So shocking. The Duke of York has been named in a lawsuit that claims he repeatedly had forced relations with an underage sex slave.
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson has denied the shocking allegations, calling them “categorically untrue.” Read on for the full statement.
Prince Andrew Lawsuit: Duke Of York Accused Of Sleeping With Underage Sex Slave
A woman is claiming in a new lawsuit that American investment banker Jeffrey Epstein passed her around as a “sex slave” to his friends — including Prince Andrew — when she was just 17, according to The Independent.
The woman is one of several bringing the suit against Jeffrey, who was convicted of soliciting a minor for prostitution in 2008, and served 13 months in jail before being released in 2009.
The woman, who filed the suit anonymously, claims she was repeatedly forced to have sex with the Duke of York, among other “rich and powerful friends” of Jeffrey’s, The Independent reports.
Buckingham Palace Denies Claims Against Prince Andrew
A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said in a statement:
This relates to long-standing and ongoing civil proceedings in the United States, to which The Duke of York is not a party. As such we would not comment on the detail. However, for the avoidance of doubt, any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue.
