Is Prince Andrew a forgery victim?
Ghislaine Maxwell, a sex trafficker, spoke out for the first time in prison about the disgraced royal and her “loved friend” in an interview with The Sun.
Ghislaine is currently serving a 20-year sentence for adolescent female trafficking.
In the interview, the former British socialite stated that she believes the Duke of York is the victim of fabricated evidence.
Ghislaine Maxwell called one of the most talked-about exhibits in the case against Prince Andrew a fabrication, despite everyone witnessing it with their own eyes.
It’s the infamous photo of him clutching Virginia Giuffre’s stomach, allegedly taken in 2001 at Ghislaine’s London home.
She was also seen in the photo standing in the background, wide-eyed.
On the other hand, the inmate claimed that the photograph was genuine, backing up the royal’s earlier claim.
“There was never an original one produced.”
She also declined to comment on Virginia, who sued Prince Andrew for sexual assault earlier this year and allegedly received $12 million in damages.
However, when Jeffrey Epstein’s lawyer Alan Dershowitz asked her if the photo was real.
“It looks real. I believe so.”
When pressed, she stated that she does not “recognize” the image and does not believe it is genuine.
Then Ghislaine stated that all she wanted to convey in her email to Dershowitz was that she recognized her residence.
“If you see an image of yourself in your house and someone asks you, ‘Is that a picture of you?’ So you don’t question.”
Ghislaine Maxwell lost more than just Prince Andrew, especially after her ties to Jeffrey Epstein, who was discovered dead in his jail in 2019 while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
She said of Queen Elizabeth II’s purported favorite son:
“I feel so horrible for him. I’m keeping track of what’s going on with him.”
The 60-year-old was reportedly disturbed when told that the former royal’s counsel said they were never close.
“I recognize that our friendship could not survive my conviction.”
“He is paying a high price for his affiliation. He is a dear friend of mine. I’m concerned about him.”
Ghislaine also expressed regret for her involvement with the sex abuser, alleging that it had transformed her into a “wicked witch” demon who had harmed those she cared about.
She expressed a desire to go back in time and never be associated with Epstein.
