The parents of Ghislaine Maxwell’s accused “lieutenant” Sarah Kellen, worry their daughter could be arrested next in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring, according to a report.
“After Maxwell I think Sarah’s next,” Kellen’s mom, Mary Kellen, said as she choked up at the prospect of her daughter’s possible arrest, according to a report by the Daily Mail.
But the 74-year-old mom said her daughter was just another victim swept up in Epstein’s cycle of sexual abuse, having begun working for him as a teenager.
“What happened to all those girls is horrendous but I do feel that Sarah was also a victim,” the mother told the outlet. “I’m not a psychologist or a psychiatrist but I can see she was maneuvered or brainwashed.”
“I just hope someone doesn’t go and kill her. There are a lot of prominent, powerful people out there that don’t want anything said,” Mary said.
The 58-year-old British socialite and accused Epstein madame, was arrested July 2 on charges of recruiting and grooming underage girls to be sexually abused be her and Epstein — her one-time lover.
In lawsuits which named Kellen as a defendant, Kellen is described as Maxwell’s second in command, Maxwell’s assistant and even “lieutenant.”
Kellen, 41, worked for Epstein for around ten years as a personal assistant and has been accused by victims of complicity in their sexual abuse. In one case, Kellen was accused of taking nude photographs of victim Juliette Bryant for Epstein.
Kellen’s parents say they lost touch with their daughter when she was cast out of their Jehovah’s Witness church for nude modelling. It was around that time that Kellen began working for the 66-year-old dead pedophile when she was 18 or 19, the outlet reported.
“I think she was manipulated by Epstein due to her age and the circumstances. In my opinion she’s a victim just as much as some of the others,” Kellen’s dad, Thomas Kellen told the outlet.
“She was told what to do and what to say. I feel she is still probably afraid to say anything – even now that he’s gone,” Thomas continued.
Having fallen out with her church, parents and having a failed marriage after wedding at 17, Kellen was pulled into Epstein’s web, the parents told the outlet.
“She just told us she was going to be a personal assistant to this investor,” Mary said. “She would go get whatever was needed. She traveled with them. I know she was flying a lot because her husband served her divorce papers at the airport.”
“I did think that some elements of it were odd but then we’re just middle income, what do we know about what rich people do?” Mary explained to the Daily Mail.
