Past Due financier Jeffrey Epstein’s 2009 payment agreement with Virginia Giuffre is predicted to be made public on Monday, as a part of Giuffre’s civil lawsuit accusing Britain’s Prince Andrew of sexual abuse.

Giuffre, 38, is looking for unspecified damages in a civil lawsuit filed in Long Island federal courtroom.
Andrew, 61, has denied Giuffre’s assertions and has moved to push aside the lawsuit, arguing Giuffre is seeking a “payday” from her accusations in opposition to Epstein and his buddies. The prince has now not been accused of felony wrongdoing.
He argues a confidential settlement Giuffre reached with Epstein, whom she has accused of trafficking her for sex while she was once an adolescent, shields him from liability. Andrew’s lawyer says the deal covers “royalty” and that Epstein supposed for it to cover somebody Giuffre may sue.
