GHISLAINE Maxwell wanted to recruit Paris Hilton for Jeffrey Epstein upon seeing her for the first time, a former friend of hers has claimed.
Christopher Mason claimed allegedly stopped in her tracks and said "oh my God" when she saw Hilton, then 19 years old, at a party in the early 2000s.
Maxwell saw the young socialite at a party and was stunned by her good looks, prompting her to tell a friend Hilton would be "perfect for Jeffrey," according to the Daily Mail.
Mason recalled the moment in an upcoming docuseries Surviving Jeffrey Epstein, which is set to air Sunday on Lifetime.
"A friend of mine was at a party and Ghislaine said, ''Oh my god, who is that?'' and was looking at this pretty, younger teenage girl," he said.
"She said: ''Do you know her?''
"My friend said: ''Yeah, she’s called Paris Hilton'' and Ghislaine said: ''Ohhhh she’d be perfect for Jeffrey. Can you introduce us?''"
The British journalist, who has known Maxwell since the 1980s, didn't give a date for the encounter.
But it appears to have taken place around the year 2000, when Hilton was signed to Donald Trump's Modeling agency, T Management, according to the Daily Mail.
The documentary features a photo of Hilton and Trump chatting it up at the Anand Jon Fashion show in New York on September 18, 2000.
Maxwell, wearing sunglasses and a broad grin, can be seen standing to the left of Hilton.
In the documentary, Mason said people were "puzzled" by Maxwell and Epstein's relationship.
The pair met in the early 1990s when she moved to New York City following the death of her father and the two dated shortly after.
"The rumors were Ghislaine was scouring New York finding younger girls to go on dates with Jeffrey," Mason said.
"At the time it seemed a bit naughty."
It's unclear if Maxwell actually attempted to set up a date between Hilton and the pedophile financier.
Her lawyer didn't immediately respond to a request for comment from The Sun.
Maxwell allegedly bragged about performing a sex act on George Clooney, Virginia Giuffre claimed in a manuscript of an upcoming book she's writing.
Giuffre, a victim of Epstein, spent two years working for the billionaire as a traveling masseuse after being introduced to Epstein by Maxwell in the summer of 2000.
In the book, she recalls that during the time she spent with the pair, Maxwell "loved to brag about her rendezvous with various lovers".
"Once she came back giddy as a schoolgirl with an explosion of news, with all the build up and excitement in her voice you'd think she was the next crown princess," Giuffre writes.
"But she had given George Cooney a b******b in the bathroom at some random event.
"She never let that one down."
There is no suggestion of any involvement by Clooney in underage sex, Epstein's crimes, or other wrongdoing of any kind.
It is not clear when the alleged incident purportedly occurred.
Maxwell is awaiting trial on charges of enticement of minors, sex trafficking of children, and perjury over her alleged involvement in Epstein's crimes, but denies wrongdoing.
