Prince Andrew ‘maybe has something to hide,’ Jeffrey Epstein’s butler says
The longtime butler for Jeffrey Epstein is finally speaking out about his time working for the pervy Pedo-financier — and dishing on his famous pals.
Juan Alessi, 70, who worked for Epstein from 1991 through 2006, gave a jaw-dropping interview to the Mirror saying Prince Andrew “maybe has something to hide” after the royal’s alleged refusal to speak to the FBI and trashes the Prince’s bestie, Ghislaine Maxwell.
Alessi has given depositions to the FBI and police in the past but hasn’t spoken openly until now.
In the interview, Alessi describes how Andrew attended naked pool parties at Epstein’s Florida “House of Sin” and that, over the years, Prince Andrew was among regular guests at Epstein’s Palm Beach home, partaking in daily massages from Epstein’s underaged harem.
Alessi, who claims to have set up Andrew’s massage tables personally, believes the Queen’s son should speak to investigators, saying.
“He should. Maybe he has something to hide,” he told the Mirror. “I don’t know. I don’t know what happened beyond that.”
Epstein, 66, committed suicide last August while awaiting trial for underage sex trafficking while Andrew had to quit public duties over their friendship and is currently hiding out with his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, in their home on the Windsor Estate.
The Mirror notes that in November 2005, Alessi gave a sworn statement to Palm Beach Police in the criminal investigation into Epstein saying the Prince “spent weeks with us” and slept in “the blue room” — the main guest bedroom.
Alessi described the Palm Beach home as “full” of nude pictures of young women.
“You would need to be blind not to see them,” he said. “Pictures of young girls, objects and ornaments were all over the house.”
During Andrew’s stays, he said naked girls would fill the pool but always put on clothes in the house — and Alessi claimed he never personally saw Andrew “taking part in any of the sexual impropriety claimed by two women against the royal, which [Andrew] vehemently denies.”
“[Andrew] was a nice guy. I never see him with girls. I never see him with Virginia. I never saw him naked or actually having the massage,” Alessi told the paper. “If he had a massage, like I say in my deposition, everything was upstairs behind closed doors. I never saw him kissing anybody or patting anybody. … He was the only person who ever left my wife and I a tip when he left. It was $140 bucks. It was so nice — Epstein did not allow anybody to tip us.”
As for Epstein’s reputed pimp Maxwell, Alessi slams Andrew’s former bestie calling her “the devil” and claiming she made him drive as she trawled the streets of Palm Beach and Mar-a-Lago looking for young girls to massage Epstein.
“She absolutely knew what Epstein was doing,” Alessi told the Mirror. Maxwell, who has been hiding out since Epstein’s death, has been accused by several women of abuse.
As well as driving Maxwell, Alessi was also in charge of cleaning Epstein and Maxwell’s sex toys.
“I’d find sex toys in her sink. I took it as a perversion, not an abuse,” Alessi said. “I used to put my gloves on and pick it up and wash it. … The FBI needs to talk to Ghislaine. She knows more than anyone. Whole days she spent recruiting girls. I was driving. I wish I had known what for. I would stop at a massage parlour and she would go in, take business cards. One time she had me drive to Mar-A-Lago looking for girls, and that is when she found Virginia.”
Virginia Giuffre is one of the most outspoken victims of Epstein — and won a libel case against Maxwell. Giuffre and Alessi secretly reunited several months ago in a “tearful” reunion.
“She told me ‘John, they abused me the first night,” Alessi recalled. “I said ‘Virginia why didn’t you come down and yell? I would have gone that moment to the police.’ She was such an innocent little girl when we first met. She told me many things. I believe her. She was too frightened to speak at the time. As far as I know, she was having a massage. I am a father. I would have punched the s— out of this guy.”
Alessi was also the paymaster for the girls.
“I used to go to the bank, withdraw $10,000,” he said. “I’d pay them out of petty cash and fill out a receipt. I wish I’d known what they were really being paid for. He swore them to secrecy, threatened them if they ever told.”
Alessi claimed he broke his silence to end the “nightmare.”
“It was a relief when he died because he was a danger. He was a coward. He could not confront what was coming. I was afraid of him. Ghislaine should face justice. I hope they get her. I hope Prince Andrew, as a father himself, does the right thing too.”
