Prince Andrew Has Settled His Lawsuit With Virginia Giuffre

February 15, 2022 / Posted by:

Well well whhhhhhhell, if it isn’t the man who swore he was going to take these sexual assault allegations straight to trial, and swear on a stack of bibles that he is the most not-guilty man who has ever been accused of heinous sex crimes. NBC News reports that a filing was made earlier today which states that it looks like Prince Andrew has gone ahead and bought his freedom in the form of a check made out of Virginia Giuffre, one of the many sex trafficking victims of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, who has accused Prince Andrew of having sex with her three times when she was allegedly seventeen years old and was suing Prince Andrew of as much. Honestly, the most shocking part of this story is that Andrew was able to find enough money between the cushions in his couch.

NBC News says that it should be only a matter of time before the lawsuit is officially dismissed. But as of right now, we know that Virginia Giuffre’s lawyer submitted documents to the judge handling this case, Judge Lewis Kaplan, confirming that Andrew has indeed settled this situation to make it all go away. Virginia filed her lawsuit back in August 2021, which Andrew deftly dodged for a while until he finally accepted it over a month later. And since then, he’s done pretty much everything in his power, and he’s got a lot of power (see: his mom), to get that lawsuit tossed. Andrew tried victim-blaming and tried claiming that Virginia wasn’t technically underage. None of that worked, and last month, Judge Kaplan approved the lawsuit to go to trial later this year. But, that trial isn’t going to happen, thanks to Andy’s ability to write a check. via NBC News:

The settlement will spare Andrew further ignominy from being forced to answer questions under oath for depositions in the case, and face a public trial in New York that would have drawn massive media attention.

The deal comes less than two months after Maxwell was convicted in the same courthouse of procuring other underage girls to be sexually abused by Epstein, an investment manager who killed himself in a federal jail in 2019 while awaiting trial on federal child sex trafficking charges.

The tentative settlement was disclosed in a letter by Giuffre’s lawyer to Judge Lewis Kaplan to dismiss the suit, who is expected to dismiss the suit after both sides file a formal stipulation that they want to end the case.

The exact amount in the settlement is not known, as it wasn’t disclosed in the filing. But we do know that Prince Andrew has promised to make “a substantial donation to Ms. Giuffre’s charity in support of victims’ rights.” Virginia Giuffre is the founder of SOAR, or Speak Out, Act, Reclaim, which is a non-profit aimed at advocating for victims of sex trafficking. Here’s Prince Andrew’s official statement, where he lays on the “Sudden supporter of sex trafficking victims” shtick by saying he “commends the bravery” of Virginia. Hmmm…bravery for what again? Specifically. Sorry Andrew, lean a little closer into the microphone when you answer that question.

As I mentioned above, Prince Andrew seemed so sure this lawsuit was bullshit. So what happened? Suddenly Prince Andrew didn’t want to take this whole thing to trial? Weird! He must have had a totally random, out of the blue change of heart. You know what, I bet he decided to settle out of concern for the jury. That poor jury shouldn’t have to suffer through the discomfort of watching Kevin Spacey’s weird, unsettlingly creepy testimony.
