Ghislaine Maxwell tries to gag court document revealing names of people linked to Jeffrey Epstein

Ghislaine Maxwell tries to gag court document revealing names of people linked to Jeffrey Epstein
Ghislaine Maxwell is trying to block court documents that reveal the names of ­“hundreds of people” allegedly linked to her paedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein.

The British socialite also hopes to suppress a 418-page deposition of her own words in ­testimony she provided at a defamation case with Virginia Giuffre, who claims Prince Andrew slept with her when she was 17 – which he denies.

Maxwell’s lawyers argue the documents, which are under seal, could be used to “promote public scandal”.

They also contain ­summaries of flight logs from Epstein’s private jet dubbed the “Lolita Express”.

Maxwell, 58, is in custody after being charged with grooming and ­trafficking minors for Epstein, who killed himself in jail last year.

She denies the claims and is due to make her first ­appearance in a New York court tomorrow.

Four women accused of supplying young girls for Epstein, Lesley Groff, Nadia Marcinkova, Sarah Kellen and Adriana Ross, are facing investigation by the FBI.

Kellen has been dubbed Maxwell’s “lieutenant” by victims of the late financier.

One claimed: “When Jeffrey wanted me, you know, Sarah Kellen or Ghislaine would call me into his bedroom.”

Former Maxwell associate Christina Oxenberg claims her pal “wire-tapped” the Lolita Express to use for leverage if she were arrested.

Oxenberg said: “She will name names. She’s a drowning rat.”
