‘I will not be bullied into silence’: Woman who claims Prince Andrew abused her while she was billionaire’s ‘underage sex slave’ says she is being ‘unjustly victimised’
- Court motion in U.S. brought in relation to millionaire Jeffrey Epstein
- Epstein, a former friend of the Prince, was convicted of sex crime in 2008
- Court papers in motion claim woman had sex with Andrew three times
- They claim meetings took place in London, New York and US Virgin Islands
- One meeting was ‘an orgy with numerous under-aged girls’ it is claimed
- It is said the woman was approached by socialite Ghislaine Maxwell
- She is the daughter of the late former media mogul, Robert Maxwell
- Papers also allege the Prince lobbied US government over Epstein case
- The royal has issued a strong denial of the ‘categorically untrue’ claims
A woman who claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew on three separate occasions – including at an orgy – has said that she will ‘not be bullied back into silence’ and ‘victimised’.
‘Jane Doe 3’ alleges that she was loaned out to Prince Andrew and other friends by Jeffrey Epstein, an American billionaire who has been convicted of soliciting underage prostitution.
She is said to have been 17 at the time of the alleged meetings, meaning she was underage according to Florida law.
In court documents she accuses Epstein, the Prince, his friend the socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, and – among others – the leading American defence lawyer Alan Dershowitz of abusing her when she was underage.
Her lawyers, who are also representing another woman, ‘Jane Doe 4’, also told an American court that Prince Andrew had lobbied the US government over Epstein’s case.
The Prince today issued a comprehensive denial of the allegations, with Buckingham Palace insisting any suggestion of underage sex on his part is ‘categorically untrue’.

The royal and Epstein were friends and were seen together in Central Park, New York in 2011 after the financier’s conviction, which came in the wake of an FBI investigation into his associations with underage girls, especially in Florida, where he maintains a home.
‘Jane Doe 3’, who is now an adult, claims that she was groomed on behalf of Epstein by Maxwell – daughter of Robert Maxwell, the disgraced newspaper owner – when she was just 15 and forced into a world of sexual abuse.
It included being ‘forced to have sexual relations with… Prince [Andrew] when she was a minor in London at Ghislaine Maxwell’s apartment, in New York, and on Epstein’s private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands in an orgy with numerous other under-aged girls’, she claimed in documents submitted this week to federal court in Palm Beach, Florida.
Her claims were denounced yesterday as an attempt to make money by Dershowitz, who was part of O.J Simpson’s ‘dream team’ defence and is a professor of law at Harvard.
He told the Guardian, for whom he has written in the past: ‘It is a totally fabricated charge in every possible way. It just never happened.’
He added: ‘This person has made this up out of cloth, maliciously and knowingly in order to extort money from Mr Epstein.’
But Dershowitz was accused by the woman of trying to ‘silence’ her.
‘I am looking forward to vindicating my rights as an innocent victim and pursuing all available recourse,’ she said.
‘It appears that I am now being unjustly victimized again. These types of aggressive attacks on me are exactly the reason why sexual abuse victims typically remain silent and the reason why I did for a long time.
The court documents claim Ghislaine Maxwell (picture left and right, with Epstein), the daughter of Robert Maxwell, used her contacts to connect powerful people with Epstein and approached the woman in the case
‘That trend should change. I’m not going to be bullied back into silence.’
The allegation that Prince Andrew lobbied the US government was made in the same document.
It demands that the American government be ordered by the federal court to hand over correspondence which the women’s lawyers claim will show Prince Andrew and Dershowitz lobbied against Epstein being prosecuted.
The lawyers say the order they want the court to grant ‘documents regarding Epstein’s lobbying efforts to persuade the Government to give him a more favorable plea arrangement and/or non-prosecution agreement, including efforts on his behalf by Prince Andrew and former Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz’.
A spokesman for Prince Andrew said: ‘This relates to long-standing and ongoing civil proceedings in the United States, to which The Duke of York is not a party.
‘As such we would not comment on the detail. However, for the avoidance of doubt, any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue’.
The spokesman said that this statement also applied to the allegation that Prince Andrew lobbied the US government.
As part of the latest court motion, documents have been filed in which the woman alleges she slept with Andrew at three locations; London, New York and the US Virgin Islands.
The woman involved in the case is said to have been 17 at the time of the alleged meetings, meaning she was underage according to the law in Florida.
She claims she was drawn into ‘sex trafficking scheme’ by Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of late media mogul Robert Maxwell.
The court documents say that in 1999 ‘Jane Doe #3 was approached by Ghislaine Maxwell, one of the main women whom Epstein used to procure under-aged girls for sexual activities and a primary co-conspirator in his sexual abuse and sex trafficking scheme’.
According to the documents filed in Florida, Maxwell had ‘persuaded’ the alleged victim, then 15, to visit Epstein’s mansion.
The girl was asked to give Epstein a massage, which ‘Epstein and Maxwell turned it into a sexual encounter, as they had done with many other victims’, it is alleged.
The woman’s legal team say convicted sex offender Epstein became ‘enamoured’ with the girl and ‘with the assistance of Maxwell converted her into a sex slave’.
It is claimed Epstein abused the girl between 1999 to 2002 on his private jets, in New York, New Mexico, and on the U.S. Virgin Islands.
It is alleged that Maxwell used her connections with the rich and powerful and connected them with Epstein.
The document says: ‘For instance, one such powerful individual Epstein forced Jane Doe #3 to have sexual relations with was a member of the British Royal Family, Prince Andrew.
‘Jane Doe #3 was forced to have sexual relations with this Prince when she was a minor in London at Ghislaine Maxwell’s apartment, in New York, and on Epstein’s private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands in an orgy with numerous other under-aged girls’.
It is claimed that Epstein told the girl to ‘give the Prince whatever he demanded and required’ and she would ‘report back to him on the details of the sexual abuse’.
The document says: ‘Maxwell facilitated Prince Andrew’s acts of sexual abuse by acting as a ‘madame’ for Epstein, thereby assisting in internationally trafficking Jane Doe #3 and numerous other young girls for sexual purposes’.
It is claimed that Epstein trafficked the girl to be abused by powerful men across the globe.
These included ‘numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known Prime Minister, and other world leaders’, the court papers say.

The court documents refer to alleged meetings at Jeffrey Epstein’s house in the U.S. Virgin Islands
It is alleged that in each case Epstein demanded she ‘describe the events that she had with these men so that he could potentially blackmail them’.
‘Epstein’s purposes in “lending” Jane Doe (along with other young girls) to such powerful people were to ingratiate himself with them for business, personal, political, and financial gain, as well as to obtain potential blackmail information’.
Mr Epstein’s lawyer Jack Goldberger said the allegations were ‘old and salacious and had ‘been consistently proven to have no merit’.
He said: ‘Mr Epstein is used to these spurious, untruthful allegations being made so he takes it in his stride. He knows there’s no truth in them’.
Asked why Prince Andrew had been dragged into the lawsuit, Mr Goldberger said: ‘I think it’s just an attempt to add spice to these unproven and unprovable allegations. There just no truth to it’.
The woman has also made similar allegations against Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz and French model scout Jean Luc Brunel.
Mr Brunel is accused of bringing young girls as ‘young as twelve’ to America for sexual purposes and to ‘farm them out to his friends’, including Epstein.
It is alleged that Mr Brunel, a close friend and travel companion of Epstein, would offer the girls, many said to be from poor countries and deprived backgrounds, modelling jobs.
‘He lured them in with a promise of making good money’, the documents claim.
It is alleged that Prof Dershowitz, who also represented Epstein, is said to have abused the girl on a number of occasions and was ‘an eye-witness to the sexual abuse of many other minors by Epstein and co-conspirators’.
Prof Dershowitz told the Politico website: ‘It’s totally, unequivocally and completely false’.
Epstein was suspected nearly a decade ago of paying for sex with dozens of underage girls.
The FBI ultimately dropped its investigation, and he pleaded guilty to a single offence and served more than a year in jail.
The investigation into Epstein’s exploits came when a woman in Palm Beach contacted police saying that her 14-year-old daughter had been paid $300 to massage him and then have sex.
The claim prompted a nearly year-long investigation that led to the eventual charge of soliciting prostitution which came as part of a plea deal. He spent 13 months of a 18-month sentence in jail and remains a registered sex offender.
The latest legal issue refers to the terms of the deal Epstein is believed to have struck with US prosecutors.
Ghislaine Maxwell was unavailable for comment this afternoon.
She has previously made clear she was not connected to the criminal proceedings against Epstein and said that his cimes were committed long before she had dealings with him.
Prince Andrew met Epstein, who was born in working-class Brooklyn, during the royal’s trips to the US.
It has previously been reported that they were introduced by Ms Maxwell over a decade ago.
The Prince is said to have enjoyed the atmosphere among America’s elite and was seen in New York and Florida, both places where Epstein owns property.
Epstein was in turn invited to Britain and, along with Ms Maxwell, was pictured on a pheasant shoot on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate in 2000.

Part of the court document filed, pictured above, demands that the American government be ordered by the federal court to hand over correspondence which the women’s lawyers claim will show Prince Andrew and Dershowitz lobbied against Epstein being prosecuted
After Epstein’s conviction in 2008, the Prince remained friends with Epstein and they were seen walking together in a New York park in 2011.
The pre-Christmas trip was said to be the first time the duke had seen Epstein in four years. But they were still close friends and would speak on the phone regularly.
The scandal caused by the photograph of the pair together after Epstein’s release from jail was one of the factors that led to Andrew stepping down from his role as UK trade envoy in 2011.
His position had been made worse when his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson revealed she had accepted £15,000 from Epstein to help pay off her debts.
HOW GIRL WHO SAYS SHE SAT ON PRINCE ANDREW’S KNEE AND ALLOWED HIM TO TOUCH HER BREAST REVEALED EPSTEIN’S SLEAZY WORLD
Johanna Sjoberg claims she had met the Duke of York over Easter 2001 where she sat on his lap and allowed him to touch her breast
One of Jeffrey Epstein’s young personal masseuses claimed she sat on Prince Andrew’s knee and allowed him to put his hand on her breast for a jokey photograph.
Johanna Sjoberg had met the Duke of York over Easter 2001 at Epstein’s seven-storey townhouse in New York, where she was paid to answer the phones, serve drinks and later carry out massages.
She said: ‘Prince Andrew was there. Andrew was very charming. I didn’t know exactly who he was but felt that I knew him’.
She was was with another girl, Virginia Roberts, and as a gift she said that the Duke of York was given a Spitting Image puppet by Epstein, and the girls were invited to sit on Andrew’s lap.
She said: ‘We had a picture taken. Virginia, another girl there, sat on a chair and had the puppet on her lap. Andrew sat on another chair, I sat on his lap – and he put his hand on my breast.
‘Ghislaine (Maxwell) put the puppet’s hand on Virginia’s breast, then Andrew put his hand on mine. It was a great joke’.
She said she witnessed Epstein ordering ‘girls’ to be dispatched thousands of miles to his friends, who were nearly always incredibly rich, powerful
On one occasion she recounted an incident in Palm Beach in 2004 or 2005 in which she overheard the disgraced financier instructing an assistant to sort out two girls for a friend.
Miss Sjoberg would not identify the friend but said he was someone ‘very famous’ in the beauty industry.
‘The conversation went: ‘So-and-so’s in Hawaii, can we find some girls for him’,’ she said.
‘I didn’t realise Jeffrey even knew this person but the thing that shocked me most was that it seemed so normal for him to ask someone to find a couple of girls and send them over.’
Miss Sjoberg worked for Epstein for four years, often massaging him as he lay on a couch in his giant bathroom making phone calls to friends such as Bill Clinton and Cate Blanchett.
He kept a little black book, containing the numbers of all his masseuses by a phone in the bathroom, she said. She left after he started becoming ‘more aggressive’ in his demands that she ‘do sexual things to him’.
She said she was aware that the girls recruited by Epstein and his acolytes were not paid just for massages but for ‘sexual favours’.
Virginia Roberts revealed that as a 17-year-old ‘erotic masseuse’, she was flown by Epstein to London to meet Prince Andrew,
Miss Sjoberg said: ‘I’m not surprised he was sending girls abroad. I just did not think they were so young.’
The Prince has insisted that any suggestion of wrongdoing on his part is ‘categorically untrue’.
A spokesman for the royal said: ‘This relates to long-standing and ongoing civil proceedings in the United States, to which The Duke of York is not a party.
‘As such we would not comment on the detail. However, for the avoidance of doubt, any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue’.
How one of the best-connected men in the U.S. was jailed amid shocking claims of sex abuse
By Daniel Bates in New York for MailOnline
The scandal of Jeffrey Epstein brought down one of the world’s richest and most powerful men – and damaged anyone who was close to him.
The billionaire financier spent 13 months in jail in 2008 for soliciting girls for underage prostitution but multiples lawsuits by his alleged victims say that the abuse at his Florida mansion was far more widespread and systematic.
Some 40 women came forward claiming that he or others molested them – with all the cases being settled out of court without any admission of liability.
The abuse as laid out in court documents was shocking.
Among the allegations was that for his birthday one year Epstein was presented with three 12-year-old girls from France for his sexual pleasure.
Jeffrey Epstein, pictured in New York with Woody Allen, was once one of the best-connected men in America
Alleged victims said they had to give ‘massages’ to Epstein, 61, and told how he loaned them out to wealthy friends so they could abuse them.
Prince Andrew was caught up in the scandal when he remained friends with Epstein even after he was released from jail and became a registered sex offender.
When the two men were photographed together in New York’s Central Park in 2011 Andrew was forced to step down from his role as Britain’s trade envoy because of the uproar.
The Prince was also photographed with Virginia Roberts, one of the girls Epstein is said to have used as an underage sex slave, who gave an interview in which she described her alleged ordeal.
Epstein was jailed after a legal case which rocked America and in which President Bill Clinton was named
Bill Clinton was also named dozens of times in lawsuits against Epstein and was alleged to have flown on his private jet more than 10 times.
Flight logs in lawsuits detailed that between 2002 and 2005 the former US President traveled around the world courtesy of his friend and stopped at Epstein’s Caribbean island Little St James where young girls were supposedly kept as sex slaves.
Clinton was deemed to be so close to Epstein that he was nearly deposed during the investigation into his paedophilia.
Before he was jailed Epstein’s other acquaintances are said to have been former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak; former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson; and former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers.
The latest developments are part of a case against US authorities brought by two of Epstein’s alleged victims who were 13 and 14 when they say the abuse occurred.
They claim that his original sentence was too light because his lawyers had secretly reached a non-prosecution agreement months earlier with the US Justice Department.
The women say the failure to disclose the deal violated the Crime Victims’ Rights Act of 2004 and that Epstein’s sentence should be thrown out, exposing him to a much harsher punishment.
Epstein, who has a $2 billion from hedge funds, continues to lead a luxury lifestyle and is now based in the US Virgin Islands.
GIRL WAS RECRUITED AS EPSTEIN’S MASSEUSE AT 15 AND WAS FLOWN ACROSS THE WORLD TO MEET PRINCE ANDREW
Virginia Roberts said she was recruited as Epstein’s masseuse when she was just 15 and paid $200 a time for an ‘erotic massage’ for him and his friends. She claimed she later became the billionaire’s sex slave.
Now a married mother of three living in Australia, Virginia alleged that her services were offered to a number of politicians, businessmen and international statesmen.
She also met Prince Andrew. The first time was at the London house of Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the disgraced former media tycoon Robert Maxwell.
This picture, said to have been taken by Epstein during Andrew’s first encounter with Virginia Roberts in March 2001, shows the Prince with his arm around her waist
The second time was at Epstein’s grand New York townhouse and the third on Epstein’s private Caribbean island.
It was reported that she was flown across the world to be introduced to the Prince. On one of those occasions Virginia Roberts was subsequently paid $15,000 (£9,400).
One picture, said to have been taken by Epstein during Andrew’s first encounter with the girl in March 2001, shows the Prince with his arm around her waist.
Describing what happened she said Epstein invited her to accompany him on a six-week trip.
‘He said we’d be going to Europe and North Africa to meet architects and interior decorators because he wanted to redo his New Mexico house. I threw my arms around him and gave him a peck on the cheek.’
They flew to Paris, then Spain, then Tangier and finally, they went to London.
‘After we landed, we drove straight to Ghislaine’s Maxwell’s house’ and ‘was given a small upstairs bedroom,’ Virginia said.
She said: ‘The following morning, Ghislaine came in. She was chirpy and jumped on the bed saying, ‘Get up, sleepyhead. You’ve got a big day. We’ve got to go shopping. You need a dress as you’re going to dance with a Prince tonight.’
‘She said I needed to be ‘smiley’ and bubbly because he was the Queen’s son.
‘Ghislaine and I went to Burberry, where she bought me a £5,000 bag, and to a few other designer stores where we bought a couple of dresses, a pair of embroidered jeans and a pink singlet, perfume and make-up,’ she said.
‘We got back to Ghislaine’s house at around 4pm and I ran straight upstairs to shower and dress.
‘When I went downstairs, Ghislaine and Jeffrey were in the lounge. There was a knock at the door. Ghislaine led Andrew in and we kissed each other on the cheek.
‘Ghislaine served tea from a porcelain pot and biscuits. She knew Sarah Ferguson and they talked fondly about Andrew’s daughters.
‘Then Ghislaine asked Andrew how old he thought I was and he guessed 17’.

The four of them went out to dinner and on to Tramp nightclub where, she says, Andrew danced with her.
‘After about an hour-and-a-half, we drove back to Ghislaine’s. All of us went upstairs and I asked Jeffrey to snap a picture of me with the Prince. I wanted something to show my Mom. Ghislaine and Jeffrey left us after that, and later Andrew left’.
Her shocking account of her four years as Epstein’s personal masseuse is supported by court documents, an eyewitness, photographs and flight details of Epstein’s private jets.
Virginia, who has undergone counselling to try to come to terms with her past, is honest about her initiation into Epstein’s depraved world.
After she said she was groomed she claims he guaranteed her a minimum of $200 each time she gave him what he called an ‘erotic massage.’
Virginia said: ‘I would always receive the money immediately. He would give me the cash from a wad he carried in a black duffel bag or an assistant paid me’.
And, because of the way Epstein had warped her sensibilities, every time she took the cash, Virginia said she felt even more indebted to him. Secretly, he was also preparing her for an even more disturbing role.
She said: ‘Epstein had trained me to do whatever men wanted. I told myself I was special
‘Basically, I was training to be a prostitute for him and his friends who shared his interest in young girls,’ she says: ‘After about two years, he started to ask me to ‘entertain’ his friends.’
It started when Epstein called Virginia at the Palm Beach apartment he had rented for her.
She recalls: ‘He said, ‘I’ve got a good friend and I need you to fly to the island to entertain him, massage him and make him feel how you make me feel.’
He didn’t spell out what I had to do. He didn’t have to. ‘He’d trained me to do whatever a man wanted. I was shocked but I told myself he was sharing me around because he trusted me and I was special.
‘I was worried, but I would do anything to keep Jeffrey happy and to keep my place as his number one girl’.
The Oxford-educated daughter of disgraced British tycoon who ‘introduced Epstein to Prince Andrew’
Educated at Marlborough School and Balliol College, Oxford, Ms Maxwell was taken under Epstein’s wing in New York after her father Robert’s death in 1991.
His body was found floating in the sea after he fell from the luxury yacht named after his daughter, the Lady Ghislaine.
His death revealed a vast financial black hole at the heart of his Mirror Group, including the employees’ pension scheme.
Ghislaine Maxwell, left, with her parents, Robert and Elizabeth, in 1987 – four years before Robert’s death
As police untangled the complicated web of alleged fraud in his companies and a series of criminal trials was launched to try to track down missing money, there remained persistent rumours that his family had salted away large sums to fund lives of continuing luxury.
The Maxwell name became tainted at home in Britain as fraud trials, bankruptcy and disgrace swirled around the family.
But in Manhattan, Ghislaine set up home ‘in a one-bedroom apartment. She was young, good-looking and charming — the quintessential New York girl about town’.
Well-connected and charismatic, Ms Maxwell (pictured last year), established herself as a leading New York socialite after moving to Manhattan
There, she met Epstein and was photographed as his ‘celebrity guest’ at social functions. The pair would soon become inseparable.
Ghislaine, who turned 30 around the time they met, became Epstein’s girlfriend and then his Girl Friday. Their early romance petered out because he wanted to see other women.
Bankrolled by the billionaire, she established herself as a leading New York socialite and repaid the favour by putting Epstein in touch with her own well-heeled friends in Britain.
She was also allegedly involved in the recruiting of young women who worked as masseuses for Epstein.
In 1998, Ms Maxwell allegedly recruited 15-year-old Virginia Roberts.
Miss Roberts has said she spent the next four years supplying Epstein with sexual favours, and was flown to various locations to service different men, including one head of state.
But she also provided him with an entry into British society – including the friendship with Prince Andrew. She is understood to have introduced the pair in 2000.
Between 2000 and 2001, Andrew and Ghislaine were together on no fewer than eight occasions.
Epstein was present at four of the meetings – at the Mar-a-Lago club in Florida (from where Virginia was recruited), in Phuket, and two occasions in Britain.
The first was a June engagement at Windsor Castle to celebrate the Queen’s birthday, the second a weekend house party at Sandringham six months later which the prince arranged to celebrate Miss Maxwell’s 39th birthday.
In addition, Andrew has often been seen at Epstein’s grand New York townhouse.
In between, Ms Maxwell took the royal to an infamous ‘hookers and pimps’ party at a New York nightclub hosted by the former lingerie model Heidi Klum in a black latex S&M outfit.
A spokesman for Ghislaine Maxwell has previously said that she has never been contacted by any police force or other law enforcement agency in connection with any allegations made against Jeffery Epstein.
Here are the full court papers filed in the Southern District Court of Florida:
“In 1999, Jane Doe#3 was approached by Ghislaine Maxwell, one of the
main women whom Epstein used to procure under-aged girls for sexual activities
and a primary co-conspirator in his sexual abuse and sex trafficking scheme. In fact, it became known to the government that Maxwell herself regularly participated in Epstein’s sexual exploitation of minors, including Jane Doe #3 Maxwell persuaded Jane Doe #3 (who was then fifteen years old) to come to Epstein’s mansion in a fashion very similar to the manner in which Epstein and his other co-conspirators coerced dozens of other children (including Jane Doe #1 and Jane Doe #2). When Jane Doe#3 began giving Epstein a “massage,” Epstein and Maxwell turned it into a sexual encounter, as they had done with many other victims” (Jane_Doe_1_and_Jane_Doe_2_v_United_States).
A former Buckingham Palace butler has been unmasked as a sexual predator who ran a paedophile ring while serving the Royal Family.
Bachelor Paul Kidd, 55, groomed at least one of his teenage victims for sex by taking him for tea with the Queen Mother at Clarence House, it has emerged.
To the public, he had been the urbane gent who waited on the Royals for nine years – first the Queen at the Palace and then her mother.
He often publicly gushed about his blue blood employers talking of the Queen as ‘courteous and genuinely caring.’
Former Royal butler Paul Kidd has admitted 29 sex charges involving three boys
But behind the facade, Kidd was leading a secret double life as a serial child abuser who molested a string of boys over a 30 year period.
He was finally exposed after one of his victims read a newspaper article in which he boasted about his links to the Royals and talked fondly of Princess Diana and her musical tastes.
Police raided his two bedroom home in St Johns Street, Stalybridge, where they found almost 19,000 pornographic pictures and videos of children.
Included in the haul were some nude pictures of a teenager who officers were able to trace and interview.
Some images were hidden in a safe while others were encrypted on his computer.
Kidd admitted 29 sex charges involving three boys namely indecent assault, sexual activity with a child and the possessing and making of indecent images of children between December 1974 and January 2008.
An accomplice David Hobday, 56, of St Johns Street, Dukinfield admitted seven charges involving one of the victims of sexual activity with a child and possessing indecent images. Both men face a maximum 14 years in jail.
A police source said: ‘Kidd was a very accomplished groomer of children.
Kidd has been remanded in custody and faces 14 years in jail if convicted
‘Given that he has been behaving like this for 30 years the likelihood is there could be many other victims out there who have not yet come forward.
‘This man used his Royal connections to impress and seduce young boys. He even had autographed pictures of Manchester United players on his walls at home.
‘He was acting with at least one other man and it’s possible he could have been communicating with many other paedophiles over many years.
‘These offences are probably just the tip of the iceberg.’
Kidd had honed his skills as a silver service waiter when he joined the Royal Navy after leaving school – looking after the captain and officers.
During his naval service he visited 22 countries around the world. In 1976 he was appointed as butler to the Queen at Buckingham Palace and served there for six years until being transferred to Clarence House where he served the Queen Mother.
During his years in Royal service, he was said to have met and looked after three American Presidents including Jimmy Carter and Ronald Regan plus many other Heads of State from around the world.
He was also said to have worked closely with Princess Diana at Buckingham Palace in the six months prior to her wedding to Prince Charles.
In 1985 he gave up Royal Service due to a cancer scare but then started charging up to £4,000 a time as an after dinner speaker talking about his work with the Royal Family.
He ran a series of lectures including one he called: An uncomfortable experience for the Queens page boy.
Kidd also starred on numerous TV chat shows in the UK and USA including the Caroline Rhea show in New York.
He also appeared on stage with Hollywood actor Robin Williams at the Nemacolin Spa & Resort Centre in the USA.
He joined Robert Kilroy Silk’s UK Independence party standing unsuccessfully as a candidate in local council elections.
In one interview Kidd said of the Queen: ‘She was always very courteous, but she only ever addressed me as ‘Kidd’ – never by my first name.
‘She deals with people in a genuinely caring manner. Her children are the future of the country, they cannot be brought up in a namby-pamby manner.
‘But in private, as a mother and grandmother, she dotes on the children.’
Police began investigating Kidd earlier this year after a victim, now 41 read a newspaper article about Kidd in which he talked about Princess Diana on the 10th anniversary of her death.
The victim was thought to be so disgusted by his bragging, he went to police and told officers how he was 14 when he was abused by Kidd after meeting him through a CB radio group.
Kidd introduced the lad to his Royal employers and took him for tea with the Queen Mother in the late 70s.
It is believed the victim even spoke to the Queen Mother – at a time when the late Royal had no idea he was being secretly abused by her servant.
It emerged he had met Kidd though a religious group when he was 14 and he was sexually accused and passed onto another paedophile.
A third victim later came forward to say he was abused in the 1980s when he was 15 after meeting him when Kidd was training to be a nurse.
At Minshull Street Crown Court, Manchester, Kidd and Hobday were told they would be sentenced on November 20 after probation officers complete a report assessing whether they are a risk to the public.
Various other charges will be allowed to lie on file.
Both were remanded in custody and Judge Mushtaq Khokhar told them: ‘You have both pleaded guilty to serious offences and you will be under no illusion that the likely sentence is going to be custody.’
BUCKINGHAM Palace has leapt to the defence of the Duke of York Prince Andrew after it was alleged in an American court he had had sex with an underage ‘sex slave’ kept by a notorious paedophile.
The palace has strenuously denied the claim made in papers filed in Florida by a woman who detailed she was 17-years-old when she was “was forced to have sexual relations with this prince when she was a minor” in London, New York and on a private Caribbean island owned by billionaire Wall Street financier and convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The prince, now 54, was photographed with Epstein in New York two years after the American’s release from prison in 2009, and their friendship was a source of controversy.
The woman’s sex allegations made indirectly against Prince Andrew was alleged to have occurred between 1999 and 2002.
The accusation is reportedly contained in a motion filed in US District Court in West Palm Beach this week which is part of a lawsuit over how federal prosecutors handled the case of Epstein, who was sentenced to 18 months in prison in 2008 for soliciting a minor for prostitution.
“This relates to longstanding and ongoing civil proceedings in the United States, to which the Duke of York is not a party,” a spokeswoman for Buckingham Palace said today.
“As such we would not comment on the detail. However, for the avoidance of doubt, any suggestion of impropriety with under age minors is categorically untrue”
The woman, identified only as “Jane Doe”, has made the indirect claim of underage sex with the prince before as she seeks a civil case against federal prosecutors for making a plea-bargain deal with Epstein without consulting his victims, in violation of the US Crime Victims Rights’ Act.
According to her claim she was part of an underage orgy with the prince arranged by Epstein.
“Epstein instructed Jane Doe that she was to give the Prince whatever he demanded and required Jane Doe to report back to him on the details of the sexual abuse,” the document states.
Others named in the filing include Alan Dershowitz, one of Epstein’s defence lawyers, with whom the woman was allegedly forced to have sex with on several occasions. He denies the claim and says he can prove it and challenged her to file criminal charges against him. He said he also planned to act swiftly to have her lawyers disbarred for unethical conduct.
The prince, fifth in line to the throne, has often faced scrutiny over his relationships with controversial figures including Epstein.
In July 2011 he stepped down from his role as the UK’s roving business ambassador after he was accused of a lack of judgment about his links with the American billionaire who according to the prince’s ex wife Sarah Ferguson helped paid some of her debts off.
Doubts were raised about his position in the wake of media coverage about him entertaining the son-in-law of ousted Tunisian president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali at Buckingham Palace.
He also held a meeting with Libya’s then leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, while on a private visit to Tunisia in 2008.

- Libyan tyrant forced hundreds of young girls to become his sex slaves
- Gaddafi also had a ‘harem’ of young men called ‘the services group’
- Dictator visited schools and ‘chose’ his victims with a pat on the head
- Gaddafi was killed in October 2011 after 42 years of dictatorship
IT has been more than two years since the capture and death of Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan dictator whose reign subjected an impoverished people to four decades of murder and terror.
When the bedraggled former leader was hauled out of a drainpipe and shot in October 2011, his death ended the bloody Nato-led civil war that had ravaged the country since the start of that year.
The full horror of his brutality has been slow to emerge, with many Libyans still fearing retaliation by those who continue to be loyal to their late leader. But it can now be revealed that the most heartbreaking of Gaddafi’s victims include hundreds, possibly thousands of teenage girls who, throughout his 42-year reign, were beaten, raped and forced to become his sex slaves.
Chilling: This is the bedroom in Gaddafi’s ‘sex dungeon’, decorated in 70s style with brown walls and a double bed, where he would take girls as young as 14 and sexually abuse them against their will
Degrading: This is the fully-fitted gynecological suite where young girls would be placed in one of the two beds and checked for STDs before they were sent in to the waiting dictator
Many were virgins kidnapped from schools and universities and kept prisoner for years in a specially designed secret sex lair hidden within Tripoli University or his many palaces. In the 26 months since he was deposed, Gaddafi’s den – where he regularly raped girls as young as 14 – has remained locked. But today its gaudy interior, where the colonel brutalised his victims, can be seen for the first time in photographs from a hard-hitting BBC4 documentary.
Inside the small, nondescript single-storey complex, the girls were forced to watch pornography to ‘educate’ them for their degrading treatment at the hands of Gaddafi. And even those who did manage to escape were often shunned by their deeply religious Muslim families who believed their family honour had been tainted.
When the dictator’s body was dragged through the streets by a baying mob, just hours after he was beaten and shot in the head, the hastily convened transitional government moved swiftly to seal off the sex dungeon. They feared the full extent of Gaddafi’s debased and lewd lifestyle would horrify the Western world and cause deep embarrassment to Libya.
One of the rooms holds little more than a double bed, lit by an orange lamp. Its 1970s decor and grimy Jacuzzi – all left exactly as they were when Gaddafi last used it – give it a seedy and gloomy air. But even more chilling is the clinical gynaecological suite in an adjoining room. It was here, on two beds fitted with stirrups behind a table laden with surgical instruments, that Gaddafi’s young victims were examined to ensure they had no sexually transmittable diseases. And here they were forced to undergo abortions if they became pregnant.
‘Sexual deviant’: Colonel Gaddafi kept hundreds of girls as sex slaves during his years at the helm of Libya, but also kept a ‘harem’ of young boys
They, however, were the lucky ones. Other young victims were so badly abused that they were dumped in car parks and on waste ground, and left to die.
Gaddafi’s modus operandi was to tour schools and universities where female students were invited to his lectures.
As he spoke before his hushed audience, he would silently scan the room seeking out attractive girls. Before leaving he would pat those he had ‘selected’ on the head.
Within hours his private bodyguards would round up those chosen and kidnap them. If their families tried to keep them from Gaddafi’s clutches, they were gunned down.
One teacher at a Tripoli school recalled how the girls were all very young. ‘Some were only 14,’ she said. ‘They would simply take the girl they wanted. They had no conscience, no morals, not an iota of mercy even though she was a mere child.’
The teacher also feared for her own daughter who was attending Tripoli University.
She told her mother how the community around the university lived in fear when a visit from the colonel was announced. ‘The girls he wanted would be rounded up and sent to him,’ she said.
‘One just disappeared and they never found her again, despite her father and brothers searching for her. Another was found three months later, cut, raped and lying in the middle of a park. She had been left for dead.’
Even today, the Libyan people are afraid to speak openly about Gaddafi’s depravity, fearing reprisals from his former henchmen.
But one woman – who was repeatedly raped by the despot over seven years from the age of 15 – has anonymously spoken of how he terrorised and abused her. She had been chosen to present the colonel with a bouquet when he toured her school in his home town of Sirte on the Mediterranean coast, 350 miles east of Tripoli.
When he patted her head afterwards, in an apparently paternal gesture, she thought she had pleased the man she and her fellow Libyans were forced to call ‘the Guide’.
The next day three woman dressed in military uniform arrived telling her parents she was needed to present more flowers. Instead, she was driven at high speed to Gaddafi’s lair. Once there, he barked at his women soldiers: ‘Get her ready.’
The girl was stripped, given a blood test and shaved of all but her pubic hair. She was dressed in a G-string, forced into a low-cut gown and had thick make-up plastered on her face. When she was shoved into Gaddafi’s room, to her horror he was lying naked on the bed. When she tried to run out, the women soldiers grabbed her and flung her back on the bed.
She was raped repeatedly during the seven years she was held captive, eventually escaping when a door was accidentally left unlocked.
Fuelled by cocaine and alcohol – and often Viagra – Gaddafi abused her horribly. ‘I will never forget that first time, that moment,’ she says. ‘He violated my body and pierced my soul with a dagger. That blade will never come out.’
It took the documentary-makers months of negotiations to be allowed access to information on Gaddafi as Libya remains secretive and hide-bound by bureaucracy.
But they also established that Gaddafi set up a ‘murder for hire’ team run from Tripoli to rid him of enemies around the world. In a secret interview from Cuba, former CIA agent Frank Terpil said: ‘I would say [it was] Murder Incorporated . . . murder for hire. Gaddafi thought that anybody who was a dissident, they [should be] eliminated, he had contracts out on a bunch of people in London.’
He often stored the bodies of those killed in Libya in freezers so that he could regularly view them.
If Gaddafi was power-crazed, he was also paranoid. A Brazilian plastic surgeon found himself escorted deep inside a bunker in Tripoli in the middle of the night in order to remove fat from Gaddafi’s belly and inject it into his increasingly wrinkled face.
Despite the pain, Gaddafi refused a general anaesthetic, fearing he might be poisoned – and because he wished to remain alert.
Halfway through the operation, he stopped to have a hamburger.
He also created an elite squad of bodyguards – all female – whom he used for sex and forced to watch multiple barbaric executions.
For decades Gaddafi surrounded himself with these beautiful young women. Dressed in close-fitting military uniforms, with manicured nails and perfectly coiffed hair, they exuded glamour while toting guns.
But they were little more than disposable prostitutes used and abused by Gaddafi and his family.
Known as ‘the Haris al-Has’ – the private female guards – almost all were coerced into joining his cadre. One of them, who admits she had ‘once adored him’, recalled the horrific treatment they had to endure. ‘Early one morning, at 2am, we were taken to a closed hall,’ she said. ‘We were to witness the murder of 17 students. We were not allowed to scream. We were made to cheer and shout. To act as though delighted by this display. Inside I was crying. They shot them all, one by one.’
According to Benghazi-based psychologist Seham Sergewa, who interviewed scores of the girls for the International Criminal Court, there were about 400 members of the elite squad over the years.
‘A pattern emerged in their stories,’ she explains. ‘The women would first be raped by the dictator then passed on, like used objects, to one of his sons and eventually to high- ranking officials for more abuse.
‘In one case a girl of 18 said she was raped in front of her father. She kept begging her distraught father to look away. Many of the victims say they contemplated suicide many times. Doubtless there were some who took their own lives.’
The end: After months of civil war, Muammar Gaddafi was tracked down in October 2011 and shot by freedom fighters
It has also emerged that teams of boys were sent to Gaddafi’s sex den, where they too were abused. Former chief of protocol Nuri Al Mismari, who was at Gaddafi’s side for 40 years, adds: ‘He was terribly sexually deviant. Young boys and so on. He had his own boys. They used to be called the “services group”. All of them were boys and bodyguards . . . a harem for his pleasure.’ One of the few Libyans who was prepared to be named and talk about the horrors Gaddafi inflicted on his people was Baha Kikhia, the widow of Libya’s former foreign minister with whom Gaddafi had a frosty relationship.
When her husband vanished one evening, she confronted Gaddafi about his whereabouts. The colonel refused to tell but, to Baha’s horror, his body was one of many found in freezers after the regime fell.
‘He liked to keep his victims in the refrigerators to look at them now and again,’ she says haltingly. ‘He would visit his victims.
‘It was as though they were some sort of macabre souvenirs. Something that he could look at and touch to remind himself of his omnipotence. Some had been there as long as 25 years.’
The Libyan people had always known Gaddafi to be violent and unstable, but it was only after he was accused of perpetrating the Lockerbie bombing on December 21, 1988 – in which 270 American and British lives were lost when Libya blew up the Pan Am airliner on which they were travelling – that the West was prepared to take any action.
Strict sanctions were applied by America, although according to Gwenyth Todd, the former National Security Council Director for Libya at the White House, Western leaders – including Britain’s then Prime Minister, Tony Blair – eventually sought to have them lifted and Gaddafi’s reputation restored.
In 2001, Libyan Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi was convicted of the Lockerbie bombing and jailed for life.
But eight years later, seriously ill with cancer, he was controversially released by the Scottish legal system on compassionate grounds –although many including Jim Swire, the father of one of the victims, maintain he was not guilty of the bombing.
The BBC4 documentary also suggests the Lockerbie jet was not the only one Gaddafi’s regime blew up. Ali Aujali, Libya’s former ambassador to Washington, insists Gaddafi was responsible for bringing down a civilian aircraft in 1992 within a day of the fourth Lockerbie anniversary, killing all 157 on board.
‘Gaddafi shot down a Libyan jet just to send a message to the world that sanctions had hurt Libyan lives,’ Aujali says. ‘It was his way of showing the world how sanctions were affecting life in Libya – making it look as though the plane crashed because it needed spare parts which weren’t available. It was 100 per cent down to Gaddafi.’
Music mogul Simon Cowell comforted by high-flying Braziian socialite
A BRAZILIAN socialite is putting the smile back on Simon Cowell’s face following his week from hell.
A BRAZILIAN socialite is putting the smile back on Simon Cowell’s face following his week from hell.
Latin beauty Anna Paula Pzevedo was his mystery, late-night dinner date on Wednesday as he addressed the fallout from Tom Bower’s controversial biography.
In the book, Bower reveals the couple first grew close in Barbados in January at the end of a “high-spirited night” at the island’s yacht club.
And they were seen enjoying an “intimate embrace”.
Bower’s book, which was released yesterday, reveals Cowell, 52, invited a group of Brazilian girls, including Anna, on to his Slipstream yacht after dinner.
It says: “By 5am, he was intimately embraced with Anna Paula – a well-known international socialite.”
The pair were also seen kissing aboard a £30million yacht the next day.
Bower adds: “At teatime, she had flown back to Sao Paulo on a private jet and had texted her intentions.”
“She’s coming to London soon,” the music mogul later announced at dinner. “That should be fun.”
The couple kept in touch and were spotted earlier this week at Mr Chow’s restaurant, in Knightsbridge, along with Cowell’s former girlfriend Jackie St Clair, 48, and her husband.
Earlier he had taken her to a concert by his classical group Il Divo at the Royal Albert Hall.
Friends say they been on at least ”three dates” since January but insist she didn’t stay overnight at his London mansion on Wednesday.
A friend said: “Simon is a single guy and Anna is just a friend.”
The 41-year-old was once married to sports tycoon Johan Eliasch – the former Tory Party treasurer who quit to become an environmental adviser to Gordon Brown and was also friends with Prince Andrew.
Cowell’s ex-girlfriend Mezhgan Hussainy was not with him during his winter break in Barbados.
It later emerged the pair had split up although his team were determined to keep the news under wraps.
Cowell had started dating Hollywood make-up artist Mezhgan in 2009 after splitting from Terri Seymour, with whom he lived in Los Angeles.
Yesterday, Cowell took his mind off his troubles by buying himself a £50,000 three-wheeled Carver 1 car.
He posted a picture of it on Twitter, saying: “I decided to buy myself a sensible car for once”.
Bower’s book, Sweet Revenge, has sparked a backlash.
Cowell upset friends and former colleagues by admitting sleeping with Dannii Minogue, right, branding Cheryl Cole a “toy” and describing Gary Barlow as “too scripted”.
But ITV tried to pacify Cowell after suggestions he may take X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent away from the channel.
A spokesman said: “We’re continuing to work closely with Simon and the production teams to ensure the shows are the very best they can be.”
English, Lambeth-born, Simon Phillip Cowell aka Simon Cowell, his father Eric Selig Phillip Cowell Senior of Jewish decent and his mother, Julie Brett (née Josie Dalglish), a former ballet dancer and socialite, of Christian decent, Jesus was a Jewish Rabbi, Christianity is a Jewish offshoot. Cowell is a Christian, he has had close links to convicted paedophile British publicist Max Clifford, they were friends as well as work colleagues, Clifford was Cowell’s spokesman.
Cowell put up £50,000 of convicted paedophile Jonathan King’s £150,000 bail money after he was first arrested. Shakespeare (2004) reports “According to King, when Cowell found out he had been arrested, he was the first person to offer to help. King says that he later called Cowell to see if he’d put up part of the bail money and the X Factor star replied that he “didn’t need to ask”“. “The money kept King out of prison during the lead-up to his Old Bailey trial in 2001, when he was jailed for seven years for offences against boys aged 14 and 15 in the 1980s“. Jonathan King said in a 1968 Music Maker magazine article that the “the seamy side” of the pop world “is considered natural behaviour by a large portion of British youth. Pop performers“, he continued, “take sex wherever they find it, and there are very many outsiders willing to provide those facilities” (Chalmers, 2012).
Cowell had connections to paedophile Michael Jackson, he made it a priority to persuade Jackson to appear on an X-Factor live show during a 2009 series, he then celebrated the deceased paedophile on the X-Factor in 2011 (Telegraph, 2009). As well as a mountain of other rapes on little boys, Jackson molested a 10-year-old boy 100 times over four years during the 1980s until he hit puberty (Walker, 2014).
He is connected with Freemasons which is a Jewish organization, photographed multiple times on a Jet Ski displaying masonic symbolism. The masons are deeply involved in child abuse and ritual child murder according to victim testimony. Cowell has met the Royal family, there is pictures of him with the Queen, members of the Royal family also having links to child murderers and paedophiles.
Cowell was mentioned by an alleged former MI6 victim of child abuse who was allegedly made to participate in “electroshock, paedophilia, drugging, group rape“. The alleged victim also said “The person who did it to me was Thomas Hurd (MI6) and this was at Douglas Hurd’s cottage . Also met John Scarlett and Eliza Manningham-Buller, and Stella Rimington. Blair, Mandelson, Kinnock, Saatchi, Cameron, Osborne and others (Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan) all attended. It makes perfect sense if you are worshipping Satan” (Makow, 2012).
Cowell has connections to Saviles protege & Lord Mountbattens nephew Prince Charles, another Royal with obvious paedophile tendencies as well as his brother Prince Andrew who is friends with Jewish paedophiles Jeffrey Epstein & Ghislaine Maxwell as well as the Royal paedophile butler Paul Kidd, Jimmy Savile, Tom Cruise and Muammar Gaddafi to give examples.
According to a friend of Cowells in 2012 “Simon is a single guy and Anna is just a friend“, Anna being Brazilian socialite Anna Paula Pzevedo a environmental adviser to paedophile Gordon Brown and was also friends with paedophile Prince Andrew (Bryant, 2012; Daily Mail, 2008).
It is common gossip in Britain that Simon Cowell is a paedophile, just like it was Savile in the news rooms in the 1980s. Bill Maloney and others in the radio and documentary business openly call Simon Cowell out as a paedophile.
Although not currently known how close Cowell & Jennings were, talent scout Sean Jennings aka Sean Jeffrey who worked with X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent acts has been exposed as a convicted paedophile. Jennings was jailed in 2003 after police discovered 10,000+ indecent images of young boys at his Bristol home. Jennings has submitted acts to two of Simon Cowell’s talent programmes (Bloom & Smith, 2014).
In the image below you will see Cowell using Masonic symbolism representing the left eye of Set or Saturn. The female in the center of the image is using a Masonic hand gesture with her right hand above the letter W, when the image is turned upside down it represents an M for Masons while the stars turn into pentagrams. With her right hand she is pointing towards Cowell doing Masonic symbolism representing the left eye of Set or Saturn. The black gentleman has his hand over his left breast, another Freemasonic gesture. You also have the phrase “Idol Worship”, it is whats known as subliminal programming, the targeting of your subconscious mind, techniques used include but are not restricted to Hypnosis (Studies have shown roughly 30% of people tested have resistance to being hypnotized, although with effort hypnosis is usually achieved eventually), Psychological Warfare, Propaganda and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP);
