One of the women who is accusing Ghislaine Maxwell of grooming and trafficking her testified in court that she once saw photos of the British socialite pregnant.
While testifying Wednesday in the federal criminal trial of Maxwell, the former madam of billionaire and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, the woman, who testified by her first name only, said that she had seen the photographs inside Epstein’s home in Palm Beach, Florida.
“One of your memories about Ms. Maxwell is you claim that you saw a photograph of her in Epstein’s house, pregnant. Correct?” Maxwell’s defense lawyer, Jeffrey Pagliuca asked the woman, “Carolyn,” Tuesday, via the New York Post.
“Nude and pregnant laying on the –” Carolyn began to respond.
“And pregnant,” Pagliuca cut in.
“Yes. There was multiple pictures, nude photos,” Carolyn responded.
Pagliuca then entered a photograph into the record as a defense exhibit. He approached Carolyn and showed her the photograph.
“That is not the photo,” she responded.
That photograph was not shown publicly in court, the Post noted.
Another witness, Epstein’s longtime pilot David Rodgers, was shown the same photo by the defense team later in the proceedings. Rodgers identified the pregnant woman in the photo as Eva Andersson Dubin, a former Miss Sweden and Epstein’s ex-girlfriend.
Carolyn’s testimony came more than a week after the testimony of Lawrence Paul Visoski, Jr., another longtime pilot of Epstein’s private jets. Visoski said during his testimony that in the 15 years he had worked for Epstein, he had not known Maxwell to be pregnant, the Post reported.
“Now, in that whole time period, Ghislaine never appeared to you to be pregnant, did she?” asked defense attorney Christian Everdell.
“No, not at all,” Visoski replied.
“No one ever told you she was pregnant?” Everdell asked.
“No, never said that,” Visoski answered.
“And you never saw any pictures of her pregnant at any of the residences?” Everdell continued.
“No, I did not,” answered Visoski.
Maxwell has no known children, the Post reported.
