Ghislaine Maxwell— the British socialite who has been accused of serving as Jeffrey Epstein’s madam for a long time — is hiding in a series of safe houses and is “protected because of the information she has about the most powerful people in the world.”
Maxwell, 58, allegedly procured young women and groomed them to have sex with Epstein and his wealthy parents, but she remained out of the public eye after his death. She has always denied any misconduct.
A source tells Page Six on the heels of a Reuters report that Maxwell was the main focus of an FBI investigation into several “people who facilitated” the alleged sexual abuse of the dead pedophile: “Ghislaine is protected. To multiple foreign governments, she and Jeffrey were properties of a kind.
They would share details about the powerful people caught in his net — caught at Epstein’s place. “Ghislaine, who has homes in Manhattan and London, said the source,” She’s not in the United States, she’s traveling about. Sometimes she’s in the UK, but most often in other countries like Israel, where she’s been provided with safe houses and security by her powerful connections.
The source added that British disgraced Prince Andrew had begged Maxwell to come forward and give an interview to shield him after being accused of having sex with Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of Epstein’s most outspoken accusers, which he firmly denies.
Yet Maxwell declined, prompting his own disastrous interview with the prince. The source said: “Ghislaine was urged by Andrew to protect him publicly. She thought about it carefully, but concluded that no good would come out of it (if she came forward). It’s not in her best interest. “Maxwell attorneys have not returned to us.
The source also added, “If the US government was really interested in bringing in Ghislaine, the IRS would have looked at her tax returns and the income she may have got from Epstein and perhaps some of his powerful associates.”
