The British socialite, a former girlfriend and confidante of disgraced financier Epstein, is now in FBI custody.
Getty ImagesNo abuser exists in a vacuum. That’s perhaps one of the most terrifying truths of Netflix’s recent documentaryJeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich: The disgraced financier might have been a convicted sex trafficker, but he was repeatedly aided and abetted by those around him. And one of his main alleged accomplices has now been arrested: Ghislaine (pronounced ghee-lane) Maxwell, a British socialite and Epstein's one-time girlfriend.
On July 2, law enforcement officials announced the FBI had arrested Maxwelland she'd soon appear in federal court, according to NBC. Maxwell went underground after Epstein's conviction and alleged suicide in 2019, but investigators have continued to pursue the case, suspecting Epstein was far from the only criminal involved.
Filthy Richgave a platform to survivors including Annie and Maria Farmer, Virginia Giuffre, Sarah Ransome, Haley Robson, Courtney Wild, Michelle Licata, and several others—nearly every one of them mentioned Maxwell.According to the survivors’ testimony, Epstein’s
“molestation pyramid scheme”—as victims’ attorney Brad Edwards called it—worked like this: Epstein (or, allegedly, Maxwell) wouldrecruit a young girl to come to his property and give him a massage in exchange for money. Usually these girls self-identified as vulnerable, in need of the cash, the connections or both. But they say the massage didn't go as they’d assumed; it would reportedly turn sexual when Epstein asked the girls to undress. Survivors claim Maxwell would sometimes partake in the sexual activity herself. Then Epstein would pay the girl, ask her to “recruit” and return with friends, and she would often do so out of fear, desperation or need. Thus Epstein built a vast network of young women and underage girls, of whom there are likely hundreds of trafficking survivors.
In 2019, Epstein was finally arrested, charged with sex trafficking, and sent to the Metropolitan Correctional Center, where he reportedly took his own life. The shocking death unleashed a fury of conspiracy theories, but it also put an enormous target on Maxwell’s back as one of his closest connections.
Yet, for months after Epstein’s name faded from headlines, Maxwell eluded arrest, and she categorically denied any knowledge of or involvement with Epstein's sex crimes. Here’s what we know about her arrest—and where her case might go next.Ghislaine Maxwell has stayed mostly out of the public eye since Jeffrey Epstein was arrested in 2019.
