Ghislaine Maxwell husband has ‘moved on’ with a yoga instructor. Ghislaine Maxwell was told everything in a tense phone call while behind bars.
Scott Borgerson, 46, secretly married Maxwell, 60, in 2016 after splitting with his first wife and mother of his two children.
Scott Borgerson and Ghislaine Maxwell secretly married in 2016 after Borgerson split with his first wife and mother of his two children .
He had offered to put up millions of joint assets as part of her bail plea and had initially vowed to stand by Maxwell. In total, he offered to put up millions of pounds of joint assets as part of her $28.5 million bail plea.
However, a close friend of Maxwell’s said: ‘The marriage was over before the trial started’.
There was a dramatic phone call between them, while she was in jail in solitary confinement. It became confrontational.
‘Scott told her he had moved on and was seeing someone else, said the friend according to DailyMail
‘The marriage was past tense there and then. It’s over. The marriage was over before the trial started.’
Another source told the MoS: ‘He did not attend a single day of her trial. Read into that what you will.’
Borgerson, a tech CEO, had been living with Maxwell at a beachfront home in Manchester-on-Sea, Massachusetts, but when Jeffrey Epstein was arrested in 2019 and charged with child sex crimes, Maxwell fled the home ‘to protect her stepchildren’.
The source said: ‘Once their home had been discovered she left, mostly to protect the children. They were being teased at school. Anyone associated with Ghislaine finds they become toxic.
‘When Epstein died the Maxwell family decided to protect their sister from the media and people who might be out to hurt her. She had a lot of death threats. The Maxwells insisted on sending her away but Scott insisted he could protect her if someone tried to invade their property.
‘Scott would fly to see her when she was traveling around.
Maxwell hired a former British special forces soldier, Matt Hellier to guard her and moved from ‘safe house’ to ‘safe house’ before eventually buying a home ‘Tukedaway’ in tiny Bradford, New Hampshire for $1 million cash at the start of 2020.
Borgerson and his children would visit ‘most weekends.’
In July 2020, dozens of FBI officers broke down the gates to the property and arrested Maxwell on the child sex charges and sex trafficking charges she was convicted of this week.
She faces a maximum of 65 years in jail.
A source said: ‘The relationship with Scott was a real love story. But after Epstein killed himself (in August 2019) and the focus turned to Ghislaine, their relationship became strained.
‘At first Scott stood by her and wrote letters to the court and offered joint assets to try and get Ghislaine our on bail.
‘But she has been behind bars for 549 days now. It put a terrible strain on the marriage.’
Borgerson has been photographed near his home with new girlfriend Kris McGinn, 49, a writer and yoga teacher.
Neither Borgerson nor McGinn have commented on their relationship. When approached by reporters last month, Borgerson snapped: ‘Go away!’
Maxwell and Borgerson first met in 2013 at the Arctic Circle Assembly in Reykjavik.
Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty of five out of the six charges brought against her. She was accused of grooming young girls to be sexually abused by then boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein.
The date for her sentencing has yet to be announced.
