    'I WAS EPSTEIN'S GIRLFRIEND'

    Maxwell revealed “there were times I’d have liked to think of myself as Epstein’s girlfriend”, in bombshell deposition.

    The 58-year-old denied ever calling herself the financier's partner but claimed she did enjoy a romantic relationship with him in the early 1990s.

    She was asked: “Were you in a relationship with him where you would consider yourself his girlfriend?”

    Maxwell replied: “No.”

    In a follow-up question she is asked: “Did you ever consider yourself his girlfriend?”

    Maxwell said: “That’s a tricky question. There were times when I would have liked to think of myself as his girlfriend.”

    “When would that have been?”

    “In the early ‘90s.”

    SEX TOY STASH

    Ghislaine also denied any knowledge of having a 'laundry basket of sex toys' in her room at Epstein's mansion in Palm Beach Florida.

    Im the deposition, she is asked: “Did you have a basket of sex toys that you kept in the Palm Beach house?”

    Maxwell replies: “You have to define what are you talking about.”

    “A sex toy meaning a vibrator of some kind, sometimes they are called dildos, of that nature, anything like that?” the lawyer says.

    Ghislaine responded: “I don’t recollect anything that would formally be a dildo, anything like that.”

    Former Epstein staff member Juan Alessi claimed in a 2016 affidavit that he would sometimes find sex toys and vibrators in Maxwell's sink at the Florida home.

    The socialite has also been accused of “gagging and raping” one alleged victim with a sex toy – claims she strongly denies.
