Exclusive: Ex-Boyfriend of 'Sex Slave' at Center Of International Scandal
INSIDE EDITION speaks exclusively to the ex-boyfriend of Virginia Roberts, the woman claiming she was forced to be a sex slave to Prince Andrew and others.
The beautiful woman at the center of an international sex scandal is getting support from, of all people, her ex-boyfriend.
Anthony Figueroa was 18 and right out of high school when he began dating 17-year-old Virginia Roberts.
INSIDE EDITION's Les Trent asked Figueroa, "What do you say to people who believe that your former girlfriend, Virginia Roberts, is making this up?"
"Anyone who knows Virginia, I mean, she was pretty honest about it," replied Figueroa.
She's identified as Jane Doe #3 in a bombshell lawsuit claiming she was forced to have sex when she was 17 with a number of high profile figures including super-lawyer Alan Dershowitz.
Dershowitz blasted her story to INSIDE EDITION, saying, "She is a complete and total stranger who has made a complete and total fabrication."
Trent asked Figueroa, "Did she ever mention to you the lawyer Alan Dershowitz?"
"She had never mentioned anything about them having sex, or brought up anything like that," he replied.
Also dragged into the scandal is England's Prince Andrew.
Figueroa said, "She was all excited, 'I'm going to meet the prince!' "
Virginia Roberts says she had sex with Prince Andrew on three different occasions. But Buckingham Palace calls the shocking allegations: "False and without any foundation."
She also claims she was kept as a sex slave by disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who pled guilty in 2008 to soliciting an underage girl for prostitution.
"She told me she was his personal masseuse and that she traveled around the world with him two weeks out of every month," stated Figueroa.
Trent asked, "She's telling you about these things that are happening with Epstein and other men. Why are you still dating her?"
"She had money. I mean, I was a young kid," he answered.
Figueroa and Roberts broke up in 2002 and that's the last time he saw the beauty at the center of the explosive scandal.
