She’s now one of the most notorious heiresses known to mankind — weirdly enough with nothing to do with her actual self but instead her sordid relationships. I’m talking about the elusive; heard but not seen Ghislaine Maxwell. As it seems, the apple certainly doesn’t fall far from thou tree. Maxwell for those that don’t know is the daughter of the equally mysterious (although deceased) scam artist Robert Maxwell.
The woman wanted by authorities in two countries but for the love of god has evaded questioning and almost inevitable capture without as much as blinking an eyelash. Maxwell, an überconnected heiress, is wanted for questioning in connection to claims that she helped disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein procure his underage victims while traveling the world.
If it sounds like the plot of a pending movie script, that’s because it probably will be. Maxwell has previously viciously denied claims that she played any part in Epstein’s salacious fall from grace — but what most still don’t know is exactly what she knows and to what extent
Perhaps the most stunning of revelations against Maxwell is the fact that she’s allegedly managed to procure young women for wealthy men all around the world… largely undetected. It’s like a sordid episode of a problematic crime-fighting tv show from the 90’s where they just can’t seem to catch the obvious bad guy here.
Enter: Virginia — the now infamous victim pictured in this photograph that could be single-handedly credited with not only sparking the investigation into Epstein but also what would become of the made-for-tv moment Prince Andrew finally got cupped by the balls and fired. Rightfully fired.
She’s Britain’s most unwanted heiress but now she’s perhaps the most famous heiress in the world — for all the wrong reasons.
But despite her tendency to both indirectly and directly declare she is innocent as seen in court papers — photographic evidence indicates in more ways than one that Ghislaine Maxwell is just as evil as she’s been made out to be. A cunning; beautiful, scandalous woman so knee deep in her social influence and prowess that she has long gotten away with almost everything.
Following last weeks horrendous Newsnight interview between Andrew and the BBC — interest has once again landed in the lap of the only known person authorities and the public haven’t gotten to question: Maxwell. It’s been said she’s coasting along France; likely traveled through Greece at one point, and even at one point lived with a boyfriend and their dog.
Former associates of Maxwell told me for this piece “She’s a cunning and remarkably intelligent woman. She knows exactly how to accomplish what she wants and how to get it. She stopped speaking to a number of people a few years ago, but then resurfaced in the news. We automatically knew why. It was a turn of events we had all seen coming because she was so enamored with Epstein and his money. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do for him.. crazy or not.”
We’ve been tracking Maxwell’s whereabouts two different locations in New York City and the U.K. Our follow-up piece Where’s Ghislaine + New Clues About Her Sordid Affair goes live this weekend.
