Prince Andrew reportedly begged Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘madam’ Ghislaine Maxwell to help clear his name by publicly defending him, but she refused as it was ‘not in her interests’. Andrew pleaded with Ghislaine to publicly defend him.
It has emerged that the Duke of York asked Maxwell to give a public statement as she was the only other person said to have been present on the night Virginia Roberts Giuffre alleged that she was forced to have sex with him when she was 17.
The claim emerged in an explosive new report that also claimed Maxwell could have been smuggled from the USA and living in a safe-house in Israel.
Prince Andrew, 59, strenuously denies having sex with Roberts and claims he can’t remember meeting her despite a photograph of him with his arm around her at Maxwell’s London home.
Maxwell, 58, has been accused in lawsuits of procuring underage girls for Epstein to abuse and she among his wealthy and powerful friends, and is reportedly the subject of an ongoing FBI probe.
Family friend Laura Goldman says Ghislaine is being hidden by rich friends but plans to get back to normal ‘once the dust has settled’.
She has wealthy connections who hide her and even pay some legal fees. She can stay out of the public eye as long as she wants. Goldman claims that Maxwell is relieved at Epstein’s death and that it means she can escape justice for her alleged crimes.
She added that Maxwell still ‘adores’ Prince Andrew, who was forced to step down from royal duties due to a backlash over his friendship with Epstein.
Born in France, Maxwell is both a U.S. citizen and British subject. Her family’s alleged ties to Israel’s national intelligence service, Mossad, have been well documented.
Maxwell’s father, Robert Maxwell, was a Czech-born British media mogul whose financial fraud in raiding the Mirror Group pension fund was discovered after his mysterious death in 1991.
Also a British member of parliament, Robert Maxwell reportedly had ties to British intelligence, the Soviet KGB, and Mossad — and was suspected of being a double or even triple agent by British Foreign Office officials.
