Her mysterious spouse is said to be a millionaire, and he is believed to have been linked to the New Hampshire home where Maxwell was arrested by the FBI.
A court heard how Maxwell, known as “Jen,” purchased the property with a veteran named “Scott,” reports the report.
They both used the surname “Marshall,” reports the Sun.
US lawyer Alison Moe said Maxwell was married during his detention hearing on Tuesday.
She did not reveal who her husband was or how long they had been married.
Ms. Moe added that the defendant did not disclose her spouse’s financial situation or assets and refused to disclose her name to the status service.
The claim that Maxwell is married may have been a calculated measure to show the judge that she had not been transparent with her situation and finances, a source told ABC News.
Maxwell was denied bail Tuesday after New York district judge Alison Nathan deemed him a risk of absconding.
She ordered her to remain in detention pending her trial, which was set for July 12, 2021.
