A writer has claimed that accused Jeffrey Epstein accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell commissioned him to write a birthday song for Epstein and insisted on very specific lyrics, some with bizarre references.
As the Times of London reports, journalist Christopher Mason said that Maxwell once approached him and asked him to write a song in honor of Epstein’s birthday. The report does not say exactly when this took place.
Mason, who had apparently several musical “roasts,” claimed in an interview with the newspaper that Maxwell was very controlling and particular about the song.
“Normally I speak to as many people who know the person as possible. But this time I was only allowed to speak to Ghislaine,” Mason said.
Maxwell reportedly insisted that the song lyrics include reference to Epstein’s purported “24-hour erections” and so-called schoolgirls who had “crushes” on him during the time he was a teacher at Dalton, a private high school in Manhattan.
Epstein died just under a year ago of a reported suicide in his jail cell at the Manhattan Correctional Center where he was awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. Earlier this month, Maxwell, who has long been accused of helping to facilitate and participating in the alleged abuse, was arrested and now faces numerous counts alleging that she recruited minor victims for Epstein to abuse.
A judge denied Maxwell’s request for bail, and she remains in custody in Brooklyn. Her trial is not expected to begin until July 2021.
