Maxwell commissioned Christopher Mason to write a song about paedophile Epstein for his birthday while the pair were living in New York.
Mr Mason, a British-born New York Times contributor living in Manhattan who was known for his musical “roasts”, revealed he was approached by the socialite.
He said normally he speaks to as many people as possible to get a full picture of the subject of the roast, reports The Sunday Times.
But on this occasion, he was only allowed to speak to Maxwell who gave him some very unusual instructions.
He claims one line he had to include was how Epstein had been the subject of schoolgirl crushes while working as a teacher at Dalton, a private school.
And another line should mention Epstein’s “24-hour erections”, Mason claims Maxwell told him.
Mr Mason said: “Normally I speak to as many people who know the person as possible. But this time I was only allowed to speak to Ghislaine.”
There is no suggestion Mr Mason acted improperly.
Epstein and Maxwell’s relationship remains mysterious, with the two linking up not long after she moved to New York in 1991.
She left the UK following the death of her dad newspaper magnate Robert Maxwell, who it later emerged was scamming hundreds of millions from his own firms.
Her friendship with the paedophile financier is alleged to have some point transformed into sordid sex trafficking, with victims claiming she was the “pimp” or “madam” in the operation.
Sources describes how Maxwell lived the life of luxury in New York, having a massive townhouse in Manhattan and attending every social function she could to boost her status.
It is claimed her finances remained a mystery even then, with prosecutors now drilling down into her “opaque” wealth as she was arrested and charged with sex crimes earlier this month.
One pal claims that Epstein and Maxwell were not linked romantically as has been often reported, but instead their relationship was a financial one.
They even speculated Epstein could have played a role in her disgraced dad’s pension scam, which may have been the source of their apparent wealth.
“I couldn’t work out at first how, the second Ghislaine landed in New York, she was all of a sudden — overnight really — very chummy with Jeffrey,” the source said.
“Then he started spending on a different level, suddenly buying these extraordinary townhouses.”
Epstein and Maxwell’s relationship was described as a “business arrangement from day one” and and Ghislaine acted like his “boss”.
The source said: “For a start he would never have been attracted to her. We know the kind of girls he liked.
“Also, why would she have been so interested in procuring girls for him? No girlfriend does that.”
They added: “She was his wingwoman from day one. She went to New York to see Jeffrey, she didn’t go and then meet Jeffrey.”
It is claimed Maxwell would host “creepy” parties at her townhouse, always appearing in a “ridiculous sexy-at-home outfit”.
Another pal describes her as being subject to “toxic control” by Epstein that “compromised any morals she might have had”.
It is suggested he offered her the lifestyle of luxury and connections that she craved and she allowed herself to get “sucked in” to a sleazy underworld.
“She had a choice to remain the Ghislaine we all knew and loved, or become the other, for money and power. She chose the latter,” a pal said.
Other friends recall Maxwell was always vague about where she got her money, being “adamant” she had earned it herself.
Epstein and Maxwell are known to have been regulars in high society – being pictured with numerous celebrities at parties and functions.
The financier wormed his way into rubbing shoulders with the world’s elite, hiding in plain sight while being a sordid sex fiend behind closed doors.
He killed himself last August while awaiting trial for sex crimes, and now his close pal Maxwell is in jail preparing for her day in front of a judge.
Maxwell is accused would procuring girls for him to abuse – with victims claiming they would be duped as she claimed she was recruiting models of masseurs.
The socialite has pleaded not guilty, and has always denied any wrongdoing over her friendship with Epstein.
Her lawyers have accused the victims of trying to turn her into a scapegoat since the death of Epstein.
Maxwell has been denied bail and faces one year in prison ahead of her trial next July as she faces six charges over her links to Epstein.
It has been speculated she may seek a plea deal to turn over other key members of Epstein’s inner circle who took part in the sex abuse.
