Ghislaine Maxwell is prepared to take the witness stand in an effort ‘to save her own life’, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The 59-year-old says she ‘will do whatever it takes’ to clear her name at her trial, which begins in New York tomorrow.

A source close to Ms Maxwell, who faces life in prison if convicted of child sex and trafficking charges, said: ‘Ghislaine is absolutely prepared to take the stand.

She is prepared to do whatever it takes to save her own life.

‘She has never shied away from the truth and she is looking forward to her day in court.’ Defendants in high-profile sex abuse trials often decide not to give evidence and instead put pressure on prosecutors to prove their case.

Ms Maxwell, whose designer wardrobe has been tailored to accommodate her severe weight loss while on remand, fears being scapegoated for the crimes of her ex-boyfriend

But Ms Maxwell, whose designer wardrobe has been tailored to accommodate her severe weight loss while on remand, fears being scapegoated for the crimes of her ex-boyfriend, serial paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

She will make her case to the jury if her defence team think it necessary when the prosecution rests.

‘Ghislaine is not over-confident by any means but she knows she is telling the truth,’ said the source.

‘She has no fear about getting in the witness box.’

Four women will claim they were abused by Ms Maxwell, one when she was just 14. However, the judge has ruled that testimony from two of the women cannot be used in court because they were not underage at the time and in the place where the attacks are alleged to have occurred.

The source explained: ‘One is a British accuser who was 17 when the alleged activities took place but that is above the legal age in the UK.’

Another woman, Annie Farmer, was 16 when she says she was sexually assaulted in New Mexico, where the legal age of consent is 16.

‘This is a huge blow to the prosecution,’ the source said. ‘They cannot prove two of their witnesses were underage so the judge will instruct the jury that their testimony cannot be used to convict Ghislaine.’

Ms Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to all charges and has told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I am innocent.’

I’ve spent £3k on baby clothes but I’m not pregnant – people think I’m bonkers but I know it’ll benefit us in the end

A WOMAN explained that she bought £2-3k of baby clothes despite not being pregnant.

The woman, 29, said that she and her partner were planning on having a baby when they had saved up some money so she thought the clothes were a smart investment.

But, as it was causing arguments between her and her partner, she took to Mumsnet to ask for advice from others.

She said: "I’m 29 and very broody. We can’t have a baby yet as we need to save money to raise them, feed them and send them to school.

"I have £5k in savings. We’d also really like to move up the property ladder. "

"My [significant other] and I need to complete postgrad exams in order to advance in our profession (£2-3k each). We do not share our disposable income and never will do.

"I am so looking forward to having a baby one day. Sometimes I see baby clothes that are just so cute, I feel like I have to buy them or I’ll never see them again.

"I’ve spent probably £2-3k on baby clothes in the 3 years, I’d say around half on sale.

"My [significant other] is upset because he feels that I’m throwing money away.

"He’s managed to save quite a bit already which will cover a few years of education.

"I feel that we are technically saving money by front loading the cost of this necessity. I think it’s such a non issue and it’s quite smart tbh.

"We have a shared budget of £50k for offspring and I can definitely save this by the time I’m 35 (it will take me 30 months to save £25k).

"Surely it only matters that I eventually save the money, not that I save it at the same rate as him.

"We’ve been together since we were 18 and we’ve always agreed about money and spending.

"But as we age, he’s becoming very anxious and extra cautious about the cost of having a family and he can be quite stubborn e.g. a child will survive with free education as I did, they don’t definitely need savings accounts from birth etc.

"He’s taking it a little too seriously because many people don’t save so much before starting a family.

"We’ve bickered about this quite a bit and it really winds me up.

"I feel like the arguments are getting worse about such a minor issue."

Fellow Mumsnet users were quick to jump in and offer their thoughts on the situation.

One said: "£2-3k on baby clothes is ridiculous if you have a baby. I never spent anywhere near that on my babies. You are being very unreasonable I'm afraid."

While another said: "£2-3 k on clothes for a not yet existant baby is a waste of money, babies really don't need that many clothes and grow out of them so fast."

And a third said: "You are being ridiculous! £2-3k on baby clothes when you're not even pregnant is insane.

"Even if you had a baby that's a crazy amount of money. What will you do if you can't conceive? You're setting yourself up for some serious heartache."
