The plot surrounding the case of Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire pedophile who died under strange circumstances in August 2019, promises to continue adding revealing chapters.
After nearly 10 months of searching, U.S. federal authorities on Thursday, July 2, captured Ghislaine Maxwell, the close collaborator and alleged sex recruiter of the financial sex offender.
There is a lot of expectation about what Maxwell will testify to. Throughout her life, the daughter of billionaire Robert Maxwell has been associated with well-known celebrities from the world of art and politics.
Together with Epstein they traveled on the financier’s private plane, called the “Lolita Express,” to Epstein’s private Caribbean island, sometimes called “Orgy Island” or “Sin Island.”
The allegations are that the couple trafficked underage girls to be abused there. Many of these celebrities are said to have participated in these sex parties.
While the justice system continues its investigation, which could yield revealing data in the coming weeks, here is a review of some of the celebrities who were caught on camera while talking to or interacting with Ghislaine Maxwell.
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is one of the people who had the closest ties with Epstein and Maxwell.
In fact, according to records, the Democratic leader flew at least 27 times on the Lolita Express to Epstein’s Caribbean island.
As for photos linking Clinton to Maxwell, in January the New York Post revealed that the former president appeared in a photo with Maxwell on the Lolita Express during a 2002 trip to Africa that Clinton took to allegedly raise awareness about poverty and AIDS.
Clinton was also photographed with Chauntae Davies, who worked as a personal masseuse for Epstein and accused the financier of raping her on several occasions.
But that’s not all. Maxwell also participated in the Clinton Global Initiative in 2013. At that time Maxwell’s name was strongly linked to Epstein’s alleged sexual abuse allegations.
Such was Maxwell’s closeness to the Clinton family that Epstein’s recruiter was in a privileged position at the wedding of Chelsea Clinton, the former president’s daughter, in 2010.
A year earlier, Maxwell had vacationed on a yacht with Chelsea in 2009.
“She ended up being close to the family because she and Chelsea ended up becoming close,” a person familiar with the relationship acknowledged to Politico.
One of the major players in the Epstein case is the Duke of York, Prince Andrew.
The son of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom and Prince Philip is pictured in 2001 with Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who was then 22 years old. Giuffre claimed that Epstein ordered her to have sex with Andrew.

Rolling Stone lead singer Mick Jagger was photographed with Maxwell while they were sharing a dinner in Beverly Hills in 2011.
Eccentric billionaire Elon Musk was captured in a photo with Maxwell during a Vanity Fair party in 2014.
The Tesla executive denied any connection to Epstein’s right-hand man.
“She photobombed me at a Vanity Fair Oscar party (…). Don’t know Ghislaine at all,” tweeted Musk on Friday.
The renowned English model Naomi Campbell was photographed several times with Maxwell.
One of Epstein’s accusers, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, claimed that Campbell was present at the pedophile’s sex parties.
While he was mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg was photographed with Maxwell at a book party at the Four Seasons restaurant in 2013.
Sarah, Duchess of York
Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, also appears in a photo with Maxwell from 2003.
“I deeply regret that Jeffrey Epstein became involved in any way with me. I abhor pedophilia and any sexual abuse of children and know that this was a gigantic error of judgment on my behalf,” Ferguson said in a 2011 Telegraph interview.
Roger Waters, the co-founder of Pink Floyd, was photographed in 2009 while Maxwell was talking in his ear at a book party in New York.
Famous comedian and actor Chris Tucker was also present at the 2002 trip to Africa with Maxwell and Clinton, according to a New York Post report.
Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey, who was charged with sexual misconduct toward minors and convicted of aggravated indecent assault, was also in Epstein’s social circle.
The New York Post reported that the artist was on Epstein’s plane that flew to Africa on the alleged Clinton Foundation charity mission.
