The Duchess of York was allegedly caught on tape plotting to sell access to her ex-husband, Prince Andrew, for 500,000 pounds ($720,000), says a British newspaper that set up a sting.
The News of the World on Sunday said it filmed “greedy Sarah Ferguson,” 50, taking a 40,000-pound ($57,000) down payment from its undercover reporter posing as a businessman.
The paper posted more than 4 minutes of video in which Ferguson, widely known as Fergie, is seen remarking “Look after me and he’ll look after you.” She said the full sum would result in “open doors.”
The duchess said Andrew would know nothing of the deal and that he would never take money himself as he is “whiter than white.”
However, she is seen telling the reporter, the money would open “all the channels, whatever you need, whatever you want, and then that’s what and then you meet Andrew and that’s fine.”
