Ghislaine Maxwell's boyfriend abandoned his wife and young children for Jeffrey Epstein's suspected madam five years ago, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.
Scott Borgerson, 43, the CEO of a tech company, left his wife, Rebecca, and two young children for 57-year-old Maxwell, a source close to the family told DailyMail.com.
'Scott - Wife - Ghislaine - Years - Rebecca
'Scott left his wife for Ghislaine around five years ago. It's just egregious what's happened to Rebecca,' the source, who asked for anonymity, told DailyMail.com.
'Rebecca and Scott seemed like a really nice couple. But as time went on, he was very preoccupied and would be on his cell phone a lot, presumably on business calls. He was away a lot for work.'
Marriage - Divorce - Records - Picture - Borgerson
When the marriage finally crumbled in 2014, divorce records paint a disturbing picture of Borgerson, with accusations of him being physically violent, abusive, 'extremely controlling' and having an alcohol problem.
Borgerson, who married Rebecca in Palm Beach, Florida, in May 2001, once allegedly threatened her, saying: 'Don't make me beat you in front of the children.'
Borgerson - Shipping - Technology - Firm - Cargometrics
Borgerson's shipping technology firm, Cargometrics, was valued at more than $100 million in 2016, according to the Financial Times.
Borgerson is believed to have met Maxwell five years ago through speaking engagements connected to ocean preservation, a subject on which they share a passion. They both pictured speaking at the Arctic Circle Assembly in Reykjavik in 2014.
Maxwell - Charity - TerraMar - Project - Week
Maxwell shut down her ocean charity, the TerraMar Project, a week after Epstein was arrested in July.
Around 2015, Borgerson told Rebecca he was going to London on business and he would send videos.
'Rebecca - Video - London - Miami - Ghislaine
'Rebecca watched a video of him and although he said he was going to be in London, he was actually in Miami with Ghislaine,' the source said.
'Rebecca was sitting there with her two young children watching this video of Scott and Ghislaine hugging and kissing.
