Ghislaine Maxwell Reportedly Commissioned a Song About Schoolgirl Crushes for Jeffrey Epstein’s 40th Birthday
As seen on Netflix’s docuseries, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, Ghislaine Maxwell was in a relationship with convicted pedophile and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein for years. She has been accused of grooming his young victims and participating in his sexual assaults.
With Maxwell’s recent arrest, previously unknown details about her life with Epstein are beginning to emerge. A recent report suggests that she commissioned a song about schoolgirl crushes as a gift for Epstein at his 40th birthday celebration.
Ghislaine Maxwell grew up wealthy
Before her relationship with Epstein, Maxwell was a well-known French socialite who grew up in the lap of luxury. Her father, late British publishing mogul, Robert Maxwell, was a Minister of Parliament who was exposed for fraud after stealing millions from his company’s pension fund.
In 1991, Robert’s body was found in the sea near the Canary Islands. His death was ruled as an accidental drowning, but Ghislaine has said she believes he was murdered.
After Robert’s mysterious death, and the subsequent demise of his publishing empire, Ghislaine moved to New York City where she met Epstein. The two started dating and often attended high-profile events and parties together.
Epstein’s victims claim Maxwell is as much to blame as Epstein
On Netflix’s Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, multiple Epstein victims detail how they were groomed by Maxwell. In the docuseries, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, now 36, details how Maxwell recruited her and emotionally manipulated her into having sex with her and Epstein. She also claims that Maxwell took her to London at the age of 17, and coerced her into having a sexual relationship with Prince Andrew at her London home.
“Ghislaine tells me, ‘You’re going to have to do for him what you do for Jeffrey,’ and it hit me,” Giuffre says in the docuseries. “Right after that photo was taken, I was sexually abused by Prince Andrew for the first time.”
Maxwell was arrested in July 2020
In July 2019, Epstein was arrested on charges of sex trafficking. He died by suicide a month later, while being held in a cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York. Authorities searched for Maxwell following Epstein’s arrest for months. And on July 2, 2020, federal agents finally found her hiding out at her rural New Hampshire home.
Maxwell was arrested and charged with six criminal counts, which include ‘conspiring to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts’ and ‘transporting a minors for the purposes of criminal sexual activity.’ Maxwell, who faces a sentence of 35 years, had denied any wrongdoing.
She reportedly commissioned a song about schoolgirls as a gift for Epstein
In an interview with Vanity Fair, British journalist Christopher Mason detailed how Maxwell hired him to perform a song for Epstein’s 40th birthday bash. She asked him to write the song using details she provided about Epstein. And she insisted he add a part about Epstein’s interest in schoolgirls.
“She wanted me to mention that when Epstein was teaching at the Dalton School, he was the subject of many school girl crushes,” Mason revealed. “[It was] kind of an odd thing to want in a song about a man who appears to be your boyfriend. But she clearly thought that that was something that was going to amuse him. Another odd thing that she wanted me to say was that he had 24-hour erections.”
Mason noted that he was asked to perform the song in front of Maxwell and Epstein’s’ guests, which included billionaire entrepreneur Leslie Wexler. The song she commissioned included lyrics like, “Ghislaine is lavishing him with her affections, she claims he has 24-hour erections,” and, “He taught at Dalton, the naughty boy blushes, to think of schoolgirls and all of their crushes.”
Mason said that the song was met with laughter and applause, and he felt as if the guests clearly understood the references. The journalist will be seen telling his story on Lifetime’s upcoming four-part docuseries, Surviving Jeffrey Epstein, which premieres Aug. 9.
