Her remark came after one Twitter user wrote that the FBI “will kill her to protect the ultra rich and well connected” following her claims that she was sexually abused by both Epstein and Prince Andrew.
“I am making it publicly known that in no way, shape or form am I suicidal. I have made this known to my therapist and GP - If something happens to me - in the sake of my family do not let this go away and help me to protect them. Too many evil people want to see me quieted,” Roberts, 36, tweeted on Tuesday, December 11.
Though she did not name any names, RadarOnline.com readers know Roberts has made headlines with her explosive claims about Epstein and Andrew, 59. Days before she came forward with her allegations about the wealthy businessman in a Dateline special, he was found dead in his prison cell; and though officials ruled his death a suicide, many insiders have suggested it was murder. Andrew, meanwhile, has denied all claims of wrongdoing, and Roberts' accusations against him were struck out by a judge in 2015 for being "immaterial and impertinent."
In a recent interview with BBC, Roberts alleged she was abused three times by Andrew — once at Epstein's New York apartment, once on a yacht in the Caribbean, and once at the Ghislaine Maxwell’s London home. Maxwell, 57, is accused of having been Epstein’s sex slave recruiter, though she’s denied all claims.
After Roberts’ exposé, the royal agreed to an interview with The BBC, during which he denied having slept with Roberts and claimed he was unaware of his friend Epstein’s wrongdoings. When asked about a 2001 photograph of him wrapping his arm around Roberts at a party with Maxwell, Andrew claimed he had no memory of it ever being taken.
After his interview, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said the Duke of York “unequivocally regrets his ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein” and “deeply sympathises with those affected who want some form of closure.” Still, Andrew chose to resign his royal duties days later, claiming that his ties to the late financier had “become a major disruption” to his family’s work. He has since moved out of Buckingham Palace, and his daughter Princess Beatrice has had to postpone her engagement party due to the scandal.
