The unsealed documents are part of a settled civil suit between Maxwell and Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, and include a deposition in which Giuffre claimed she was sent to have sex with several high-profile men. Other documents from Giuffre's lawsuit that quote or disclose information from the depositions also remain sealed.

No precise dates were given for the alleged incidents.

Alan Dershowitz has also vehemently denied accusations of his association with Epstein.

She also claims she had sex with high-profile U.S. lawyer Alan Dershowitz. Dershowitz has repeatedly denied the allegation and the two have sued each other over it.

Former President Bill Clinton was also named in Giuffre's testimony, but has yet to respond.

Of all Epstein's victims, it's the allegations of Virginia Roberts Giuffre that has had the most fall out around the world.

All have denied the allegations, which are not new.

"Very, very well-known, popular men that everyone would know the names of..."

Giuffre says in her deposition that Epstein and Maxwell were "joined hip by hip".

She recalls how she was recruited by Maxwell while working at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate around 2000.

"Ghislaine Maxwell brought me into the sex trafficking industry". She's the one who abused me on a regular basis.

Giuffre spoke to "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King in July, and told her "you couldn't say no" to Epstein and Maxwell from her position because "you're afraid for your life".

In the newly released documents, Roberts lashes out at what she claims was Andrew's involvement in the financier's activities. He'd reached a secret plea deal with Florida state prosecutors in 2008.

Her lawyers had argued that releasing the documents would make it "difficult if not impossible" for her to receive an impartial jury for her trial. It's thought that Maxwell hopes to use these messages as part of her defence in her future trial, reports the BBC. "Go outside, head high, not as an escaping convict".

Epstein was found hanged in prison last summer while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.

Ghislaine Maxwell, the ex-girlfriend of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein (who died in prison last year), was finally apprehended and arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on 2 July after several years of living under the radar.

Prosecutors accuse the 58-year-old of recruiting and grooming girls as young as 14 to be abused by Epstein and farmed out to some of his wealthy associates. She faces six counts, including perjury, and faces up to 35 years in prison if convicted.

US District Judge Loretta Preska had ordered them released, but ms Maxwell's lawyers appealed her ruling to the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals.

The conversation, that took place in 2015, shows Maxwell attempting to distance herself from any romantic relationship with Epstein (who by that point was already convicted of procuring an underage girl for prostitution and of soliciting a prostitute).

"I would appreciate it if shelley would come out and say she was your g'friend - I think she was from end 99 to 2002", Maxwell wrote Epstein. It is now not known who Shelley is.
