Ghislaine Maxwell's father introduced her to Jeffrey Epstein to 'take care of ...

Ghislaine Maxwell once revealed that her father introduced her to Jeffrey Epstein to 'take care of her emotionally'.

The pedophile's alleged chief recruiter confessed to one of his staffers that the late newspaper baron Robert Maxwell set her up with Epstein. Robert apparently believed that Epstein could provide her with the support she needed.

Maxwell insisted that Epstein was not there to help financially and was 'very clear on that point', the staffer said.

According to Broken: Seeking Justice, an investigative podcast about the Epstein case, Maxwell met Epstein in 1988 and not after her father died in 1991, which is what was previously suggested.

If that is true then it changes the dynamic about the couple and suggests that Maxwell did not befriend Epstein while in mourning for Robert, who fell off his yacht in the Canary Islands in mysterious circumstances.

In fact, 19 days after Robert's death, Maxwell was photographed at the Plaza Hotel in New York at a memorial event for her father.

According to federal prosecutors, during this time Maxwell groomed girls as young as 14, charges she denies and will stand trial next July.

'Seeking Justice' quotes numerous people who knew Maxwell and Epstein who say that they met before Robert's death.

One friend says that they understood the pair met in London through Robert but she wasn't interested in him immediately.

The former Epstein staffer, who is not named, says they were told a similar story by Maxwell herself.

The staffer recalled an 'unsettling' visit to Maxwell's Manhattan apartment in the early 1990s when she pulled out eight photo albums of her father's funeral in Israel.

According to journalist Emily Saul: 'Out of the blue Ghislaine said her dad actually connected her with Epstein.

'The idea was Epstein was someone who could take care of her emotionally, not financially. Ghislaine was very clear on that last point'.

Others have had different theories about Maxwell and Epstein's relationship.
