Recently unsealed documents have revealed that Prince Andrew spent "weeks" at Jeffrey Epstein's Florida home and received "daily massages," according to a former employee of Epstein's. Juan Alessi, who managed Epstein's home, stated in a 2009 deposition that the British royal stayed in the guest room for extended periods and would receive massages daily. Alessi also mentioned that Prince Andrew's former wife, Sarah Ferguson, had briefly visited the house but that the prince spent significant time there.
These revelations were made as part of an ongoing lawsuit between Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre and Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's alleged accomplice in sex trafficking. Giuffre has claimed that she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17, an accusation that he has denied. Prince Andrew has denied any wrongdoing and has expressed regret for his association with Epstein.
The newly unsealed documents also include allegations from an unnamed accuser, believed to be Giuffre, who claims to have had sexual relations with Prince Andrew twice, once in Maxwell's London flat and another time in an "orgy" with underage girls on Epstein's private resort in the US Virgin Islands.
In response to the unsealed documents, British newspaper The Telegraph reported that King Charles is preparing to withdraw private funding for security operations at Prince Andrew's home. However, the Palace has not made an official comment on the matter.
It is important to note that being mentioned in the unsealed documents does not imply any wrongdoing, as the court papers released so far do not reveal any major new allegations about Epstein or his associates. The names mentioned include victims, law enforcement officials, Epstein's household staff, as well as friends and family.
These revelations have sparked renewed interest in the Epstein case, with more than 200 names being mentioned in the unsealed documents, including former President Bill Clinton. However, it is essential to approach these claims with caution and await further developments in the ongoing lawsuit.
