A friend of Ghislaine Maxwell is claiming that the secret marriage that was recently reported was to protect the money that she had.
According to The New York Post:
Ghislaine Maxwell secretly wed to safeguard her fortune amid her legal woes, a friend claims in a new report.
Prosecutors say the British heiress is linked to 15 different bank accounts, some with balances of more than $20 million, and that she keeps other accounts in foreign countries containing more than $1 million.
Jeffrey Epstein’s accused madam also snagged $15 million on a sale of an unidentified residence in New York City in 2016, prosecutors said.
Maxwell is being held without bail while she awaits trial.
