Ghislaine Maxwell, the handler for convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, reportedly has a “secret stash” of sex tapes in her possession that Epstein and his entourage had recorded.
As the Daily Mail reports, this collection is not just one or two tapes, but she has a copy of everything that Epstein had.
Law enforcement officials raided Epstein’s private island and his New York City residence last year, where they found a safe full of compact discs with media graphics of underage girls. It is unclear if the photos were material he downloaded or were of the underage girls he had escorted to his sex parties.
Maxwell was arrested for her involvement in the ordeals, including ushering some of the girls to the island.
“She was charged with six federal crimes, including enticement of minors, sex trafficking and perjury,” the Daily Mail reports.
And: “The British socialite was arguably Epstein’s closest friend and she is alleged to have acted as his madam, accused of securing underage girls for the multi-millionaire, who reportedly kept evidence of his perverted sex acts against the minors.”
According to the report, however, she is not just handing over the videos in her possession to investigators but is using them as leverage to protect herself from a criminal conviction.
An unidentified former friend of Maxwell’s told the outlet that keeping the videos was preplanned as a form of “insurance” for working with Epstein.
“Ghislaine has always been as cunning as they come. She wasn’t going to be with Epstein all those years and not have some insurance,” the friend said.
The friend said the videos likely include other perpetrators and people involved with the sex parties. This could likely include other high-profile celebrities in America, the UK, and other countries.
“The secret stash of sex tapes I believe Ghislaine has squirreled away could end up being her get out of jail card if the authorities are willing to trade. She has copies of everything Epstein had. They could implicate some twisted movers and shakers,” the friend said.
The individual added: “If Ghislaine goes down, she’s going to take the whole damn lot of them with her.”
The friend also said:
Not only did Epstein like to capture himself with underage girls on camera – he wanted to make sure he had something to hold over the rich and powerful men who took advantage of his sick largesse.
I’ll bet anything that once it comes out that Ghislaine has those tapes these men will be quaking in their Italian leather boots.
Ghislaine made sure that she socked away thumb drives of it all. She knows where all the bodies are buried and she’ll use whatever she had to save her own a**.
