JEFFREY Epstein forced an underage girl to have sex with Prince Andrew to gather incriminating evidence to blackmail him, bombshell court documents claim.
The convicted paedophile allegedly told teenage Virginia Giuffre “to give the Prince whatever he demanded”, the Daily Mail reports.

The court papers claim: [He} “required [her] to report back to him on the details of the sexual abuse.”
They added Epstein did this with other powerful figures to “ingratiate himself with them for business, personal, political and financial gain, as well as to obtain potential blackmail information”.
The claims comes as a Royal insider defended Andrew, describing the allegations against him as “a straight forward untruth, no ifs, no buts”.
Ghislaine Maxwell, arrested last month, allegedly “facilitated Prince Andrew’s acts of sexual abuse”, the documents claim.
The former socialite is accused of being Epstein’s “madam” and recruiting young girls for the disgraced financier.
“Again, I don’t know how much he would be able to help you with, but seeing he’s in a lot of trouble himself these days, I think he might, so I think he may be valuable.”
The Sun Online has gone to Buckingham Palace for comment.
Prince Andrew has been accused in the documents of being the “powerful individual” disgraced financier Epstein’s “sex slave” Ms Giuffre was forced to have sex with.
The Mirror reports he is also accused of having “an orgy with numerous other under-aged girls”.
The royal hasn’t offered a comment since his old friend was arrested and charged with grooming and trafficking underage girls for Epstein.
Maxwell, 58, has been a close friend of the prince for about 30 years.
In the explosive court documents Andrew’s accuser Ms Giuffre described Maxwell’s breasts and pubic hair.
In newly released legal papers Ms Giuffre claims the British socialite had “very large natural breasts”.
Maxwell is awaiting trial after being charged with a series of child grooming charges.
In other documents released this week Ms Roberts Giuffre claimed Maxwell had sex with underage girls during orgies with Jeffrey Epstein on his ‘Paedo Island’.
Maxwell is alleged to have trafficked Ms. Giuffre to Prince Andrew when Ms. Giuffre was a minor.
She claimed Maxwell had sex with underage girls “virtually every day” she was around her, describing the socialite as having “very large natural breasts.”
Her legal team repeatedly claimed the files from her seven-hour, 418-page deposition, as well as correspondence between her and ex Epstein, should remain sealed.
