A tycoon with links to Prince Andrew has been accused of raping teenagers after luring them to his Bahamas mansion. 

The 78-year-old Peter Nygard had allegedly told girls as young as 14 that he could make them models before he would rape them and force them into doing 'deviant acts'. Andrew had visited Nygard at his estate in 2000 after the designer had agreed to out-of-court settlements with three employees who had accused him of sexual harassment. 

The prince and his former wife Sarah Ferguson had stayed at Nygard Cay close to Nassau along with his daughters- Beatrice and Eugenie. The new case means more embarrassment for Prince Andrew who had stepped back from public life last year following a backlash over his relationship with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, Daily Mail reports.

As per a 99-page lawsuit filed against him in New York, Nygard had used his ten-bedroom mansion to host 'pamper parties' for teenage girls at shopping malls and fashion events. He and his employees would tell the girls that they could become models but would lure them with wine and drugs after which Nygard would rape them. 

Three of his alleged victims were 14-year-old virgins who were left scared and humiliated post the attacks. The case has been brought forward on the behalf of ten women who alleged that they were raped by Nygard. 

Eight were teenage girls while two were adult employees who worked on the Nassau estate. According to lawyers, Nygard ran a 'decades-long sex trafficking scheme' that had destroyed innocent lives. They also shared that he used his company's private jet to take his victims with him to London, Germany, Italy, and China.
