Ghislaine Maxwell wanted to marry Jeffrey Epstein, but her love was one-sided: Journalist
Investigative journalist Vicky Ward stated that Ghislaine Maxwell wanted to marry Jeffrey Epstein and have his children but he wanted to 'stay single and sleep with other women'
Investigative journalist and author Vicky Ward, whose full name is Victoria Penelope Jane Ward, has made some shocking claims about Ghislaine Maxwell and her relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. In an article written for The Daily Mail, the 52-year-old said that as per sources Maxwell’s love for the disgraced financier was one-sided.
Ward wrote, “She [Maxwell] wanted to marry him and have children, sources told me — though she had insisted otherwise. Meanwhile, he wanted to stay single and sleep with (many) other women, which he certainly did.” But she also mentioned that the British socialite, as per the sources, was fine “with this — they presumed because Epstein could provide her with the same lavish lifestyle she'd grown up with as the daughter of the late and crooked media mogul Robert Maxwell.”

Ward, who wrote a 2002 article on Epstein's money for Vanity Fair magazine, said that when Maxwell’s father -- a British media proprietor and also a suspected spy, and fraudster -- bizarrely died in 1991, she was left “more or less penniless”. “So, Epstein looked after Ghislaine financially, in return for her introducing him to the glitterati. That was the mythology,” she noted.
The author of ‘Kushner, Inc.: Greed. Ambition. Corruption. The Extraordinary Story of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’ said that her sources told her Maxwell and Epstein “didn't live together”. “Some sources claimed she worked for him — although Epstein later denied this. He insisted they were not romantically involved, instead telling me she was his best friend,” she added.
Ward, however, said that while touring Epstein’s house in 2002, she only saw his ex-girlfriend, former Miss Sweden Ava Andersson Dubin’s pictures everywhere, but did not find any of his “best friend”. “I asked him about this and he brushed it aside, saying there were 'lots of photos of lots of people' in the house,” she wrote.
In her article, Ward also explained how Maxwell was when she saw her in the late 90s. She noted, “Though she was a few years older than me, we were both English, Oxbridge-educated and would sometimes be invited to the same parties. She was pin-thin, expensively dressed, funny, fun, clever, worldly and the effortless centre of attention. She talked about sex a lot — and she liked to behave outrageously. During one Manhattan dinner I heard about, she told a British movie star to lie face-down on the floor; she jumped on his back and gave him a massage right there on the ground in front of everyone. Even as people laughed, one observer wondered if what she was doing was not inappropriate.”
Currently, Maxwell is in jail after being accused of helping convicted pedophile Epstein recruit and sexually abuse girls. Her trial is due on July 12. In April, the 59-year-old’s lawyers released a photo of her face showing bruising under her left eye. Attorney Bobbi Sternheim said, “While Ms Maxwell is unaware of the cause of the bruise, as reported to medical and psych staff, she has grown increasingly reluctant to report information to the guards for fear of retaliation, discipline, and punitive chores.”
