Virginia Roberts Giuffre has sued Prince Andrew, alleging he abused her at Jeffrey Epstein's New York mansion.
Giuffre's lawsuit alleged that Epstein had 12 numbers for Prince Andrew in his little black book.
The black book contained more than 1,500 names of celebrities, politicians, and royalty.
The accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein kept a little black book of contacts that included 12 different numbers for Prince Andrew, a new federal lawsuit from his accuser alleged.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of the most prominent Epstein accusers to come forward publicly, sued Prince Andrew Monday, alleging he sexually abused her at Epstein's New York City mansion.
Though the lawsuit has been filed in New York's southern district, Giuffre also alleged that Prince Andrew sexually abused her on Epstein's private plane in the US Virgin Islands, and that he raped her at the home of Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell in London.
New York extended the window to file claims for expired or time-barred child sex abuse cases, allowing Giuffre to sue Prince Andrew for the roughly 20-year-old allegation. That window closes August 14.
Epstein's notorious black book contained the names of 1,510 people and was first published by Gawker in 2015. The contacts included the names of billionaires, politicians, celebrities, academics, and royalty.
Giuffre's lawsuit said the black book helped prove Epstein's "constant access to young girls," and alleged that it contained phone numbers and contact information listing girls in various cities that he could call for "massages."
The book even contained 14 numbers connected to former president Donald Trump, including numbers for his wife Melania, his ex-wife Ivana, his daughter Ivanka, a personal assistant, a houseman, a security officer, and his brother. Trump previously addressed his relationship with Epstein in the summer of 2019, telling reporters he hadn't spoken to Epstein in 15 years. The former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway also told reporters at the time that Trump found Epstein's alleged actions "completely unconscionable and obviously criminal."
Representatives for Prince Andrew didn't immediately provide Insider with a comment. The prince has denied ever knowing Giuffre, and in a July 2020 statement to Insider, his representatives "categorically" denied "any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors."
