New photos showing the jetset life Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein led have been revealed.
Released as part of the proceedings against Maxwell, 59, in the US, the pictures give a glimpse into how she and sex offender Epstein lived.
The British socialite is currently on trial accused of crimes such enticing girls aged as young as 14 to be sexually abused by Epstein from 1994 to 1997 at his homes in New York City, Florida, and New Mexico – and at her residence in London.
She denies the charges and has pleaded not guilty, but if convicted on all counts she will likely spend the rest of her life in jail.
Included in the bundle are pictures of Epstein with a number of planes, Maxwell with a woman reported to be Sarah Kellen, and images of Epstein’s homes in the US Virgin Islands and New Mexico.
Ms Kellen was reportedly Epstein’s personal assistant, and is also known by the name Sarah Kensington.
Little Saint James was once known as Mingo Cay, and was bought by a company linked to Epstein for just under $8m in 1998.

Epstein’s former pilot, Lawrence Visoski, told the court that Maxwell was Epstein’s “number two” and that he flew Prince Andrew on the financier’s jet.
The trial in New York, expected to last six weeks, began its fourth day on Thursday and has heard from a number of witnesses.
Key points of the trial so far:

- Prince Andrew named among high-profile men to travel on Epstein’s private jet
- Charges involve four alleged underage victims and multiple locations between 1994 and 2004
- First accuser in trial of Ghislaine Maxwell says she had repeated sexual contact with Epstein when she was 14 years old and that Maxwell was there when it happened
- Defence claims Maxwell has been used as a “scapegoat” for Epstein’s crimes and question alleged victim over discrepancies in her accounts of the abuse
Maxwell is charged with eight counts of sex trafficking and other crimes that will be tried separately, including two perjury charges, all of which she denies.
The 59-year-old daughter of late British media magnate Robert Maxwell faces up to 80 years in prison if convicted.
It is expected the trial will last around six weeks.

Maxwell has pleaded not guilty and her lawyers have said prosecutors are making her a scapegoat for Epstein’s alleged crimes because he is dead.
The financier killed himself, aged 66, in 2019 in a Manhattan jail cell while awaiting trial on sexual abuse charges.
