Ghislaine Maxwell’s close friend has claimed that the 58-year-old faces strip search every three hours as authorities fear she might kill herself like Jeffrey Epstein. The disgraced financier killed himself in August 2019 while awaiting trial for child sex trafficking charges in Metropolitan Correctional Center, New York. Maxwell is also awaiting her trial as she has been accused of acting as Epstein’s “pimp”.

The British socialite is being currently held at a 9 feet by 7 feet Brooklyn cell hole after her arrest on July 2 in New Hampshire. Her $5 million bail bond was rejected two weeks after her arrest as prosecutors argued that she is a flight risk. But now her friend, Brian Basham, a public relations veteran, is trying to get her out of jail. “She is on her own floor and has a very small cell but doesn’t have a table to put her computer on. I’m told by the family that she has a camera in the ceiling and another camera that is 4 feet away from her and they adjust it when she moves about. They were waking her up every three hours to search her and the noise outside her cell with the guards laughing and joking and yelling to each other is very disturbing, so she hasn’t got much sleep. It’s bizarre,” Basham told the Daily Mail.

This comes after on October 25 MEAWW reported that Basham has launched the 'Get Ghislaine Out’ campaign, claiming that Maxwell has lost a lot of weight since she has not been provided with the vegan diet she follows. Her friend once said that Epstein’s “madam” did not have anything to eat for hours but when she complained, her scale was taken away by the cell guards. He also mentioned Maxwell's jail uniform in which she is only allowed to wear paper clothes with no bra since she is considered a suicide risk. Basham argued that since convicted sex offenders like Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby were granted bail why can't Maxwell get one. “If you look at Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein you could argue they were an existent threat to women. Nobody could argue Ghislaine is an existing threat to women. She isn’t. It’s a complete mystery to me as to why Ghislaine should be singled out in this way, and quite wrong too,” he said.

Basham also added that “one of the passports is a French passport. From the moment Jeffrey Epstein was arrested she could have gone to France, but she stayed.” He also gave the reason why Maxwell stayed back in the US as he explained: “She has family there, it’s her home, she regards herself as completely innocent so just kept a low profile.”

But Epstein’s victims have alleged that Maxwell was his right hand who hired minor girls for him to abuse. “As alleged, Maxwell enticed minor girls, got them to trust her, and then delivered them into the trap that she and Jeffrey Epstein had set. She pretended to be a woman they could trust. All the while, she was setting them up to be abused sexually by Epstein and, in some cases, Maxwell herself,” Acting US Attorney Audrey Strauss said during a press conference announcing her charges.
