Were Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein a couple? – The Sun

GHISLAINE Maxwell and disgraced pedophile Jeffrey Epstein were an item in the early 1990s and apparently remained lifelong associates.

Upon Epstein's apprehension by law enforcement in New Jersey on July 6, 2019, Maxwell disappeared from the public eye until she was arrested after months of hiding on Thursday, July 2, 2020 – she is now a convicted felon.

Were Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein an item?

In 1992, Maxwell had a romantic relationship with American financier Jeffrey Epstein and remained closely associated with him up until his death on August 10 of 2019.

After Epstein was arrested for sexually abusing minors, Maxwell claimed he was a "kind generous loving man".

She stated he had a "keen sense of humor and ready smile" as she tried to get charges against him dropped in Palm Beach.

Ghislaine is quoted as saying in a document obtained by The Sun: "My experience of Jeffrey, is of a thoughtful, kind generous loving man, with a keen sense of humor and a ready smile – a man of principles and values and a man of his word."

Maxwell is accused of luring children into the clutches of her former boyfriend and even taking part in some of the abuse – claims she strongly denies.

What did Epstein do and why did he go to jail?

Epstein, a registered sex offender, was arrested in 2019 on new federal charges of exploiting dozens of underage girls in New York and Florida in the early 2000s.

Leading up to his arrest, Epstein was accused of abusing women and underage girls for decades and assembling a network of enablers to help carry out and cover up his crimes.

Epstein came from humble beginnings yet managed to lie and manipulate his way to the top of the financial world.

He eventually gained tremendous wealth and power while running an international sex trafficking ring.

He attempted suicide in custody in late July and then took his own life in early August 2019.

Two of the guards tasked with monitoring Epstein faced federal charges in May of 2021 for not properly supervising him before his death.

Epstein's brother claims that he did not commit suicide and that he was murdered.

His victims are now looking to pursue damages from the man they will never get to face-off with in court.

What happened to Ghislaine Maxwell?'

Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested by the FBI on charges linked to Epstein.

Her trial proceedings started on Monday, November 29 of 2021.

The disgraced British socialite has repeatedly denied any involvement in Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes.

A spokesperson for Maxwell claimed, “the allegations made against Ghislaine Maxwell are untrue” and she “strongly denies allegations of an unsavoury nature, which have appeared in the British press and elsewhere, and reserves her right to seek redress at the repetition of such old defamatory claims.”

Following jury deliberations, Maxwell was found guilty of all counts except one on December 29, 2021.

She is awaiting sentencing, but could face up to 80 years in prison.
