Ghislaine Maxwell says her bath was 'too small' for sex after Prince Andrew accuser's claims

GHISLAINE Maxwell has said her bath was "too small" for sex, after Prince Andrew's accuser claimed they were in the tub together.

Explosive documents detailing Maxwell's sex life were released today after she lost a battle to keep them private – including references to allegations made about the royal.

Prince Andrew's name is missing from the heavily redacted papers, but there are countless details referring to a London trip where he is alleged to have had sex with a teenage Virginia Guiffre.

It comes after she previously claimed she was forced to have sex with the royal in a bathroom, after they met in a London nightclub when she was 17.

The 35-year-old alleged her first sexual encounter with the Prince took place in Maxwell's London townhouse in 2001, with the pair engaging in "foreplay" in the bath.

When questioned about the alleged activity in her bathroom, Maxwell said in the latest documents: "She then characterised things took place in my bathroom in the bathtub itself.

"The tub is too small for any type of activity whatsoever."

Guiffre claimed in an interview with NBC: "We leave club Tramp and I hop in the car with Ghislaine and Jeffrey. She says, 'He's coming back to the house and I want you to do for him what you do for Epstein'."

"He wasn't rude or anything about it. He said 'thank you' and some kind of soft sentiments like that and left."

The royal has denied any wrongdoing, adding at no stage did he “witness or suspect any behaviour of the sort that subsequently led to [Epstein's] arrest and conviction”.

The new trove was part of a 2015 defamation lawsuit brought by Epstein's trafficking victim Giuffre, after Maxwell called her a liar. 

The defamation civil case was settled in 2017 in Giuffre's favour.

Following Maxwell's arrest in July, there were calls to make public the contents regarding her relationship with the late financier paedophile.

A section of her court appearance appears to refer to a dinner with Giuffre and Epstein where a name is missing.

The name of guest is redacted but it has been widely reported that Giuffre met Prince Andrew in London.

He was photographed with his arm around Giuffre and Maxwell was also in the shot, in the picture taken at the socialite's home in the city.

In the deposition, Maxwell was asked about the visit of a guest whose name was redacted to Epstein's mansion and whether Giuffre was there at the time.

Prince Andrew has admitted staying at the Manhattan property and told the BBC's Emily Maitlis in his car crash interview with it "was a convenient place to stay".

The royal was also pictured waving to an unknown girl at the door of the mansion.

On Monday the Manhattan circuit court of appeals rejected an argument by Maxwell, 58, that the files could impede her defence and today the tranche of documents was made public.

The former British socialite has pleaded not guilty to helping Epstein recruit and groom underage girls as young as 14 to engage in illegal sexual acts in the mid-1990s, and not guilty to perjury for having denied involvement in any such scheme when she gave her deposition under oath.

Today David Boies, Giuffre's lawyer, said: "This is a long-time coming and a welcome step towards revealing the evidence of the scope and scale of the Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficking ring.

The public should know today's unsealing is only a small part of the total evidence.  

"As the evidence comes out, it will be clear why Ms. Maxwell and others who enabled Jeffrey Epstein are fighting so hard to keep it concealed.  

"As our client Virginia Giuffre bravely asserts, they did not act alone."

Lawyers for Maxwell, Epstein's former girlfriend and longtime associate, had argued making the deposition public could imperil Maxwell's ability to get a fair trial, because jurors might hold its contents against her.

"If the unsealing order goes into effect, it will forever let the cat out of the bag," and "intimate, sensitive, and personal information" about Maxwell might "spread like wildfire across the Internet," her lawyers said in August.

A trial is scheduled for July 2021.

Maxwell was arrested on July 2 in Bradford, New Hampshire, where authorities said she was hiding on a property she bought in December in an all-cash transaction with her identity shielded.

She is locked up in a Brooklyn jail after the judge in her criminal case called her an unacceptable flight risk.

Epstein killed himself at age 66 in August 2019 at a Manhattan jail while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges announced the previous month.

Epstein once counted U.S. President Donald Trump, former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew as friends. They have not been accused of criminal wrongdoing.
