(FiveNation.com)- Because Ghislaine Maxwell’s divorced husband refuses to send money so that she can hire lawyers to appeal her conviction, she is in danger of dying in prison.
The man who ditched her by phone while she was incarcerated, Scott Borgerson, 46, is ignoring her requests for one million dollars.
Her legal team will be unable to work on the appeals against her conviction and 20-year sentence until it is transferred. These appeals need to be filed before January is up.
Through a trust fund, Borgerson controls almost every penny the disgraced socialite has to her name. This includes the remnants of tens of millions of dollars that she inherited from her pedophile ex-boyfriend, Jeffrey Epstein, as well as the millions that she received from the sale of her New York home.
Scott, who married Maxwell, 60, in 2016, met her brother Kevin at her US lawyers Aidala, Bertuna & Kamins firm to discuss the appeal. Maxwell’s brother Kevin lives in the United States.
According to one of our sources, computer entrepreneur Borgerson was “being difficult,” but he still promised to give the money.
The law firm accused Borgerson of acting under “false pretenses” when the shipment did not arrive as expected.
The insider continued, saying that her attorneys have not been paid. That is a significant problem on its own.
What’s even worse is that to fund the appeal, she needs to come up with another million dollars. At the moment, Scott has not provided her with anything.
According to Maxwell’s friends, Borgerson is purposefully dragging his heels.
They believe his objective is to force his wife, a human trafficker of underage girls, to increase his pay-off in the upcoming divorce settlement.
Yesterday evening, Borgerson referred to the allegations against him as “spin” and “fake news.”
Additionally, the sale of the Massachusetts home where Ghislaine Maxwell once resided with her divorced husband will supposedly provide money for her legal defense.
Manchester-by-the-Sea is a five-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom oceanfront home initially advertised for $7.3 million in February but has decreased to just under $7 million. Maxwell’s husband, Scott Borgerson, owns the colonial-style house through Tidewood LLC, a business.
Ghislaine is currently serving her time in a low-security prison in Tallahassee, Florida.
