GHISLAINE Maxwell hosted a sex-themed dinner for New York's elite with sex toys at every table, it is claimed.
The socialite, who was yesterday arrested on sex trafficking charges at a luxury bolthole in New Hampshire, threw the sordid bash in Manhattan's swanky Upper East Side.
According to Vanity Fair, Maxwell placed a sex toy at each place setting at the audacious party.
The theme reportedly centred around oral sex.
Maxwell lived in Jeffrey Epstein's palatial home on the Upper East Side but it is not clear where the party was held.
Her former townhouse in the same affluent area was sold for $15 million in 2016, by a company with the same address as Epstein's New York office.
She has now been accused of grooming underage girls for the paedo tycoon at the townhouse – as well as at his homes in Florida, New Mexico and Maxwell's home in London from 1994 to 1997.
Maxwell's sensational arrest has sent shockwaves through Epstein's elite inner circle.
It's been reported the Brit socialite will be "naming names" after being hauled before a judge on shocking child sex abuse charges.
Maxwell will be "fully cooperating" with the FBI in their investigation into the secret world of the shamed financial tycoon, say reports.
And that could spell bad news for those who have spent years trying to distance themselves from shamed Epstein.
The co- author of 'A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein' said some would be terrified in the wake of Maxwell's arrest
"I think that a lot of the friends of Jeffrey Epstein who were very relieved after he died are probably pretty terrified at this moment," said Alana Goodman.
"Epstein is dead … she (Maxwell) doesn't really have to worry about protecting him or anything else at this point."
The former hedge-fund manager kept his client list under wraps, but he often bragged of his elite social circle which included movie stars, presidents and at least two royals.
Maxwell, who became a confidante of Jeffrey Epstein, has been accused of being Epstein's "pimp".
She was arrested in Bedford, New Hampshire on charges she conspired with Epstein to sexually abuse minors.
Maxwell appeared briefly by video from jail at a hearing in New Hampshire federal court, where a judge ordered her to face the criminal charges in New York.
She spoke briefly, answering “yes” when asked if she knew her rights. Her lawyer, Larry Vogelman, declined further comment on her behalf.
Prosecutors said she was a flight risk and asked that she be detained without bail. They said she faces up to 35 years in prison.
She is charged with four criminal counts related to procuring and transporting minors for illegal sex acts and two of perjury, according to the indictment by federal prosecutors in New York.
“Maxwell was among Epstein’s closest associates and helped him exploit girls who were as young as 14 years old,” said acting Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss.
“Maxwell played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify, befriend and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself.”
Epstein was awaiting trial on federal charges of trafficking minors between 2002 and 2005 when he was found hanged in an apparent suicide while in a New York City jail in August aged 66.
