Convicted madam Ghislaine Maxwell has said she feels “so bad” for her “dear friend” Prince Andrew — and heartbroken at the end of her “special friendship” with former President Bill Clinton.

In a series of jailhouse interviews for an upcoming TV documentary, Maxwell decried the famous friends who have been hurt and “canceled” through their association with her and late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Among those was 42nd commander-in-chief Clinton, whose already sullied reputation was further tarnished when it emerged he flew on Epstein’s so-called “Lolita Express” private jet.

“It was a special friendship, which continued over the years,” Maxwell said of her close ties with Clinton.

“We had lots in common. I feel bad that he is another victim, only because of his association with Jeffrey,” she told documentary filmmaker Daphne Barak, according to excerpts in The Sun.

“I understand that he, like others, can no longer consider me as a friend,” she said.

The same applied to disgraced UK royal Andrew, 62, who was booted from royal duties and stripped of his title as His Royal Highness over his scandalous ties to her and Epstein.

“I accept that this friendship could not survive my conviction,” Maxwell told Barak of the younger brother of King Charles III.

Ghislaine also decried the pain her scandal as caused her “dear friend” Prince Andrew.

“He is paying such a price for the association with Jeffrey Epstein. I consider him a dear friend. I care about him, and I feel so bad for him,” she told the filmmaker for an upcoming CBS-Paramount Plus special.

In a series of face-to-face interviews starting when Maxwell was still in custody in Brooklyn, the convicted sex trafficker also backed her royal pal’s much-derided claim that the photo of him hugging his then-teenage sex accuser, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, was fake.

“At this time, I no longer believe that to be a true image, and I don’t believe that it is what it appears to be,” she told Barak according to other excerpts published by the Daily Mail.

“There are over 50 problems with the picture … So I don’t believe it’s a true picture,” Maxwell insisted, saying she would be “happy” to elaborate “as soon as my appeal is over.

Maxwell continued to maintain her innocence, blaming pre-trial publicity for unfairly making her appear as a “Wicked Witch.”

“I have read and seen and heard and had reported to me so many monstrous inaccuracies that I can’t even start to pick apart all of them,” she insisted, again saying she would be “super-happy to address” them “after the appeal.”

She singled out then-President Donald Trump as one of the few willing to keep an open mind about the accusations ahead of the trial in Manhattan federal court that ended with her sentenced to 20 years in prison.

“We knew each other and mingled in the same circles, in New York, Palm Beach. I was very grateful when he wished me well,” she said of Trump’s comments after she was arrested.

“He got bad media for it, but he dared, while others didn’t. I was honored he remembered me. Well, he is known to say what he thinks. It gave me a big boost,” she said.

Maxwell decried the “very heavy price that has been paid by the cancel culture” attacks on “many people” around her — insisting she was also suffering from mere guilt by association with Epstein.

“I said in my court statement that meeting Epstein was the greatest mistake of my life,” Maxwell said.

“And obviously, if I could go back today, I would avoid meeting him, and I would make different choices.”

The socialite daughter of disgraced media baron Robert Maxwell was interviewed twice for the upcoming doc — over the summer in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, and then a few weeks ago in her current home in Tallahassee’s Federal Correctional Institute.

During her chats, she continued whining about conditions — while claiming that a fellow jailbird had plotted to “murder” her.
