What was her relationship with Jeffrey Epstein?

Ghislaine is believed to have begun her relationship with Epstein in New York in the 1990s following the death of her father, disgraced media mogul Robert Maxwell.

It is known that the pair dated for a number of years and Prince Andrew referred to her as Epstein’s “girlfriend” during his infamous Newsnight interview.

However, in a 2003 Vanity fair article, Epstein described Maxwell as his “best friend”. 

Maxwell has been called Epstein's "madam" and has been accused of luring children into the clutches of former boyfriend Epstein and even taking part in some of the abuse – claims she strongly denies.
