Prince Andrew has been offered $100 million to take a live televised lie detector test about the child sex abuse allegations leveled against him.

New York Times bestselling author and documentary filmmaker Ian Halperin has made the offer to the embattled 61-year-old royal, who was sued by Virginia Roberts Giuffre this month alleging he sexually abused her at least three times when she was 17.

In her civil lawsuit, Giuffre claims she was a victim of late billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and that he introduced her to the Duke of York.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Halperin said his staggering live TV offer is backed by an investment group and several media companies, and would deliver on the payout for the prince whether he passed the test or not.


Prince Andrew has been offered $100 million by Canadian filmmaker Ian Halperin to take a live televised lie detector test about child sex abuse allegations, DailyMail.com can reveal 

Halperin, author of the book Controversy: Sex, Lies and Dirty Money By The World’s Powerful Elite, in which he described Andrew’s controversial friendship with Epstein.

Halperin says he is the only journalist to have interviewed the late pedophile in depth and Epstein told him he was very close to Prince Andrew. He said they were like ‘brothers’. 

Halperin says the proposed polygraph test would give the prince a chance to clear his name.

The Canadian producer says that Giuffre has offered to also take a lie detector test for free to ‘prove her truth’ should Andrew not accept the sensational deal.

Halperin says that Andrew would be part of the ‘biggest ever pay per view’ event, taking home $2.2 million per 60 seconds for a 45 minute appearance.

The TV interview would see Andrew, connected to a lie detector, answer questions posed by Halperin about his relations with late convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, interactions with Giuffre and others within Epstein’s circle, including alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell.

The event would be Andrew’s first on-camera probe over the legal case, following his disastrous BBC Newsnight interview with presenter Emily Maitlis in November 2019.

‘It will be a pay per view event, hopefully the biggest pay per view in history, where Andrew gets $100million for just turning up and taking the test,’ Halperin said.

‘If he is as innocent as he says he is, he passes and it clears his name. It is a great way for him to vindicate himself in 45 minutes.

‘So it is a win-win for him and he would be able to make a donation to victims of child sex trafficking. It would make him look great. If he is hiding nothing then he should do it.

‘Nobody has ever made that amount of money for 45 minutes work,’ he added. ‘And we will provide him with hair and make-up!’

Halperin has made movies and documentaries in the past using certified polygraph tests to try to establish the credibility of witnesses.

‘I have specialized in doing broadcast polygraphs for years, working with some of the world’s leading polygraph examiners,’ he said.

‘I am open-minded about the result. I leave the door open for him to clear his name. I am bypassing this ‘he says, she says’ and cutting to the chase. A polygraph test will be 99.999 per cent accurate. I want to give him the best shot possible to clear his name and make it worthwhile – pass or fail. I am giving him a chance in front of the whole world to clear his name once and for all.’

Halperin says that Giuffre reached out to him too, offering to take the test for a TV special 

The American Polygraph Association, the industry body dedicated to the use of evidence-based scientific methods for credibility assessment, has estimated the accuracy of the polygraph to be 87%.

A 2003 National Academy of Sciences study of the lie detector tests found them to be less accurate, with some scientists estimating 75%.

Halperin says that Giuffre reached out to him too, offering to take the test for a TV special.

‘Roberts said ‘If he does not do it I will do it for free.’ I have it in writing.

‘My team is intent on moving forward. We will position this as the most important polygraph ever.

‘I am giving him this last chance. Once it hits the courts and he is in the dock and stuff is flying about, he is toast.

‘If he does this test and passes,’ Halperin claims, ‘it is admissible in court. There is nothing she can do. I have the answer for Prince Andrew. Rather than spending $50million on lawyers, with this offer he is making money rather than spending it.

‘I have the best recipe for him; $100m is a great deal for him. And if he really cares about the monarchy and his name, there is no other way to clear his name. Why the hell would he not do this?’

Despite Halperin’s confidence that his proposed lie detector test could affect Giuffre’s New York federal lawsuit against the prince, generally polygraph results are inadmissible as evidence in federal courts. But they are admissible in civil courts at the discretion of the judge.

Halperin told DailyMail.com that he would welcome the Duke’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson to join him too for the test. ‘Fergie took money from Epstein and I am offering her $12million if she takes a polygraph too. She knows a lot,’ he said 

Halperin says he would welcome the Duke’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson to join him too for the test.

‘Fergie took money from Epstein and I am offering her $12million if she takes a polygraph too. She knows a lot. We’d ask what her relationship with Epstein was like, and why she met with him as he was a convicted sex offender.’

Ferguson admitted in 2017 to letting the convicted pedophile pay off a $24,000 debt to her personal assistant, and publicly apologized in a letter to London’s Evening Standard newspaper.

‘I abhor pedophilia and any sexual abuse of children and know that this was a gigantic error of judgment on my behalf,’ she wrote. ‘I am just so contrite I cannot say. Whenever I can, I will repay the money and will have nothing ever to do with Jeffrey Epstein ever again.’

Halperin claims the capital for his offer was raised from ‘an investment group’ who have backed his work over recent years.

‘One of the guys is a multi-millionaire, whose daughter was raped aged 14. He believes Andrew is guilty and is intent on putting up the money. Since then I have had interest from media outlets saying if you can get him to do it, we will do a pay per view event. The money is not an issue. The money we have. It is now a case of getting him to the table.’

Halperin highlighted Andrew’s controversial friendship with Epstein in his recent book, Controversy: Sex Lies And Dirty Money.

He says he is the only journalist to have interviewed the late pedophile in depth, and describes him as a ‘sociopath’.

‘What he said was unreal,’ the documentary producer said. ‘He said he wished he would have lived a hundred years ago, because there were no laws and he could have dated 12-year-olds. Absolutely he said those words. And he went much further.

‘He did tell me he was very close to Prince Andrew. He said they were like ‘brothers’. He said that Andrew was his ‘main man’. I never really understood what he meant until much later.

‘Andrew was his conduit to credibility getting all these rich people and celebrities in his camp.

‘I am not saying he is guilty, but I do have new people in the book, who come out against him and make accusations,’ he told DailyMail.com.

‘It is obvious the truth hurts and that is why they are having a problem with it. I leave the door open in the book even though new victims came forward. I leave the door open to clear his name, and he has refused.’

Halperin said he believes that Giuffre filing a lawsuit against Andrew shook the Royal household to its core, drawing international attention back to Andrew and away from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s row with the family

‘When Oprah did the interview with Meghan and Harry, Buckingham Palace was popping champagne. I kid you not,’ Halperin said. ‘It was the biggest misdirection event since Houdini. They made Meghan a scapegoat and she did not know she was being played’

Halperin said he believes that Giuffre filing a lawsuit against Andrew shook the Royal household to its core, drawing international attention back to Andrew and away from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s row with the family.

The bombastic author claims he has an insight into the family through ‘well-placed sources’, and even lived with a member of royal family household staff.

‘When Oprah did the interview with Meghan and Harry, Buckingham Palace was popping champagne. I kid you not,’ he said.

‘It was the biggest misdirection event since Houdini. They made Meghan a scapegoat and she did not know she was being played.

‘They wanted Meghan in the spotlight to let her complain, because the Andrew allegations could potentially take down Buckingham Palace and the monarchy if proven true.

‘Charles is really furious behind the scenes with Andrew. 

Halperin says that his legal team have urged him to keep quiet about its dealings with Andrew and palace staff directly.

‘I am not allowed to comment on the communication I have had with them, because my lawyer has advised me not to.’
