Accused sex abuser Ghislaine Maxwell would “never sell out” Prince Andrew by implicating him in any of their pedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes, a close pal told the Telegraph.
“The only way she can walk is if she gives someone up, but that definitely won’t be Andrew,” said Laura Goldman, one of Maxwell’s closest confidantes, to the news site.
“She is so appreciative that when she first came to New York, the duke helped to launch her into high society,’’ Goldman told Telegraph — which published a photo of a grinning Ghislaine sitting with Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey atop the Buckingham Palace thrones of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Andrew’s parents, in 2002.
Spacey has himself been separately accused of sexual misconduct.
“[Maxwell] always talks about what a true friend [Andrew] is. She doesn’t see any reason to speak about him to the authorities,” Goldman said, adding that Maxwell would “never sell out” the royal.
Goldman, a New York stockbroker, said Maxwell once had a “fling” with the queen’s son and that they’ve remained close friends, meeting most recently at the palace last July.
The friend claimed that the prince was clueless as to the child sex-trafficking that Epstein and Maxwell were allegedly involved in. Andrew also has been accused of being served up one of Epstein’s sex slaves, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, when she was 17 — a claim the royal vehemently denies.
“Ghislaine’s always told me that Andrew’s kind of stupid and naive, and if there were girls in the house while he was there, he would have thought they were servants,” Goldman said.c
“All these people thinking he is evil are just wrong. He is just the kind of entitled person who sees everyone as a servant.”
