Ghislaine Maxwell, who is awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges, sells her London home to cover her legal fees, the Wall Street Journal reports.
“Ghislaine will be sad to see the house sold,” Brian Basham said. “She is devastated by all of this. She will have a lot of good memories. She will be terribly sad to sell the house. It was her refuge in London.”
According to the New York Post, the sale of Maxwell’s home is almost complete. The buyer deposited over $100,000 into Maxwell’s Barclays bank account, which led to it being frozen. Her brother, Ian Maxwell, believes it was a ruse to cover the bank’s chief executive officer, Jes Staley, who visited Jeffrey Epstein’s home in the Caribbean in the past.
“We have no idea what Staley got up to with Epstein, but whatever it was, it’s his problem, and he should not be taking his problem out on my sister,” Ian Maxwell said. “Staley is playing at Pontius Pilate with my sister’s life.”
Maxwell’s home is also where Prince Andrew was photographed with Epstein’s accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
