Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell: Their criminal relationship
Billionaire financier, Jeffrey Epstein, was arrested in 2019 on sex abuse & trafficking charges of both underage and young of-age women. The evidence against him was compelling. Epstein was being held without bail, awaiting trial, when he committed suicide in his cell in August of 2019.
Epstein’s partner in both crime & romance, Ghislaine Maxwell, was arrested by the FBI in July 2020 for her involvement in Epstein’s sex trafficking scheme. Deemed a flight risk, Maxwell is also being held without bail while she awaits trial. Should she be convicted, Ghislaine Maxwell faces up to thirty-five years in prison.
It is believed that Ghislaine Maxwell met Jeffrey Epstein at an exclusive New York party in the early 1990s. The couple have allegedly been running their sex trafficking operation ever since – including during 2008 when Epstein was serving time for crimes relating to soliciting a prostitute, and prostitution of a minor.
Just how did Ghislaine Maxwell end up connected to a man like Jeffrey Epstein? Furthermore, how did a high profile couple such as themselves manage to run an elaborate and extensive sex trafficking scheme without going undetected? Well, allegedly, they didn’t. It is believed that the wealthy & powerful people connected to the couple did, in fact, know all about Epstein’s scheme. Some even participated.
Here is everything we know about the criminal relationship that developed between Jeffrey Epstein & Ghislaine Maxwell over the years.
What did Maxwell see in Epstein?
Ghislaine Maxwell is the daughter of the late Robert Maxwell, a media tycoon from England. Maxwell grew up surrounded by ostentatious wealth & privilege. Because of this, Maxwell was accustomed to living a life of obscene exuberance.
When Robert Maxwell died suddenly, it was revealed that his company was actually in great financial trouble and all the money Ghislaine was set to inherit was gone. She left England soon after her father’s death and moved to New York, where she was quickly acquainted with Jeffrey Epstein.
Epstein was the answer to all of Maxwell’s problems. He was filthy rich, very connected, and certainly able to provide Ghislaine Maxwell with the lifestyle to which she was previously accustomed. It is believed the couple began dating relatively quickly.
Did Ghislaine Maxwell know?
Did Ghislaine Maxwell know from the onset of their relationship that Jeffrey Epstein had a wildly insatiable sexual appetite and an inappropriate affinity for young women? Evidence suggests that, yes, Ghislaine Maxwell was perfectly aware of her boyfriend’s kinks. It is reported she seemed unperturbed by the situation, and even willing to assist.
Christopher Mason, a British Journalist, reports that he witnessed such evidence himself at Epstein’s home in January 1993. Mason was commissioned by Ghislaine Maxwell to write & perform a song at Epstein’s 40th birthday celebration.
Mason told Vanity Fair that Ghislaine Maxwell “wanted me to mention that when Epstein was teaching at the Dalton School, he was the subject of many school girl crushes.
“Kind of an odd thing to want in a song about a man who appears to be your boyfriend. But she clearly thought that that was something that was going to amuse him. Another odd thing that she wanted me to say was that he had 24-hour erections.”
Mason claims Maxwell was very specific about the details of the song, to which there were very clear indications about the details of Epstein’s sordid sexual life. Mason performed the song for Epstein and seven of his billionaire buddies, including Les Wexner. The lyrics are as follows:
Poor Jeffrey Epstein is 40, oy vey!
Life must be tough, his hair is already so gray
He sure looks older, but it’s clear from his smile
The older he gets, the more juvenile
Ghislaine is lavishing him with her affections
She claims he has 24-hour erections
Sounds like he’s busy, now ain’t that berserk
How does he find the time to get off to work
He wakes when the cock crows while everyone slumbers
He rivals Einstein when crunching those numbers
He taught at Dalton: The naughty boy blushes
To think of schoolgirls and all of their crushes
Mason claims the song “laughter, amusement, applause . . . It seemed to have lots of good references that they were all guffawing over.” The attendees of Epstein’s birthday celebration appeared unphased by the suggestive content of the song.
A four part Lifetime docu-series, Surviving Jeffrey Epstein, alleges that the people in Maxwell & Epstein’s social circle, as well as those in their employ, all knew about the couple’s sexual exploits and did nothing. Among these people are incredibly high profile individuals such as Prince Andrew, Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, just to name a few.
Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested on charges related to recruiting and grooming underage girls for Epstein to sexually abuse. Several of his victims allege that, not only did she recruit for Epstein, but Maxwell also participated in the abuse herself from time to time. Maxwell is expected to face trial in 2021.
