Ghislaine Maxwell would explore high-end art galleries and auction houses looking for so-called “Gallerinas” to meet Jeffrey Epstein, a former friend said.
Ms Maxwell has regularly attended events at Christie’s and Sotheby’s on both sides of the Atlantic, the friend said.
“She went to every art gallery opening and was a familiar presence at auctions and parties at Christie’s and Sotheby’s,” the friend said.
“The art world is full of pretty young girls and many of them are young and broke.
“You saw her everywhere, often accompanied by beautiful blondes.
At a party at Christie’s in London, she was spotted talking to Clementine Hambro, one of Princess Diana’s bridesmaids, who this week admitted to having flown twice on the private jet “Lolita Express ”from Epstein.
“I was young, naive and lucky to escape,” Hambro said.
Maria Farmer, one of the victims of serial pedophile Epstein, says she was “picked up” by Epstein and Maxwell at an exhibition in 1995 to celebrate her graduation from the New York Academy of Art.
It is also believed that Epstein met Shelley Lewis – nicknamed his “secret girlfriend” – while working at Christie’s contemporary art department in New York City in the late 1990s.
Maxwell is currently in custody awaiting trial in the United States for allegedly seducing and trafficking minors, sex trafficking and perjury.
She denies all the allegations.
