Prince Andrew settled £ 6.6 million debt with socialist, allowing £ 18 million to sell ski hut to fund sexual abuse lawsuit


Prince Andrew has finally settled his £ 6.6 million debt with the socialite, which is said to allow him to fund his sexual abuse lawsuit.

Former Paul Isabelle de Rouvre, 74, sold the Swiss ski hut to the Duke of York and his former wife, Sarah Ferguson, for £ 18 million in 2014.

Ms de Rouvre says the Yorkers could not meet the deadline for repayment, although it was agreed that the house would be paid in installments.

He sued for £ 6.6 million, including interest, in 2020.

Mail Online reports that the matter has now been resolved because Duke paid off its debt last year.

Ms de Rouvre told the outlet: “I sold it two months ago, or it was one. Maybe six weeks ago.

“Anyway, I sold it to the Yorks and we made a deal. Thankfully that’s the end of the story.

“The war is over, this is the end of the matter, and I have nothing to do with it now.

‘”I don’t know what they are doing now. They were here at Christmas but I only know them because I read it in the press. I didn’t see them. So Happy Christmas and that.

“About six weeks ago the matter was closed. It’s November. It’s over. They paid and it’s over. It’s closed to me. The war is over.

“They paid for it. We had a war against Kovid. It was more important but it was a different war.

“The second payment has to be paid and that payment has now been made. That’s it. That’s it. You can be sure. It’s over.

The settlement now allows Andrew to sell the property and use the money for his legal bills for sexual abuse charges.

It comes days after it was revealed that the Duke of York had found a buyer for the property.

Chalet Helora – which has an indoor pool and sauna – is marketed at 22 million Swiss francs (£ 17.6m).

A close source of sales said: “The buyer has been found and the price has been agreed.

“Things are happening. It’s not over yet.

Duke is currently waiting for a judge to decide whether to dismiss Virginia Roberts Giffrey’s civil suit.

If this continues, Andrew will face a full civil trial in New York on charges of sexually abusing Ms Giuffre three times between 1999 and 2002 at the age of 17.

Andrew always strongly denies all the charges against him.

Now 38, Ms Giuffre has filed a battery and emotional distress lawsuit against Andrew.

Andrew’s sex trafficker Paul Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty last week of pleading guilty to sexually abusing an ex-boyfriend for sexually abusing former lover Epstein’s assets between 1994 and 2004.
