Court papers recently revealed that Jeffrey Epstein cohort Ghislaine Maxwell secretly tied the knot in 2016 — but it turns out she was about to split from her husband when she was busted in July, according to newly unsealed documents.

After federal agents picked up Epstein’s alleged madam on a six-count indictment, she allegedly told pretrial services that she was “in the process of divorcing her husband,” wrote Assistant US Attorneys Maurene Comey, Alison Moe and Laura Pomerantz in a motion opposing her proposed $28.5 million bail package.

The prosecutors called out Maxwell for not addressing the “plainly inconsistent statements” in her latest request for release to home confinement, which included a letter from her husband, tech CEO Scott Borgerson, describing their loving marriage.

Borgerson “refused to come forward at the time of her arrest” in July when she made her first bid for bail, undermining her claim “that her marriage is a tie that would keep her in the United States,” the prosecutors argued.

They also noted Maxwell’s evasiveness about her finances in seeking to keep her behind bars. Maxwell told pretrial services her total wealth is $3.8 million — and now is claiming she and her husband share $22.5 million in assets that she funneled through a trust to him, the Manhattan federal filing argued. In the bank forms for the trust, they both listed their marital status as single, prosecutors wrote.

The three victims that Maxwell is charged with recruiting as minors to engage in sex acts with Epstein in the ‘90s want the defendant to remain locked up, fearing that with her vast financial resources and foreign ties, she’ll flee the country, the papers state.

Alleged victim Annie Farmer wrote a scathing letter urging US District Judge Alison Nathan not to release Maxwell.
 
“She has lived a life of privilege, abusing her position of power to live beyond the rules,” wrote Farmer. “Fleeing the country in order to escape once more would fit with her long history of anti-social behavior.”

Farmer called Maxwell a “psychopath” who has “demonstrated a complete lack of remorse for her central role in procuring girls for Epstein to abuse.”

Prosecutors also knocked down Maxwell’s claims that her jail conditions are unbearable, noting that she “has her own shower, has exclusive use of two different computers, has her own phone to use, and has her own television.”

Nathan, who rejected Maxwell’s request for release on a $5 million bond in July, calling her a serious flight risk, is expected to rule on the latest bail bid before Christmas.
