Jeffrey Epstein’s accused mistress Ghislaine Maxwell has a ‘very dirty and smelly’ jail cell because she doesn’t flush the toilet after using it, it has been claimed.

Federal prosecutors made the remarks against Maxwell, 59, in a letter filed in a Manhattan court yesterday, which suggested that she frequently doesn’t flush her toilet and has let her jail cell get filthy.

The letter was in response to a claim made by Maxwell’s lawyers in February, that said she was abused by a jail guard during a search, and was forced to clean as a punishment at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where she is being held.

But prosecutors have said that in reality, the guards made Maxwell clean her cell because she let it get filthy and let a stench grow because she often doesn’t flush the toilet after she uses it, the document said.

‘MDC staff directed the defendant to clean her cell because it had become very dirty. Among other things, MDC staff noted that the defendant frequently did not flush her toilet after using it, which caused the cell to smell’, prosecutors wrote, reports the New York Post.

Maxwell is being held behind bars after being charged with procuring underage girls for disgraced financier, Epstein, who committed suicide aged 66 in 2019, to abuse and lying about it under oath. She was also recently hit with additional charges, alleging that she trafficked a 14-year-old girl for sex.

Maxwell has been jailed since her arrest in July 2020, and in Tuesday’s letter, prosecutors also allege that all searches of the prisoner have been recorded and jail officials do not believe she was abused during one of the searches, as her lawyers claimed.

The letter added: ‘After reviewing the camera footage, the MDC concluded that the search was conducted appropriately and the defendant’s complaint about that incident was unfounded.’

Maxwell’s lawyers had also argued that their client was losing weight and her hair due to the shoddy conditions in the jail.

But prosecutors responded to say that she has not dropped a significant amount of weight behind bars.

The letter also said Maxwell has received vaccination against Covid behind bars.

‘The defendant has received the Covid-19 vaccine and is now fully vaccinated’, prosecutors wrote.
