Musk, 51, has denied knowing Maxwell several times and has argued on Twitter in the past that she ‘photo-bombed’ the billionaire and would-be Twitter CEO.
A new story sourced to a Vanity Fair staffer, however, said that the two had a conversation at the magazine’s Oscar party where the picture was snapped.
She then, supposedly, encouraged Musk to ‘destroy the internet.’ Musk allegedly demurred.
Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison in June for assisting Jeffrey Epstein in his elaborate sex trafficking scheme. She is currently serving her time at Florida’s low-security FCI Tallahassee prison.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk apparently took questions from convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell at a Vanity Fair party where a now-infamous photo of the two together emerged

To wrap up their chat nearly 10 years ago, Maxwell allegedly asked Musk why aliens had yet to make contact with humans.
The tech mogul’s response, the staffer said, was that ‘all civilizations eventually end’ – including potential alien ones – and even suggested humans live in a simulation.
Musk has addressed the photo a few times after being accused of befriending Maxwell, known as billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s right-hand woman, with the photo as evidence.
He added context and an alibi in a second tweet, saying ‘She photobombed me at a Vanity Fair Oscar party. Was there with Tallulah Riley. Don’t know Ghislaine at all. Why do you think it should be a bigger story?’
Riley, Musk’s second wife and an actress who starred on HBO’s Westwood, also denied knowing Maxwell in a statement on Twitter.
In July 2020, Musk tweeted in response to someone asking about the photo, ‘Don’t know Ghislaine at all. She photobombed me once at a Vanity Fair party several years ago. Real question is why VF invited her in the first place.’

The Vanity Fair party was thrown by then-editor-in-chief, Graydon Carter — who was also in charge of the magazine in 2002 when a profile of Epstein that included sexual assault allegations were suddenly cut.
The article by journalist Vicky Ward included allegations against Maxwell and Epstein by two sisters, Annie and Marie Farmer.
‘Separately, each told me that Epstein had sexually abused both of them, Annie when she was just 15. I believed them and I wanted to publish their story, but to my dismay, the sisters’ allegations did not make into my Vanity Fair article,’ Ward wrote for The Daily Mail in 2021.
According to Ward, Carter told her that the publication’s lawyers didn’t believe her reporting was ‘sufficient,’ even though she maintains she had ‘three sources supporting their allegations.’
Epstein had appeared in the magazine’s offices himself prior to the edit.
‘It is, to say the least, highly unusual for the subject of an investigative magazine article to appear in the offices of the outlet profiling them — and perhaps especially in the editor’s office,’ Ward wrote.
‘Did the impeccably well-connected Epstein put pressure on the magazine to drop any hint of the sexual abuse I had uncovered about him? I don’t know.’
In the autumn of 2002, I was assigned to write an article for Vanity Fair magazine about an intriguing and very rich man called Jeffrey Epstein. I soon discovered that Ghislaine had had a complicated relationship with Epstein for over a decade
Maxwell, 60, was convicted after the FBI brought charges against her of enticement of minors and sex trafficking of underage girls, related to her association with the late pedophile Epstein. She was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment.
To add to her woes, lawyers the small Colorado-based firm HMF – who say they represented Maxwell in lawsuits brought by victims of her former boyfriend Epstein dating back to 2017 – are now suing her family for $850,000.
Four women gave evidence against Maxwell during her weeks-long trial: a victim known as ‘Jane’, Annie Farmer, Kate and another woman called Carolyn.
Over three weeks, the jury heard how Maxwell ‘served up’ underage girls for Epstein and relished her role as the ‘Lady of the House’ at his mansion in Palm Beach, Florida.
Between 1994 and 2004, lawyers argued Maxwell was Epstein’s ‘right hand’ and paid $200 for sexualized massages or even took part in the abuse.
The victims, some as young as 14, were given a similar amount of money if they brought friends to Epstein, the jury was told.
During the trial, prosecutors called 24 witnesses to give jurors a picture of life inside Epstein’s homes – a subject of public fascination and speculation ever since his 2006 arrest in Florida in a child sex case.

Maxwell had grown up a British socialite, the daughter of publishing baron Robert Maxwell. Her lawyers have claimed that his sudden death in 1991 made her susceptible to becoming exploited by Epstein
A housekeeper testified he was expected to be ‘blind, deaf and dumb’ about the private lives of Epstein, a financier who cultivated friendships with influential politicians and business tycoons.
Pilots took the witness stand and dropped the names of luminaries – Britain’s Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump – who flew on Epstein’s private jets.
Jurors also saw physical evidence like a folding massage table once used by Epstein and a ‘black book’ that listed contact information for some of the victims under the heading ‘massages’.
There were bank records showing he had transferred $30.7 million to Maxwell.
Additionally, prosecutors produced a 58-page household manual covering every single aspect of running the house in Palm Beach that they indicated Maxwell had written. There were dozens of checklists for each area of the house, instructions on when to replace the toothpaste and what brands of creams to buy.
