NEW YORK — A confidante of Jeffrey Epstein will utilize sex tapes made by the deceased billionaire to avoid prison, a former friend of Ghislaine Maxwell is claiming.
Maxwell, 58, was arrested last week on six federal charges including incitement of minors, child sex trafficking and perjury.
Maxwell’s former friend, who spoke to The Daily Mail on the condition of anonymity, said Maxwell is hoping the salacious tapes will prove to be her “get out of jail free card.”
“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,” she told the Mail. “She has copies of everything Epstein had. They could implicate some twisted movers and shakers. If Ghislaine goes down, she’s going to take the whole damn lot of them with her.”
“Ghislaine has always been as cunning as they come,” she said. “She wasn’t going to be with Epstein all those years and not have some insurance.”
“Not only did Epstein like to capture himself with underage girls on camera – he wanted to make sure he had something to hold over the rich and powerful men who took advantage of his sick largesse,” she claims. “I’ll bet anything that once it comes out that Ghislaine has those tapes these men will be quaking in their Italian leather boots. Ghislaine made sure that she socked away thumb drives of it all. She knows where all the bodies are buried and she’ll use whatever she had to save her own ass.”
Maxwell is currently being held without bail in a New York City jail. She is due in court on the charges this Friday.
