According to a report in The Sun, Frenchman Jean-Luc Brunel, a “friend” of Jeffrey Epstein’s, made the revelation as to his connection to the failed and disgraced media baron Robert Maxwell. A source quoted Brunel as saying, “he was having a conversation with some acquaintances in New York City around 2002. Jean-Luc was telling them how Ghislaine’s father Robert Maxwell was one of the reasons why Jeffrey Epstein had money.”
“He said Maxwell had been one of Epstein’s early investment clients. I assumed that Maxwell had invested in Epstein, who then used that money to make his own. Jean-Luc also started talking about a book featuring Robert Maxwell and wanted to get hold of a copy straight away.”

There has been a lot of speculation as to how exactly Jeffrey Epstein made all his money. The Netflix Documentary “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich,” explained that he was always a con artist who faked his success.
Robert Maxwell died in 1991 under mysterious circumstances. He reportedly fell off his yacht, Lady Ghislaine, named for his daughter, in the Canary Islands, where Maxwell had gone to get away from it all. Many speculated that his death was a suicide. The Hungarian born media magnate had been accused of embezzling more than $600 million from his company’s pension fund in an effort to keep his empire afloat.
Maxwell was known to have been a big supporter of Israel. It is rumored that he helped Israel acquire weapons from the government of Czechoslovakia during its war of independence. It has also been alleged that he may have been an active agent for Israel’s spy service the Mossad over the years.
