She's The Daughter Of A Disgraced Publishing Tycoon
Ghislaine is the daughter of the late Robert Maxwell, a British publishing magnate who had been the owner of the Daily Mirror. As an heiress, she'd been in the spotlight most of her life, but became a household name in 1991 after her father fell over the side of his yacht, which he named after her. His death revealed financial woes and a subsequent scandal; he may have unlawfully dipped into his employees' pension fund to keep his tabloid afloat. Though it was believed he had taken his own life, an inquest confirmed that Maxwell died of a heart attack and drowning.
