UK Royal, Prince Andrew could face another US lawsuit from one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims who accused the royal of groping her breasts in a sickening attack involving an image puppet of himself gifted to him by Ghislaine Maxwell.
Johanna Sjoberg, a former PA to Epstein accused the Duke of York of sexually assaulting her when she was 21 years old and working for Epstein.
The incident allegedly took place in front of Virginia Roberts, now known as Virginia Giuffre, who on Tuesday August 10, launched a bombshell legal action accusing Andrew of raping her.
The lawsuit by Giuffre claims that she was ‘loaned’ to the British royal and forced to have sex with Andrew three times on the orders of Epstein, fearing she would be killed if she disobeyed.
Ms Sjoberg, now 43, had previously been unable to sue because of the amount of time since the alleged attack. But a pending US law change could now allow her to bring her allegations to court.
On Wednesday, August 11, Prince Andrew arrived in Balmoral with his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York, for a holiday with the Queen just 24 hours after the bombshell lawsuit .
Johanna is the second Epstein victim to claim that Andrew had attacked her while on his knee at the billionaire’s New York home.
Ms Sjoberg has accused the duke of groping her by taking a Spitting Image puppet of himself and placing its hand on her breast after she was flown to the US by Epstein to ‘entertain’ the prince around 2001.
She also described Andrew touching her breasts while the puppet was used to grope Virginia Roberts.
She said that she was recruited by Ghislaine Maxwell in 2001, when she was a student at Palm Beach Atlantic College.
Sjoberg was under the impression she was being hired as a personal assistant, but she soon realized her job was to provide ‘sexual massages’ to Epstein, who she has said told her that he needed to have ‘three orgasms a day.’
She alleges she was ‘punished’ when Epstein failed to orgasm as a result of one of her massages, which Maxwell allegedly told her were necessary because ‘she [Maxwell] would not be able to please him as much as he needed and that is why there were other girls around’.
The Duke of York has always denied all charges made by Virginia Roberts saying he doesn’t know her and a viral photo of him holding her waist is fake.
Roberts alleged she was sexually abused by Andrew when she was 17 and that he knew she was the teenage victim of sex trafficking.
Miss Roberts claims she was forced to have sex with him and was ‘lent out for sexual purposes’ by paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Andrew, 61, is yet to make any public comment about the lawsuit since it came out.
