BROOKLYN, NY. (THECOUNT) — Ghislaine Maxwell suffered a black eye while behind bar, or so a newly released jail photo shows.

The photo emerged after Maxwell’s attorney filed a letter and the photo with the court.


According to TMZ:

Maxwell’s attorney, Bobbi Sternheim, filed docs attaching a picture showing what Jeffrey Epstein’s associate is looking like these days while locked up at NYC’s Metropolitan Detention Center.

It’s clear she’s suffered a bruise under her eye, but how she got it is a mystery. Her lawyer’s filing included a letter to the judge stating Maxwell only noticed the bruise after catching her reflection on a nail clipper. She doesn’t have a mirror.

Sternheim says Maxwell — who’s accused of trafficking underage girls to have sex with Epstein — doesn’t know how she got the bruise. It appears prison officials aren’t buying that, because Sternheim claims officials threatened to put Maxwell in a Special Housing Unit unless she spilled the beans on how she got the bruise.
