Ghislaine Maxwell’s father, conman Robert Maxwell, was the one who introduced his daughter to pervy pedo Jeffrey Epstein, according to a bombshell new podcast.
Multiple sources on investigative reporter Julie K. Brown’s podcast have said that, although it was previously reported the dastardly duo met after Robert’s death, they were introduced in 1988 by Robert, who thought Epstein could take “emotional” care of his adored youngest daughter.
Ghislaine and Epstein became inseparable for years after Robert’s death — and it was during those years Ghislaine is accused of procuring girls as young as 13 for Epstein (charges she denies).
One friend of Ghislaine’s said she met Epstein in London through Robert, but she wasn’t interested in him immediately — an account echoed by a staffer who told journalist Emily Saul of a night in the 1990s where, “Out of the blue Ghislaine said her dad actually connected her with Epstein … The idea was Epstein was someone who could take care of her emotionally, not financially. Ghislaine was very clear on that last point,” according to the podcast.
Meanwhile, Epstein’s former housekeeper in Palm Beach, Juan Alessi, has claimed in the Daily Mail that Maxwell once told him: “I hate him (Epstein) but I can’t leave.”
Ghislaine likely couldn’t leave Epstein because of the money.
