The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, so they say. So, it’s no wonder new revelations suggest the mystery behind Jeffrey Epstein’s millions could point to not only his sidekick Ghislaine Maxwell, but also her father. The New York Post reports Maxwell’s father is a “notorious conman” in his own right.
The Sun reported on sworn testimony claiming, “Jeffrey Epstein was secretly bankrolled by Robert Maxwell – the father of alleged pimp Ghislaine.” The insider told The Sun Epstein was initially funded by the elder Maxwell “who swindled a pension fund before he was found dead in 1991.”
Reportedly a Frenchman named Jean-Luc Brunel who was a “pal” of Epstein disclosed the Epstein-Maxwell business partnership to friends almost 20 years ago. “The claim has since been passed onto US lawyers investigating Epstein’s crimes and those of his alleged co-conspirators, in the form of sworn testimony.”
An associate of Frenchman Brunel told The Sun “He was having a conversation with some acquaintances in New York City around 2002.” Luc described how Ghislaine’s father is the explanation for Epstein’s financial success. “He said Maxwell had been one of Epstein’s early investment clients. I assumed that Maxwell had invested in Epstein, who then used that money to make his own.”
Ghislaine’s Czech father built a publishing empire, and in 1991 his body was found floating in the Atlantic Ocean, allegedly after he fell from the yacht he named The Lady Ghislaine after his daughter. According to The Sun, “it later emerged that the fraudster had stolen hundreds of millions of pounds from his own company’s pension funds.”
Ghislaine “fled” to New York City after her father’s death and began dating Epstein, a man she must have known because of her father, although “it has never been revealed how they knew each other or met” reported The Sun. After dating Epstein, a bizarre and sick relationship ensued. For decades, Ghislaine literally acted as Epstein’s “pimp” and recruited young, underage women to be sex-trafficked by Epstein and his wealthy and influential friends. Ghislaine Maxwell is rumored to have been in a relationship with former president Bill Clinton, who has flown with Jeffrey Epstein on his private plane dozens of times.
