Oxford born former secretary of Ghislaine Maxwell sues ‘Miami Herald’ journalist Julie K. Brown for defamation; actress Emmy Tayler, daughter of a retired Oxford professor, perhaps should have been in ‘Inspector Morse’ instead of getting involved with the mucky madam.
Whilst the latter conjures images of Detective Chief Inspector Endeavour Morse’s involvement with classical music and calamitous murders, the county town of Oxfordshire – which dates back to the Saxon period and has been the principal site for the production of Mini cars since 2000 – this 17 square mile city represented by Labour’s Anneliese Dodds MP’s connections with Ghislaine Maxwell were further revealed this week.
Aside from the now mucky madam growing up at Headington Hill Hall to the east of Oxford – sneeringly dubbed “Britain’s best council house” by her very own pension pot plundering father – croaked paedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s one-time lover and co-collaborator in sex trafficking not only went to Oxford High School with Dame Cressida Dick DBE, QPM there but also attended the very same college at the university there as the now former Commissioner of the Police of the Metropolis.
Though perhaps an entirely innocent connection, one is left asking why the Metropolitan Police subsequently never proceeded to proceed with their investigation into Maxwell allegedly running a brothel out of her Stanhope Gardens East, South Kensington, London in 1994. Curious that.
Now, on Tuesday, another of Maxwell’s Oxford connections, her former secretary, Emmy Tayler, announced via lawyers AXS Law Group, PLLC that she is to sue the Miami Herald journalist Julie K. Brown and the publisher of her 2021 book Perversion of Justice: The Jeffrey Epstein Story, HarperCollins Publishers LLC for “publishing false and defamatory statements.”
Seeking a sum of in excess of £62,700 ($75,000, €73,600 or درهم275,400), Ms Tayler – who describes herself on IMBD as Oxford born and the daughter of a “recently retired professor” from there – claims Brown to have caused her “to suffer shame, humiliation, mental anguish and hurt feelings.” She adds that the journalist’s statements have “severely impacted and affected [her] mental health” in a 7-page document filed at the United States District Court Southern District of Florida on Tuesday 19th July 2022.
Going further, in the filing and denying Brown’s accusations that she aided in Epstein’s abuse, Tayler states that she was employed in London and then New York by Ghislaine Maxwell between 1997 and 2001. She specifically states that she did not work for Maxwell at the time of an incident Brown alleged her to be involved with Jane Doe 1 in Palm Beach, Florida in 2005 and demands the book be recalled.
Aside from having grown up in the same city as Ghislaine Maxwell, it is not known how the two actually met. Ms Tayler, who supposedly now lives in London according to her undated IMBD biography but potentially has lived somewhere else entirely since August 2020 if the New York Post is to be believed, “studied at Millfield School, where she was a Music Scholar. She pursued her passion for the violin, piano, singing, horseback riding, drama and karate. She attended The University of Westminster where she achieved a B/A Honors and a Degree in Commercial Music that was followed by the Central School of Speech and Drama, London. Shortly thereafter Emmy immigrated to New York, then to Los Angeles.”
