Prince Andrew claims his sex assault accuser Virginia Giuffre is out for ‘another payday’ and accuses her of helping Ghislaine Maxwell sex traffic Epstein victims in shock motion to dismiss ‘frivolous’ 诉讼
安德鲁王子 has fired back at a woman’s ‘frivolous’ sex-assault lawsuit claiming she’s just out for a ‘payday’ in a shock motion he filed to dismiss the claims on Friday, which also accused her of helping Ghislaine Maxwell in her sex trafficking ring with Jeffrey Epstein.
维吉尼亚州 朱福尔, 38, is being slammed by the prince for her supposed false accusations that the Duke of York sexually abused her three times back in 2001 当她刚刚 17 岁 – more than two decades ago.
In court documents filed in US District Court in Manhattan today – which was the court-imposed deadline for the prince to respond to Giuffre’s suit – 安德鲁, 61, urged a US judge to dismiss her lawsuit, calling the claims ‘baseless’ in an effort to ‘achieve another payday’.
The prince also cited a damning story published in the 纽约每日新闻 在 2015 that revealed ‘Giuffre also was trained to and did, 事实上, recruit other young women into Epstein’s sex trafficking ring’.

朱福尔 (right with Andrew), one of Jeffrey Epstein’s most vocal accusers, claimed that she was forced into sex with Andrew. She has long claimed that she was a victim of his sex trafficking ring throughout the early 2000s when she was a teenager (Ghislaine Maxwell pictured right)
One of Giuffre’s ex-lovers who would drive her to Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion told the news site: ‘She was like head b****.
‘She’d have like nine or 10 girls she used to bring to him. She never looked like she was being held captive… She and the other girls would walk out of there smiling, with their little bathing suits on, like they had just come from the beach. She’d have like four grand.
‘And then I’d take them all to the mall and they’d get their nails done.’
When Giuffre was in the middle of settling a lawsuit with Epstein in March 2015 former friends even claimed that despite her accusations that the financier was keeping her as a sex slave, she was actually more of a ‘money-hungry sex kitten’ who enjoyed the lavish lifestyle.
But Giuffre has long insisted otherwise and has been one of Epstein’s most outspoken accusers, claiming that she was a victim of his sex trafficking ring throughout the early 2000s when she was a teenager.
Now she’s alleging that around the same time she was also forced into sex with Andrew at Maxwell’s London townhouse, sex pest Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion in Manhattan and one of Epstein’s private villas in the Virgin Islands.
Andrew said in response: ‘Virginia Giuffre may well be a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of Jeffrey Epstein…and nothing can excuse, nor fully capture, the abhorrence and gravity of Epstein’s monstrous behavior against Giuffre, if so.’
The prince has also accused Giuffre of helping Ghislaine Maxwell in her sex trafficking ring with Jeffrey Epstein (剩下). The motion to dismiss Giuffre’s claims cited a damning story published in the New York Daily News in 2015 that revealed ‘Giuffre also was trained to and did, 事实上, recruit other young women into Epstein’s sex trafficking ring’
他加了: '然而, and without diminishing the harm suffered as a results of Epstein’s alleged misconduct, Prince Andrew never sexually abused or assaulted Giuffre.
‘He unequivocally denies Giuffre’s false allegations against him.’
The court documents went on to point out that ‘for over a decade, Giuffre has profited from her allegations against Epstein and others by selling stories and photographs to the press and entering into secret agreements to resolve her claims against her alleged abusers, including Epstein and his ex-girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell’.
Although it is unclear how much money she received through a settlement with the Epstein Victims Compensation Fund (EVFF), the compensation was reportedly worth more than $121million.
‘Epstein’s abuse of Giuffre does not justify her public campaign against Prince Andrew,’ the motion read, adding that her ‘pattern of filing a series of lawsuits against numerous high-profile individuals should no longer be tolerated, as it continues to irreparably harm many innocent people’.
‘Most people could only dream of obtaining the sums of money that Giuffre has secured for herself over the years,’ Andrew claimed, noting that the money could serve as a ‘compelling motive for Giuffre to continue filing frivolous lawsuits against individuals such as Prince Andrew’.
The court documents also said that Giueffre has created ‘a media frenzy’ in the press, which has led ‘sensationalism and innuendo (至) prevail over truth’.
安德鲁 – the ninth in line for the British throne – was served the lawsuit back in August 27 at the Royal Lodge in Windsor. Giuffre’s lawyer David Boies filed the case under New York’s Child Victims Act.

她面对 80 years if convicted of the charges, which she has consistently denied. According to Andrew’s motion in September 2015, when Giuffre sued Maxwell for defamation, ‘Maxwell denied Giuffre’s allegations against her and publicly stated that Giuffre was not a credible source or an honest person’.
‘The parties reached a settlement in 2017, pursuant to which Giuffre purportedly received millions of dollars,’ 他加了.
In a further effort to dismiss Giuffre’s claims the court documents went on to point out that ‘inexplicably,’ she has not mentioned ‘when she was purportedly sexually abused by Prince Andrew in New York; specifically what Prince Andrew supposedly did to her there; or specifically where the alleged abuse supposedly occurred’.
它添加了: ‘Critically, even if her allegations were plausible, Giuffre concedes she was 17 years old at the time of the alleged abuse, and thus over the age of consent under New York law.’
