British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is reported to have been in the inner circle of late financier Jeffrey Epstein, who died in jail on August 10 awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy.
According to alleged victims, Maxwell acted as Epstein’s madam; she’s accused of recruiting victims and abusing them alongside the convicted sex offender.
The 57-year-old daughter of late media mogul Robert Maxwell moved to New York City from England in 1991, reportedly living off a $100,000-a-year trust fund.
Maxwell integrated herself into the city’s high society, attending parties, charity galas, and other events with celebrities, presidents, CEOs, and other members of the city’s wealthy and powerful elite.
For seven years, she ran an ocean conservation nonprofit, which abruptly shut down in July 2019.
Until 2016, Maxwell lived in a 7,000-square-foot Manhattan townhouse with links to Epstein, which was sold in 2016 for $15 million.
