Virginia Louise Giuffre is an American-Australian campaigner who offers support to victims of sex trafficking and is a victim of the sex trafficking ring of Jeffrey Epstein. Giuffre created Victims Refuse Silence, a non-profit based in the United States, in 2015.
Giuffre, now 38, was born Virginia Roberts into a troubled home in Sacramento, California in August 1983. She ran away several times and spent time living on the streets.
In 2000, at the age of 16, she worked a summer job as a spa attendant at former US President Donald Trump´s Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach, Florida.
It was there, Giuffre says, that she met British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell who she said offered her a job as a traveling masseuse for a rich financier: Jeffrey Epstein.
Guiffre filed a lawsuit against Prince alleging that he sexually assaulted her in 2001 when she was 17 and a minor under American law.
The Duke of York has settled the sexual assault case filed against him by Virginia Giuffre for an undisclosed sum, sparing him the humiliation of giving evidence in a trial and protecting the royal family from further reputational damage.
