Ghislaine Maxwell grilled about Prince Andrew puppet allegedly tied to abuse



The Prince Andrew puppet that was allegedly used to grope some of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims made a cameo in Ghislaine Maxwell’s 2016 deposition that was unsealed Thursday.

The doll — seemingly the same one that Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre said bore the likeness of the British royal — was the subject of a lengthy line of questioning in Maxwell’s seven-hour grill-fest.

“Is there any puppet you’ve ever seen in Jeffrey Epstein’s home in the presence of [redacted]?” asked Giuffre’s lawyer Sigrid McCawley.

“Again, puppet, you know, there is lots of types of puppets,” Maxwell shot back.

“Any type of puppet,” McCawley continued. She later asked Maxwell, “Have you seen any puppet that fits any description in the presence of [redacted] in Jeffrey Epstein’s home?”

After an objection from her lawyer, Maxwell waffled, “I am not aware of any small handheld puppet that was there. There was a puppet — not a puppet — there was a — I don’t know how would you describe it really, I don’t know how would you describe it. Not a puppet, I don’t know how you would describe it. A caricature of [redacted] that was in Jeffrey’s home.”

Many names were redacted in the deposition ahead of it going public on Thursday.

Giuffre claimed Andrew used a puppet to allegedly grope her at Epstein’s Upper East Side mansion in 2001. Giuffre has said Maxwell was there at the time of the alleged abuse.

Another Epstein accuser, Johanna Sjoberg, had also reportedly accused Andrew of inappropriately touching her with the same puppet.

Maxwell, a close pal of Andrew’s, denied gifting him the doll or witnessing it being used in the alleged abuse of Roberts.

“Do you recollect asking Virginia Roberts to sit on [redacted] lap with the caricature of [redacted]?”

“I do not recollect that,” the British socialite replied.

Maxwell is behind bars on charges that she recruited and groomed young women to be sexually abused by her and Epstein.

Giuffre has claimed she served as Epstein’s “sex slave” and had sex with his powerful pals, including Prince Andrew — a charge he’s denied.
