I have yet to see a movie or read a book as gripping and dramatic as the Ghislaine Maxwell story (maybe it’s called Maximum Peril: The GMS) wherein a former fugitive awaiting arraignment is feverishly transferred from “cell to cell” to “avoid assassins,” but because the rest of the actual news in #theseuncertaintimes is already too dramatic to be believable, it’s barely a blip in the news cycle.
According to the New York Post, keeping Ghislaine in oxygen is no small task for her jailers at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, her current home after being moved from a New Hampshire jail.
Ghislaine Maxwell is being moved from “cell to cell” in her Brooklyn lockup — over fears someone will try to kill the accused Jeffrey Epstein madam before she stands trial, according to a report.
Now insiders have told the Mail on Sunday that prison officials are so “terrified someone will try to kill her” that they are constantly moving her around inside the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.
“She is being moved from cell to cell and sometimes has a cellmate, sometimes not,” an insider told the UK paper.
“Jeffrey Epstein died behind bars and they are terrified someone will try to kill Ghislaine,” the source said.
Earlier this week we learned Ghislaine was thrown a classic Project Runway unconventional materials challenge where she was given paper clothing and told to make it work. Apparently, Nina Garcia would not be impressed. She’s been given real clothes now, but she still looks a mess.
After the paper clothes safety precaution, Maxwell is now in prison regulation khaki shirt and pants, the report said. She also has long hair and unkempt nails and looks “far from the perfectly groomed socialite seen in photographs,” the Mail’s source said.
If only Ghislane had stuck to conventional rich white woman crimes instead of being an alleged deviant sexual predator who prays on children, Martha Stewart would have given her some of her tips and tricks for looking fresh behind bars like she did for Felicity Huffman. Because ultimately, while there may be honor among thieves, when it comes to alleged child abusers, no such quarter is given.
Former warden Cameron Lindsay previously told The Post that the risks for a high-profile inmate like Maxwell are real.
“To take someone out like that, that would be a badge of honor in the subculture of prisons,” he said.
Ghislaine’s arraignment and bail hearing is scheduled for tomorrow. She is facing “four counts of sex trafficking and two counts of perjury.” According to The Independent, Ghislaine’s lawyers are hoping that the “significant risk” of Ghislain contracting COVID-19 will compel the judge to accept their bail package which includes a $5 million bond, home detainment, and electronic monitoring. Prosecutors, of course, argue she’s an extreme flight risk. I just pray they assign her the same courtroom sketch artist they had for the Harvey Weinstein trial. The world deserves to see that greasy hair and those dirty unkempt nails in excruciating detail!
