Ghislaine Maxwell Sad About Losing Friendships with Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton: Report

Ghislaine Maxwell is reportedly dismayed about having to sever ties with Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton, who have sought to distance themselves from her and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, the New York Post reports.

Maxwell is said to have expressed the regret during a jailhouse interview for an upcoming television documentary while she is serving a 20-year prison term for sex trafficking.

The former madam, who helped Epstein procure underage girls for sexual abuse, said she understands why ex-President Clinton had to part ways.

“It was a special friendship, which continued over the years,” Maxwell told the filmmaker, Daphne Barak, according to the Sun.

“We had lots in common. I feel bad that he is another victim, only because of his association with Jeffrey. I understand that he, like others, can no longer consider me as a friend.”

It has been widely reported that Clinton flew on Epstein’s jet, dubbed the “Lolita Express,” but Clinton has denied any wrongdoing.

Maxwell offered the same sentiment about Prince Andrew, who has been stripped of his royal title.

“I accept that this friendship could not survive my conviction,” Maxwell told Barak, according to the Sun.

A photo shows Andrew hugging an underage victim, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, with Maxwell in the background. Maxwell echoed Andrew’s claim that the photo is fake and that he did nothing wrong.

“At this time, I no longer believe that to be a true image, and I don’t believe that it is what it appears to be,” Maxwell said, according to the Daily Mail. “There are over 50 problems with the picture . . . I don’t believe it’s a true picture.”

“He is paying such a price for the association with Jeffrey Epstein. I consider him a dear friend. I care about him, and I feel so bad for him,” Maxwell reportedly told the filmmaker, according to the Sun.

The convicted felon also said she was grateful to former President Donald Trump for his good wishes.

“We knew each other and mingled in the same circles, in New York, Palm Beach. I was very grateful when he wished me well,” Maxwell said about Trump, according to the Post. “He got bad media for it, but he dared, while others didn’t. I was honored he remembered me. Well, he is known to say what he thinks. It gave me a big boost.”

The interviews took place while Maxwell was still at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn and after she moved to her present location at Federal Correctional Institute Tallahassee in Florida.

Maxwell reportedly claimed that publicity of the trial made her appear like a “wicked witch” and that another inmate has attempted to kill her, according to the Post.
