Ghislaine Maxwell looks like she’s been chiselled from a block of ice. And if her demeanour is any indication, the inside matches the outside, according to a former friend who has known the disgraced socialite for years.
Today, the former paramour of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein is cooling her jets in a Brooklyn jail while she awaits her July trial on sex trafficking charges.
Ghislaine Maxwell has pleaded not guilty and none of the charges have been proven in court.
A wealthy California woman said she met Maxwell at a gala in 2004 at her Los Angeles-area home, and they became fast friends.
My first impression was that she was very intelligent and very charismatic, she knows what to say, the woman, who asked to remain anonymous because she has spoken to the FBI about the Maxwell case, told the Toronto Sun.
She revealed that Maxwell was drawn to the wealthy like a moth to a flame.
This woman was worse than Jeffrey Epstein. She has no conscience. I wondered about a lot of things with her, sometimes, the woman said, adding that Ghislaine Maxwell was hypersexual.
She told me she could get into anybody’s pants and that girls are like candy.
These were the days before Epstein was arrested in Florida on an underage prostitution beef.
I visited her at her place in New York and at Jeff’s place, and we flew together several times, the woman said.
But it didn’t take long for her to start noticing disturbing things unfolding in the Maxwell-Epstein orbit.
She said that Ghislaine Maxwell was attracted to both men and women and sincerely hoped she would one day marry creepy Epstein. Both were obsessed with social standing and even had rankings.
There were always half-naked young women around both Maxwell and Epstein. Yes, I saw them, and it troubled me, she said.
The woman revealed she has been questioned by the FBI, but she wishes she had acted sooner like many others.
I feel a burden of guilt for not having done something sooner, she said. But they (Maxwell and Epstein) were a team when it came to sex, money, and power. A very formidable team and the most perverse people I’ve ever seen.
Even today, the Californian said she remains mind-boggled by the extent of the corruption around the twosome.
Now, the 59-year-old publishing heiress is backed into a desperate corner. If convicted, she could be in jail for decades.
If it looks like she’s going down, Ghislaine will make a deal, and she’ll throw people under the bus, including Prince Andrew, the former friend explains.
