PRINCE Andrew has reportedly been named in bombshell new evidence detailing more allegations against his paedo pal Jeffrey Epstein.
A judge in the US is to decide “within the next six weeks” whether to unseal more than 3,000 pages of shocking new evidence, say reports.
It’s been reported Prince Andrew has been named in explosive new claims
Hundreds of the shamed tycoon’s elite inner circle are believed to be named in the legal files – including politicians and the Duke of York.
All of those named in the files will be formally told before January so they can respond, reports the Daily Telegraph today.
The evidence is apparently inked to a defamation lawsuit by Epstein victim Virginia Roberts against his alleged co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell.
In a BBC Newsnight interview Andrew denied he slept with Miss Roberts, on three separate occasions, twice while she was underage under US law.
In the extraordinary interview he claimed he had taken Princess Beatrice to Pizza Express on the night he is accused of sleeping with Roberts, a “sex slave” Epstein.
The Duke also said a peculiar medical condition triggered by being shot at in the Falklands War meant he could not have sweated profusely as she has claimed.
He appeared to suggest a photo of them at a friends flat in 2001 could have been faked.
Asked about claims that they had sex, he said: I can absolutely categorically tell you it never happened.
In the interview shown on BBC2 last night, Andrew told Newsnights Emily Maitlis he did not regret his friendship with the late Epstein.
And he did not believe the scandal had affected the Queens standing but said it had damaged his mental health.
Roberts has claimed she met Andrew at London club Tramp before sleeping with him in 2001.

But Andrew, dad to Beatrice, 31, and Eugenie, 29, with ex-wife Sarah, said: That couldnt have happened because the date being suggested the 10th of March I was at home with the children.
Id taken Beatrice to a Pizza Express in Woking for a party at about 4 or 5 in the afternoon.
And then because the Duchess was away, we have a simple rule in the family that when one is away the other is there.
Asked why he could remember something so specific from 18 years ago, he added: Because going to Pizza Express in Woking is a very unusual thing for me to do.
Ive never been…Ive only been to Woking a couple of times and I remember it weirdly distinctly. As soon as somebody reminded me of it, I went, Oh yes I remember that.
Virginia, now 35 and known as Virginia Giuffre, named Andrew in documents related to Epstein filed in Florida in 2015.
She said she was forced to have sex with the Duke at 17, which is under the age of consent in the state.
A judge later struck out her claims, saying they were immaterial and impertinent.
In the BBC2 interview, Maitlis described Virginias allegations that Andrew bought her drinks in Tramp, they had sex and he sweated profusely.
Andrew said: Ive no recollection of meeting her. In fact Im convinced I was never in Tramp with her.
“There are a number of things wrong with that story, one of which is that I dont know where the bar is in Tramp.
“I dont drink. I dont think Ive ever bought a drink in Tramp.
