Britain's Prince Andrew has been linked to a second powerful tycoon accused of child sex trafficking and rape after fresh allegations have emerged against a wealthy fashion executive.

Peter Nygard, a top fashion exec with a net worth of $900 million, is accused of drugging and raping ten underage teenage girls at his luxury Bahamas compound.

Ten women have filed a class-action lawsuit against Nygard over sexual assaults they allegedly suffered as children, with some of the alleged victims as young as 14.

The sexual assaults allegedly went on for decades at Nygard's mansion in the Bahamas under the guise that he would help the young teens with their modeling careers.

The lawsuit, filed in the Southern District of New York, claims Nygard plied his subjects with alcohol and drugs before they were violently assaulted, raped and sodomized.

The case links Prince Andrew to another high profile magnate accused of sexually abusing underage girls, as the Queen's second-born son has also stayed at Nygard's mansion.

According to the lawsuit, Nygard “recruited, lured and enticed young, impressionable and often ­impoverished children and women, with cash payments and false ­promises of lucrative modeling ­opportunities to assault, rape and sodomize them.”

Andrew, the Duke of York, has already faced intense scrutiny for his relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein

In the latest Nygard case, the teenagers have launched a class-action lawsuit in Manhattan federal court, claiming to have been a part of what was essentially a "child sex trafficking ring."

The suit alleges the girls would be entertained at so-called "pamper parties" where Nygard would have bartenders at his Mayan-themed vacation home spike their drinks with the "date-rape drug," known as Rohypnol. 

Nygard’s staff were instructed to find young women for the weekly parties, the lawsuit claims. 

As guests arrived and checked-in, their details would be placed into a database with the photos sent to Nygard to look over.  

Nygard would then use this information to "select his potential victims for the night," the suit states.

The lawsuit details how one of the victims who was 15-years-old at the time had been taken to Lyford Cay, Nygard’s estate, which was once featured on the TV show Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.

During the evening, Nygard allegedly tried to anally sodomize her before raping her and then asking her to defecate and urinate in his mouth in a bizarre sexual fetish known as Coprophilia.  

The filing states: "Nygard offered her $5,000 prior to raping her, and later offered her $10,000 to defecate in his mouth."

Another of the complainants tells how her encounter with Nygard began with him showing her pornography. 

Nygard then asked her to use a sex toy on him and when it ended, he raped her, "causing her extraordinary trauma and pain."

"This horrific episode is just one of many like it detailed in the complaint against Nygard and his business entities by 10 brave women," states a press release about the lawsuit.

"The class-action lawsuit accuses Nygard of sex trafficking and rape — all financed and facilitated by his family of corporations and their employees."

Ten women in total, now aged between 18 to 36, have detailed their alleged encounters.

Nine of the women are from the Bahamas while one is from the United States, although none have had their names revealed in the suit. 

Three of the women were 14-years-old at the time of the alleged rapes which took place between 2008 and 2015, while three others were 15.

All appear to share commonalities.

Usually, the girls would be invited to Nygard’s home where offers of drinks or drugs would be made.

What follows would be a suggestion to head to a hot tub or bedroom where rape would then occur. 

While Nygard has been accused of sexual misconduct and rape in the past, these new complaints go further in alleging that he was able to escape punishment by "resorting to violence, intimidation, bribery, and payoffs’ to silence his alleged victims," according to the suit. 

When suspicions were raised by local authorities in the Bahamas, it’s alleged Nygard would get away with such behavior by offering everyone from cops to government officials bribes for them to turn a blind eye.

It also alleges Nygard "initiated a scheme to purchase police protection and political cover in the Bahamas by making regular payments of tens of thousands of dollars to law enforcement, government officials, regulators and even to a former cabinet minister who became the prime minister of the Bahamas."

The suit goes on to state how Nygard "employed a network of company employees under his direction" who would lure victims to his place, especially "young, vulnerable and impoverished Bahamian girls," the suit alleges.

It further claims "Nygard also paid people, using Nygard Company money, to intimidate his former ‘girlfriends’ by slashing their tires, committing arson, paying police to threaten to arrest them and by having them followed."

"The Nygard Companies fund all of Nygard’s ‘pamper parties’ by transferring cash from the company’s bank account in Canada and routing it through New York," the lawsuit says.

"Nygard’s destruction of innocent lives is immeasurable," it declares.

"When Nygard became aware of the investigation into his sex trafficking ring, he resorted to tactics of violence, intimidation, bribery, and payoffs to attempt to silence the victims and to continue his scheme."

Nygard, who according to the filing is worth approximately $900million, owns homes in New York, California, and Florida.

The suit alleges that women were moved around between the properties by private jet and that Nygard broke U.S. laws under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act in the process.

The filing asks for the Manhattan court to prohibit Mr. Nygard from engaging in unlawful acts, and for "damages in an amount to be determined at trial."

"The facts detailed in the complaint come from years of investigation," said Greg Gutzler, a New York lawyer. 

"After hearing these tragic stories, we were compelled to act."

"We know many others were afraid to come forward initially and hope that this lawsuit will pave the way for them to also seek justice," Mr. Gutzler said in a press release. 

"The facts, in this case, represent the tip of the iceberg of an international sex trafficking ring that ends today."

There is a 10-year statute of limitations for cases like such as this under New York law.

The lawsuit requests, however, that the scope be extended because the complainants "were impeded because of a combination of force, threats of force, shame, embarrassment, fear, political and law enforcement corruption, weak laws that are rarely enforced to protect the victim and bribery."

A spokesperson for Nygard told the New York Post that the lawsuit was "the latest in a 10+ year string of attempts to try to destroy the reputation of a man through false statements."

"The allegations are completely false, without foundation and are vigorously denied,"  Ken Frydman said in a statement.

"Peter Nygard looks forward to fully exposing this scam and once and for all clearing his name."
