From beef bourguignon to beef jerky: Ghislaine Maxwell has traded in her palatial New Hampshire cabin for stripped-down confinement at Brooklyn’s Metropolitan prison .
The Oxford-educated British socialite had been laying low during a million-dollar New Hampshire hideaway featuring a cathedral ceiling, a huge floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a gourmet kitchen, consistent with the home’s listing.
Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged right-hand woman cooked stews for herself during a kitchen with two ovens, a six-burner stove and a luxury refrigerator.
Maxwell, 58, on Monday was transferred to the city’s largest federal jail, where she is predicted to be kept during a 10-foot-by-12-foot cell.
The notorious facility is within the midst of a lawsuit that has sounded the alarm over its potential to foster a dangerous coronavirus outbreak. It’s an equivalent facility where officers last month pepper-sprayed inmate Jamel Floyd to death.
In January of 2019, inmates went freezing for weeks when an electrical fire knocked out power within the building, an environment described as a “humanitarian crisis.”
Maxwell are going to be given a T-shirt and other basic clothing at the MDC along side a skinny mattress, pillow and blanket. She could also be allowed to possess an approved religious medallion or book, like the Bible — but cannot have the other personal possessions.
After schmoozing among the worldwide elite, Maxwell has apparently had a difficult time socializing together with her fellow inmates. One inmate at a replacement Hampshire jail where she was briefly held reportedly called her a “snooty b—h.”
Injuring a high-profile inmate like Maxwell “would be a badge of honor,” former MDC warden Cameron Lindsay said.
“You go from living a life like Maxwell to all or any of a sudden being during a situation where you’re being strip-searched and having people check out your body cavities,” Lindsay added.
