Maxwell's secret husband

British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is secretly married, but she is refusing to identify her spouse.

The 58 year old, who is behind bars without bail on charges of recruiting and grooming young women to be molested by her convicted pedophile ex, financier Jeffrey Epstein, has been accused of hiding the extent of her wealth from prosecutors.

They dredged up information about her marriage during her appearance in Manhattan Federal Court via video conferencing from Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Center on Tuesday, when she pleaded not guilty to the counts against her.

"In addition to failing to describe in any way the absence of proposed co-signers of a bond, 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 U.S. Attorney Alison Moe told Judge Alison Nathan, according to the New York Post.

"There's no information about who will be co-signing this bond or their assets, and no details whatsoever."

Maxwell's lawyers asked for their client to be released on bail ahead of her trial in July, 2021, but the judge sided with prosecutors, who insisted the socialite is a flight risk, ruling she has already exhibited an "extraordinary capacity to evade detection" prior to her arrest in New Hampshire by FBI agents on July 2.

She faces up to 35 years in prison if found guilty.
