Who is Ghislaine Maxwell's husband? Here's why tech firm CEO Scott Borgerson is speculated to be her spouse
Ghislaine Maxwell’s lawyers have stated in a motion filed on December 23 that Maxwell discussed divorce with her husband prior to her July arrest in order to “protect” him from “being associated with her.” Her attorneys are pushing back against prosecutors’ claims that Maxwell gave “plainly inconsistent statements” about her relationship with her husband in her proposed $28.5 million bail package.
As reported by the New York Post, “Ms. Maxwell and her spouse had discussed the idea of getting a divorce as an additional way to get distance between [them] to protect him (redacted) from the terrible consequences of being associated with her,” the filing states.
There has been ambiguity surrounding the identity of Maxwell’s spouse. While some reports have stated that tech company CEO Scott Borgerson is her husband, but an August article in The New York Times states “no record has been found of any marriage.” According to a story by New York Post in July 2020, after her marital status was revealed, the speculations were rife about Scott being the ‘secret husband’. But in 2019, Scott denied the two were romantically linked, as well as the allegation that Maxwell was staying at his home.
In 2019, he had told NY Post, “It’s pretty crazy, all of this just exploded. People keep asking me, but I am not dating Ghislaine, I’m home alone with my cat.” Scott had also said, “If you want to write a longer article. I’m passionate about ocean policy and I wish people were as interested in Jones Act reform, joining the law of the sea, and funding icebreakers. On this, I’m your guy.” As per the NYT article, in 2010, he founded Cargometrics, a “maritime innovation company” that uses data systems to study shipping patterns, from which the company concludes what goods are being sent where and in what quantities and then bases investment decisions on the results.
In the December 23 filing, Maxwell’s lawyers gave fresh details on the divorce discussion in an effort to rebuke prosecutors’ claims, as reported by The Guardian. They also said: “Nevertheless, in the weeks following the initial bail hearing, she and her spouse, therefore, had no reason to continue discussing divorce, which neither of them wanted in the first place.”
According to a report in The Times, Maxwell transferred assets worth $20 million to Borgerson soon after their alleged marriage in 2016. Reports have also attributed Maxwell's bail application in Manhattan, New York on Monday, December 14 to him. Borgerson, in a letter to the courts, said that she is a “wonderful and loving person” as he laid out a $28.5 million bail package that includes $8 million in property, and $500,000 in cash.
On Twitter, people were discussing Maxwell but most opinions speculated that she’ll be pardoned since President Donald Trump has been granting quite a few pardons off late. One user wrote: “Anyone placing odds or taking bets on when we can expect Trump to pardon Ghislaine Maxwell? I am thinking it will be one of his last pardons as I expect the blowback to be significant, but I do expect him to pardon her.” Another said, “I saw Ghislaine Maxwell trending and I assumed Trump had just given her a pardon.” One alleged, “Ghislaine Maxwell is making yet another sad pathetic attempt to get out of prison...The feds have so much on her and she’s clearly singing like a bird outing more and more of the deep state operatives who have been to Epstein island!!”
Others couldn't care less about her husband or lack one as some speculated "she probably got married to get out of testifying against her and her fake husband." Another speaking on the $28.5M bail package and the role of her supposed 'secret husband' said: "It wasn't his reputation silly, it was to funnel money out of her stockpile so she does not have to pay out damages in the civil court.
She prob only got married to get out of testifying against her and her fake husband. That's all— LAURIE (@WellKnownGirl) December 24, 2020
