Ms Maxwell, who was in a relationship with Epstein, is facing trial after being accused of framing teenage girls for abuse by a disgraced financier who awaits trial on sex-trafficking charges in a New York prison in 2019. I had committed suicide.
Ms Maxwell’s attorney, Jeff Pagluka, asked Carolyn if she had seen a photo of the socialite appearing to be pregnant.

“Naked and pregnant,” answered Caroline.
Then she was shown a picture by the lawyers, but she said it was not the one she had seen.
While Ms Maxwell is not known to have had children, according to multiple media reports, no further details about the alleged pregnancy were discussed in court.
Ms Maxwell’s relationship with Epstein has come into question several times in the trial.
While prosecutors have said they were “partners in the crime,” several others have said they were a couple or had a business relationship.
One of the photographs offered as evidence shows the couple kissing. The photo was reportedly of Epstein sitting atop a table at his Palm Beach estate.
Caroline, who was cross-examined in court, alleged that she gave Epstein more than 100 sexual massages when she was 14 years old.
She said she was introduced to Ghislaine Maxwell by Virginia Roberts, who she said had taken her to Epstein’s Palm Beach house.
