Ghislaine Maxwell accused Prince Andrew of visiting the island owned by the late billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in bombshell court documents that were unsealed on Tuesday.
Andrew Accused Of Visiting Epstein’s Island
The Messenger reported that Maxwell claimed in a 2016 deposition that Andrew visited the Little St. James property owned by Epstein at least once. In the documents, Maxwell was asked by her lawyer, “Did Prince Andrew ever tell you that he had sex with Virginia Roberts?” and “Did Jeffrey Epstein ever tell you that Prince Andrew had sex with Virginia Roberts?”
Maxwell, who was convicted in 2021 of five counts related to the crimes she allegedly committed as Epstein’s longtime madam, answered “no” to both questions.
“Did Prince Andrew ever visit that island — are you aware of Prince Andrew ever visiting Jeffrey’s island?” Maxwell was then asked, to which she responded: “I am aware of that, yes.”
Maxwell went on to testify that while she did not know how many times Andrew visited the island, she was present on at least one occasion that he was there.
“There were no girls on the island at all. No girls, no women, other than the staff who work at the house,” she testified. “Girls meaning — I assume you are asking underage, but there was nobody female outside of the cooks and the cleaners.”
Andrew’s Alleged Puppet Fetish Exposed
This comes after Andrew’s name came up repeatedly earlier this month in unsealed documents that listed over 150 names of Epstein associates. In one of the documents, Epstein accuser Johanna Sjoberg talked about allegedly meeting Epstein years ago with her fellow “victim” Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
“At one point, Ghislaine told me to come upstairs, and we went into a closet and pulled out the puppet, the caricature of Prince Andrew, and brought it down,” she claimed, according to The Messenger. “And there was a little tag on the puppet that said ‘Prince Andrew’ on it, and that’s when I knew who he was.”
“It looked like him,” Sjoberg continued. “And she brought it down and presented it to him; and that was a great joke, because apparently it was a production from a show on BBC. And they decided to take a picture with it, in which Virginia and Andrew sat on a couch. They put the puppet on Virginia’s lap, and I sat on Andrew’s lap, and they put the puppet’s hand on Virginia’s breast, and Andrew put his hand on my breast, and they took a photo.”
Giuffre’s Claims Against Andrew
Newsweek reported that in a court filing against Andrew, Giuffre’s lawyers claimed, “During each of the aforementioned incidents, [Giuffre] was compelled by express or implied threats by Epstein, Maxwell, and/or Prince Andrew to engage in sexual acts with Prince Andrew, and feared death or physical injury to herself or another and other repercussions for disobeying Epstein, Maxwell, and Prince Andrew due to their powerful connections, wealth, and authority.”
At the time of this writing, Andrew has never been charged in connection with Epstein’s crimes, though he did resign from his public roles in May of 2020. What do you think about this? Let us know in the comments section.
