In the wake of being informed by the FBI of “credible” death threats against primary Epstein accuser, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, wants the public to know that she is not now, nor never has been suicidal.
The Daily Beast and other news outlets are reporting that Giuffre — the most high-profile of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers — who has also made serious allegations against Britain’s Prince Andrew — has said that the FBI warned her of a “credible death threat.”
Giuffre recently posted a concerning message on Twitter, saying, “I am making it publicly known that in no way, shape or form am I suicidal… Too many evil people want to see me quieted.”
She later thanked people for their support in response to that tweet, and claimed the FBI had been in touch to warn her of a threat against her life.
“I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who is standing up beside me fighting for our children to have a safer future,” she wrote. “I have been informed from the FBI there has been a credible death threat against me.”
Giuffre has alleged that she was ordered to have sex with Prince Andrew by Epstein when she was 17 years old, and a notorious photograph shows her with the prince.
The threats against her came after Giuffre gave a high-profile interview, earlier this month, recounting abuse she claims to have suffered at the hands of powerful men including the prince. She claims that Prince Andrew abused her three times – once at Epstein’s New York apartment, once on a yacht in the Caribbean, and once at the London home of Ghislane Maxwell, Epstein’s alleged madam.
The threats on her life also come after alleged abuser Jeffrey Epstein died in custody in the US, in what was officially ruled suicide but others have suggested was a homicide, and apparently Giuffre wants there to be no doubt, should something happen to her, even if apparently by her own hand.
