As Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial neared completion today in New York, four of her siblings arrived at court arm-in-arm.

Kevin, Isabel, Ian and Christine linked arms as they arrived at the courthouse Monday morning ahead of closing arguments in their sister’s trial.

Isabel and Kevin were in court on all days. They chatted or made eye contact often with each other during breaks.

It is believed that this marks the first occasion all four of them have been together since November 29, when the trial started. 

Prosecutors labelled Ghislaine Maxwell a ‘sophisticated predator’ who ‘preyed on vulnerable kids’ as they presented their closing argument this morning. 

Alison Moe, assistant US attorney for Alison Moe stated Monday to the jury that “She was an intelligent predator who knew exactly how she was doing it.” “She used the same strategy over and over again.” 

She added that “She was an adult woman who preyed over vulnerable children,” “Maxwell was at the heart of the entire operation.” 

The prosecution reaffirmed the claims made by Jeffrey Epstein during their weeks-long trial, that Maxwell was Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘right hand’ and caused young girls ‘deep’ or ‘lasting damage. 

The prosecution has called Ghislaine Maxiwell a “sophisticated predator” in closing arguments.

Alison Moe, assistant US attorney for Alison Moe stated Monday to the jury that “She was an intelligent predator who knew exactly how she was doing it.” “She used the same playbook over and over again.”

Ghislaine is supported daily by Isabel Maxwell and Kevin Maxwell. 

Sarah Ransome, Epstein accuser, was seen also arriving in the hope of being convicted.  

Maxwell stated that she will not testify in an emotional moment during her final defense on Friday.

Maxwell raised her arms with both hands as Bobbi Sternheim, Maxwell’s lawyer, wrapped her arms around her.

Maxwell was asked by Judge Alison Nathan if she would testify, as she was entitled to.

Maxwell confidently spoke in an English cut glass accent.

And after just two days and nine witnesses, Maxwell’s defense rested.

Maxwell was being led back into prison after the day ended. Isabel, Maxwell’s sister, was standing in public gallery making a prayer sign.

Maxwell hugged each of her attorneys one-by-one before leaving the courtroom.

One photo shows Maxwell kissing the pedophile’s cheek with her arms wrapped around him. Many witnesses have said that Epstein was their boyfriend or girlfriend, and Ghislaine was their girlfriend.

Maxwell’s second defense day began with a rough start on Friday. One witness declined to answer a subpoena and another stated they would accept the fifth. A third wasn’t being called.

The defense was able to call witness Dr. Eva Andersson, 60, an internist and former girlfriend of Epstein who is now married to hedge fund billionaire Glenn Dubin. Glenn (64), was once accused of having had sex when Virginia Roberts was a teen, which he has denied. 

She wore black pants, a black blazer and gray black dresses. Her blonde hair was long enough to reach her shoulders, as she refused to take part in orgies.  

Maxwell accused Jane stated that she had witnessed an “Eva” having orgies at Epstein’s Palm Beach home with other girls in 1990s as a teenager.

Jeff Pagliuca Maxwell’s lawyer said to Dubin, “I am sorry for asking such questions.” Do you have any experience with Jane in a group?

Dubin replied, “Absolutely not.”

Pagliuca stated: “Were you ever involved in a group sexualized massaging with Jane?”

Dubin declared: “I don’t have.” 

Dubin claimed that Epstein had been with her ‘off-and-on’ since 1983, when she met Maxwell.

Glenn Dubin married her in 1994. However, she said that Epstein was always a friend and she socialized and flew private with Epstein with her children.

Pagliuca asked Andersson about Epstein’s relationships with her children. Andersson replied that she was.

Pagliuca inquired if Epstein liked her three children. The goddaughter was Epstein. Dubin answered, “Yes he was”.

Dubin responded to a question about Epstein’s popularity with her children, saying that they were.

Pagliuca wanted to know if Epstein had a relationship like an uncle and so gave Epstein the nickname F, which is shorthand for Jeff. Andersson agreed.

Dubin received a variety of flight log entries, including one in which Epstein listed her as flying with Jane.

Dubin answered the question, “I don’t remember ever meeting that person.”

Dubin (seen leaving court Friday) dated Epstein for 11 years in the 80s. Dubin's husband is hedge fund manager Glenn Dubin, who has been accused of having sex with Virginia Roberts when she was a teen

Dubin is seen in court leaving Friday. He was married to Epstein for eleven years during the 80s. Glenn Dubin is Dubin’s hedge fund manager husband, and has been accused in court of having sex during her teenage years with Virginia Roberts.

The defense was able to call two witnesses Friday, including Eva Dubin, Epstein's former longtime girlfriend and former miss Sweden

Friday was Friday for the defense, which allowed two witnesses to be called, Eva Dubin and Eva Dubin. Eva Dubin is Epstein’s longtime girlfriend, as well as former Miss Sweden.

Pagliuca presented Dubin with a photograph that she found in Epstein’s home. She said it showed Epstein’s youngest daughter.

Dubin claimed she’d never seen the picture before, in an instant that seemed to shock defense.

Defense was able call Dr. Eva Andersson (pictured together), 60. She is an ex-girlfriend of Epstein and is now married with Glenn Dubin, a billionaire hedge fund investor. 

Pagliuca asked Dubin to testify: “Did you witness any inappropriate conduct between Mr. Epstein or any teenage women?”

She responded, “I did not.”

Alison Moe, a cross-examination prosecutor asked Dubin whether she knew if Epstein and Maxwell had been in an open relationship between 1994-192000.

She said, “I can’t really tell if they did” or not.

Dubin said that her memory problems were caused by an unknown medical condition. She has previously spoken publicly about fighting breast cancer.

“It is very difficult for me to recall anything further back,” she said. Sometimes, I don’t remember anything from the previous month.

“My family notices, and I notice.” This has been an issue for a while.

Maxwell looked at Dubin as she entered the court and then turned her back to follow her gaze.

Maxwell stared at Dubin intently, sat up in her chair and pondered her actions during Dubin’s testimony. 

During a 2016 deposition which was revealed publicly for the first time in 2019,  Rinaldo Rizzo, a butler for the Dubins, tearfully described seeing a 15-year-old girl in his boss’s kitchen in 2005.

Rizzo claimed that he witnessed a Swedish 15-year old girl being held captive on Epstein’s private Island and used as a slave sex.

Rizzo stated in his deposition, that Maxwell and Epstein brought the girl to their home while they were on vacation with the Dubins. 

What happened to the Maxwell other children? While Ghislaine is awaiting trial, Femail tells the story of the nine siblings’ very rocky financial fortunes, including bankruptcy, divorce, and fatal car crashes.

It is easy to see why the Maxwell brothers are so cursed.

His youngest and most beloved is Ghislaine. She is a disgraced socialite, who awaits trial for a series of charges related to trafficking minors to Jeffrey Epstein. 

Maxwell denies any charges and could face a maximum of 80 years imprisonment if convicted of sexual abuse, procuring young girls to Epstein, or other sex crimes that date back many decades. 

Ian Maxwell (65, seventh Maxwell child) has long been an outspoken supporter of Ian’s sister.

Ian has seen his fair share in court. In the 1990s, he and younger brother Kevin stood trial for their part in their father’s £460 million Mirror Group pension fraud. 

What about the Maxwell kids?  

MailOnline explores Ghislaine’s fate. It includes his brilliant scientist brother who ran to Argentina for safety, Maxwell bullying children and twins who went on to become dotcom millionaires.

Robert Maxwell, (back row, center) is pictured sitting with Betty Maxwell and their seven children, at Headington Hill Hall in Oxford. Ian was eleven years old when this photograph was taken. Isabel was 17 and was going to grammar school. Kevin was eight and was still at preparatory. Anne (2), the second oldest child, was also enrolled in her second year of undergraduate studies at Balliol College. Michael, Michael’s eldest son, had been in a fatal car accident that left him permanently incapacitated.

Michael, the tragedy first-born son who was killed in his 20s 

Robert Maxwell was married to Elisabeth “Betty” Meynard, in 1945. They had nine children together over the following 15 years. 

In a 1995 interview, Elisabeth talked of how they were recreating his childhood family who were killed in the Holocaust.

The couple’s eldest child, Michael (born shortly after their marriage), was also born. But his life was cut short. 

Michael suffered severe injuries at age 15 after his driver, who was only 48 hours away from the birth of Ghislaine, fell asleep behind the wheel. 

Michael went into a coma. He never recovered consciousness. He Eight years later, he died.

Philip, 73 years old, was a brilliant scientist who fled Argentina to become a doctor. 

'Poor Philip' (pictured in 1971) as his friends knew him, was a brilliant scientist and mathematician who won a scholarship to Balliol College, Oxford, aged 16.

It is not known where he lives, but he joined his siblings for their 2019 reunion, pictured

Poor Philip (left in 1971), as his friends called him, was an eminent scientist and mathematician. He won a scholarship at Balliol College Oxford aged 16. He fled Argentina in the end. Although it is unknown where he lives now, he was there to join his siblings at their 2019 reunion (right).

Poor Philip, his friends called him. He was an incredibly gifted scientist and mathematician, who received a scholarship at Balliol College in Oxford when he was just 16.

Philip hated his domineering father, so he fled Argentina immediately to flee. [him] as possible’.

Robert wanted them to be together, but Nilda was against their wishes and they fell apart irretrievably.

The marriage didn’t last — Nilda moved out taking their daughter Marcella with her and a second marriage also failed.

Philip was last heard of living in a £65-a-week flat in North London trying to be a writer. What is the matter? He bullied his father. 

For a 2019 London reunion, he was reunited with his siblings

Anne ex-actress, called “ugly” by her father

Anne Maxwell, the eldest daughter, dreamed of becoming an actress before retraining as a teacher. She was bullied by her tyrant father over her looks. Pictured, in 1968

Anne with her siblings at the 2019 family reunion

Anne Maxwell, Anne’s eldest child, dreamed about becoming an actress and then retraining to become a teacher. Because of her beauty, she was subject to bullying from her father. Photo taken in 1968.

Her father was shocked when her acting career failed. Both you and Pope John Paul II are both horrible actors.

Anne, who studied French and Italian at Oxford before she gave up on her dream of becoming a star, reportedly worked as a TV producer.

After graduating as a Montessori teacher and marrying an osteopath, she is believed to now be a Surrey hypnotherapist, although her practice may have been under another name.

After the death of her father at the tender age of 68, she has been quiet.  

Isabel (71), a fireball who lost her Internet fortune 

Described in The Jerusalem Post as 'a fireball' who is 'always in your face', Isabel (pictured in 1968) was always the Maxwell

Isabel Maxwell in 1992

Isabel was described by The Jerusalem Post in The Jerusalem Post, as an “always-in your face” fireball who made a huge fortune during the dotcom boom.

Isabel, once described by The Jerusalem Post to be a ‘fireball’ and ‘always on your face’ was the Maxwell watch.

Although she didn’t want to work for the family business, she graduated from Oxford with a degree of modern languages and an Edinburgh master’s. She then became a TV reporter.

She moved to California in 1981 to become a TV producer, and then she made a 1968 film starring Neil Young. She said that it wasn’t ET. . . More a labor of love.

Technology was her path to success. Christine, her twin, co-founded Magellan in 1992, one of the first internet search engines.

At one point worth £50million, Isabel, above in 2019, was declared bankrupt in 2015

At one point worth £50million, Isabel, above in 2019, was declared bankrupt in 2015

In 1996, they sold it for shares in a rival company Excite — which rocketed in value, giving the sisters a joint £100 million fortune and landing them a place on the Sunday Times Rich list in 1999. 

But her fortune began to wane and she was declared bankrupt by the court in 2015. 

Her marriages were two. Dale Djerassi was her first husband. She had a son. After that, she married David Hayden (Magellan cofounder).

Al Seckel, her illusionist husband, was once an important player in California’s literary, academic, and celebrity scenes. His reputation for throwing parties for the good and famous was well-deserved. Jeffrey Epstein was a close friend.

Two men set up a science conference called Mindshift, which was held on Epstein’s Little Saint James island in 2009.

Seckel married Isabel in Malibu, but they were never legally united. He had neglected to file paperwork to annul their second marriage to Denice Lewis (a former model who was featured in Cliff Richard’s music videos, Elton John, Bryan Ferry and Elton John). In memorial paintings where the ashes are mixed with pigment, she became an artist.

Seckel was also guilty of forgetting to pay off numerous debts that he owed over the years, which resulted into endless legal proceedings. 

Seckel was killed by a falling rock in 2015 near his home, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie. Isabel is still living in France’s south. 

Christine, 71, dotcom boom millionaire

Unlike her twin sister Isabel, Christine, pictured, entered the family business and spent years working for her father - and even published a bestselling book for his Pergamon

She later made her fortune online

Christine (pictured right and left) was different to her twin sister Isabel. She entered the family business, spent many years with her father, and even wrote a bestseller for Pergamon.

Christine, unlike her twin sister Isabel was a businesswoman and worked for years for her father. She even wrote a bestseller for Pergamon.

After attending senior school at Milham Ford School in Oxford, she entered Pitzer College, Claremont, California, graduating in 1972 with a BA with a major in Latin American Studies and Sociology.

In September 1973, Maxwell enrolled at Oxford Brookes University’s Lady Spencer Churchill College of Education and obtained a post graduate teaching certificate the following year. 

Christine continues to work at The University of Texas. Pictured, at the 2019 reunion

After graduating from Texas Tech, she received a Master’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.

Christine worked as an editor at Pergamon Press Publishers. She was co-founded in 1970 by her father and continued to work for him in the 1980s. In Oxford, she was also a teacher. 

In 1998 she gave a rare interview and spoke about the many years that her father spent publishing. She said, “Both my parents had strong work ethics, which they instilled into me and my siblings when I was very young.

‘They also communicated a very clear understanding that advantages always come with responsibilities — that there was no such thing as a free ride.’ 

She published The Dictionary Of Perfect Spelling in 1977 with Pergamon Press, her father. It contained 20,000 words and was aimed at secondary school students. It was an international bestseller that has been repeatedly reprinted. 

The dotcom boom was a dominant force in the 1980s as well as the 1990s.  Christine bought Information on Demand in 1982, one of the first information brokers. Later, Research on Demand was renamed.

Christine was the co-author of one the first printed reference guides for the Internet, The McKinley Internet White Pages.

She co-founded the software company Chiliad, continuing her tradition.

Christine He is married to Roger Malina (an astrophysicist) and they have three children.

Christine, according to her LinkedIn profile is a program manager for learning technologies at The University of Texas. 

Karine was diagnosed with leukemia when she was a young girl. 

Robert and Elisabeth lost their sixth child Karine to leukemia at the age of three in 1957. 

The parents’ grief at her death had an impact on how they would view Ghislaine’s birth four years later.  

Ian Maxwell, an interviewer, explained that Karine’s passing upset the family’s balance of “four boys and four daughters”. 

“So, when my parents had another baby girl [Ghislaine]It was truly magic. This allowed four boys to recreate the experience, and four girls,’ Ian stated. It was Christmas Day that she was born, which added to her sense of wonder.

Ian's first wife was an American former college basketball star and model called Laura Marie Plumb, pictured on the first day of the pension fund trial

Ian was married to Laura Marie Plumb who was a former American college basketball star. 

Taunted mercilessly at home — his father would ridicule him in front of visiting friends – Ian still decided to join the family business. 

His poor treatment of him continued, and he was unfavourably compared to Kevin, his younger brother.

In the aftermath of their father’s death, Ian, then 35, and Kevin, 32, assumed control of the company and stood trial for their part in their father’s £460 million pension fraud.

Although they were cleared, Maxwell’s name was still a mystery for many years. Business opportunities also limited themselves to foreign ventures.

Ian was married to Laura Marie Plumb, an American college basketball player and model.

When she was working to establish a television cable company in London, they met. The couple married in 1991 — the year of Robert Maxwell’s death — and the ensuing media attention put Laura under great strain. She was seen sobbing on the day Ian and Kevin were detained. They divorced in 1996.

He married Tara Dudley Smith next, who was the daughter of an ex-Army officer and Jockey Club steward. That relationship ended too. Cecilia French was his Director of Public Protection in the Home Office. He eventually found love with her.

After pursuing opportunities for business in telecom, energy, and property, mostly from outside of the UK, Ian, Kevin, and their partner, Kevin, said that they felt the need to help the greater good.

They launched an organization in Greece similar to Prince’s Trust in Greece three years ago in middle of financial crisis. It has since raised many millions of Euros and assisted in several hundred business launches. 

Maxwell and Kevin established the UK’s Combating Jihadist Terrorism (CoJit) think tank in September 2018, with the goal of improving our understanding of terrorism. 

He gave a series of interviews in recent months about his sister’s case, including one on her trial.  

In March 2021 he told The Times Epstein had ruined his youngest sibling’s life — and she is paying for the US authorities’ failure to prosecute him.

Kevin, aged 62, is Britain’s greatest ever bankrupt 

The cleverest son and driving force of the family, Kevin (pictured in 1991) was crestfallen by his father's death, saying that he 'missed his presence and ability to dominate'

Kevin, the smartest and most important son of his family and the driving force behind their household, was devastated by the death of his father. He said that he “missed him’s presence and his ability to rule”. Kevin admitted that he was completely in awe.

Kevin Maxwell was the Maxwell brother who expressed remorse publicly for Robert Maxwell’s crimes.

Pandora Warnford Davis-Davis, the first wife of his father-in-law Robert called him a ‘fat fraudster.

Kevin, pictured in 2019, dreamed of making a fortune in the late 1990s but it wasn't to be

Kevin (pictured in 2019) dreamt of making it big in the 1990s, but that wasn’t possible.

When, in June 1992, Kevin was arrested and charged with fraud after hundreds of millions disappeared from the Maxwell empire’s employee pension funds, she appeared at the window of their home at dawn and shouted: ‘P*** off, or I’ll call the police!’ Only to realize that the callers in the morning were police.

After 23 years of marriage and seven children, they separated in 2007. Pandora last saw her living in Oxford renting a room on Airbnb.

Soon after his arrest, Kevin became Britain’s biggest ever bankrupt when a £407 million bankruptcy order was made against him.

After the three-year mandatory period, bankruptcy was finally discharged in 1995. 

And, after an Old Bailey trial that cost taxpayers £12 million in legal aid, he was acquitted of fraud a year later — even though a subsequent Whitehall report concluded Kevin bore a ‘heavy responsibility’ for what happened. 

Telemonde was founded in the USA by Telemonde. He hoped it would become the Maxwell-comeback story. This was not the case. 

When Telemonde floated in 1999, Kevin looked on course to becoming a multi-millionaire; on paper he owned a seven per cent stake, worth £16 million.

But by 2001, the company had debts of more than £100 million and failed. Kevin then began to invest in high-end commercial properties.

In 2011, his venture was ruined when he was removed from the board of directors for 8 years. 

They also founded their think tank, which was established in 2018 by the brothers. 


Six charges were brought against Maxwell 


Incentives to encourage minors (captured for illegal sex) (5 year maximum sentence).  

 Incentive to minor to travel and engage in illegal sexual acts (20 years)

Conspiracy for minors to be transported with the intent of engaging in criminal sexual activities (20 years).

Transport of minors with the intent to engage criminal sexual activity (minimum 10 years, maximum life)

The Sex Trafficking Confessional

Sex Trafficking in a Minor 

Ghislaine Maxwell also faces two charges of perjury but those counts are due to be tried after her sex crimes trial. 

She was accused of giving testimony in defamation proceedings in which she testified in 2016.  


Prosecutors allege that Maxwell groomed 3 girls in 1994 to 1997 for Epstein. 

The indictment does not name them, however, she is alleged to have targeted them in London.

Maxwell would, according to some reports, befriend the girls and ask them questions about their lives as well as their education. It is alleged that Maxwell would take the girls to movies, and then go shopping with them, putting them at ease. This trust was enough to allow her to deliver them to Epstein later.

Prosecutors say that she undressed herself in front of the girls and asked sexual questions to ‘normalize the abuse’ later. 

The prosecutors claim that she not only assisted Epstein, but also took part in some of the abuse. 

This allegedly involves’sexualized group massaging’. 

Indictment states that Maxwell encouraged the girls to borrow money from Epstein and pay him for education.
