Ghislaine Maxwell has 'secret copies of Epstein's sex tapes' that could expose world's most elite, claims friend
GHISLAINE Maxwell has "secret copies of Jeffrey Epstein's sex tapes" that could expose some of the world's most powerful people, a friend has claimed.
The ex-girlfriend and alleged "madam" of convicted child sex offender Epstein was busted by the FBI in New Hampshire on Thursday and charged with sex trafficking.
A former friend of Maxwell's said the disgraced socialite had sex tapes of Epstein and others "squirrelled away".
"Ghislaine has always been as cunning as they come. She wasn't going to be with Epstein all those years and not have some insurance," the friend told the Daily Mail.
"The secret stash of sex tapes I believe Ghislaine has squirrelled away could end up being her get out of jail card if the authorities are willing to trade. She has copies of everything Epstein had. They could implicate some twisted movers and shakers.
"If Ghislaine goes down, she's going to take the whole damn lot of them with her."
The friend said Epstein liked to film himself with young girls, as well as others who had underage sex.
"He wanted to make sure he had something to hold over the rich and powerful men who took advantage of his sick largesse," the friend said.

Epstein's alleged 'madam', who used her late father's millions to throw lavish parties before her spectacular fall from grace, is now facing up to 35 years in prison on sex-trafficking charges.
The 58-year-old was reportedly on suicide watch at the jail before being moved to a New York prison at 4.30am on Monday, with guards watching her around the clock to make sure nothing happened to her.
This follows the death of her ex-lover Epstein, who killed himself in his cell while awaiting trial last year.
Maxwell was arrested by the FBI at her $1million bolthole on Thursday and charged with six offences, including child grooming and perjury.
Armed agents reportedly swooped on Maxwell’s remote home in the woods, called Tuckedaway, and smashed down her front door in a dramatic early morning raid which startled neighbors.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a survivor of Epstein's sex-trafficking ring, said that during Maxwell's court hearing last week, she heard a "very loud British woman screaming 'why is this happening and how could this happen?'"
There are fears that she could dodge justice by using the controversial plea deal her pal Epstein cooked up with prosecutors in 2008, although her alleged victims are hoping justice will be served.
Virginia also says Prince Andrew "should be panicking" because "Ghislaine doesn't really care about anyone else but Ghislaine."
Prince Andrew denies Virginia's allegations and any involvement in Jeffrey Epstein's sex-trafficking ring.
