Crisis management firm claims that Jeffrey Epstein failed to pay fees for advice to deal with scandal over his links with Prince Andrew.
The Mail Online reports: Billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein is being sued by a crisis management company that claims he hired it in 2011 to deal with the scandal over his friendship with Prince Andrew.
Sitrick & Co accuses the financier of failing to pay £65,000 fees for advising him after the Duke of York stayed at his £30million mansion in Manhattan.
Andrew was seen strolling through Central Park with Epstein in a scandal that caused the prince acute embarrassment and forced him to step down from his role as Britain’s trade envoy.
Sitrick claims Epstein, who was jailed for 13 months in 2008 for soliciting girls for underage prostitution, agreed for the firm to provide ‘consulting advice and public relations services’ over the friendship.
Epstein was one of the wealthiest and well-connected men in America until he was jailed for 13 months in 2008 for soliciting girls for underage prostitution.
But despite this Prince Andrew stayed friends with him for three more years until they were seen together.
The California Superior Court papers filed by Sitrick & Co. say: ‘On or about March 11, 2011, Epstein entered an oral agreement with (Sitrick) to provide consulting advice and public relations services concerning Epstein’s relationship with Prince Andrew.’
