She was born on 25 December 1961 in Maisons-Laffitte, Île-de-France, France. She is 58 years old.
Maxwell was the ninth and youngest child of Elisabeth, a French-born scholar, and Robert Maxwell, a Czechoslovak-born British media proprietor. Her father was from a Jewish family and her mother was of Huguenot descent.
Relationship with Jeffrey Epstein
While Maxwell and Epstein seemed somehow co-dependent for decades, they were not officially a couple. According to The Guardian, a journalist named Conchita Sarnoff knew the pair from social circles. Sarnoff said of Maxwell: “She seemed in love when I first saw them together. I believe Jeffrey was taking care of her. I feel Ghislaine clung to Jeffrey because she felt protected by him.” She says Epstein, “seemed less in love but more enamored.”
For years though, they were in each other’s lives. Vanity Fair reported in 2003 that Maxwell got her helicopter’s license so she could fly people to Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean. In that interview, Epstein described Maxwell as his “best friend.” He said he did not pay her, but the magazine reported: “she seems to organize much of his life.”
According to the warrant for Maxwell’s arrest, from 1994 to 1997, Epstein and Maxwell were in an “intimate relationship” and during those years he paid her to manage his “various properties.”
Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested
Maxwell’s whereabouts have been unknown for some time, but according to News 4, the FBI told them that the British heiress and socialite was arrested in New Hampshire on charges related to Epstein, and will make an appearance in federal court Thursday. Maxwell is charged on six counts of facilitating sex with minors and lying about it, according to the FBI indictment.
Epstein killed himself in a jail cell last July after being arrested on federal charges for sex acts with minors, accused of exploiting dozens of underage girls in the late nineties and early 2000s. Many well-known and powerful men orbited Epstein’s circles, including Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, and Donald Trump.
Maxwell was made to testify about the accusations of her involvement in procuring young girls for Epstein in 2016. According to the indictment, Maxwell denied knowing of any sex toys Epstein may have had or used, though accusers say that vibrators and sex toys were used when they were assaulted by Epstein and that sometimes those sex toys were introduced by Maxwell.
Maxwell also denied having any knowledge of Epstein having sex with anyone at all outside of herself and a couple of consensual, legal, threesomes. She also denied ever having massaged Epstein or massaging a minor girl, as she is accused.
Maxwell is charged with enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual acts, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual acts, and two counts of perjury.
