Ghislaine Maxwell latest: Brit believes Jeffrey Epstein was killed as friend claims she married to ‘protect her money’

0

GHISLAINE MAXWELL fears she will meet a similar end to her former lover, Jeffrey Epstein.

The British socialite – who is awaiting trial in a Brooklyn prison – reportedly believes that the convicted sex offender was killed while in jail.

“Everyone’s view, including Ghislaine’s, was that Epstein was murdered,” the family friend said.

Meanwhile an acquaintance of Maxwell’s has revealed that she may have married to protect her £10m fortune.

It comes as alleged Epstein victim Maria Farmer has revealed what Ghislaine Maxwell was like during her time with the American financier – claiming she was like a “cool sister”.

“[Maxwell] made you feel special and safe. “[She] would just dote on you — make you’d feel like you’d won the lottery,” Ms Farmer said.

“What made her tick was power and control over vulnerable people.”

MAXWELL LIVED ‘LIKE HUSBAND AND WIFE WITH BORGERSON’

Ghislaine Maxwell and Scott Borgerson acted like a “husband and wife” when they entertained guests at their £2million love-nest.

They bought a huge house together on a private estate in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts, in 2016 before falling foul of the locals.

One pal, who did not want to be named, told The Sun On Sunday: “Ghislaine was always very polite and well dressed — she was definitely living there for a while.

“I thought her and Scott were husband and wife — they seemed really happy together.

“Upstairs they had two kids’ bedrooms with toys everywhere and I thought they were their kids but I found out they were Scott’s from his previous marriage.

“They were very friendly. When I found out what she’d been accused of I was shocked.

“I only saw her in sweat pants one time – the other times she was all done up looking good.”

EPSTEIN ‘BOASTED ABOUT VISITING PUTIN’

Jeffrey Esptein bragged about flying to Moscow to meet with Vladimir Putin and discuss his finances, it has been claimed.

American journalist Edward Jay Epstein – who met the controversial mogul back in the eighties – made the claims in an investigation for The Mail on Sunday.

In the Sunday paper, the journalist said he first met Jeffrey Epstein at a Halloween party in 1987 and that he was “charming” – but didn’t appear to have the Wall Street star quality.

The pair had an on-off relationship, including a 20 plus-year silent treatment on the financier’s part.

But when the men reunited, Jeffrey Epstein bragged about his super-rich clients and talked of hopping on private jets to visit Vladimir Putin on mysterious trips to Russia, it is claimed.

The journalist adds Jeffrey Epstein also boasted he was a “financial bouncy hunter hired to track down hidden money from notorious offshore havens” but Mr Epstein actually suspected he was involved.

MAXWELL ‘WAS DEFINITELY THE MASTERMIND’

Ghislaine Maxwell was “definitely the mastermind” behind Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes and “more sinister than him”, one of the couple’s accusers has alleged.

Maria Farmer, who alleges she was sexually assaulted by the pair in 1996, was speaking after British socialite Maxwell was denied bail by a New York court last week.

Speaking after the decision, Farmer alleged while speaking to the Mail: “That woman was much more sinister than Epstein, and to me, much more dangerous.

“She was definitely the mastermind. She was in charge.”

EPSTEIN’S MANSION VANDALISED

Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion was vandalised over the weekend with a message in red paint saying “gone but not forgiven”.

A picture shared by TMZ shows bright paint across a white fence in front of the house.

The words, dripping like blood, read: “GONE BUT NOT FORGIVEN.”

Epstein allegedly assaulted dozens of teenage girls at the Florida house.

This is at least the second time someone has left graffiti on the gates of Epstein’s home, The Palm Beach Post reported.

The first time graffiti appeared was shortly before he died in a New York City federal jail in August 2019.

‘CAMERAS COVERING EPSTEIN’S CELL WERE FAULTY’

Epstein’s death by hanging sparked theories he was silenced to stop him selling out paedo friends.

Cameras covering his cell were faulty and guards falsified checks.

Maxwell’s friend said: “Everyone’s view including Ghislaine’s is Epstein was murdered. She received death threats before she was arrested.”

The pal was in regular contact with Maxwell at her secret New Hampshire hideaway.

MAXWELL ‘BELIEVES EPSTEIN WAS MURDERED IN PRISON’

Ghislaine Maxwell believes her former lover Jeffrey Epstein was murdered in his prison cell — and fears she will meet the same fate behind bars.

Friends said she hired bodyguards before being arrested after receiving death threats.

A family friend told The Sun On Sunday Maxwell, 58, fears she will be bumped off inside the brutal New York jail which warders describe as a “hellhole”.

Another source said: “It’s the same as Guantanamo Bay — lights on, noise and constant interruption of sleep”.

An inquest ruled that Epstein’s death last August at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Detention Centre was suicide.

But the 66-year-old was taken off suicide watch before he died despite being injured from either a suicide bid or an attack weeks earlier.

MAXWELL ‘HAD TO RECRUIT 3 GIRLS A DAY FOR EPSTEIN’

Ghislaine Maxwell procured three girls a day for paedo financier boyfriend Jeffery Epstein, according to shocking new allegations.

Accuser Annie Farmer says the socialite, now 58, oversaw the sex-trafficking operation for years – with Epstein demanding three girls a day.

In a damning civil lawsuit filed last December, Ms Farmer claims Maxwell “spent years overseeing and managing Epstein’s sex-trafficking network . . . Epstein’s preference was to have three different girls a day for his sexual pleasure and Maxwell was in charge of recruiting the girls”.

The allegations were revealed this weekend after Annie waived her right for anonymity and pleaded for Maxwell to be locked up.

Ms Farmer says she was “lavished” with gifts by the super-rich couple, who attempted to ensnare her into their sex trafficking ring.

WHO IS SCOTT BORGERSON?

Evidence, however, points to Ghislaine Maxwell’s secret husband being millionaire tech company CEO Scott Borgerson, 43, who has previously been linked to Maxwell.

Scott Borgerson is the 43-year-old CEO of CargoMetrics, born in 1976.

The company processes data-analytics for maritime trade and shipping.

He has most recently been valued at $100million (£76m).

Borgerson lives in a sprawling £2.3million ocean-front mansion in Massachusetts.

It’s thought that Borgerson is Maxwell’s secret husband, after her matrimonial status was revealed on Tuesday, July 14, as Manhattan prosecutors accused her of purposely hiding her wealth, reports the New York Post.

“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,” Assistant US Attorney Alison Moe told Manhattan federal Judge Alison Nathan.

Borgerson is linked to the $1million New Hampshire mansion where Maxwell was snared by the FBI.

The court heard how Maxwell is claimed to have purchased her bolthole with an ex-military man named “Scott”.

HOW MAXWELL ALLEGEDLY MET BORGERSON

Ghislaine Maxwell — who has refused to name her mystery husband to prosecutors — lived with US tech millionaire Borgerson, 44, before disappearing last year.

Maxwell, 58, who began peddling environmentalism in recent years, is understood to have met Borgerson at a conference for the Arctic Circle in Iceland in 2013.

Six months later, in April 2014, Borgerson cited an “irretrievable breakdown” in his marriage to wife Rebecca, divorce papers obtained by The Sun On Sunday show.

Heiress Maxwell is said to have bragged to friends that the 6ft 5inch former Coast Guard officer was her “Navy SEAL”.

In 2016, documents appear to show that Maxwell, using the alias “Jennifer Ellmax”, was listed with Borgerson as the new owner of a seven-bedroom home in Manchester-by-the-Sea.

BEATRICE ‘ISOLATED WITH PRINCE ANDREW SO HE COULD WALK HER DOWN AISLE’ DESPITE WEDDING PIC ABSENCE

The Duke of York was able to walk his daughter, Princess Beatrice, down the aisle at her wedding on Friday because they had been isolating together.

Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi married at Windsor Castle – however, there was no sign of Prince Andrew in any official photos, despite him playing a big role in the ceremony.

Beatrice had been isolating with her parents at Royal Lodge in Windsor, meaning that the Duke was able to walk her down the aisle at the private ceremony, according to the Telegraph.

It had previously been widely reported that the couple had been isolating with Mr Mapelli Mozzi’s family in Oxfordshire.

DONALD TRUMP SAID ‘JUST ASK ANDREW’ WHEN QUIZZED IN 2015 ABOUT EPSTEIN’S ‘PAEDOPHILE ISLAND’

Donald Trump encouraged reporters to quiz Prince Andrew about ex-pal Jeffrey Epstein’s “cesspool” Pedo Island.

He mentioned the royal in pre-presidential footage filmed in 2015, around the time one of Epstein’s accusers, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, alleged in court documents that the millionaire forced her to have sex with him.

Trump said: “I think he has a problem, that island was really a cesspool, there’s no question about it, just ask Prince Andrew – he’ll tell you about it.

“The island was an absolute cesspool.”

EPSTEIN AND MAXWELL ‘FILMED PEOPLE HAVING SEX WITH UNDERAGE GIRLS’

Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell filmed videos of powerful people having sex with underage girls, a former friend to the pair has claimed.

A reformed jewel thief – who goes by the made up name of William Steel – alleges the couple made him watch movies to prove how they “owned” people – and the extent of power they had over high profile individuals.

The ex-criminal-turned-writer revealed how he was shown footage involving two high-profile US politicians having sex with minors.

In the exclusive interview with The Sun, he also tells how two high society figures engaged in a threesome with an under-age girl.

MAXWELL ‘MAY STILL MAKE A DEAL WITH COURT’, CLAIMS LAWYER

Ghislaine Maxwell is believed to be considering telling US prosecutors everything she knows about Jeffrey Epstein’s rich and powerful friends.

The British socialite and alleged child sex trafficker is facing a 35-year prison sentence as well as numerous death threats.

Her lawyers have said she “vigorously denies the charges, intends to fight them and is entitled to the presumption of innocence”.

But she reportedly has a “treasure trove” of documents and video and audio recordings similar to those seized by FBI agents from late financier Epstein’s luxury properties in the US and the Caribbean.

A source close to her legal team said that this evidence could help her case. They said: “I doubt she’ll walk away scot free. There would be too much of a public outcry if that were to happen because of the high-profile nature of this case. But she could drastically reduce any sentence, if convicted, by becoming a key witness.”

GHISLAINE MAXWELL ‘HAD TO RECRUIT THREE GIRLS A DAY FOR EPSTEIN’S PLEASURE’, VICTIM CLAIMS

Ghislaine Maxwell procured three girls a day for paedo financier boyfriend Jeffery Epstein, according to new shocking allegations.

Accuser Annie Farmer says the socialite, now 58, oversaw the sex-trafficking operation for years – with Epstein demanding three girls a day.

The allegations were revealed this weekend after Annie waived her right for anonymity and pleaded for Maxwell to be locked up.

Ms Farmer says she was “lavished” with gifts by the super-rich couple, who attempted to ensnare her into their sex trafficking ring.

The psychologist, now 41, also claims she was ordered to strip naked and groped by Maxwell in 1996, when she was aged just 16, reports The Sunday Times.

In a six-count indictment against Maxwell, Ms Farmer is identified as “minor number two”.

Speaking after Maxwell was denied bail, Annie’s older sister Maria told the Daily Mail: “That woman was much more sinister than Epstein, and to me, much more dangerous.

“She was definitely the mastermind. She was in charge.”

MAXWELL SECRETLY MARRIED ‘TO PROTECT HER FORTUNE’

Ghislaine Maxwell secretly married to protect her £10 million fortune being seized and given to victims, one of her former friends claimed.

The pal said that for a while Maxwell had been in a relationship with an American tech and shipping entrepreneur named Scott Borgerson.

The former friend added: “No one knew she was married.

“I don’t know of any other guy who she has actually seen.”

Another acquaintance of Maxwell, who last saw her two years ago, speculated that she may have married secretly “to protect the money she had”

GHISLAINE MAXWELL’S FATHER ‘PUT MONEY OVER MORALS’

Ghislaine Maxwell’s father, publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell, put his money over his morals, as he embezzled the pension fund of his employees, The National has stated.

The paper added: “Ghislaine Maxwell, it goes without saying, had no moral funding from her father, whatever was her financial inheritance and what amount of this was pension fund loot.”

MAXWELL’S EX EPSTEIN BOASTED ABOUT ‘FLYING TO MOSCOW TO VISIT PUTIN’ AS SECRETS BEHIND HIS MILLIONS ARE REVEALED

A shocking new investigation has revealed Jeffrey Esptein allegedly bragged about flying to Moscow to meet with Vladimir Putin.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, American journalist Edward Jay Epstein made the revelations as part of his investigation into how the financier made his millions.

The journalist first met Jeffrey Epstein in 1988 – he said he was “charming” but didn’t appear to have the Wall Street star quality.

After the pair stopped talking, Mr Epstein remained enthralled by Jeffrey Epstein’s bizarrely glamorous lifestyle, rubbing shoulders with royalty, the super-rich and a seemingly endless stream of “the most beautiful women I had ever seen in my life.”

The journalist claims Jeffrey Epstein got back in touch with him after a frosty 24-year silence, to discuss the book Lolita – a controversial novel which sees an adult man become sexually obsessed with a 12-year-old girl.

Mr Epstein had known the book’s author, and agreed to meet – but says he really went to find out how Jeffrey Epstein made his millions.

He claims when they met, the walls were adorned with photos of Jeffrey Epstein with Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Emirate Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, who the financier suggested some were clients.

Mr Epstein writes he then asked: “‘What about Russia? Any clients there?’”

He claims the sex-offender then”shrugged and said he often flew to Moscow to see Vladimir Putin.”

PRINCE ANDREW’S WEBSITE SUDDENLY VANISHES AS VISITORS REDIRECTED TO OFFICIAL ROYAL PAGE AMID EPSTEIN SCANDAL

Prince Andrew’s website has suddenly vanished with visitors redirected to an official royal page amid the Epstein and Maxwell scandal.

The Duke of York has been under renewed pressure in recent weeks as his former friend Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested for alleged child sex abuse and grooming.

Anyone trying to access thedukeofyork.org is now redirected to his section on the main royal.uk page.

The page begins by pointing out Andrew has “stepped back from his public duties for the foreseeable future” due to his links to Epstein.

It also features a statement he released at the time, in which he said he “unequivocally regrets” his association with the paedo, which had “become a major disruption”.

PROTESTERS GATHER OUTSIDE BROOKLYN DETENTION CENTRE CALLING ON PRISON OFFICIALS TO KEEP MAXWELL ALIVE

A group of protesters gathered outside the Metropolitan Detention Centre in Sunset Park in Brooklyn, New York yesterday for a protest calling on prison officials to keep Epstein pimp Ghislaine Maxwell alive.

PRINCE ANDREW SHOULD BE PANICKING ABOUT GHISLAINE ‘SQUEALING’ BECAUSE HE’S GUILTY, EPSTEIN’S VICTIM SAYS

Prince Andrew should be panicking about Ghislaine “squealing” because he knows he’s guilty, Jeffrey Epstein’s victim Virginia Roberts says.

Ms Roberts told CBS This Morning that the Prince needed to be “held accountable” and that they needed to “show the world that the rich and the mighty can fall too.”

Ms Roberts, 36, alleges Epstein used her as a sex slave and forced her to sleep with the Duke of York three times in 2001 when she was 17.

Prince Andrew, 60, has always strongly denied the allegations against him.

Roberts stood by her accusations, saying the Prince “was an abuser, he was a participant.”

She also thought Ms Maxwell’s life was in danger too as she was reportedly “squealing” on “some of the people that she has videos on”.

Ms Roberts refused to give names on who may have featured in the videos but alluded to “government officials”, “politicians” and “royalty”.

KARREN BRADY SAYS: ‘LOCKING UP MAXWELL IS A STEP TOWARDS JUSTICE’

Baroness Karren Brady has shared her thoughts on the Ghislaine Maxwell story.

Writing in The Sun, the Baroness said: “A first step towards potential justice seems to have been taken this week when Maxwell was denied bail and deemed an “extreme flight risk”.

“And, given that Epstein managed to evade justice by killing himself in prison, I’m sure we all breathed a sigh of relief when the news broke that Maxwell would not be able to flee the country and avoid a fair trial.”

She added: “There are many disturbing things about this story but most worrying of all is how much Maxwell’s alleged behaviour challenges our assumption that, when the chips are down, women will help other women — and children. Instead, she is accused of aiding their abuse and ill-treatment.”

MASSEUSE, PICKED BY MAXWELL, CLAIMS PRINCE ANDREW SAID HE’D BEEN BITTEN BY MOSQUITO ON ‘HIS ROYAL A**E’ ON EPSTEIN ISLAND

Prince Andrew once told a masseuse on Jeffrey Epstein’s Caribbean island that he had been bitten on his “royal arse” by a mosquito, it has been claimed.

The Duke of York allegedly had several “non-sexual” massages with Heidi Windel, 75, who was in her early 60s during the 1999 sessions.

Miss Windel said that Ghislaine Maxwell – Andrew’s close pal – called her to the island and to set up her table in one of the cottages.

She said: “This was a bit unusual because you bring your own supplies – she wanted me to use their sheets.”

The duke lay face down on the table under a sheet and Miss Windel massaged him without incident.

She said: “When the massage was over, he got very chatty and had me in stitches talking about the errant mosquito that had evaded its net the night before and bitten his ‘royal arse’.”

EPSTEIN VICTIM CHOOSE TO GO PUBLIC AFTER HIS DEATH CLAIMING MAXWELL WOULD HARM HER OR HER FAMILY

Annie Farmer’s lawyers claim she was only persuaded to go public with the allegations following his death, as she: “Feared that Epstein and his co-conspirators, including Maxwell, would harm her or her family, or ruin her life, if she came forward.”

Maxwell has asked for Farmer’s claim, which has been filed at the same New York court that is handling her criminal case, to be dismissed.
