Andrew Young, the man that once claimed he was the father of Rielle Hunter’s child claims John Edwards is the real father and that Edwards promised Rielle he’d marry her after his wife Elizabeth died. Read more on this crazy story below.
Young says John Edwards orked with his campaign finance chairman to hide the fact that he had the affair and had fathered a child.
Andrew Young stated that John Edwards told Rielle Hunter that they would marry after his wife, Elizabeth Edwards, (who had cancer) died. Now isn’t that sweet?
Edwards reportedly told Rielle they would have their wedding on a rooftop in New York and he’d have the Dave Matthews Band make an appearance.
Edwards said the affair with Hunter ended in 2006. That year, Edwards’ political action committee paid Hunter’s video production firm $100,000 for work. Then the committee paid another $14,086 on April 1, 2007.
And on the same day, the Edwards presidential campaign put injected $14,034.61 into the PAC for a “furniture purchase,” according to federal election records.
Edwards adamantly denied during an interview with ABC News last summer that he had fathered a child with Hunter, and he welcomed a paternity test. His wife, Elizabeth, has said she doesn’t know if her husband is the father.
Andrew Young said in 2007 that he was the child’s father. Hunter said around the same time that Young was the father and the birth certificate does not list a father’s name.
Joyce Fitzpatrick, a spokeswoman for Edwards and his attorney, Wade Smith, said that Edwards would not comment Saturday. Smith has said Edwards may make a statement at some point in the future about the paternity of Frances Quinn Hunter, who is 19-months old, but there was no timetable for that.
Young hasn’t spoken publicly since saying he was the father in 2007 and has repeatedly ignored reporter requests for interviews.
Andrew Young said Edwards knew from the start that he was the father of the child and tried to conceal that. Young says Edwards pleaded with Young to claim paternity and even inquired about locating a doctor that would fake the results of a paternity test.
