TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA: Disgraced socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is popular among a group of influential convicts in Florida prison, where she works in the library, creates pottery, and runs a checkers tournament. Because of her privileged upbringing, the 60-year-old British socialite leads a comfortable life at the Federal Correctional Institute in Tallahassee.

Insiders informed the Daily Mail that the Oxford-educated sex trafficker and offender was chosen by her Unit B South cellmates to represent them in an annual checkers competition that awards delectable rewards. An insider told the outlet, “You want the best players and she has a reputation for being smart,” he continued, “The winning unit gets a really good meal, chicken wings, pizza, that sort of thing. It’s much better than the usual food.” The source added, “It’s a big deal. Nobody cares what you’re in for so long as you win.”

Additionally, Maxwell devotes six hours a day to her job at the prison library, where she advises inmates on the top romance books and histories. According to a source within the facility, the carefree inmate's daily routine includes board games, crochet instruction, and walks around the low-security area with friends. Maxwell frequently visits a quarter-mile running track where she jogs for an hour in the sunshine while serving a 20-year sentence for sex trafficking children.

She has developed friendships with prominent inmates recently, including Narcy Novak, 65, a Florida woman serving a life sentence for orchestrating the deaths of her billionaire husband and his mother. According to the source, Maxwell has developed a friendship with Linda Morrow, who assisted her husband, a plastic surgeon, in scam insurers of millions of dollars.

However, the Florida prison is cozier than the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where Maxwell frequently complained about terrible conditions when holed up there following her initial arrest in July 2020, where inmates also got to enjoy movie nights and peaceful yoga sessions. Maxwell sobbed and grumbled a lot when she first arrived in the federal prison four months ago, but she has since made many friends and is now enjoying her activities, one recently released prisoner stated this. “Ghislaine cried a lot when she first arrived. You could hear her yelling that everything was inhumane. She walked around like a zombie, her eyes were always puffy,” the ex-prisoner said. “Now she has some friends and is eating more. She’s bubbly, you see her smiling. She makes a point of saying good morning. You can see she’s visibly more comfortable.” Maxwell might reside in the prison until July 17, 2037.
