Ghislaine Maxwell, who was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexually abusing US pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Einstein, is allegedly going to write a book.
It was suggested that Maxwell, also known as “Epstein’s madam”, would write a memoir to combat fake news about her relationship with the US billionaire.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, a source close to Maxwell said, “He thinks he has done nothing wrong. He believes that when people read the book, he will drop the charges.”
The source said, “Max says that the documents given in the news are false. According to him, the truth will only be revealed through the book he will write.”

Maxwell, 62, appealed his conviction in February last year, saying he was the only one who had paid the price for Epstein’s sex ring.
Maxwell also claimed that the judges and prosecutors handling the case had made a series of “fatal errors”.
The source told the Daily Mail that Maxwell was constantly changing the cabinets in which he kept his manuscripts in prison, fearing that they would be stolen or leaked.
The article also claimed that Maxwell has completed the writing of the book and is waiting for the right time to publish it.
The allegations that Maxwell was going to publish his memoirs came just weeks before 215 documents totaling nearly 5,000 pages were made public in the Epstein case.
The documents detail Epstein’s powerful connections around the world and the methods he used to deceive his victims.
Epstein and Maxwell case
Epstein, the hedge fund manager arrested in the US for sexual abuse, pedophilia and creating a prostitution network for dozens of girls under the age of 18, the youngest of whom was 14, committed suicide in his cell at the Metropolitan Prison in Manhattan in 2019.
Epstein’s 66-year-old ex-girlfriend, Ghislaine, was arrested in July 2020 for aiding the financier’s illegal activities.
British-born Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison for “facilitating the sexual abuse of underage girls” in a trial held on June 29, 2022.
Epstein’s close friendship with powerful figures such as then US President Donald Trump, former US President Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew, Duke of York of the United Kingdom was a subject of public debate.
