A friend of Ghislaine Maxwell has revealed details of the ‘creepy’ song he had to perform on Jeffrey Epstein’s birthday – with lyrics about ‘schoolgirls crushing’ and ’24-hour erections’.
Society writer Christopher Mason, 54, who lives in Manhattan, writes and plays musical burnt and current satirical songs, and after meeting Maxwell in 1989, he was asked to perform on the millionaire’s 40th birthday.
Speaking to FEMAIL prior to Crime + Investigation’s Survive Jeffrey Epstein, he said he was being led to a room in Epstein’s New York mansion where a ‘gentlemen’s club’ of six or seven men in a black tie and smoking cigars was waiting for him.
He was asked to sit cross-legged on the floor to play his song, while wearing the disgraceful Paedophile’s own karate suit, which Maxwell, 54, had asked him to put on as a practical joke meant to ‘drive Jeffery crazy’ .

Despite having no formal qualifications, Epstein taught physics and math teacher at the prestigious Dalton School in the 1970s and asked Maxwell for lyrics about ‘crushes’ that schoolgirls would have had on him
“I was told to knock on the door,” Christopher told FEMAIL. “Imagine me, sit in the middle of the room, cross-legged in Jeffery’s Karate outfit, which Ghislaine asked me to wear.
“He studied karate, he went for his black belt and she somehow knew he would find out I was wearing his karate outfit and that would drive him a little crazy.”
“I had to sit cross-legged in this room, there was a real sense of it – they drank cognac and smoked cigars – and it was the atmosphere of a men’s club where boys enjoyed each other’s company. It was sort of an undertone of Masters of the Universe. ‘
Maxwell and Epstein’s close relationship meant that Christopher shouldn’t ask anyone else about the billionaire, and despite the song’s lighthearted nature – all the information had to go through her.

‘[It’s] very scary to think about it afterwards, he said. “Usually when writing these songs, I try to talk to as many people as possible, to get a real feel of the person and get as much comedy for the song as possible.
“But in this case, Ghislaine insisted that I don’t talk to anyone else. All information had to come from her. ‘
Despite having no formal qualifications, Epstein taught physics and mathematics at the prestigious Dalton School in Manhattan in the 1970s, after being hired by then-school principal Donald Barr – the father of current U.S. Attorney General, William Barr .
Christopher was asked to include ‘specific strange and quirky’ lyrics in his song, including rules that he was an object of lust for his students during his time at the prestigious school.
“There were very specific things she wanted in the song,” said Christopher. “She wanted me to say that he was very much in love with schoolgirls during his classes at Dalton school. It seemed strange to ask to be in the song.
Maxwell commissioned Christopher to write a song and asked to include lyrics about ‘schoolgirl crushes’ and ’24-hour erections’
“And she wanted me to claim that Jeffery had 24-hour erections, these were strange, quirky things she wanted in the song.”
Epstein’s stint at the elite private school turned out to be the start of four decades spent amid power and privileges.
During his two-year tenure at the school, Epstein met Alan Greenberg, CEO of Bear Stearns, whose two children were students in Dalton.
Greenberg was reportedly impressed by Epstein’s quick wits and offered him a job as a trader at Bear Stearns in 1976.
Epstein quickly found success in the field and started working as a financial advisor. In 1988 he opened his own financial management company, J. Epstein & Company.
Maxwell met Epstein at a party in New York in the early 1990s after an arduous break with former friend Count Gianfranco Cicogna Mozzoni – and Christpher described her at the time as “incredibly engaging, extremely social, stunningly well connected.”

Maxwell is currently in custody in Brooklyn and will be behind bars for 35 years if convicted of charges, while Epstein, who killed himself in prison on similar charges last year, escaped justice
But in November 1991, her media mogul Robert Maxwell, who was estimated to be worth a whopping $ 1.9 billion at the peak of his career, died – and his publishing empire collapsed shortly afterward.
After his death, huge differences in the finances of his companies were revealed, with the discovery that he had completely drained his employee pension funds for an amount of at least $ 900 million.
“The next thing I knew was that her father died and we hear these reports of what a terrible monster he was,” said Christopher.
“The story was that Ghislaine and her family were now penniless and at the time it really seemed like she was out of luck.”
According to Christopher, Maxwell met Epstein after moving into a ‘modest’ one-bedroom apartment in New York, but after starting a relationship with the financier, she soon galavant again on ‘private planes and yachts’.
He said: “In no time, everything seemed to have changed, and she was working with Jeffery and talking about private planes and yachts.
Christopher, pictured in New York this year, revealed that while colleagues had no idea of the magnitude of the couple’s crimes, Epstein was “ generally known to love younger women. ”
“My impression was that her father was a famous monster and she was his favorite and she would do anything to please her father and get his approval.”

Prosecutors say she bought underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein in the 1990s and sexually assaulted them both. She denies the allegations.
Christopher revealed that while peers had no idea of the magnitude of the couple’s crimes, it was well known that Epstein “loved younger women” and “introduced part of Ghislaine’s assignment” to the millionaire to those younger women.
“At the time, I hadn’t heard directly from Ghislaine, but from close friends of Ghislaine,” said Christopher, “that part of their relationship was that they were friends, or were until recently, but Jeffery liked younger women, and part of Maxwell’s assignment was to introduce Jeffery to younger girls.
“At the time, we had no idea what that really meant: they were girls from chic private schools in New York.”
