GHISLAINE Maxwell has revealed she “plays peekaboo” with prison guards and has an imaginary friend to keep her company as she awaits her sex trafficking trial.
The 59-year-old has claimed she has “impressed” guards with her savvy haircutting skills despite only being equipped with nail clippers and a tiny mirror.

As well as supposedly sharing her books and food recommendations with the officers, she says she also passes the time by playing hide and seek with staff.
The alleged madam told the Mail On Sunday: “I play peek-a-boo, hiding behind pillars and the guards join in. There are always smiles all round.
“Then I have a ‘monster move’ where I raise my hands and growl and they do it back. We laugh.”
But she previously said her time in prison was no laughing matter and moaned she is being treated like “Hannibal Lecter.”
Maxwell, who is accused of helping to find teenage girls for billionaire financier Epstein to abuse, complained she is “weak” and “frail” due to the subpar dining options provided by the US government.
“I’ve been given food so overnuked it looked liked Chernobyl after the nuclear fallout,” she said.

“The salads are wilted with mould, an apple had maggots, they gave me a black soggy banana. There was bread so wet, water came out when you squeezed it.”
The heiress explained she has created an imaginary cellmate after being stuck in solitary confinement since she was imprisoned – and has a light shone into her cell every 15 minutes to ensure she has not self-harmed.
Maxwell continued: “Strange things happen. The toilet flushes, the shower turns on when no one is nearby.
“When it happens, it alarms the guards so I created a ‘cellmate’ called A-17 so when something strange happens I blame it on A-17.”
Maxwell said despite the observation issues she managed to find a pal in the loo a “friendly rat” who she says would hop out of an open sewer drain.

Among her other grumbles, she said she was initially given “enormous granny pants” to wear.
The 59-year-old then insisted she was innocent before the beginning of her trial’s jury selection on Monday morning, with her six-week trial set to start on November 29.
Maxwell denies six charges including enticement of minors and sex trafficking of children, which carry a maximum punishment of 80 years in prison.
From 1994 to 2004, she allegedly “facilitated and contributed” to the abuse of children by her ex-boyfriend Epstein.
But she claims she is being used as a scapegoat for him after he committed suicide awaiting trial for sex crimes in August 2019.
And she fears she is being “painted in a negative light” which will “poison” her jury pool and de-rail the outcome of her trial.
Maxwell faces a maximum of 80 years in prison if found guilty of abusing and procuring young girls for Epstein.
“GHISLAINE WAS THE MASTERMIND”
Her relationship with Prince Andrew will also be put back on display for the courtroom to hear evidence on.
Virginia Roberts is expected to face Maxwell across the courtroom, and claims that she was “sex trafficked” to the Prince three times when she was 17 and therefore underage.
Prince Andrew vehemently denies all claims and insists he cannot remember ever meeting Ms Roberts.
Ms Roberts has described Maxwell as a monster adding: “She’s vicious, pure evil.
“Epstein was a sick paedophile but Ghislaine was the mastermind.”
