[Blind Gossip] There has been a shocking disclosure in the case against Ghislaine Maxwell, the confidante of Jeffrey Epstein.
She is married.
From The New York Daily News:
Secrecy-obsessed Ghislaine Maxwell told the feds she’s married — but she won’t say to whom, federal prosecutors say.
Maxwell’s desire to keep her spouse’s identity secret may have worked against her effort to seek bail.
Maxwell wanted to post a $5 million bond. Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison Moe opposed that idea on the ground that Maxwell provided no information about her spouse or anyone else who would back up the bond.
“In addition to failing to describe in any way the absence of proposed cosigners of a bond, the defendant also makes no mention whatsoever about the financial circumstances or assets of her spouse whose identity she declined to provide to Pretrial Services,” Moe said at Maxwell’s court hearing Tuesday.
Pretrial Services employees gather information on defendants for judges, among other duties.
“There is no information about who will be cosigning this bond or their assets and no details whatsoever,” Moe said.
This adds a fascinating twist to this legal case!
Who is this mystery man?
Why did she marry him?
Was Chrissy Teigen involved in any of this? (Just kidding!)
Wait a minute. They don’t mention the gender or call the spouse “he.” Could her spouse be a woman?

Spouse and/or Reason for marriage: Scott Borgerson
Although Jeffrey Epstein is no longer with us, Ghislaine Maxwell, his former lover and accomplice, is still here… and is facing huge legal trouble.
The disclosure in court filings that she was secretly married was a shock.
Here’s how that marriage happened!
Approximately seven years ago, Ghislaine Maxell had an affair with a married man.
His name is Scott Borgerson. Although he has been reported to be a former Navy SEAL, that is not true. He supposedly attended the United States Coast Guard Academy, but he was not a Navy SEAL.
A bio on him states the following:
Dr. Borgerson earned a B.S. from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy with high honors as well as M.A.L.D. and Ph.D. degrees in international relations from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
So, not a Navy SEAL. Not a medical doctor. Went to law school but not a lawyer.
Borgerson is actually a wealthy tech executive. We’ll get to that wealthy part in a minute.
A few years ago, Borgerson was married to a woman named Rebecca. Here is Rebecca.
They had two children together.
Borgerson met Ghislaine Maxwell at a professional conference sponsored by The Arctic Circle, an organization founded by former President of Iceland.
This may be a photo of when they first met.
Notice Borgerson’s conservative appearance and his wedding ring? That would all change after this conference.
Long story short, Borgerson had an affair with Maxwell, dumped his wife, and then married Maxwell.
Here is what Scott Borgerson looks like now.
Much thinner, beard and mustache. Almost like a disguise.
Let’s talk about the money.
It’s important because Ghislaine Maxwell is facing serious liability for her role in recruiting and/or allegedly trafficking young women to service Jeffrey Epstein and his friends.
You know, friends like Prince Andrew.
Yes, that’s Ghislaine Maxwell lurking about in the back of what Prince Andrew claims is a fake photo of him with an underage girl at one of Jeffrey Epstein’s properties.
Although Maxwell had considerable assets prior to entering the marriage, an awful lot of financial shenanigans took place right after the marriage.
We’ll sum it up for you.
- Maxwell had over $20M in assets before she married
- After she married, she transferred the majority of her assets into a trust controlled by Borgerson
- In 2019, all assets in the trust were distributed to Borgerson
The forensic accounting on this is complicated and there are a lot of trusts and shell companies involved, but it seems to shows a pattern of Ghislaine Maxwell attempting to hide/move her money around.
Remember when no one could find Ghislaine Maxwell for over a year? The FBI was on a worldwide manhunt for Maxwell, yet no one could figure out where she was.
Ghislaine Maxwell was finally found hiding out in a luxury home on a 156-acre estate in New Hampshire. It turns out that the house was purchased with $1 million cash from a “carefully anonymized LLC” that has now been traced back to Borgerson.
Clearly, those trees aren’t the only shady thing about this couple.
Even though she says that she is now worth only a couple of million dollars, Maxwell is proposing a $28.5 million bail package for her release.
Of course, Borgerson is claiming that Maxwell is a wonderful person and has written glowing letters to the judge about her outstanding character. He’s even putting up the bail money for her. How generous.
Yes, Ghislaine Maxwell wants out of prison. You see, she feels that the condition of the prison is “onerous” and it’s very “stressful” for her. She doesn’t like the frequent searches or being woken up on a regular basis to make sure that she doesn’t off herself like her pal Jeffrey Epstein.
Awww. Poor Ghislaine Maxwell. So poor. So innocent. So stressed.
We do not know if the judge will grant bail, as Maxwell is considered a serious flight risk.
However, the introduction of her shady and money-manipulating husband into all this is proving to be very interesting… and very enlightening!

Alan Dershowitz – I believe he has some skeletons in his closet and Ghislaine could do a lot of damage to his reputation. I hope Alan gets what is coming to him.
Prince Andrew, she wants spousal immunity
I’m going sooo far out on a limb to say Prince Andrew? These people are disgusting.
If she ain’t the Bride of Hades, at the very least she’s married to disgusting pedo-Prince Andrew. Might be why he hasn’t talked about her publicly.
Does it really matter if her spouse cannot testify against her? I’m sure his is not the only witness.
Maybe she’s married to one of the foreign girls she trafficked as a way of avoiding suspicion in bringing her over? I don’t think she’s in a legit traditional marriage, whomever it is it for a dodgy reason.
As much as I want it to be Andrew, there is no way the British monarchy would approve that marriage.
Mohammad Bin Salman
Prince Andrew!!! So they don’t have to testify against each other. How juicy would that be?!?
Could it be Prince Andrew…..Can a Spouse testify against the other Spouse…She has bank accounts across the World…Her security guy is British…I wonder……
I say it is Prince Andrew so he protects her against testifying against him.
I bet she was married to Epstein, himself !
Yes, that was exactly my first thought! It’s definitely Epstein I believe.
Prince Andrew . Wouldn’t that be a kick in the pants. Hahahahaha
Whoever she is married to it’s a marriage of convenience to prevent them from testifying against each other.
If she’s married to Prince Andrew they can’t testify against eachother!
Wow if that’s true!
Teressa S says
Reason – SPOUSAL PRIVILEGE under the 5th
She married her spouse so he or she wouldn’t have to testify against her in court.
Prince Andrew for the husband, as his wife she can’t be forced to testify against him.
Spouse: Geraldo Rivera
Spousal privilege. A spouse cannot be compelled to testify against the other spouse. However, it normally doesn’t apply to information told to the person before marriage. If she married the person who has the most dirt on her and could do her the most harm – it’s a way to protect yourself.
Yes! And they can talk about what they did, when, where how etc… just not any written or verbal communication between spouses. As mentioned above, while married. Anything before is fair game.
And I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that she married someone who carries diplomatic immunity in an attempt to further protect herself. With backdated perfectly forged documents and an airtight paper trail in a tax haven like US Virgin Islands (which enabled Epstein, imho)
Another possibility is a marriage to someone in Israeli or other intelligence agencies around the world. Epstein and Maxwell are rumored to be involved directly or peripherally with global agencies, which may explain the plea deal. Or Jean-Luc Brunel, the “modeling agency” owner in Paris who supposedly supplied girls.
in regards to Chrissy teigan. john legend along with beyonce and many others are identified in the pilots log as passengers on epsteins plane.
scott borgerson. a tech guy in england
Prince Andrew is her mystery spouse, she can’t be forced to testify against him if they’re married.
She’s married to Prince Andrew, so they can’t testify against each other! Lol
She could be married to a woman. I was thinking that maybe she’s not out so she doesn’t want to identify her spouse, but she’s already been exposed as a procurer of underaged individuals for the pleasure of Insanely wealthy celebrities, so it’d be pretty insulting if she thought coming out as gay would be worse than that.
I don’t think she is legally married to anyone. However, she needs to be incarcerated in prison for the rest of her life. Sick and evil pedophile.
No idea. I hope this subhuman gets a long sentence in prison.

Spouse: CNN reporter Vicky Ward? Reason for Marriage: She can’t testify against Maxwell? Maria Farmer, an alleged victim of Ghislaine and Epstein cited Ward as the person who told Ghislaine Maxwell that Maria was spilling the beans to the FBI. Ward had interviewed Maria Farmer for a Vanity Fair piece on Epstein back in 2003. Obviously Farmer had no idea how duplicitous Vicky Ward was. Needles to say Ward is also a close friend of Maxwell and heaven knows who else in that mob.
Well, by American law a spouse can’t be forced to testify against you. Wouldn’t it be crazy if her spouse was Prince Andrew? She’s a horrible person, and she deserves everything that’s coming to her.
What if it was Prince Andrew 😲
Probally Cargo Metrix CEO Scott Borgenson
Immunity from testifing if she stays alive and inheritance if she is Epsteined.
Wouldn’t be a hoot if she married Prince Andrew or
Dershowitz on the DL.
Perhaps the spouse is what was keeping her in the US. It also may be someone very tangled in the Epstein abuse case. They can’t be forced to testify against each other. Very interesting, BG!
Every survivor of sexual abuse is glued to this story.
I know I am.
I don’t wonder about her marriage.
I would not be surprised if she’s intimate with her long-time Denver lawyer Laura Menninger. Not sure why – just a hunch. What I want is justice for those women. I want that more than anything.

(never make assumptions)
Her being married to Prince Andrew would be an amazing twist to this story.
Very possible. He’s far enough from the throne now that he doesn’t have to get permission from the Queen. He definitely could have done that secretly.
