Evidence presented Thursday in Ghislaine Maxwell’s Manhattan trial included the “little black book” belonging to deceased billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
Epstein’s contacts list was entered as “Government Exhibit 52,” according to a Post Millenial report, which added Epstein’s longtime house manager and driver, Juan Alessi, verified that the “little black book” contains an extensive list of contact information for Epstein’s wealthy friends and alleged victims.
Alessi testified the book was kept next to a telephone in Epstein’s Palm Beach, Florida home. Furthermore, Alessi reportedly said that when directed by Epstein or Maxwell, he used the book to invite people listed in the book to come over to Epstein’s house to massage him.
The Inner City Press Twitter page contains a running commentary of trial testimony, including an exchange related to using the book to call one of the witnesses against Maxwell.
The transcript reads as follows:
AUSA: I have a physical exhibit, GX 52. May I approach the witness? Do you recognize it?
AUSA: What is it?
Alessi: It is the directory.
AUSA: Did you review it last night?
Alessi: I did.
AUSA: Every page?
AUSA: How many names?
Alessi: Many. Many. Many.

Alessi reportedly said the book contained the names of Epstein and Maxwell’s top accusers. One of them, who prosecutors referred to using the pseudonym “Jane,” testified against Maxwell Wednesday. Epstein’s former house manager testified he was first introduced to “Jane” at the disgraced billionaire’s Florida mansion when she appeared to be approximately 14 years old, confirming Wednesday testimony from Maxwell’s alleged victim.
He further testified he drove “Jane” to the property upon request by Maxwell and Epstein “many times.”
Alessi informed the court about working for Epstein in Palm Beach for more than a decade, telling the Manhattan jury he saw “many, many, many females” in their 20s, topless at times, mingling with Epstein and Maxwell.
According to a New York Post report, the house manager recalled that until his employment ended in 2002, he witnessed seemingly young girls interacting with the alleged pedophile. He told the court one of the girls was “Jane,” who he described as a strikingly beautiful girl appearing to be 14 or 15 years old.
The ex-house manager identified the other girl as Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who alleges Epstein and Maxwell sexually victimized her when she was just a teenager.
