Prince Andrew accuser Virginia Roberts ‘fled Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein when asked to be their baby surrogate’


PRINCE Andrew accuser Virginia Roberts escaped from Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell when they asked her to carry his baby, a new book shockingly reveals.

Attorney Bradley J. Edwards, who has represented Epstein’s victims, alleges the pedo and his alleged madam Maxwell urged the sex slave to become a surrogate mum at the age of 19.

His book, ‘Relentless Pursuit‘, explains that he was 32 years old and had just launched his own law firm in Hollywood, Florida, when he was asked by a Jacksonville-based attorney “if I had heard of Jeffrey Epstein. I had not”.

He adds that the attorney had been contacted by a woman, 20, who “had [allegedly] been sexually assaulted by a powerful man in Palm Beach around six years earlier.

“It was a criminal matter, and this young woman needed an attorney.”

Edwards ended up representing Epstein’s many victims – including Virginia Roberts (now Guiffre) for more than a decade, after it became his “life mission” to get justice for them.

In his book, serialised in the Daily Mail, Edwards explains that when he first met Roberts, he asked her to give proof of some of her allegations. 

He writes: “She sent me the envelope that Maxwell had given her when they first met with directions to Epstein’s address as well as travel and hotel receipts charged to Epstein’s card. 

“Not long afterwards, Virginia showed me a photograph of herself, aged 17, wedged in between Maxwell and Andrew.”

The Prince has strongly denied having sex with Roberts in London and New York, and at an orgy on Epstein’s private island in the Virgin Islands.

The attorney describes the former sex slave as a “powerful woman who would not scare easily or be bullied by anyone”.

His book alleges that after Maxwell taught the then teen “all the skills needed to keep Epstein happy”, the billionaire’s “debauched world became too much for her”.

After being trapped in the “sex cult for over two years”, Maxwell and Epstein allegedly asked her to carry his baby, Edwards writes.

Maxwell has maintained her innocence, recently telling a pal: “I’ve done nothing wrong. Others repeating allegations about me over and over again doesn’t make any of it any more true.”

Edwards claims that Roberts was asked to carry Epstein’s baby with the intention of handing the newborn child to him.

Hoping to convince her to agree to their vile scheme, she was told that she would be looked after for the rest of her life.

Roberts apparently decided their request was the “final straw” and planned to escape their clutches.

Her chance to flee came during a trip to Thailand, where she’d flown to interview a young girl for Epstein’s sordid pastime.

After marrying an Australian she met and fell in love with in Thailand, Roberts ended up running away to Australia, where she is a mum-of-three.

She is now 36 years old.

Prince Andrew has come under renewed pressure to be interviewed by the FBI as the new book exposes the extent of his former pal Epstein’s child abuse.

Wealthy pedo Epstein hanged himself in prison last year while awaiting trial for child sex trafficking, but his victims are demanding the Duke of York answer questions about what he knew.

Roberts spent three years as Epstein’s sex slave and claims she was forced to sleep with Prince Andrew on three occasions.

The Prince has strenuously denied the allegations and told the BBC’s Emily Maitlis in an interview last year that he had never met Roberts.

Relentless Pursuit also reveals:

  • Andrew might have stayed at Epstein’s New York mansion at the same time as a woman who allegedly became the billionaire’s “chief recruiter” of girls
  • Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell were dubbed “Bonnie and Clyde” by victims
  • Epstein was abusing three girls a day at one point and he would visibly shake with sexual desire, victims have alleged

Edwards writes about Epstein: “He was an intellectually gifted sociopath with unlimited wealth who lived a virtually unconstrained life.

“The rules he – and those in his fold – lived by were his own. The problem was that his rules didn’t account for laws.

“Epstein had amassed extensive political and worldly connections. For decades, he used his tremendous fortune to sexually exploit women and girls, some as young as 14.”

The book claims Ghislaine Maxwell was a pivotal figure in Epstein’s abuse for more than a decade, allegedly helping him recruit and groom underage girls.

The whereabouts of the 58-year-old socialite, who was one of Prince Andrew’s closest friends, remain a mystery.

Maxwell’s lawyers have denied suggestions she procured girls for Epstein, who died in August.

Andrew invited Epstein and Maxwell to Windsor Castle to help celebrate his daughter Beatrice’s 18th birthday in 2006.

A year earlier, police in Florida discovered that Epstein was abusing three girls a day at his property in Palm Beach and had identified 23 underage victims.

According to the book, Maxwell kept the names of girls who were being abused by Epstein on her computer and the pair where known as “Bonnie and Clyde” by victims.

Maxwell allegedly groomed Epstein’s first underage victim in 1994, when she approached a 13-year-old girl – who was later molested and raped by Epstein – outside a summer camp in the US.

“Epstein had an unquenchable appetite for young girls, and Ghislaine had a knack for finding them,” writes Edwards.

He also alleges that the Prince might have stayed at Epstein’s New York mansion at the same time as a woman who allegedly became the billionaire’s “chief recruiter” of girls, a twenty-something Russian-born woman.

It’s claimed she was pictured leaving Epstein’s mansion during the royal’s stay in December 2010.

Edwards has now repeated his calls for the Prince to collaborate with the US authorities.

Another lawyer representing US victims, Gloria Allred, added: “Unless he agrees to speak to the FBI and provides truthful answers to their questions, the victims and law enforcement will continue to pursue him.

“I can assure him that no amount of legal armour or Palace guards will shield him from his attempts to thwart justice and the truth.’

Prince Andrew has been approached for comment.
