A prominent alleged victim of Jeffrey Epstein sent a very public message Saturday to his accused madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, the New York Post reports.
“Hey #GhislaneMaxwell (sic) just sitting outside, taking some time to de-stress after you & your lawyers shenanigans. Like the view?” Virginia Giuffre tweeted.
Included in the tweet were photos of Giuffre lounging in the sun near a large pool, a stark juxtaposition to Maxwell’s present life behind bars inside a Manhattan jail as she awaits trial on sex-trafficking charges.
Giuffre added: “If you didn’t abuse 1000’s of minors you would not be staring at your toilet as a piece of artwork. #TimesUp #SpeakOut #WhoIsNext #KidsToo.”
Court records unsealed days earlier allege that the 36-year-old Giuffre had been sexually assaulted as a child and that Maxwell’s attorneys sought to undermine that claim.
Giuffre has alleged that Maxwell also sexually assaulted her and forced her to perform sex work for Epstein when she was 15 years old.
The records, released from a 2015 defamation lawsuit Giuffre filed against Maxwell, also include an email exchange that appears to be between Maxwell and Epstein. It appears in the email that Epstein was coaching Maxwell about how to respond to allegations against her that she helped find girls and young women for Epstein to victimize.
The email was date stamped in 2015, which undercuts Maxwell’s claim that she had not been in contact with Epstein for more than a decade.
The records further documented a deposition Giuffre gave as part of the lawsuit in which she disclosed details of the alleged sexual abuse and described Maxwell’s body.
Authorities arrested Maxwell in early July at a remote New Hampshire estate and have charged with sex trafficking and perjury. She is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan until her trial, which is scheduled to start in July 2021.
