Disgraced and convicted Ghislaine Maxwell was dumped by her husband during a “confrontational” phone call while she was stewing in solitary confinement, it has been reported.
Maxwell, 60, the former girlfriend and confidant of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, was last week found guilty of sex trafficking among other offences. She will likely die in jail.
Now, the Mail on Sunday reports that her former husband Scott Borgerson, 46, dumped her over the phone while she sat in a New York Jail after he got together with yoga teacher Kris McGinn.
Speaking to the paper, a source said: “There was a dramatic phone call between them, while she was in jail in solitary confinement. It became confrontational.
“Scott told her he had moved on and was seeing someone else.
“The marriage was past tense there and then. It’s over. The marriage was over before the trial started."
Borgerson, who the New York Post reports was recently seen cavorting with McGinn near his $3.9 million (£2.8 million) New England mansion, missed his wife’s trial completely.
Another person close to the pair told the Mail this was a key hint.
They said: “He did not attend a single day of her trial. Read into that what you will.”
The couple married in 2016 and have been very reclusive, with their union only being publicly revealed when Borgerson attempted to get his wife freed with a $28.5 million (£21 million) bail package in 2020.
Regardless of the state of their marriage, it appears very unlikely they'll ever live together again.

If the maximum sentence is brought against Maxwell she could end up facing 65 years in jail. This means she would be released from the penitentiary at the age of 125.
Her sex trafficking offence alone can carry a maximum sentence of 40 years according to the Mirror.
Speaking to the BBC, a former prosecutor with the southern district of New York Sarah Krissoff, said Maxwell will be facing a significant prison sentence: "Given the involvement of minors, the judge has really great discretion to impose a significant sentence, and based on the evidence that was presented at trial, frankly, I expect the judge to impose a very severe sentence upon her.”
