Convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell has been in prison since June 2022, when she received her sentence.
Maxwell was found guilty of five out of six charges by a jury.
Maxwell, 60, was the well-known wingwoman for the accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
A socialite turned sex trafficker.
The millionaire Epstein committed suicide, according to authorities, in a Manhattan federal lockup in August 2019, while he was awaiting trial.
Epstein’s client list, which purportedly includes many high-profile individuals, has so far not made it into the public domain despite the U.S. Justice Department’s tendency to leak other kinds of sensitive information.
Many high-profile names have been leaked from Epsteins’s list, among them Britain’s Price Andrew.
Those following the story are eagerly awaiting the release of the names on the client list.
Maxwell is currently serving her 20-year sentence at a low-security, amenity-filled federal jail in Tallahassee, Florida.
The holding facility is aptly nicknamed “Club Fed”.
The cushy prison is home to many convicted felons, at least one of whom is a notorious murderer.
Narcy Novack, 65, was married to Fontainebleau Hotel heir Ben Novack Jr. but apparently grew concerned that she might be abandoned with just a relatively small prenuptial agreement payoff upon learning her husband was reportedly having an affair with a porn star.
A socialite turned black widow.
Novack had met her future husband at a strip club, and they married in 1991.
Opening in 1954, The Fontainebleau is an upscale hotel in Miami, considered one of the most historically and architecturally significant hotels on Miami Beach.
“In her fury, Novack hatched a plot to keep hold of his [approximately $10 million] fortune,” a London-based tabloid, The Mirror, asserted.
According to Fox News, this indeed was not the typical love triangle-related breakup:
Novack “hired hit men to bludgeon 86-year-old Bernice Novack to death with a monkey wrench in April 2009.
Bernice was the mother of Novak’s estranged husband, Ben Novack.
Bernice, 86, was found dead in the garage of her Fort Lauderdale home on April 5, 2009.
Initially, cops believe she died after a fall.
Bernice was married to Ben Novack Sr., who built and owned the famous Miami Beach hotel. He passed away in April 1985.
Three months later, Narcy Novack had her cheating husband brutally bumped off.
They were at a convention in Rye Brook, New York when she ordered her assassins to strike again inside their room at the Hilton Hotel.
The straying spouse was beaten to death with dumbbells and had his eyes gouged out, at Narcy Novack’s insistence, so he could never look at another woman again.”
After Ben was battered to death months later, detectives reopened the case of his mother’s death (with the $15 million fortune at stake) and discovered that the elderly woman had been beaten to death with a monkey wrench.
The hit men provided evidence against the fortune-hunting Novack and her accomplice brother in a 2012 trial in exchange for a plea deal.
One of Ben Novack’s sexual conquests was a porn star, Rebecca Bliss.
Narcy wanted her gone and tried to bribe her, which she turned down.
Reportedly, Narcy then snarled, “If I can’t have him, no one will.”
Made famous in a film, actress Paz Vega portrayed Narcy Novack in the tawdry 2015 made-for-TV Lifetime movie called “Beautiful & Twisted.”
Now it seems both Novack and Maxwell are enjoying the same accommodations in Florida.
And the two socialites have found each other.
It seems the two are now pals.
According to what a source told the Mirror, a U.K. tabloid, “Once inside, Ghislaine gravitated towards Narcy…Together, they spend hours talking, laughing and joking.”
There in prison, the British socialite made the acquaintance of Narcy Novack, who is incarcerated pursuant to a life sentence without parole for putting the hits on her wealthy husband and his mother in what might be a pernicious form of estate planning.
Their shared backgrounds notwithstanding, the Mirror noted that while Maxwell was born into privilege as the beloved daughter of disgraced publishing baron Robert Maxwell, Novack clawed her way up via stripping and sex.
Novack would meet men at the strip clubs where she danced before moving up to richer men, and finally settling on the hotel heir.
As a sex trafficker, Maxwell is not unfamiliar with that background.
The Mirror claimed that “the pair have become close over a shared taste for the millionaire’s lifestyle, long sentences and their ages,” insiders have claimed, Biz Pac Review reported.
Maxwell’s prison pal is apparently a VIP behind bars, and that prestige is transferable to some degree, according to the Mirror’s source:
“Because of her length of time inside and the brutality of her crime, she is treated like a female don. All the younger girls address her as ‘Miss Novack’ out of respect.
Ghislaine will have a modicum of protection through her friendship, but given their ages and millionaire backgrounds, they were always destined to get on well.”
A friendship with a protection factor for Maxwell.
