Virginia Roberts Giuffre took a swipe at Ghislaine Maxwell, her alleged abuser, on Saturday, posting a poolside pic from Australia following a week in which the jailed British socialite unsuccessfully attempted to block court documents revealing damning aspects of her alleged sex crimes.
Giuffre, 36, posted the pic on Twitter as she relaxed in the sun down under, where she lives with her husband and children, the Daily Mail reported.
“Hey Ghislaine Maxwell, just sitting outside, taking some time to de-stress after you & your lawyers [sic] shenanigans. Like the view?” Giuffre wrote.
“If you didn’t abuse 1000’s of minors you would not be staring at your toilet as a piece of artwork,” she continued, referring to Maxwell’s incarceration.
The British socialite was arrested by the FBI early last month in New Hampshire, alleging she procured underage girls for convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who hung himself in a jail cell earlier this year.
In a 2015 defamation lawsuit, Giuffre has alleged that Maxwell procured and then groomed underage girls for sex with Epstein and other rich, powerful men.

At present, Maxwell, 58, is being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where she was moved shortly after her arrest last month. She is awaiting trial on several charges of criminal sex trafficking.
Giuffre’s post comes after a federal judge ordered scores of documents related to her 2015 defamation suit released to the public last week. Maxwell’s attorneys filed an emergency order seeking to keep the documents sealed, arguing that releasing them would make it unlikely she would get a fair trial.
The more than 80 documents released were unsealed on Thursday, but the following day, a U.S. court of appeals agreed to temporarily halt the release of a deposition taken in 2016 detailing Maxwell’s sex life. The 2016 deposition was set for release on Monday. It’s not clear whether the current temporary order will be made permanent.
In mid-July, a report noted that Maxwell has a secret spouse whose identity she has not revealed.
Guiffre has claimed that Maxwell essentially trafficked her to Britain’s Prince Andrew on at least three occasions — once at Epstein’s apartment in New York; once at her London home in March 2001, and once on Epstein’s island in the Caribbean.
A now-famous photo shows Andrew with his arm around Guiffre’s waist with Maxwell standing nearby; the picture was taken in 2001 at Maxwell’s apartment.
Prince Andrew has vehemently denied he had any sexual relations with Guiffre.
Court documents unsealed last week implicate former President Bill Clinton as well as Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz.
Guiffre testified that she saw Clinton on Epstein’s “Pedo Island” with “2 young girls” whom she didn’t know but said were from New York.

And last year, thousands of documents ordered unsealed by a U.S. court of appeals contained a claim by Guiffre that Maxwell went to pick up Clinton in a “large black helicopter” for a party on Epstein’s island shortly after the ex-president left office.
Also, flight logs uncovered in 2015 indicate that Clinton flew aboard Epstein’s 727 jet on multiple occasions.
As for Dershowitz, he vehemently denied having any sexual relations with Guiffre during an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Friday.
Allegations against Dershowitz –
Not only did Dershowitz abuse the minor, but he helped draft a non-prosecution agreement that gave Dershowitz immunity.

At one point, Carlson noted that Vanity Fair was set to publish a revealing expose about Epstein in 2002 but the story was killed.
“A glossy magazine in New York had heard them, they were known, out there. You were friends with Jeffrey Epstein. You went to his home in New York, his home in Palm Beach, you went to his island — so-called ‘Pedo Island.’ You flew in his plane many times. How did you not know?” Carlson asked.
“Of course I didn’t know,” Dershowitz insisted, repeating an earlier claim that he was on the island with his wife, daughter, and grandchildren.
