Surprise, surprise, Rielle Hunter, John Edwards’ mistress won’t seek a paternity test to prove whether he’s the father of her 5-month-old child, her lawyer said Saturday.
In a statement he provided to the Washington Post, attorney Robert Gordon said that Rielle Hunter is a private citizen and that she will not comment further on the media frenzy sparked Friday when Edwards publicly acknowledged the affair.
“She wishes to maintain her privacy” and the privacy of her child, Gordon said in the statement. “Furthermore, Rielle will not participate in DNA testing or any other invasion of her … privacy now or in the future.”
Gordon said Saturday that he would not immediately be releasing the statement to anyone else and will not be doing interviews about it.
After months of denying the affair, Edwards admitted making “a serious error in judgment” in 2006 when he had an affair with Hunter, a filmmaker who worked making videos for his presidential campaign.
Call me cynical, but I am sure that there is some ‘indirect’ transfer of monies going on. Afterall Rielle isn’t working and she has to live and provide for her child.
What’s the next move for Rielle – Europe?
