JEFFREY Epstein forced an underage girl to have sex with Prince Andrew to gather incriminating evidence to blackmail him, bombshell court documents claim.
According to the papers, unsealed in New York on Friday, the alleged encounter took place at Epstein’s private retreat in the US Virgin Islands.
The alleged victim, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, was reportedly told to “give the prince whatever he demanded and report back to [Epstein] on the details of the sexual abuse”.
The documents also claim that Epstein would try to “ingratiate himself with [people of influence] for business, personal, political and financial gain, as well as to obtain potential blackmail information”.
Alleged London encounter
The billionaire was said to have hosted “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders.”
One of the manuscripts also features a detailed account of an alleged sexual encounter between the duke and Ms Guiffre in London.
She claims she had sex with a mystery “prince”, a man whose name she did not know, and has previously stated that she had sex with Andrew on three separate occasions.
Prince Andrew categorically denies he had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Ms Giuffre.
However, Ms Guiffre claims that during an enounter in London’s Tramp nightclub, on an evening out with Epstein and his ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, the prince whispered “sweet nothings” into her ear and kissed her neck.
They later allegedly had a bath together at Maxwell’s home where she said he was “adorning my young body, particularly my feet, caressing my toes and licking my arches.”
