Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged “madame,” Ghislaine Maxwell, has reportedly fled to her native France.
The socialite on the run has bunkered down in a plush Paris apartment as the FBI investigates her connection to the billionaire convicted pedophile and alleged sex trafficker, The Sun reported Saturday.
Maxwell, 58, who has kept an extremely low-profile since 2016, is reportedly living in a plush, luxury pad in a haughty neighborhood just off the Champs Elysees and a five-minute drive from Epstein’s multimillion-dollar apartment in the city, according to The Sun.
“Ghislaine is moving locations every month to keep private investigators off her tail and is staying at the residences of trusted colleagues and contacts,” a source told the tabloid.
Maxwell has been accused in civil suits of procuring young girls for Epstein. She has stuck around France during the coronavirus pandemic and plans to try to stay in her home country to avoid possible extradition, the source told The Sun.
“She wants to remain in France for as long as she can to take advantage of extradition laws,” the source said.
Maxwell’s lawyer earlier this month submitted a court filing in a fight to keep sealed court documents about her sex life under wraps.
While Epstein died weeks after he was charged with sex-trafficking minors, Maxwell has been named a co-defendant in multiple civil lawsuits brought by alleged Epstein victims.
