Epstein paid Ghislaine Maxwell six figures to recruit massage therapists



Ghislaine Maxwell said she earned a six-figure salary while working for Jeffrey Epstein, which involved managing his six estates — and scouting massage therapists for the wealthy pervert.

The British socialite — the daughter of disgraced late media titan Robert Maxwell — said she started working for Epstein in 1992 before the two became romantically involved.

“First, I was consulting and what I did was I helped with decorating houses and in hiring staff to help run those houses,” Maxwell said in the beginning of a seven-hour deposition from 2016 that was unsealed Thursday.

She said she was also responsible for scouting masseuses to give Epstein rubdowns — but denied they were for sexual reasons.

“In the course and a very small part of my job was from time to time to find adult professional massage therapists for Jeffrey,” she said.

Maxwell said she was paid somewhere between $100,000 and $200,000 for her work with Epstein — for whom she’s accused of recruiting and grooming young women.

Epstein also gifted Maxwell cars in the early 2000s, though she said she couldn’t recall other details.

He also bought her a townhouse as part of a “loan” deal that she says she repaid.

It’s not clear if that amount was an annual salary.

She said around 2002 or 2003, her work with the now-dead financier “lessened” though she was still “helping him in a very nominal way” until 2008 or 2009 — around the same time he became a convicted pedophile.

The 465-page transcript, stemming from a since-settled defamation case filed by Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, includes hundreds of denials from Maxwell about her involvement with Epstein.

They include her testifying that her media mogul-turned-fraudster father, Robert, did not know Epstein or introduce the pair.

“And did Jeffrey know your father?” asked Giuffre’s lawyer Sigrid McCawley.

“No.”

“How were you introduced to Jeffrey?” McCawley continued.

Maxwell responded, “Some friend introduced us” in 1991.

Recent reports, however, have claimed Robert introduced his daughter to Epstein in 1988, with the father believing the multi-millionaire would take care of her “emotional” needs.

Another report claimed Robert was bankrolling Epstein the entire time.

Epstein committed suicide in a Manhattan lockup weeks after he was charged with sex trafficking.

Maxwell was arrested in July and remains behind bars.

In the deposition, Maxwell also declined to refer to herself as Epstein’s “girlfriend,” instead testifying that the two “were very friendly” in the 1990s and admitting they had been intimate together.
