Virginia Roberts Giuffre filed a lawsuit against Queen Elizabeth’s son in Manhattan on Monday.
According to the documents, Giuffre claims Prince Andrew sexually assaulted her when she was underage in New York City after an introduction from Epstein and his right-hand woman and alleged sex trafficking co-conspirator, Ghislaine Maxwell.
Giuffre alleges she was 17 years old when the royal family member committed sexual assault and battery against her.
In the documents, she claims the alleged assault left her with severe emotional distress that she still lives with today.
She is asking for damages to be determined by the court.
As for Prince Andrew, he went on BBC's Newsnight and claimed he had “no recollection” of meeting Giuffre, despite a 2001 photo showing them together. In the picture, he's seen with his arms around Giuffre's waist as Ghislaine smirks in the background.
Prince Andrew resigned from his royal duties following the interview, almost one year after Epstein's suicide.
The disgraced businessman was found hanged in his prison cell in August 2019. He was locked up and awaiting his sex trafficking trial.
Giuffre has been vocal about her experience with Epstein and Maxwell.
Giuffre sued Epstein's alleged madam for defamation in 2015 after Ghislaine accused her of lying when she came forward alleging Maxwell and Epstein sexually abused her.
In unsealed documents released to the public in July, Giuffre said Ghislaine must have been suffering "amnesia" when she claimed under oath that she couldn't recall ever flying together on the pedophile's jet.
According to the flight log for Epstein's private plane, Maxwell traveled with Giuffre nearly 30 times. The recorded number is actually 23.
"For instance, (Maxwell) cannot even recall a single flight on Epstein's private jet with Ms Giuffre, even though flight logs show that (Maxwell) had 23 flights with Ms Giuffre while Ms Giuffre was underage," Giuffre's attorneys wrote.
Claiming Ghislaine was "malicious" in her tactics, Giuffre's attorneys continued, "Based on (Maxwell's) convenient and near-total amnesia about documented incriminating events alone, a reasonable jury could find that she acted deliberately and maliciously when she arranged for false and defamatory statements about Ms. Giuffre to be transmitted literally around the globe."
A federal judge in New York ordered the court to unseal the documents in relation to Ghislaine's upcoming sex trafficking trial.
