Jeffrey Epstein’s girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell was in possession of a “stash” of sex tapes involving teenage girls, Jeffrey Epstein, and other notable elites, a person close to Maxwell told The Daily Mail.
The friend, whose name has not been released said she had a “secret stash” of tapes and photos allegedly showing Epstein engaging in sexual activity with various underage girls. The friend said they expect Maxwell to use the stash as her “insurance policy” to possibly avoid jail time.
The friend, whose name has not been released, said they expect Maxwell to use the tapes as her insurance policy, saying she “take the whole damn lot of them down with her.”
“Ghislaine has always been as cunning as they come. She wasn’t going to be with Epstein all those years and not have some insurance,” the friend said. “The secret stash of sex tapes I believe Ghislaine has squirreled away could end up being her get out of jail card if the authorities are willing to trade.”
The friend said Epstein not only recorded everything he did, but also recorded several “rich and powerful men who took advantage of his sick largesse.” This gave Epstein something to “hold over” anyone else who partook in the alleged circle of trafficking and abuse between Florida and New York.
“She has copies of everything Epstein had. They could implicate some twisted movers and shakers,” the friend said. “If Ghislaine goes down, she’s going to take the whole damn lot of them with her.”
Maxwell is accused of recruiting and grooming several victims of Epstein’s alleged scheme since the early 1990s. She is in custody at a federal detention center in New York City pending her bail hearing and trial.
UPDATE: The New York Post has reported that Maxwell is secretly married and has refused to reveal her husband’s name.
The bombshell detail was divulged Tuesday as Manhattan prosecutors accused her of purposely hiding the extent of her wealth.
“In addition to failing to describe in any way the absence of proposed co-signers of a bond, the defendant also makes no mention whatsoever about the financial circumstances or assets of her spouse whose identity she declined to provide to Pretrial Services,” Assistant US Attorney Alison Moe told Manhattan federal Judge Alison Nathan during a video conference, according to g to The Post.
