OK! can confirm that Virginia Roberts Giuffre — who claims the royal sexually abused her in New York City when she was a minor — filed a lawsuit in New York South District federal court on Monday, August 9.

As OK! previously reported, Roberts has claimed that she was made to have sex with the 61-year-old — who was pals with Jeffrey Epstein — on three different occasions in London, New York, and on Epstein’s private island in the Caribbeans.

"Before he abused me, when we just met, Ghislaine [Maxwell] does this guessing game about my age and he guessed right," Roberts previously claimed on the Surviving Jeffrey Epstein documentary. "I was 17 and he compared me to his daughters, saying, 'Oh, my daughters are a few years younger than you'." (Andrew and ex-wife Sarah Ferguson share Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.)

Roberts went on to say that Prince Andrew “is not the prince from the fairy tale stories you read,” and that the father-of-two "deserves to be outed. He deserves to be held accountable. He's an abuser."

Prince Andrew has said that he does not recall meeting Roberts at all — despite a now-viral photo circulating featuring the royal with his arm around Roberts, taken the first time they allegedly had sex in 2001. As OK! previously reported, advisors for Andrew reportedly contacted a Twitter user to prove that the infamous photo of the Duke with a 17-year-old Roberts was manipulated.

Last year, prosecutors in the US accused the Duke of York of not helping authorities with the investigation process for his association with Epstein and Maxwell.

In April, investigative journalist Ian Halperin offered Andrew the 61-year-old $7 million "to come clean and take a polygraph test with a world-leading polygraph examiner" regarding his friendship with Epstein, who was found dead in his jail cell in 2019.
