Now that disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein is roaming around New York again (and starring in his own episode of Law & Order: SVU!), it’s time for more of the young women who claimed to have been taken advantage of by him to come out of the woodwork and have their tales told. The latest of these lovely ladies, Virginia Roberts of Australia, has an Epstein story we’ve heard before: She claims that she was brought into Epstein’s fold at the age of 15 and taught to be an “erotic masseuse” for him and his wealthy friends. She said she was in his entourage for four years — during three of which she was under the legal age of consent in Florida, where she and Epstein lived. Roberts claims she eventually traveled to his Caribbean island a few times and was ordered to tend to his male friends, ages 40 to 60. “Basically, I was training to be a prostitute for him and his friends who shared his interest in young girls,” she told Britain’s Daily Mail.
This is pretty standard stuff from an Epstein accuser (though there’s nary a mention of Epstein’s famously egg-shaped penis), but what makes Roberts’s story different is that one of the 40- to 60-year-old men she was forced to hang out with was Prince Andrew, the son of Queen Elizabeth and brother to Prince Charles. While no sexual contact between the two is alleged, Andrew was recently photographed strolling through the park in New York with Epstein — apparently not having learned his lesson. An old photo of Andrew palling around with the underage Roberts is splattered across the Mail today.
No wonder Prince William and Kate are inviting so many people to their wedding. What with Fergie vomiting her whole life up for Oprah Winfrey’s new network, and her ex-husband, Andrew, palling around with underage massagestitutes, there’s at least safety in numbers.
