Prince’s ‘despicable’ accuser sued

World

THE woman who claimed she slept with Prince Andrew while working as a sex slave is facing a legal backlash from two other men she claimed had relations with her.

Virginia Roberts is being sued for defamation by US attorney Alan Dershowitz, who says he wants her jailed. Mr Dershowitz said Miss Roberts, 31, would have to give evidence under oath – and will perjure herself if she repeats her claims.

Miss Roberts has also been branded ‘despicable’ by model agency owner Jean Luc Brunel who said he is considering legal action of his own.

Earlier this week Judge Kenneth Marra ordered Miss Roberts’ claim that she was a ‘sex slave’ to paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, a former friend of Andrew, to be struck from the record. Amid the other ‘lurid’ allegations removed from the record were claims that she slept with the Duke of York, Mr Dershowitz and Mr Brunel.

Prince Andrew has always strongly denied the allegations against him.

Buckingham Palace has confirmed that he was informed of Judge Marra’s ruling.
