Scott Borgerson and his wife Ghislaine Maxwell battled for years to keep their marriage a secret, but it was finally discovered in court in the summer of 2020.
Scott Borgerson, who is he?
Scott Borgerson is a 45-year-old former CEO of a technology firm. Chris Borgerson and Sara Borgerson are his parents.
His father is a former marine and Jefferson County, Missouri Deputy Sheriff. His mother was also a high school teacher. He and his family grew up in a little town in Missouri.
Scott was the founder and CEO of CargoMetrics Technologies, a Boston-based shipping data analytics firm.
In 2010, he created the company. However, due to the increased media attention in his relationship with Ghislaine, he resigned from the company in October 2020.
Borgerson is a veteran of the military. For a decade, he was a member of the United States Coast Guard.
He received his Ph.D. in International Relations from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in 2006, according to Crunchbase.
Rebecca Borgerson was Scott Borgerson’s first wife.
Scott married Rebecca in Palm Beach, Florida in May 2000, according to sources. The couple has a 10-year-old daughter and a 13-year-old son.
In 2014, Borgerson filed for divorce from his wife Rebecca, citing an irreconcilable disagreement, after more than 13 years of marriage. However, six months after filing for divorce, he attempted to reunite with his wife.
But it didn’t work, and in December 2015, the divorce was formalized.
Scott allegedly had an alcohol problem and acted inappropriately toward his wife and small children, according to the divorce filings.
Is Ghislaine Maxwell really his wife?
Scott and Maxwell are said to have met for the first time during the Arctic Circle Assembly in Reykjavik in 2014. He allegedly abandoned his wife and children in favor of Maxwell, who is 14 years his senior.
Scott told his then-wife Rebecca in 2014 that he was heading to London for business and would send her recordings.
Maxwell and Borgerson have been living together at his $3 million remote beachside property in Manchester-by-the-Sea since 2016, according to DailyMail.
After four years, it was revealed that they had secretly married.
In July 2020, Ghislaine was arrested on various accusations relating to Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual abuse of young women and girls.
Their connection was made public in court, ostensibly to protect Maxwell’s money. Scott and Ghislaine have both consented to a bail bond of $22.5 million. It also includes five other bonds worth a total of $5 million.
