In interviews with lawyers, US pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s ex-housing manager said he saw Maxwell ‘constantly taking photographs’ of scantily-clad girls
Ghislaine Maxwell kept an album full of photographs of topless girls that she had taken, according to court documents.
Maxwell, 58, is in a New York jail awaiting trial on multiple counts of procuring girls as young as 14 for Epstein to abuse and allegedly abusing some of the girls herself. She has denied all the charges.
In papers released by a judge relating to a settled defamation case between Maxwell and Virginia Roberts, who claims she was coerced into having sex with Prince Andrew, ex-butler John Alessi, 70, claims Maxwell took pictures of young girls as a ‘hobby’.
He said: ‘She had an album full of photographs of people, young girls … some girls were topless, taking the sun. She went out and took pictures in the pool because later I would see them at the desk or at the house and nude, 99.9 per cent of the time they were topless.’

She said: ‘How outrageous that it’s been a year since Prince Andrew publicly promised to co-operate with law enforcement investigating all those who enabled Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual assaults on hundreds of women and girls.
‘He simply has not kept that promise. Meanwhile, the six victims I represent struggle to repair their lives.
‘We implore Prince Andrew to submit to an interview with the FBI investigation of Ghislaine Maxwell and other accused co-conspirators, to tell what he knows, to turn over documents and evidence, and to instruct his staff to do so as well.
‘It is never too late to do the right thing.’
