GHISLAINE Maxwell was a guest at Andrew Cuomo's lavish wedding to Kerry Kennedy and attended a private family lunch to celebrate the big day, it has been claimed.
Author Christina Oxenberg has opened up about the run-in in her new book, Trash: Encounters With Ghislaine Maxwell, after Cuomo was also listed in Jeffrey Epstein's Black Book.
Writing in her release, Christina alleges it was the first time she'd met Ghislaine and she was only familiar with her name as the daughter of the high-profile publisher Robert Maxwell.
"The ceremony took place in a cathedral in Washington DC and was attended by scores of invited guests, the front door near-impenetrable because of the swarm of the media and a mob of Kennedy fans," Christina writes.
"Following the church nuptials, a trimmed-down group was invited to a reception held on the rolling green grounds surrounding the elegant home of Ethel Kennedy, aka Mrs. Robert F. Kennedy, at Hickory Hill, in McLean, Virginia.
"The even-more-private lunch at Ethel's home was attended only by family and some tag-along[s] with odd links to the bride or groom, such as myself.
"And it was when the guests were all milling amiably before lunch and standing around between Hickory Hill House and the tent that I first met her.
"I was standing with my then-husband, Damian Elwes, a British painter when Ghislaine sauntered over. She and Damian burst with enthusiastic greetings.
"I would later learn they were friends from their 'Oxford days', which I put in quotes because Damian never attended Oxford."
It has also been rumored that Ghislaine hooked up with John F. Kennedy Jr, according to OK! Magazine.
The Sun has reached out to Cuomo's lawyer and Kerry Kennedy for comment but did not hear back.
Christina explained their meeting was brief and they only engaged in small chit-chat and believes it was likely Kerry who invited Ghislaine to the wedding, rather than Cuomo.
She exclusively told The Sun: "He was simply the governor's son in those days and little was known about him."
Christina claimed he was "extremely unfriendly" at Kennedy events she attended, but she was shocked by the sexual harassment allegations against him by a number of women.
The ousted New York governor was charged last Thursday with groping a former aide in Albany’s Executive Mansion.
The complaint charges Cuomo with forcible touching, which carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail.
If convicted of the misdemeanor, the 63-year-old civilian would not have to register as a sex offender.
"I never saw AC behave inappropriately," Christina said. "If anything he was extremely unfriendly at Kennedy family events where I saw him not engaging with anyone.
"[I'm] always supportive of any victims of a case involving sexual misconduct. I don't know the specifics but I hope justice prevails."
Cuomo was married to Kennedy until 2005 and his biographer, Michael Shnayerson, later claimed she "slept in a locked bathroom when he was home during the divorce."
The author recounted the allegations in a 2,500 article for Vanity Fair as he claimed the high profile Democrat has a history of "physical abuse".
Cuomo's spokesman dismissed the allegations as "false" and "tabloid fodder" in a response published as part of the lengthy piece.
Meanwhile, Ghislaine's brother Ian Maxwell compared the public perception of his sister to the heat Cuomo has faced following several claims of sexual harassment and bullying in an interview with the Washington Post.
"Cuomo is entitled to have an investigation of his actions, just as Ghislaine is entitled to have one of hers," Ian said earlier this year.
Ghislaine, the former lover of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, will face six charges at her at trial later this year, including sex trafficking conspiracy and the sex trafficking of a minor.
She remains behind bars in New York after being arrested in July 2020.
Ghislaine appeared in court in New York on Monday shackled at her hands and feet, wearing a baggy blue jumpsuit with a white shirt underneath and large-framed glasses, according to reports.
Trash: Encounters with Ghislaine Maxwell by Christina Oxenberg is an ebook exclusive, available on Amazon Kindle.
