Prince Andrew has paid settlement to Virginia Giuffre, according to her attorney
“The payment was received, the settlement we announced last month has been completed. We are obviously very pleased with the outcome,” Giuffre attorney David Boies told CNN.
Boies would not disclose the amount the two parties agreed upon.
CNN reached out to counsel for Prince Andrew for comment.
After the payment was made, attorneys for both parties filed a stipulation for the lawsuit to be dismissed with prejudice, meaning Giuffre cannot refile the claim in the same district court in New York.
The settlement brings to a close a civil lawsuit that sprung from the sprawling and disturbing allegations against Jeffrey Epstein, the wealthy sex offender who befriended a series of powerful men despite a sketchy history.
The prince has repeatedly denied wrongdoing. Still, the allegations against Andrew, 62, dramatically tarnished his public standing, and he stepped back from royal duties in late 2019.
“Prince Andrew intends to make a substantial donation to Ms. Giuffre’s charity in support of victims’ rights. Prince Andrew has never intended to malign Ms. Giuffre’s character, and he accepts that she has suffered both as an established victim of abuse and as a result of unfair public attacks,” according to a letter filed to the court last month announcing the settlement.
