Manchester-born 'wellness entrepreneur' revealed as Jeffrey Epstein's alleged ex-girlfriend
A Manchester-born publisher has been identified as the alleged former girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein named in legal papers relating to Ghislaine Maxwell that were unsealed by a Manhattan court last week. A woman named as "Shelley" was allegedly named by Ms Maxwell as Epstein's girlfriend between 1999 and 2002, according to an email contained in papers released by US District Judge Loretta Preska. It has now been claimed that the woman is Shelley Ann Lewis, 43, a "wellness entrepreneur", who runs a company called The Equanimity Expert. There is no suggestion that Ms Lewis was aware of any criminal behaviour by Epstein during the time of their alleged relationship. It coincided with the time when Virginia Giuffre alleges she was coerced into having sex with the Duke of York - an allegation that Prince Andrew has repeatedly and vehemently denied. Ms Lewis could, lawyers believe, be approached by prosecutors and attorneys in the United States acting for Epstein's victims to ask what she knew about the alleged behaviour of Ms Maxwell and Epstein. The tranche of papers was compiled during a defamation case brought against Ms Maxwell by Ms Giuffre. They were released despite fierce opposition from Ms Maxwell's legal team. In a January 2015 email to Epstein, Ms Maxwell wrote: "I would appreciate it if Shelley would come out and say she was your g'friend - I think she was from end [19]99 to 2002." Epstein replied: "OK with me." Ms Lewis' name appear
