PAEDOPHILE Jeffrey Epstein and his ex-lover Ghislaine Maxwell recorded videos of powerful people having sex with under-age girls, according to a former friend of the pair.
And the reformed jewel thief, who uses the pseudonym William Steel, claims the couple made him watch some to prove how they “owned” people.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, the ex-criminal turned writer tells how he was shown footage involving two high-profile US politicians having sex with minors and two high society figures having a threesome with an under-age girl.
Steel — who is not being paid for this interview — also branded Maxwell, 58, who was arrested last week in connection with trafficking young girls, a wild “nymphomaniac” who would try “everything and anything in bed”.
He says: “I was forced to watch their videos because they were trying to impress me.
“They wanted to convince me of their power and who they held in their grip.
“They boasted about ‘owning’ powerful people.
“Ghislaine was more into showing me those than Jeff.
“When you’re in a situation like that, you have to pretend to be non- judgmental. But it was shocking.
