence.
Another document from September 2002 created by Maxwell was titled: ‘Palm Beach new shampoo and massage products’.
The list contained 16 different shampoos and 13 massage products to be used in the home including some from high end brands like Kiehls.
