Ghislaine Maxwell’s boyfriend claims ‘spoiled and titled’ Prince Andrew ‘doesn’t know much’ about what happened at pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s mansions because ‘he’s not so intelligent’ and didn’t ask questions
- Laura Goldman asked how much the Duke knew about Jeffrey Eptein’s actions
- Ms. Goldman, who appeared on Good Morning Britain, said he “doesn’t know much”
- Maxwell appeared in court on Thursday, charged with helping Epstein ‘groom girls’
A friend of Ghislaine Maxwell claims that the ‘spoiled and titled’ Prince Andrew doesn’t know much ‘about what Jeffrey Epstein did.
Laura Goldman, who appeared on Good Morning Britain today, was asked how much the Duke knew about the convicted pedophile’s actions.
She replied, “Prince Andrew doesn’t know much. Partly because he’s not that intelligent, and he’s spoiled and entitled, so he didn’t really ask about what happened. ‘
Maxwell appeared in court in the United States on Thursday, accused of helping disgraced financier Epstein identify, befriend, and care for several girls, including one as young as 14.
Ms. Goldman defended her close friend this morning, telling presenters Piers Morgan and Susannah Reid that Maxwell was a “victim.”

She said, “I believe in supporting my girlfriend, she’s a victim of Jeffrey Epstein like many other people, it doesn’t mean that what she did was right, she should pay for her crimes.”
As to why Maxwell didn’t leave Epstein after his 2008 conviction, she said, “He didn’t let her leave. She often tried. There were things he had with her that would have destroyed her life if she had left in an angry way. ‘
Her close friend also explained why Maxwell went into hiding after Epstein died and did not go directly to the FBI.
She said, “What she told me and her defense is that she did what her lawyers told her to do. They felt that entering due to the circus atmosphere of the case and feeding insanity, you know it’s kind of like the salem witch trials 2.0.
“They felt she couldn’t go to the FBI and have a somewhat civil conversation.”

Ms. Goldman added that she knew her friend was having problems because she ate a lot and was “famous for not eating.”
The former investment banker previously said that British socialite regarded Andrew as a friend and “would never say anything” about him to researchers.
Ms. Goldman said on Saturday that she would have to “go” on BBC Radio 4’s Today program today for a plea deal with prosecutors.
Asked if Maxwell would speak about the Duke as part of the investigation, Mrs. Goldman said, “She has always told me she would never, ever say anything about him.
“I think she felt he was her friend and would never say anything about him.
“She felt in the 90’s when her father died that Prince Andrew was there for her.”
Ms. Goldman said she last spoke to Maxwell “a few weeks ago” before she was arrested in New Hampshire on Thursday, adding, “She knew she was going to be at the end of the road.”
