- Ghislaine Maxwell’s husband phoned her to tell her about another woman, sources told Mail on Sunday.
- Maxwell and Scott Borgerson got secretly married in 2016, and he tried to secure her release on bail.
- A person who was a friend of Maxwell told the Mail that their marriage was over before the trial.
Ghislaine Maxwell’s marriage with her husband ended when she was in jail after he told her he had moved on with another woman, sources told the Mail on Sunday.
In 2016, Maxwell secretly married Silicon Valley entrepreneur Scott Borgerson, who came into the limelight in 2020 after Maxwell was accused of helping convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein abuse girls.
A person who was a friend of Maxwell’s told the Mail that there was a phone call between them when she was in jail, which became “confrontational.”
Borgerson told Maxwell he had “moved on” and was seeing someone else, the person told the Mail. Their marriage was over before the trial began, the person added.
Another person told the Mail that Borgerson didn’t attend Maxwell’s trial.
Maxwell was convicted on five of six sex trafficking charges on Wednesday and faces a potential sentence of 65 years in prison.
The Mail’s report included pictures of Borgerson with another woman near his home in Massachusetts, naming her Kris McGinn and saying she was a yoga teacher and a writer.
The friend of Maxwell’s told the Mail that the pair hope the marriage can be “dissolved amicably and quickly.”
In a letter, part of a larger bail application, Borgerson called Maxwell a “wonderful and loving person” and personally offered millions to secure her release on bail.
Maxwell’s brother, Ian Maxwell, told Insider in an interview in October that her family was “really surprised” to find out that she was married to Borgerson. At the time, he didn’t know if Borgerson and Maxwell were still together.
