There is cringe, and then there is like really cringe. Episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm are one level. An older relative loudly arguing politics at a family reunion is another. Beyond both is the story of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

Before you proceed, know you may have to take a shower after reading this total ick story. You’ve probably heard of Epstein, the wealthy financier turned child sex trafficker. In 2008, he pled guilty to charges related to child sex trafficking. His wealthy and powerful friends helped him with a get-out-of-jail-free card. You thought those were only a thing in Monopoly? Epstein faced even worse charges in 2019 before he definitely committed suicide.

The get-out-of-jail-free cards aren’t permanent, so buyer beware. But, how did Epstein befriend people like Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew in the first place? His relationship with British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is one big reason. The couple is a little like the evil version of the Ross and Rachel relationship from Friends. Except instead of a baby keeping them together, it’s a child sex trafficking ring. Well, maybe this isn’t the best metaphor. Like, maybe they’re a power couple from hell? The point is Maxwell helped Epstein. We explore Ghislaine’s weird relationship with Epstein, celebrities and some pretty cringey crimes.
