Convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell claims she's 'definitely not the person portrayed' in media
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA: Convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell recently claimed that the idea that she is "the cruelest, meanest, most poisonous person" is untrue. Maxwell, who is currently serving a 20-year sentence in a Florida prison, also wishes for Jeffrey Epstein's victims to "have a productive and free life going forward."
Maxwell has also made some shocking admissions regarding her connection to Jeffrey Epstein. In addition, she also opened up honestly about her friendship with Bill Clinton and the mistakes she made in her life. Maxwell further addressed the victims of her crimes and discussed her hopes for a successful appeal.
According to The US Sun, parts of the disgraced British socialite's interview with a UK broadcaster from behind the bars appeared on TalkTV on Sunday, January 22 night, in which she detailed her routine as prisoner number 02879-509. In response to a question regarding her public persona, she declared: "[I'm] definitely not the person portrayed." She added, "I feel completely divorced from the person that people write off and talk about…in the incredible and various newspaper articles and TV shows and podcasts.”
Speaking about billionaire Epstein, she said, “Clearly my association and the fact that I worked for him and spent time with him and knew him has devastated my life and hurt many people that I’ve loved and hold dear around me."
The former pal of Prince Andrew added, "I honestly wish I had never met him. I wish…I had stayed in England. I’d been a banker and so I should have moved on from him. I didn’t know that he was so awful. I mean, obviously now, looking back with hindsight, of course."
Maxwell continued, "But at the time, I mean he had lots of friends. He was friendly with just about everybody you could imagine. There was no reason to imagine that he was someone who was capable of evil."
Maxwell also questioned the veracity of a photohraph that came to represent Virginia Giuffre's accusations of Prince Andrew's sexual misconduct amid rumors that the Duke of York is considering reversing the deal. "I don't believe it's real for a second," Maxwell, who appears in the famed 2001 picture with the then-17-year-old Giuffre while Andrew hugs her semi-bare waist, said.
Maxwell added, “It’s a fake … there’s never been an original and further there is no photograph. I’ve only ever seen a photocopy of it," as reported by The Guardian.
TalkTV has aired excerpts from the interview that the journalist Daphne Barak did in August 2022. A longer version will air on Monday, January 23 night during the 'Jeremy Kyle Live' show.
