New details about alleged abuser Ghislaine Maxwell have emerged, including that the British socialite was a 'tyrant' with Jeffrey Epstein's victims and was still in love with him despite his appetite for underage women.
The claim comes from recently released excerpts from a new book by Miami Herald investigative reporter Julie K. Brown titled: Perversion of Justice: The Jeffrey Epstein Story, set to be released this Tuesday.
Brown, who has written extensively about Epstein and Maxwell, spoke to alleged victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre who offered a closer look into the pair's twisted relationship.
Giuffre, 37, has long claimed that Maxwell and Epstein recruited and then trafficked her when she was 17.

'It was clear to Virginia that Maxwell was in love with Epstein. But Epstein and Maxwell rarely slept together or shared intimate moments, like holding hands or kissing,' Brown wrote.
'Virginia said it was because Maxwell couldn't meet Epstein's insatiable desire for girls. Maxwell would accept his obsession as long as those encounters were purely sexual.'

Other revelations in the book include that Giuffre, who has become famous for being the main whistleblower against Epstein's alleged crimes, first met Maxwell and Epstein at former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago country club in 2000 when she was only 16 years old, Fox News reported.
According to the book, Maxwell approached Giuffre at the country club and asked her if she was a masseuse and Giuffre, who went by the name 'Jenna,' said aspired to be one day, which led Maxwell to offer her a job interview to work for Epstein.
'Maxwell suggested that Virginia meet (Epstein) to apply for the job. Virginia was skeptical, pointing out that she didn't have the proper training. But Maxwell assured her that she could learn on the job, noting that it looked as if Virginia was serious about her vocation—based on all the sticky notes she could see poking out of the anatomy book in her hands. She gave Virginia her address and phone number. ''Why don't you come by after work?'' Maxwell left, with a cheery, almost motherly goodbye,' Brown writes.

'Maxwell had prepped her, telling her to treat the session as a tryout. ‘'If you do well,'’ Maxwell told her, '‘then maybe you could become Jeffrey’s traveling masseuse, seeing the world and getting paid well for it.’' In the beginning, it all seemed legitimate. Maxwell showed Virginia some techniques, starting with Epstein’s feet, and then moving to his calves, instructing her to use upward strokes to push the blood up his legs,' the book says.
Brown writes about how Epstein and Maxwell grew closer to Giuffre, asking her about her troubled childhood.

During one interaction, the pair 'teased' Giuffre for being 'a naughty girl,' a label Giuffre denied, Fox reported.
'I’m a good girl. I just was always in the wrong places,' Giuffre told Epstein, to which he replied 'It’s okay,
