Epstein was found dead in his New York cell in 2019 while awaiting a sex trafficking trial.

The authorities say he took his own life but Maxwell disagrees.

Asked if she thought he had committed suicide, she replied: “No, I don’t believe he did.

“I believe that he was, er, murdered.”

The former socialite, 61, made the claim in an interview broadcast last night on TalkTV.

She was also asked what she would say to women who felt betrayed by her and wanted her to stay in jail.

She replied: “I say Epstein has died and they should take their disappointment and upset out on the authorities who allowed that to happen.

“And, as I said, I hope that they have some closure via the judicial process that took place.”

Maxwell, serving 20 years in Florida, said of Epstein: “Clearly my association and the fact that I worked for him and spent time with him and knew him has devastated my life and hurt many people that I’ve loved and hold dear around me.”

She also claimed she had no memory of Prince Andrew meeting his accuser Virginia Giuffre and that a picture of the pair together is a fake.
