Maxwell was arrested on perjury and child-sex trafficking charges earlier this month, facing 35 years in jail if convicted – she “vigorously” denies the allegations and has pleaded not-guilty.
In a damning civil lawsuit filed last December, Ms Farmer claims Maxwell “spent years overseeing and managing Epstein’s sex-trafficking network . . . Epstein’s preference was to have three different girls a day for his sexual pleasure and Maxwell was in charge of recruiting the girls”.
The allegations were revealed this weekend after Annie waived her right for anonymity and pleaded for Maxwell to be locked up.
Ms Farmer says she was “lavished” with gifts by the super-rich couple, who attempted to ensnare her into their sex trafficking ring.
The psychologist, now 41, also claims she was ordered to strip naked and groped by Maxwell in 1996, when she was aged just 16, reports The Sunday Times.
In a six-count indictment against Maxwell, Ms Farmer is identified as “minor number two”.
The indictment details allegations of abuse at Epstein’s New Mexico ranch in the mid-nineties, along with two other victims – one who was just 14 at the time.
Annie was introduced to the couple when her older sister, Maria, began working for them as a young artist.
The couple invited Annie on a trip, alongside sister Maria, to the ranch, claiming it was an educational getaway for high-school students.
The girls’ parents were told “Maxwell would be a host or chaperone for Annie at the event.”
At this point, the Farmer sisters say Epstein had allegedly already groped young Annie during a trip to the cinema the year before in New York.
After inviting her to the ranch, they again took her to see a film, during which Ms Farmer says Maxwell exposed Epstein’s buttocks at the cinema and the couple “fondled” eachother, “trying to normalise sexual behaviour to a child.”
The lawsuit continues: “Upon returning [to the ranch] from the movie, Maxwell repeatedly told Annie that she wanted to give her a massage . . . Maxwell directed Annie to take off all of her clothes and lay on the massage table.
“Maxwell touched intimate parts of Annie’s body against her will for the sexual benefit of Maxwell and Epstein. Maxwell exposed Annie’s breasts and groped her. Annie was extremely distressed and afraid. She was a child in a massive ranch, away from her family, and isolated from any source of help.”
The documents also allege Annie was assaulted the following morning by the then 43-year-old, who got into her bed demanding a “cuddle”.
Farmer’s lawyers claim she was only persuaded to go public with the allegations following his death, as she: “Feared that Epstein and his co-conspirators, including Maxwell, would harm her or her family, or ruin her life, if she came forward.”
Maxwell has asked for Farmer’s claim, which has been filed at the same New York court that is handling her criminal case, to be dismissed.
Speaking after Maxwell was deemed a flight-risk and denied bail, Annie’s older sister Maria told the Daily Mail: “That woman was much more sinister than Epstein, and to me, much more dangerous.
“She was definitely the mastermind. She was in charge.”
Farmer has previously recounted how she first encountered the pair at her graduation show at the New York Academy of Art in 1995.
She had already sold some of her work, but was approached by the school’s dean and told that Epstein and Maxwell, important patrons at the time, would instead be buying it and for a reduced price.
She then began working for Epstein, and has alleged that both he and Maxwell sexually assaulted her during a trip to a secluded Ohio estate in the summer of 1996.
Maria claimed Maxwell would behave like a “cool sister” and played a central role in helping to groom her.

“[Maxwell] made you feel special and safe,” she said.
“[She] would just dote on you — make you’d feel like you’d won the lottery.”
But she added that Maxwell would have “psychotic” outbursts that “scared [her] to death”, and that Epstein would then comfort her as part of a “good cop, bad cop” routine.
