Prince Andrew Kevin Spacey

Prince Andrew is currently preparing to fight the sexual assault lawsuit filed against him by Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims that she was forced to have sex with the royal at least three times when she was an underage girl.

Now, surprising new reports are coming in stating that Andrew is eager for disgraced actor Kevin Spacey, of all people, to help him prove his alleged innocence in this case.

Andrew Wants Kevin Spacey To Help Him

Andrew is desperately trying to distance himself from Ghislaine Maxwell, the alleged former madam of the late billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, after a photo surfaced of her with Spacey at Buckingham Palace back in 2002.

One insider close to Andrew claimed that the photo was taken during a VIP tour of the palace, but the Royal claims that it was Spacey who invited Maxwell, not him.

Andrew would now like Spacey to tell this to the jury that will ultimately decide his fate.

“Andrew had invited Spacey for the tour of the Palace,” the source told The Sun. “She came with him — not as a guest of Andrew’s.”

Andrew Sees Spacey As ‘A Very Compelling Asset’

“The snaps go right to the centre of the claims against Andrew, and an image of Ghislaine Maxwell in the most private space within Buckingham Palace looks very damning,” this insider continued. “But if Kevin can convince a jury he was the crucial link with Ghislaine, rather than Andrew, it distances the Prince from her somewhat — and that’s crucial.

“Andrew also believes such a gifted actor and public speaker could be a very compelling asset in front of a jury,” the source concluded. 

This is all a bit ironic, given the fact that Spacey has been effectively blacklisted by Hollywood amidst sexual misconduct allegations of his own.

Despite this, Spacey is rumored to be “high on a hit list of names” that Andrew wants to call to testify in the jury trial that he has demanded over Giuffre’s sexual abuse claims. 

“It’s a ballsy move to think about using Spacey given his own problems,” the insider said. “But his testimony would add to Andrew’s argument that Ghislaine was not a close friend.”

Andrew Distances Himself From Maxwell

Though Andrew claimed in legal documents last week that Maxwell was not a close friend of his, a palace security official contradicted this by saying that the controversial former British socialite would “breeze in like one of the Royal Family.” 

Maxwell was convicted late last month on five out of six charges related to her allegedly grooming young girls for sex with Epstein, and sometimes participating in the abuse herself. Epstein allegedly committed suicide in August of 2019 while awaiting trial on sex charges of his own.

The Royal family is rumored to be pressuring Andrew to settle out of court with Giuffre in the hopes of saving any further embarrassment, yet he seems hellbent on clearing his name in court. It will certainly be interesting to see if Spacey ends up testifying at his trial.
