Christina Oxenberg — a cousin to the British royal family and sister of Catherine Oxenberg — has recalled an odd encounter with Ghislaine Maxwell, in which Jeffrey Epstein’s notorious gal pal had a ladies’ tea party in her underwear and bra, while fanning herself with a copy of Vogue.
In 1991 — just after Maxwell’s media mogul dad Robert died, and before she was mixed up with Epstein — Oxenberg recalls that though the two were not close, “she phoned and asked me to tea. ‘I’m poor!’ she wailed, inviting me to view her new digs. I was expecting a slum, but it was spacious and light-filled on 79th Street.”
She writes that “Ghislaine presided in a white lacy bra and underwear set and lots of jewelry; she jangled as she moved. She explained the lack of clothing was because she was hot and it was summertime. She fanned herself with a copy of Vogue … I can’t remember their names but there were three other females at this tea party. We remained fully clothed.”
Also there was “a baby Yorkshire terrier” named Max, which Maxwell had been gifted, Oxenberg writes. “More than once, she threw the quivering little bundle violently across the room. She thought this was hilariously funny.” Oxenberg’s recollection appears as part of a serialized tell-all memoir that the writer has been updating every week on Patreon.
