Ghislaine Maxwell and her husband offer $28.5 million bail package

Ghislaine Maxwell security guard whined in a new court filing that the disgraced socialite’s plight at the hands of the press is similar to the harassment Princess Diana endured before her fatal car crash.

The security consultant, whose name is redacted, said that Maxwell, 58, has been the target of aggressive reporters and photographers desperate for a scoop.

“This kind of behavior is not only harassing, but can be life threatening,” he wrote in a letter submitted as part of Maxwell’s proposed $28.5 million bail package.

“A good example is the case of Princess Diana, who unfortunately lost her life due to press intrusion into her personal space.”

Diana, Princess of Wales and the mother of Prince Harry and Prince William, died in Paris in 1997 after her driver crashed into a pillar while fleeing the paparazzi.

The security expert said he had served 25 years in the British military before he was contracted to “guard the UK’s third richest person” who he didn’t identify by name.

At the time of Maxwell’s July 2nd arrest, an associate of the security firm had been assigned to protect her from overzealous media, according to the Manhattan federal filing.

His associate was on duty at her sprawling New Hampshire hideout when he noticed a helicopter flying overhead at 6:30 a.m. and assumed the press had discovered the property.

Two hours later, vehicles sped up the driveway and the guard instructed Maxwell to move to an interior room for her safety, the letter says.

It turned out the intruders weren’t the press but federal agents. Prosecutors have alleged that she tried to flee to another room, closing the door behind her, when the FBI arrived — but her security expert countered that she was just following protocol.

Maxwell has asked to be released to home confinement with electronic GPS monitoring while she awaits trial on a six-count indictment charging her with recruiting girls and women to be sexually abused by her and late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

The security firm would be contracted to supply around-the-clock protection upon her release, and the company would even pony up a $1 million bond to support her application, the letter says.
