Fergie, Duchess of York, apologizes for newspaper scandal

Posted on

Sarah Ferguson, a.k.a. Fergie, has apologized for camera footage of the Duchess of York offering to give an undercover reporter access to ex-husband Prince Andrew for $40,000 in cash and $718,500 in wire transfers. “I very deeply regret the situation and the embarrassment caused,” she said in a statement. “It is true that my financial situation is under stress, however, that is no excuse for a serious lapse in judgment and I am very sorry that this has happened.” The tape, which was filmed Tuesday, features Ferguson offering the access, and saying the prince, “never does accept a penny for anything,” Reuters reports.
