Hollywood lawyer Andrew Brettler is hoping a verbal attack on accuser Virginia Guiffre will save the Royal.

In a move that prompted accusations of victim blaming, the Prince’s team also filed several tabloid articles attacking her character, including a New York Daily News story that referred to her as a “money-hungry sex kitten”.

At the same time, Prince Andrew‘s ‘shocking’ Newsnight interview will reportedly be used in the civil lawsuit against him filed by Mrs Giuffre, her lawyer has revealed.

Sigrid McCawley, an attorney for the accuser, said she and her team have looked over the infamous 2019 interview Prince Andrew gave to the BBC for ‘inconsistencies’.

Ms McCawley said the prince’s daughters might also be called to verify his alibi of being at Pizza Express Woking.

Prince Andrew is expected to give a sworn deposition, another of Mrs Giuffre’s lawyers said Wednesday.

During a remote court hearing, attorney David Boies told Manhattan federal Judge Lewis Kaplan that they expect to depose up to a dozen people in the suit, including Andrew and Giuffre.

Judge Kaplan asked Mr Boies if he knew the “core of people” who would be deposed as the suit moved toward trial.

“Certainly, obviously the parties,” Boies responded, referring to Giuffre, the plaintiff, and Andrew, the defendant.

Mr Brettler’s legal clients are a roll call of men whose alleged behaviour in Hollywood has resulted in legal action.

He recently defended actor Armie Hammer, who faced allegations of cannibalistic fetishisms and accused of abusing a woman during a four-year relationship.

Mr Hammer has denied the allegations.

Mr Brettler has also defended director Bryan Singer who was accused of sexually assaulting minors, comedian Chris D’Elia, who was accused of soliciting child pornography from 17-year-old girl, and Danny Masterson of That 70s Show who will stand trial on three counts of rape.

All three men have denied the charges.

In addition, Mr Brettler also represented singer-songwriter Ryan Adams, who was accused of sexual misconduct by several women in 2019.

In early August, Mrs Giuffre (who now lives in Australia) brought a lawsuit against the Duke of York claiming he sexually abused her on multiple occasions.

The abuse was said to have taken place when she was 17 and involved late disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, as well as jailed socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.
