A photo of Ghislaine Maxwell with a black eye emerged this week.
Ghislaine Maxwell, a longtime pal of Bill Clinton, is currently in federal custody at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York awaiting trial.
Lawyers for Jeffrey Epstein’s pimp Ghislaine Maxwell provided of photo of their client in jail with a bruised eye in a court filing Thursday.

Ghislaine’s defense lawyer said his client was unaware of the bruising until she “caught a reflection of her aching eye” in a nail clipper.
“While Ms. Maxwell is unaware of the cause of the bruise … she has grown increasingly reluctant to report information to the guards for fear of retaliation, discipline, and punitive chores. However, there is concern that the bruise may be related to the need for Ms. Maxwell to shield her eyes from the lights projected into her cell throughout the night,” Sternheim wrote, according to ABC News.
Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of New York Alison Nathan ordered the government to justify the use of nightly flashlight checks in Ghislaine’s jail cell.
“Is Ms. Maxwell being subjected to flashlight surveillance every 15 minutes at night? Or any other atypical flashlight surveillance?” Judge Alison Nathan asked prosecutors in a brief order Thursday. “If so, what is the basis for doing so?”
Ghislaine’s lawyers insist their client is not suicidal.
“She’s kept up at night every 15 minutes with lights shined in her eyes so that they can check her breathing,” argued David Markus, Ghislaine Maxwell’s appellate lawyer. “She’s not suicidal. There’s no evidence she’s suicidal. Why is the Bureau of Prisons doing this? They’re doing it because Jeffrey Epstein died on their watch.”
Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial is scheduled to begin on July 12, although her lawyers are requesting a delay after their client was recently hit with an 8-count superseding indictment with fourth victim alleging sexual abuse.
Documents unsealed in the Ghislaine Maxwell case a couple weeks ago show that the DOJ knew years ago that Epstein and Maxwell were running girls as young as 12 but they refused to act for years.
