Celina Midelfart: Norwegian heiress says she NEVER dated Jeffrey Epstein or Donald Trump
'Celina Midelfart has not had anything to do with Jeffrey Epstein after 1997,' a statement issued via Celina Midelfart's attorney Kyrre Eggen added
The high-profile trial of Ghislaine Maxwell saw the name of a blonde Norwegian heiress coming up. During the trial that went on for weeks, it was claimed that Celina Midelfart once dated Jeffrey Epstein and former President Donald Trump. But now Midelfart has refuted those claims made by Maxwell’s former personal assistant during the trial.
In a statement issued via her attorney Kyrre Eggen, the 48-year-old Midelfart said that she had a business connection with Epstein, not anything personal: “[I have] never dated, or had any romantic relationship, with Epstein.” The statement continued, “Celina Midelfart has never dated, nor had any romantic relationship, with Epstein. The true facts are as follows: Around 25 years ago Celina Midelfart had plans to invest some funds in the US markets. In that respect a Norwegian financial adviser, who had a business relationship with Epstein, advised Celina Midelfart to talk with Epstein.”
“At that point in time, Epstein was a financial adviser at the renowned American brokerage house, Bear Sterns. For a short period of time, Celina Midelfart had some funds placed in the US markets by Bear Stearns, represented by Epstein. Celina Midelfart has not had anything to do with Jeffrey Epstein after 1997. It is very hard to understand how this short business relation from around 25 years ago, has any relevance whatsoever to the very serious criminal charges against Maxwell,” it noted.
The statement also shed light on the claims made that Midelfart had a romantic relationship with Trump before he went on to marry his current wife Melania Trump and she had dated English singer and entertainer Robbie Williams too. It read, “Celina Midelfart has never dated, nor had any romantic relationship, with Donald Trump. The correct facts are that Celina Midelfart rented an apartment in the Trump Tower during her studies in New York in 1996 to 1998. In this period of time she got to know Trump as a friend and she accompanied Trump to many, mostly work-related, events. They were never in a romantic relationship, but they enjoyed a mutually respectful friendship. Celina Midelfart has no other relation to Robbie Williams than having seen him perform once, at a concert in Oslo, Valhall, in 2003.”
The statement, however, did not address the accusation made during the Maxwell trial that Midelfart, who is now married to businessman Tor Olav Troim and has a 10-year-old kid with him, had traveled on Epstein's private jet — the infamous Lolita Express — at least 13 times. Midelfart is the grandchild of the founder of the Midelfart cosmetics company. She is the daughter of a businessman father Finn-Erik Midelfart and socialite mother Kristin Hermine Muhle. She was 22 when her father died and she became the owner of the family's health and cosmetics empire. In 2000, Midelfart was named the chairman of the Midelfart cosmetics company. But she later sold it to Procter & Gamble and Midsona AB.
