Another Jeffrey Epstein victim has claimed that she had sex with Prince Andrew.
According to The Mirror, the second woman, who has not been named, has communicated with lawyers who are representing Jeffrey Epstein’s other alleged victims.
The news comes after the Duke of York came under fire last month, when he finally addressed his relationship with the disgraced financier during a controversial interview with Newsnight.
During the interview, Andrew also denied having a sexual relationship with Virginia Roberts Giuffre when she was 17 back in 2001.
Despite his denial, the way Prince Andrew answered the interviewer’s questions sparked serious backlash – and he’s been forced to step down from royal duties.
In response to the new claims against Prince Andrew, a palace spokeswoman said the allegations are “not something we would comment on.”
Earlier this week, it was reported that the Duke’s father, Prince Philip, ordered him to take a step back from royal duties amid the controversy following a tense meeting with him and Prince Charles.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre is just one of the women who has claimed that she was “trafficked” by Jeffrey Epstein.
Speaking to NBC’s Dateline last month, Virginia alleged that Jeffrey directed her to have sex with a number of powerful men – including the Duke of York.
Virginia was allegedly recruited by the disgraced financier’s former lover, Ghislaine Maxwell, when she was just a teenager.
She claimed: “The first time in London, I was so young. Ghislaine woke me up in the morning and said, ‘You’re going to meet a Prince today.’”
“I didn’t know at that point that I was going to be trafficked to a Prince. And then that night Prince Andrew came to her house, in London.”
“We went out to club Tramp. Prince Andrew got me alcohol, it was in the VIP section, I’m pretty sure it was vodka. Prince Andrew was like ‘let’s dance together’ and I was like ‘okay’. ”
“And we leave Club Tramp with Ghislaine, and Jeffrey and Ghislaine said he’s coming back to the house and I want you to do for him what you do for Epstein,” she alleged.
“I couldn’t believe it. He wasn’t rude about it. He said thank you and some kind of soft sentiments like that and left. I just couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe that even royalty were involved.”
