In 2016, Maxwell said she grew unhappy with Jeffrey Epstein
Maxwell, criminally charged with aiding Jeffrey Epstein in his sexual abuse of teenage girls, testified in 2016 that she had no memory of anything amiss on his properties in the 2000s despite the accusations from dozens of women and girls that they were sexually abused by Epstein. Ghislaine Maxwell, 59, said during a July 2016 deposition for a defamation lawsuit that she learned about abuse claims “like everybody else, like the rest of the world, when it was announced in the papers." The transcript of a deposition of Maxwell that took place earlier in 2016 was released in October. “Did anyone ever complain to you that Mr. Epstein had demanded sex of them?” attorney David Boies asked. Maxwell has been held without bail since pleading not guilty in July to recruiting girls for Epstein to abuse in the mid-1990s.
