Prince Andrew and Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre signs memoir deal worth ‘millions’


Virginia Giuffre has reportedly signed a deal to release a memoir one year after agreeing to a settlement with Prince Andrew.

She agreed to a multi-million-pound settlement with Prince Andrew in her lawsuit against him and signed a one-year agreement that neither of them would publicly discuss the case or settlement details, according to the New York Post.

Now, one year later, sources tell the paper she has signed a book deal worth “millions”.

It is believed that the memoir will be a vessel for her to convey the allegations against Epstein. It remains unclear if Giuffre’s memoir will include details surrounding the settlement she reached with Andrew.

Pages from a document — referred to as Giuffre’s “memoir” — were first unsealed in August 2019 amid court records related to her lawsuit against now-convicted sex trafficker, Ghislaine Maxwell.

The 139-page expose, entitled “The Billionaire’s Playboy Club,” included details about Giuffre’s life as a teenager inside Epstein’s alleged sex ring, where she claimed she was forced to have sex with Epstein and Maxwell on command.

In February, Andrew reached an out-of-court settlement with Ms Giuffre to avoid a civil court case.

Ms Giuffre had been suing the Duke, claiming he sexually assaulted her on three occasions when she was 17. Andrew has repeatedly denied the allegations and the undisclosed sum was not an admission of liability.

It comes after Andrew’s lawyers are reportedly looking to overturn the settlement with Ms Giuffre, which he paid in February 2022, partly funded by the sale of his $22 million Swiss chalet.

We can reveal the Duke of York is consulting US lawyers Andrew Brettler and Blair Berk and hopes to force a retraction or even an apology — which may clear the way for a return to royal duties, the paper reported.

Representatives for both Andrew and Giuffre have remained tight-lipped about the alleged plan to overturn the case but legal sources have stressed that it would be challenging for Andrew to pursue.

Mr Collins, a partner at city law firm Hugh James Solicitors, told “As for the suggestion that settlement monies would have to be paid back I simply do not know, but we have to remember an agreement was entered into, and the parties are bound by it.

“It would be extraordinary in my experience if such a case would be brought.

“Regardless of what one’s opinion may be of the whole saga such a case would be an attempt, in reality, to drive a coach and horses through all that courts in the US have heard.

“I cannot see that happening.”

He added: “They concluded a deal. It would be extraordinary for all that to be undone. I’m not saying it is impossible but it would be extraordinary.”
