‘Prison Karen’ Ghislaine Maxwell tattled on a transgender cellmate for having raucous sex sessions in the bunk above her, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
Tensions flared when Maxwell, 61, was placed in the same four-bed ‘cube’ as a heavily-tattooed inmate nicknamed Batman – who began transitioning from female to male while locked up for a firearm offense.
The disgraced socialite first took exception to her new ‘bunkie’ hanging boxers and socks over the metal rungs of the bed to dry, according to sources inside FCI Tallahassee, where Maxwell is serving 20 years for grooming Jeffrey Epstein’s victims.
Their bickering turned even more bitter when Batman started sneaking a prison girlfriend back to the poky 5ft by 8ft living space after the low-security Florida lockup’s nightly 9pm headcount.
Ghislaine Maxwell (pictured in her first televised jailhouse interview in January) continues to ruffle feathers behind bars, with her latest battle against a bunkmate who began sneaking a prison lover into their cell, DailyMail.com has learned
Insiders told DailyMail.com that Maxwell tattled on a transgender cellmate known as ‘Batman’ – a career criminal convicted of firearm offenses – for having loud sex sessions late at night
According to sources at the low-security facility, the British socialite, 61, has managed to rub fellow inmates and even prison staff the wrong way since her arrival, due to her ‘entitled attitude’
‘The cubes don’t have doors like regular cells so Batman’s girl would just creep in and climb up to the top bunk,’ an insider told DailyMail.com.
‘Max would hear every grunt and moan as she was trying to sleep just a few feet below. The beds aren’t bolted down and they can rock from side to side and make a lot of noise.
‘Max and Batman weren’t getting along because of the underwear thing so this was the final straw. Inmates aren’t allowed to have sex so she went and reported Batman to the unit’s case manager.’
Within days of Maxwell’s complaint, Batman – a career criminal convicted of being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm – was moved to a different cube.
Epstein’s madam didn’t fare much better with her replacement, however, as the newcomer quickly kicked off about avid jogger Maxwell failing to take showers and stinking out their cramped living quarters with her sweaty sneakers.
‘Maxwell would come straight off the running track and not wash. It’s something you often see with sex offenders, they are worried about being attacked in the shower,’ added our source.
‘Eventually they had a huge argument – this time over a clothes hanger – and it got so heated that the new bunkie threatened to beat Max with a padlock.
‘Of course, Max complained, and this girl was also removed. Max seems to think she will eventually get a cube all to herself if she keeps stirring up trouble.’
DailyMail.com revealed last month that Maxwell earned her ‘prison Karen’ moniker because of the 400-plus petty complaints she has lodged while behind bars.
Maxwell has filed more than 400 complaints over the unfavorable conditions in prison since starting her 20-year sentence at FCI Tallahassee last July
Maxwell is locked up at FCI Tallahassee, which could be her home until July 2037
Early reports revealed how the disgraced British socialite struggled to cope with her new life behind bars, refusing to eat and complaining bitterly to prison authorities that her clothes didn’t fit
The sex trafficker has slated the lackluster vegan menu options, whined about ‘unfair treatment’, and demanded that jail authorities give her immediate access to black hair dye.
She even bagged plush hypoallergenic bedding after grumbling to staff that the standard-issue prison pillows were triggering her allergies.
Maxwell’s moaning dates back to July 2020 when she was locked up at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York while awaiting federal trial for grooming minors.
Her lawyers accused prison authorities of breaching her rights by shining a torch in her cell every 15 minutes, subjecting her to invasive searches and filming her at all hours.
The daughter of disgraced UK newspaper magnate Robert Maxwell was sentenced to two decades behind bars in June last year and the judge in her case recommended she serve her time at FCI Danbury, the Connecticut prison that inspired Orange is the New Black.
But the Bureau of Prisons, which has the final say, instead sent her 1,000 miles south to sun-drenched FCI Tallahassee.
But the prickly prisoner continued to rack up the complaints, taking advantage of her job in the jail law library to file BP-9 ‘administrative remedy’ forms at a rate of more than two a week.
Oxford-educated Maxwell has been at the center of countless controversies and bust-ups while locked up and even managed to use the prison’s video visit system to give a headline-grabbing TV interview.
In January she told UK broadcaster Jeremy Kyle, without presenting any evidence, that the now-notorious photograph of Prince Andrew with Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre was a fake.
The disgraced British socialite is still having trouble adapting to her grim life behind bars after being surrounded by luxury and wealth for most of her life
Maxwell was convicted on December 29, 2021 on five of the six counts she faced for helping the late financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse underage girls
DailyMail.com revealed how the chat earned Maxwell 48 hours in the Special Housing Unit – a ‘prison within a prison’ comprising tiny, grim cells where inmates are caged for 23 hours at a time and fed through slits in the door.
In March it was the turn of two Cuban inmates who were both thrown into solitary confinement for 47 days after Maxwell reported them to authorities for trying to extort her.
The two bullies found out their strict vegan neighbor had an ‘arrangement’ with a kitchen worker who would slip her extra fruit, vegetables, and tofu and thought they could use the info against her.
They penned Maxwell a threatening letter demanding $360 worth of items from her commissary allowance but the Briton turned it straight over to prison authorities – breaching the strict mantra against snitching.
Maxwell was living in fear of a beatdown when the pair got out but one of the Cubans has since been transferred to a half-way house in Laredo, Texas and the other was moved to a different housing unit.
Maxwell – federal prisoner 02879-509 – has a release date inset forJuly 2037 when she will be 75. She could gt out earlier if she can successfully appeal her convictions for helping ex-lover Epstein, who hanged himself behind bars in 2019 instead of facing trial.
Federal prosecutors argued this week in a fresh court filing that Maxwell’s conviction for grooming girls as young as 14 should stand and denied claims she was being used as a proxy to satisfy public outrage over Epstein’s crimes.
MAXWELL’S MOANS REVEALED IN EXCLUSIVE PRISON RECORDS:
Epstein madam Ghislaine Maxwell has twice asked for compassionate release from prison, according to internal records obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com.
The mysterious requests – filed on January 9 and February 23 – are among scores of ‘administrative remedy’ filings lodged by the disgraced socialite during her year behind bars at Florida’s FCI Tallahassee.
Maxwell, 61, has also accused jail workers of misconduct or harassment on at least a dozen occasions – with one October 31, 2022 entry listed in Federal Bureau of Prisons paperwork as ‘sexual abuse / abuse by staff’.
The British-born felon has complained numerous times about ‘improper or inadequate’ dental and medical treatment for eye problems and a rash.
A December 2022 entry notes that Maxwell says she has not been able to see an ob-gyn and needs an ultrasound examination.
Further grievances reference alleged discrimination under the 14th Amendment and freedom of religion laws. Maxwell also complains about a lack of hot water, the prison food and her mail being tampered with.
In all, Maxwell’s gripes span nine pages of records which were obtained by DailyMail.com under the Freedom of Information Act.
Sources tell us that they are likely only the tip of the iceberg as anything deemed private or especially egregious would be exempt from disclosure.
Maxwell, inmate 02879-509, works six hours a day in the prison library to pass the time and likes to go jogging around the prison’s 400-meter running track
Maxwell not only files numerous complaints for herself, she also uses her job in the prison’s law library to advise other inmates how to do the same, adds our insider.
Her suspected end goal is to cause such a stink that she’s transferred to a different facility, preferably FCI Danbury, the Connecticut lockup that inspired Orange is the New Black.
‘Tallahassee is big, it’s old, it’s ghetto. Max has too many enemies and she wants out,’ explained our source.
‘Danbury is smaller and mainly for white-collar criminals and she thinks she can get there by causing as much hassle as possible.’
