Ghislaine Maxwell, who is currently serving her 20-year prison sentence at a Florida jail, was handcuffed and thrown into solitary confinement for 48 hours after she took a media interview in which she complained about her life behind bars.
According to the Daily Mail, the disgraced socialite was accused of profiting off the chit chat.
"About two weeks after the show was on TV, Max was just minding her own business when they came in, turned her around and handcuffed her," a source told the outlet. "She got really upset, she was crying, she was yelling that she hadn't received any money, but nobody saw her again for three days. The SHU is not a nice place. You go in there if you're suicidal, if you fail a drug test or you get in a fight."
"It's like a little box and you're only allowed out to shower once a day. There's no contact from anyone, no privileges, they slide your meals through a slot," the insider added. "Normally people stay there for at least two weeks but she was out in about 48 hours because there was no evidence she was guilty."
“I believe that he was murdered. I was shocked. Then I wondered how it had happened because as far as I was concerned, he was going to … I was sure he was going to appeal," she stated. “And I was sure he was covered under the non-prosecution agreement. But I wasn’t in the indictment. I wasn’t mentioned. I wasn’t even one of the co-conspirators. I honestly wish I had never met him. Looking back now, I probably wish I had stayed in England. But leaving that aside, you know, I tried to leave and start another new job and move on from the end of ’98, ’99."
“So I wish I had been more successful in moving on … because I’d been a banker and so I should have moved on completely," she added.
Maxwell's lawyer Arthur Aidala said his client was not paid for the exclusive interview. "Let me tell you categorically, not a damn penny and nor would we," he said. "Ghislaine Maxwell agreed to be interviewed for the very first time in a series of taped audio and phone calls from behind bars. During that call Maxwell told our interviewers and her brother Kevin, who was also present, that she's suffering from depression, having lost everything."
