Ghislaine Maxwell’s ‘husband’ Scott Borgerson talked up dating high profile woman but not identity

The man who is rumored to be Ghislaine Maxwell’s husband is said to have once bragged to his parents that he was dating a ‘ high profile woman’ but had no idea at the time about her links to Jeffrey Epstein. 

Scott Borgerson, 43, a tech entrepreneur from Boston is said to have left his wife Rebecca, with whom he had two children with in 2014 in order to be with Maxwell. 

Borgerson’s relatives have not revealed whether she is part of the family despite being approached by a number of media outlets over the last week.

One source is said to have told The Sun that he had in fact spoken about her but that any kind of marriage would have been a ‘complete surprise.’      

Borgerson’s estranged father Chris had said publicly that his son is ‘very private’ man but hinted that he knew of the supposed relationship.   

‘I knew the [Borgerson] family a while ago, and I met Scott once or twice. I knew he was dating someone new after he split from his wife.

‘When he told his parents of his relationship, I didn’t know who she was. I don’t think he told them of her background or what she’d been accused of.

‘I just know he described her as a high profile woman – I thought she was a model or something.

‘He said she spoke different languages and seemed very impressed by her.

‘I’ve been out of the Borgerson family circle for some years, so I don’t know if they got married,’ the source said to The Sun.

Borgerson is believed to have met Maxwell six years ago through speaking engagements connected to ocean preservation.

They both were pictured speaking at the Arctic Circle Assembly in Reykjavik in 2014.

Records also revealed Maxwell’s $1 million New Hampshire home was purchased by a company that reportedly has ties to Borgerson.

The buyer is listed as Granite Reality LLC – a mysterious corporation that was set up just weeks prior the purchase.

Prosecutors revealed on Tuesday that Maxwell was married and had toured her Bradford, New Hampshire hideaway with a man named ‘Scott’. 

DailyMail.com previously revealed Maxwell and Borgerson were a couple, and until last December, she had been living at his $2 million Manchester-by-the-Sea property.

The bombshell marriage revelation came when US Prosecutor Alison Moe detailed Maxwell’s alleged lack of transparency when it came to her court filings, during her detention hearing earlier this week.

She said Maxwell ‘makes no mention whatsoever about the financial circumstances or assets of her spouse whose identity she declined to provide to Pretrial Services.’

Moe did not say who she believed Maxwell’s spouse was or give any indication as to how long they had been married.

A source told ABC News disclosure of the marriage was intended to show the judge Maxwell has not been that forthcoming about her circumstances and finances.

Maxwell was romantically involved with Jeffrey Epstein from around 1992, but then became his 'right-hand woman', managing his property empire and, it is alleged, his trafficking of minors

Prior to the revelation in court, there had been no previous suggestions that she had been married, with the attention focused on her romantic relationship with Epstein in the mid-1990s, when the alleged grooming is said to have taken place. 

Maxwell is accused of grooming girls as young as 14 for Epstein to abuse between 1994 and 1997, a period when she was his girlfriend.

She faces up to 35 years in prison if found guilty of the charges to which she has pleaded not guilty. 

Maxwell is being closely watched in her cell at the fortress-like Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn as the Department of Justice wants to ensure she does not kill herself like Epstein, who hanged himself last August while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
