(New York Post) Ghislaine Maxwell believes her ex lover Jeffrey Epstein was murdered behind bars and lives in fear of facing the same unfortunate end, according to a new report.
“Everyone’s view including Ghislaine’s is Epstein was murdered. She received death threats before she was arrested,” an unnamed friend told The Sun.
A federal judge denied Maxwell bail on Tuesday and ordered the 58-year-old to spend the next year awaiting trial at the Brooklyn Detention Center.
The friend, who the Sun described as “in regular contact with Maxwell at her secret New Hampshire hideaway,” said the death threats spurred the British socialite to hire security guards, and led her to believe she may not live to see her trial.

(Tatler) Following on from the news that Ghislaine Maxwell has been denied bail – and will stay in detention for a year ahead of her trial next summer – further revelations about the former socialite’s activities in recent years have come to light.
According to the Times, Maxwell and Scott Borgerson, an American tech CEO and shipping entrepreneur, previously purchased a house together in Massachusetts.
The pair are said to have lived there for some years until the arrest of Maxwell’s former boyfriend, the late American financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, prompted her to go into hiding.
The information is reportedly disclosed in property and court records, first brought to light in the Daily Mail.
The documents also reveal that neighbors became embroiled in a legal dispute with Borgerson and Maxwell, over access to a beach on the private estate where they had their house…
Planning records reveal an application for renovations to the property, made in July 2016 by Borgerson and ‘Jennifer Ellmax’ – a surname also used as the title for Maxwell’s companies, and in an email address linked to a former home of Maxwell’s in New York.
A former coastguard, Borgerson was listed for a time as a director of Maxwell’s oceanic foundation, the TerraMar Project.
Former friends of Maxwell’s have suggested that Borgerson is the most likely candidate for her unknown spouse.
