Ghislaine Maxwell will propose a nearly $30 million bail package in hopes of getting sprung from a Brooklyn lockup — and will finally admit she’s a married woman, according to reports.

The accused Jeffrey Epstein madam is expected to go to court in the coming days in a bid to be freed before Christmas, the Telegraph first reported.

Roughly $25 million of the hefty package will be backed by Maxwell’s rumored husband, tech CEO Scott Borgerson — whose identity the British heiress refused to reveal at an initial bail hearing over the summer.

The upcoming bail application will be the first time Maxwell will publicly acknowledge she is married, ABC News reported.

Friends told the Telegraph that Borgerson is devastated that Maxwell has remained jailed at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn since her July arrest on sex abuse charges.

Some $5 million of the bail amount will come from Maxwell’s brothers, Kevin and Ian Maxwell.

The 58-year-old daughter of disgraced media titan Robert Maxwell will request to be let out on house arrest and will agree to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet, the Telegraph said.

She will also waive her rights to seek extradition from the UK and France, where she holds citizenship in addition to the US, ABC News reported.

At the July hearing, Manhattan federal Judge Alison Nathan refused to release Maxwell on $5 million bail and home confinement after prosecutors argued that she was purposely cagey about her finances.

Maxwell’s lawyers revealed they were ready to ask for bail a second time in a Nov. 25 letter, court papers show.

They requested a closed-door hearing to keep secret the identities of the co-signers of the bond, saying “they are legitimately afraid if their identities become public, they will be subjected to the same relentless media scrutiny and threats that Ms. Maxwell has experienced for more than a year.”

Maxwell is charged in a six-count indictment with recruiting and grooming girls and young women to be sexually abused by her and Epstein. She has pleaded not guilty.

A date for her bail hearing has not yet been set.
