Ghislaine Maxwell’s Private Wedding
During her trial on July 14, 2020, it was discovered that Ghislaine Maxwell was secretly married to Scott Borgerson, whose name was circulating at the time. Prosecutors said that the socialite concealed her marital status and fortune from the court.
Assistant US Attorney Alison Moe had told the court, “The defendant makes no reference whatsoever of the financial conditions or assets of her spouse, whose identity she refused to divulge to Pretrial Services.”
Maxwell then told the court that she attempted to file for divorce from her spouse before to her arrest so that he wouldn’t be affiliated with her. Maxwell and Scott Borgerson were reportedly secretly married in 2016. Borgerson, though, denied their relationship, claiming they were only old pals.

Rebecca was allegedly upset after witnessing a video of her husband kissing and embracing his new lover and learning that he had left her for Maxwell.
A source told the media in 2019 that Scott left his wife for Ghislaine around five years ago. What has occurred to Rebecca is reprehensible. Rebecca and Scott appeared to be a wonderful pair. However, as time passed, he became increasingly distracted and was frequently on his cell phone, apparently for business conversations. He traveled frequently for employment.”
During the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein. Maxwell was sheltering at the Massachusetts House of Borgerson. However, the CEO disputed the charges, claiming he had no clue where she resided.

The Telegraph said that Borgerson offered to pay a $22.5 million bond to secure Maxwell’s release before to her trial. However, his name was never listed in the official court papers, and he was absent from the hearings.
Maxwell allegedly moved all of her assets into her husband’s name after their marriage in order to safeguard her finances before her trial. Multiple sources suggest that Borgerson is currently in a relationship with another individual.
