- British socialite claims poor conditions have caused weight and hair loss
- But prosecutors dismiss the claims as “horror stories” to elicit sympathy

Spoiled Ghislaine Maxwell has spun blatant lies about drastic weight and hair loss in prison to win a soft term but is “perfectly healthy,” prosecutors said ahead of her sentencing today.
The British socialite, who faces up to 55 years in prison for child sex trafficking, “has lived her entire life in extraordinary luxury” and “going on all fours to incarceration is undoubtedly a shocking and unpleasant experience,” the lawyers said. wrote in a scathing note.
But they dismissed the “horror stories” of Maxwell’s prison as cynical lies to elicit sympathy.
The 60-year-old was convicted last December for being a child sex predator who “served” schoolgirls for himself and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein to molest.

Maxwell will face some of her accusers in New York court today, including Briton ‘Kate’, who has been granted permission to speak along with Annie Farmer.
Prince Andrew’s prosecutor, Virginia Giuffre, was also allowed to speak, but will not be present due to a ‘medical issue’.
In a statement, she urged the judge to “cage” the socialite for the rest of her life.
Maxwell committed suicide at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, but prosecutors say her complaints about the appalling conditions there are unfounded.
They said she was telling “blatant lies about her own weight loss,” but medical records showed she weighed only slightly less in April than when she was arrested in July 2020.
US Assistant Attorney Maurene Comey said: “She repeatedly claims that she has suffered significant hair loss, but anyone who has seen the defendant in court can easily see that this is not true. The defendant is perfectly healthy, with a full head of hair.’
Yesterday it turned out that Maxwell relies on a character statement from a fellow inmate. The alleged cocaine dealer said Maxwell was “genuine and nice.”
