(PresidentialHill.com)- Just when you thought Ghislaine Maxwell was finally out of the news, former Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Tina Brown drags her back into the limelight in her upcoming book, “The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor – the Truth and the Turmoil.”
In an excerpt from Brown’s book published last week in the UK Daily Telegraph, Brown claims when Ghislaine Maxwell was ten she told a houseguest that her late father Robert Maxwell beat her with implements of her choosing.
Brown also writes that Maxwell’s upbringing as the daughter of a media mogul played a part in shaping her relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.
Brown recounts gossip from a British newspaper heiress named Eleanor Berry, who claimed she noticed different items laid out on the 10-year-old Ghislaine Maxwell’s dressing room table. Maxwell allegedly told Berry that those were the items her father used on her to beat her. But, Berry claims, Maxwell said she always gets to choose which item her father can use.
Brown comes to the conclusion that this bit of gossip sheds some light on why Maxwell “fell under the spell” of Jeffrey Epstein, describing the anecdote as “the sadistic offering of power to the powerless.”
What this has to do with “Inside the House of Windsor” is anybody’s guess.
Brown claims in her book that Maxwell, who began dating Jeffrey Epstein after she moved to New York City at the age of 30, was “madly in love” with the late pedophile. According to Brown’s gossipy account, Epstein and Maxwell’s relationship “quickly turned transactional” with Epstein supplying the money while Maxwell “made the introductions.”
Brown determines that Ghislaine Maxwell wasn’t able to hold Epstein’s “sexual attention” so she found ways to keep their relationship going by recruiting young women “to service his insatiable needs.”
Ghislaine Maxwell was convicted in late December for her role in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking from 1994 to 2002. Her sentencing is scheduled for June where she could face up to 65 years in prison.
Hopefully, the public won’t be sentenced to another 65 years of endless tabloid reports about Ghislaine Maxwell.
