Virginia Giuffre, one of Jeffrey Epstein's most outspoken accusers, is currently working on a book about her experience in the billionaire's trafficking ring. The currently unpublished book is tentatively titled, "The Billionaire Playboy’s Club," and it shares many details that have not yet been revealed to the public.
The manuscript for the book is included in the large batch of court documents that were recently unsealed by New York Judge Loretta Preska. According to The Mirror, the manuscript includes a story about Prince Andrew allegedly using a puppet of himself to grope her and another victim.
Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell reportedly gave Andrew his own caricature puppet from the satirical ’80s British TV show Spitting Image. Giuffre said that she was taken to visit Prince Andrew on numerous occasions.
It was easy to give them the reaction they desired, all I had to do was pretend to be entertained by their lewd gestures, and when Andrew cupped my breast with a doll made in his image, I only giggled away, she said.
This incident was corroborated by Johanna Sjoberg, one of Epstein's assistants who says that she was a victim as well. Giuffre said that Maxwell wanted to take a picture of the bizarre scene, and ordered Sjoberg to sit on his lap also.
I sat on Andrew’s lap…they took the puppet’s hands and put it on Virginia’s breast, and so Andrew put his on mine, Sjoberg testified in 2016, during the deposition in Giuffre’s case against Maxwell.
Giuffre says that she was later ordered to take the prince to the “dungeon” for an erotic massage.
Andrew has previously promised to help investigators with the case, but has since removed himself from public life. He has also refused requests for interviews that investigators have sent him. He has stepped down from his official royal position and is now more than ever the black sheep of the royal family.
After Maxwell's arrest, the prince has canceled all of his travels and business trips outside of the UK, likely out of fears that he will be arrested as well.
According to a former member of the Royal guard who worked on Andrew’s security detail, The London Metropolitan Police have destroyed evidence that could have revealed where Prince Andrew was on one of the evenings where he is accused of sexually assaulting Giuffre.
Andrew was questioned about Giuffre’s accusations during an interview with BBC, and he made numerous mistakes and fumbles that brought his credibility into question.
In the interview, Andrew vehemently denied knowing Giuffre and insisted that he was not at that nightclub on March 10th.
He claimed that he was at a Pizza Express location in Woking, for a party, but at least one other witness has come forward to corroborate Giuffre’s claim. The witness says that she distinctly remembers seeing the prince at the nightclub on that evening. There is a chance that Andrew could be legally compelled to speak with US prosecutors about the case, but the situation is unprecedented, and he seems to feel that appearing in court is beneath him.
