Convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell is writing a tell-all memoir from behind bars to combat what she calls “misinformation” about her ties to Jeffrey Epstein, can exclusively reveal.
Maxwell, 62, has urged his prison mates to ignore anything they learn about recently released court documents that name Epstein's associates and lay out new details of his twisted grooming empire.
The disgraced socialite has promised to reveal “the truth” in an upcoming book she worked obsessively on during her 20-year sentence at FCI Tallahassee in Florida.
But don't expect the imprisoned woman to finally come clean, insiders warn, because the purpose of Maxwell's memoir will be to exonerate her and, in her opinion, prove she did nothing wrong.

Insiders say the disgraced British socialite wants to clear her name – rather than clear herself – and hopes the tome will exonerate her
According to insiders, Maxwell, who procured minors for sex offender and former friend Jeffrey Epstein, has contradicted reports about the recently released collection of court documents that named his partners as their friends in prison
“Max says the documents in the news are all false or misinformation. “The truth won’t come out until her book does,” our source explained.
“She brags about how great it's going to be, but it sounds like the same old lies she's told a thousand times.”
“She truly believes that she has done nothing wrong and that if people read it, her charges will be dropped.”
Maxwell was convicted of sex trafficking of minors and multiple counts of conspiracy after a federal trial in 2021 revealed how she lured girls as young as 14 into Epstein's clutches.
In a self-serving prison interview last year, she denied knowing about the dead financier's crimes, insisting she regretted ever meeting him and had no idea he was “capable of evil.”
But hundreds of documents released this month relating to a long-debated defamation case filed against Maxwell by Prince Andrew accuser Virginia Giuffre make a mockery of her claims of innocence.
Numerous famous people, including Bill Clinton, Michael Jackson, Donald Trump and Stephen Hawking, were believed to be friends or associates of the late perpetrator, who hanged himself behind bars in 2019 rather than face trial.
But multiple testimonies from victims and former Epstein aides again insisted that Maxwell was “the boss” of his underage sex ring, reaching the same conclusion as the jury in their New York trial.
Federal inmates are prohibited from entering into publishing contracts, but nothing prevents Maxwell from writing a “private manuscript,” an activity protected by the First Amendment, and sending it for distribution to a lawyer or loved one.
She does not have a computer, but has access to a typewriter and is able to familiarize herself with the legal system through her job in the law library at the maximum security prison in Tallahassee, where she has been incarcerated since July 2022.
Maxwell's close relationship with Epstein has been publicly documented over the years, yet she still denies knowledge of the dead financier's crimes

During her first televised prison interview last year with British broadcaster Jeremy Kyle, Maxwell sensationally claimed without evidence that the now-infamous photo of Prince Andrew and Virginia Roberts Giuffre was a fake
“She has access to three lockers in the legal department and moves her manuscript and papers from one to the other because she is so paranoid that someone will steal or leak it,” our source added.
“Apparently it’s already finished, but she’s waiting for the right moment to release it.”
The source explained that during her time behind bars, Maxwell became increasingly withdrawn and bitter, throwing tantrums and barely participating in prison life.
“Max is just not the same optimistic person he was a year ago.” “She's lost all self-confidence, she's depressed and cloudy all day,” the insider said.
“Last Friday on Shabbat, she got there five minutes before the candle was lit. She told the priest he hadn't called her soon enough. She threw candles at him, insulted him and left.'
previously revealed how Maxwell hosted yoga and etiquette classes for her 846 fellow inmates and jogged on the track every day after her arrival in the Sunshine State.
She recently abandoned plans to take part in a prison “marathon,” but rarely moves and goes outside.
“Max didn’t dye her hair. She barely takes care of herself these days. “She still has the law library job, but she's very rude to anyone who asks for help,” our source said.
“I think it's because she's finally realized that she's not getting out of here anytime soon. “But that will all change when her book comes out – or so she thinks.”
Maxwell asked to serve her time at FCI Danbury, the Connecticut employee prison that inspired Orange is the New Black, but was unexpectedly shipped 1,000 miles south to Florida.
Maxwell was convicted on December 29, 2021, on five of the six counts she faced for helping late financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse underage girls

Early reports revealed how the disgraced British socialite was struggling with her new life behind bars, refusing to eat and bitterly complaining to prison authorities that her clothes didn't fit
FCI Tallahassee bosses tried to prevent inmates from learning too much about them by removing from the library the only copy of Filthy Rich – James Patterson's best-selling book about Epstein's crimes.
But when word spread that she had links to the billionaire pedophile, she was despised by her fellow criminals, who accused her of being aloof and having poor hygiene.
Controversy arose when Maxwell used the prison's video visitation system to give an interview to British broadcaster Jeremy Kyle in which she claimed, without evidence, that the now infamous photo of Prince Andrew and Giuffre was a fake.
revealed how the chat landed Maxwell 48 hours in the Special Housing Unit – a “prison within a prison” made up of tiny, gloomy cells where inmates are locked up for 23 hours at a time and fed through slits in the door.
We also told how the Brit earned the title “Prison Karen” after making hundreds of petty complaints about life behind bars, from the poor vegan menu to moaning about a transgender prisoner in the bunk above her had sex.
Maxwell – federal prisoner 02879-509 – also placed two Cuban offenders in solitary confinement after he ratted them out for demanding that she buy them items with her $360 in allowance.
She will be nearly 80 by the time she is released, unless she can successfully appeal her conviction for helping Epstein, who committed suicide in prison while awaiting trial in August 2019. He was 66 years old.
Federal prosecutors dispute claims that she was made a scapegoat for his crimes.
