THE FATHER of child trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell was a notorious media proprietor who ransacked his company pension pot of an estimated £800 million.

The owner of the Daily Mirror - Robert Maxwell rose from a life of poverty in Czechoslovakia to be one of the most well-known faces in Britain.

But the proprietor was outed as a fraudster when he died in suspicious circumstances after disappearing off his superyacht the Lady Ghislaine - named after his ninth and favourite child.

Who was Robert Maxwell?

Robert Maxwell was born Jan Ludvik Hyman Binyamin Hoch on June 10, 1923, in Slatinske Doly in Czechoslovakia - now Solotvyno in Ukraine.

He grew up in a difficult time, having to escape to France amid the invading Nazi Germany forces during World War Two, with many of his family being killed at famous death camp Auschwitz.

Maxwell ended up joining the Czechoslovak army, before moving to the Royal Staffordshire Regiment and seeing action from Normandy to Berlin.

Maxwell married Frenchwoman Elisabeth "Betty" Meynard in 1945.

The couple had nine children: Michael, Philip, Anne, Christine, Isabel, Karine, Ian, Kevin and Ghislaine.

However, Robert and Betty suffered two tragedies with their children, as Karine died aged three of leukemia.

Michael was severely injured in a car crash aged 15, after his driver fell asleep at the wheel, and died seven years later having never regained consciousness.

After the war, Maxwell became a publishing distributor before buying Butterworth-Springer in 1951 - later being renamed Pergamon Press.

In 1964, he was elected as a Labour MP for Buckingham, staying in the seat for six years.

At the end of the 1960s, Maxwell tried to buy News Of The World, only for his bid to be rejected based on his Czechoslovak heritage - while he also attempted to purchase The Sun.

But he did eventually add a tabloid paper to his business ventures, purchasing Mirror Group Newspapers in 1984.

The war veteran also tried his hand in football, firstly as chairman of Oxford United, before buying into Derby County - but failed in his bid to purchase Manchester United after refusing their asking price.

Maxwell's youngest daughter Ghislaine, who is the most well-known of his offspring, dated convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and on July 2, 2020, was found guilty on charges including transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.

The publishing tycoon died in unusual circumstances on November 5, 1991.

Maxwell had been on his yacht, Lady Ghislaine, and had his last contact with the crew at 4.25am before going missing later that morning.

It was speculated that he had been urinating naked off the side of the boat, with his body later recovered nude.

Maxwell, who came from a Jewish family, was buried in Jerusalem in a lavish ceremony with the Israeli Prime Minister among those attending.

However, his death saw his businesses crumble into instability amid failure to repay bank loans and led to the famous Mirror pension fraud probe.

The Lady Ghislaine was later sold to Saudi arms dealer and billionaire Adnan Khashoggi.

Who was Ghislaine Maxwell's mother?

Born on March 11, 1921, Elisabeth Maxwell was a Holocaust scholar from France, who founded the journal Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

She was married to publishing billionaire Robert Maxwell from 1945 until his death in 1991, when the family's financial practices, particularly his role in the Mirror Group pension controversy, came under examination.

Later in life, she was honored for her efforts as an advocate for interfaith dialogue.

Maxwell spent the majority of her later years in France with her sister Yvonne and she died on August 7, 2013, in Dordogne at the age of 92.

Fans Blast Mike Fleiss for Promise of Scandal Investigation

Getty Executive Producer Mike Fleiss attends The Hollywood Radio & Television Society Presents "The Unscripted Hitmakers" luncheon.

Things are getting quite dramatic within “Bachelor Nation” this week, after spoiler king Reality Steve revealed some tantalizing information on “The Bachelorette” frontrunner Nate Mitchell. Shortly after Reality Steve shared what he had uncovered about Mitchell, Fleiss took to Twitter and generated a lot of buzz with his posts.

Reality Steve exposed details from two different women who said they dated Mitchell, with some overlap in their relationship timelines. Not only did that raise eyebrows, but the gal he dated for more than a year did not know he had a daughter, nor did she know he had been married and his divorce wasn’t final until far into their relationship. Many fans thought Mitchell was a frontrunner to become “The Bachelor,” if he did not get a “Bachelorette” final rose, and that perception seems to have Fleiss scrambling.

Here’s what you need to know:

Fleiss Initially Asked Fans for “Bachelor” Lead Suggestions View this post on Instagram

A post shared by NATE (@nate_mitchell12)

Fleiss first dipped his toe into this fresh round of drama by asking via Twitter on August 9, “Ok, so who should we pick as your next #TheBachelor???” This was the same day Reality Steve addressed what he’d learned about Mitchell. There were plenty of responses, including Susie Evans joking, “Give Clayton another go at it!” As “The Bachelor” fans know, Evans and Clayton Echard reunited after drama during his season, and they are still together now. There were plenty of other suggestions, including several fans who suggested Mitchell. “Let’s pump the brakes on Nate for a minute while the Reality Steve news plays out,” responded one “Bachelor” fan. Another tweeted, “I was a Nate stan, but the allegations against him are strong… He’s a smooth talker, but a liar & cheater shouldn’t be rewarded with the title of ‘Bachelor.’”

That prompted additional tweets from Fleiss. He did not reference Mitchell by name, but it was clear that’s who he was referencing. “Don’t jump to conclusions about certain cast members based on mere allegations, as disturbing as they may be,” he noted. “I beg you to wait until all the facts come out before making any judgments.” After insisting an investigation into the situation was started, he soon claimed, “the man in question is nothing like the guy ‘these women have made him out to be.’” He also tweeted, “Since there is an innocent, young child in the situation, we must conduct a full and complete investigation!!!” In addition, Fleiss insisted, “we believe that casting decisions should never be exploitive. There are more important things than ratings!”

Almost immediately, multiple discussions developed within “The Bachelor” sub on Reddit. An overwhelming majority of those who shared their thoughts agreed Fleiss’ take on the Mitchell situation was problematic.

“MF vouching for you just makes you even worse so I’m completely out on Nate,” one person commented.

“Mike doesn’t care, and Nate is exactly the kind of bachelor they want. One who love bombs a ton of women but means none of it and the relationship is over by ATFR after he’s caused a ton of drama and crying,” another “Bachelor” fan detailed.

“Should he be crucified? No!! But he should be held accountable and should not be rewarded with the role of the ‘Bachelor,’” concurred someone else.

“BREAKING: notorious misogynist defends awful behavior from local man, more at 11,” a viewer quipped of Fleiss.

“He has to be their pick for the next ‘Bachelor’ for Fleiss to be this defensive,” suggested another fan of Mitchell.

A formal announcement regarding the next “Bachelor” lead will likely emerge in the next month or so, and fans will be eager to see if Mitchell gets the nod after all of this drama.
