If you were to stumble into the far-flung recesses of the conspiratorial corners of the world wide web, you might just find yourself in one hell of a rabbit hole surrounding the story of Jeffrey Epstein.
The wealthy socialite has a mythos all his own online, where amateur “investigators” have been trying to piece together his internationally-infamous actions to understand what mad Epstein so influential.
One of the prevailing theories, long thought to be out of the realm of reason, was that the previously convicted pedophile was supplying the world’s elite with child sex slaves to enjoy while secretly filming them in order to collect the ultimate in blackmail material.
Once thought to be impossibly unrealistic, the theory just gained a whole lot of weight.
PAEDOPHILE Jeffrey Epstein and his ex-lover Ghislaine Maxwell recorded videos of powerful people having sex with under-age girls, according to a former friend of the pair.
And the reformed jewel thief, who uses the pseudonym William Steel, claims the couple made him watch some to prove how they “owned” people.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, the ex-criminal turned writer tells how he was shown footage involving two high-profile US politicians having sex with minors and two high society figures having a threesome with an under-age girl.
Steel — who is not being paid for this interview — also branded Maxwell, 58, who was arrested last week in connection with trafficking young girls, a wild “nymphomaniac” who would try “everything and anything in bed”.
He says: “I was forced to watch their videos because they were trying to impress me.
“They wanted to convince me of their power and who they held in their grip.
“They boasted about ‘owning’ powerful people.
In a disturbing bit of detail, Steel insisted that Ghislaine Maxwell was far more interested in the braggadocios behavior than Epstein, which puts a renewed emphasis on keeping her alive love enough to stand trial.
