A new documentary has made the explosive claim that American heiress Paris Hilton once caught the eye of alleged sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell as a potential recruit for late convicted sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein.
In the fourth and final episode of the damning documentary Surviving Jeffrey Epstein, Christopher Mason, a former acquaintance of Maxwell’s, dropped a major bombshell by alleging that now 58-year-old once expressed her interest in Hilton to a friend of his when the famous socialite, DJ and reality star was just 19 years old.
“A friend of mine was at a party and Ghislaine said, ‘Oh my God, who’s that?’ and was looking at this pretty, young, sort of teenage girl,” Mason said in the Lifetime series. “And she said, ‘Do you know her?’ My friend said, ‘Yes, she’s called Paris Hilton.’ And Ghislaine said, ‘God, she’d be perfect for Jeffrey. Could you introduce us?’”
The documentary then showed a photograph from the Anand Jon Fashion Show in New York on September 18, 2000, which showed Donald Trump, Hilton, and Maxwell seemingly conversing together.
Mason added of the strange relationship between Epstein and Maxwell, “The rumours were Ghislaine was scouring New York finding younger girls to go on dates with Jeffrey. At the time it seemed a bit naughty.'”
It comes as Hilton announced earlier this year that she would be releasing her own documentary titled This Is Paris, where she would be opening up a “heartbreaking trauma” from her past that she “still [has] nightmares about”. However, it has not been revealed if the event was in relation to Maxwell or Epstein.
Much like Netflix’s Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, which was released on the streaming platform in May this year, Surviving Jeffrey Epstein examined the numerous accusations of sex abuse and trafficking faced by the disgraced billionaire prior to his death in 2019, while the final two episodes looked at the allegations against Ghislaine Maxwell.
Maxwell was arrested on July 6 and is currently being held at Metropolitan Detention Centre where she will remain as while she awaits trial on federal sex crime charges that could see her jailed for 35 years.
She has always denied any wrongdoing and has pleaded not guilty to the criminal charges against her.
