Throughout recent months, Prince Andrew has faced criticism for a variety of reasons, including his one-time friendship with financier Jeffery Epstein. Now, a new report has suggested that the Duke of York is experiencing yet another undesirable situation due to the fact that he and ex-wife, Sarah, Duchess of York, are now reportedly facing new legal action.

According to Page Six, the former couple is facing the new hurdle as a result of allegedly owing more than $8 million to the seller of a luxury Swiss home that they jointly purchased in 2014. The spacious home, which features seven bedrooms and is located in the Verbier ski resort in Southwest Switzerland, is reportedly worth $22.5 million.

As stated by the outlet, Le Temps newspaper reports that the members of the British royal family failed to make a payment that was due by the end of 2019. Originally, they owed roughly $6.1 million, but now, interest has bumped the amount up to $8.2 million. The owner decided to move forward with the aforementioned legal action after not receiving the payment for months.

Etude du Ritz, the law firm representing the seller, has yet to comment on the matter. However, a spokeswoman for the Yorks spoke to the regional newspaper.

"There is a dispute between the two parties in this matter,” she said, adding that the details in the contract were “subject to a confidentiality agreement."

Following the news, Buckingham Palace responded to the new issue that the Duke and Duchess of York are facing. "This isn't something we would comment on," the Palace said regarding the royals, who divorced in 1996.

Aside from the new step, Prince Andrew has been in the news lately due to the ongoing investigation into Epstein's past. Not only has it been said that he could potentially face additional legal trouble from Epstein's accusers if he is not "released" in certain documents, but others have also alleged that he "had knowledge" of certain events and have requested access to potentially-incriminating details.

Furthermore, a new book, titled "Relentless Pursuit: My Fight for the Victims of Jeffrey Epstein," was previously released, while a new Netflix docu-series, called "Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich," is set to premiere later this year.
