Shady Ex-Senator John Edwards Finally Publicly Acknowledges Daughter He Fathered During Affair

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Babies, Baby Mama Drama, In White Folks News

After previously denying paternity, former North Carolina senator and Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards has finally come clean about the child he fathered after chopping down his campaign videographer Rielle Hunter. Look under the hood to read for his confession.

“I am Quinn’s father,” the confession begins. “I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves. I have been able to spend time with her during the past year and trust that future efforts to show her the love and affection she deserves can be done privately and in peace.”

Edwards’ statement continues:”It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me. I have been providing financial support for Quinn and have reached an agreement with her mother to continue providing support in the future. To all those I have disappointed and hurt these words will never be enough, but I am truly sorry.”

A rep told NBC that that Edwards privately acknowledged Quinn as his daughter long ago, but waited to make it public to protect his family. “He’s not doing this as a way to try to bring attention to himself…He’s doing this as a way…to begin to put this behind, not just him, but everybody else who’s been affected by this.”

Edwards is currently under investigation for spending campaign funds to cover up the affair, an accusation he has denied.

We’re not sure what’s dirtier, cheating on his cancer-stricken wife or lying about his outside kid. She’s about two, so it makes sense Edwards is fessing up now, kinda hard to deny a child old enough to run behind you screaming “Daddy!”SMH.

    I remember years ago my ex-boyfriend was cheating on me for a long minute. When I finally found out (through other people) he denied, denied, DENIED! I told him that I heard he had a child and he DENIED, DENIED, DENIED! Honestly, the cheating was messed up and all, but the worst thing was the fact that he denied his own flesh and blood. He denied his own SEED! all to keep up an innocent front…smh…

    Girl, I hate to sound morbid but he likely thought his wife wouldn’t have lasted this long and was banking on a ‘relationship’ possibly with this woman to pick up after she died. All his dirt is coming out though, and to think I really liked him at one point…

    Looks has nothig to do with it and you never know he may have had “short comings” that only she was willing to accept like this situation!

    Anyhow, he should have never said she wasn’t his or shunned her to begin with if there was a hair of a possibility that she could be his.

    he has no integrity and his wife stood by him through it all! Bless his wife one thing I will never understand since I am in a relationship with a white man is why us it so important for them to keep up a front with their family!

    Men might cheat but why does a woman heart always have to be broken because of your ignorance and if she got preggo by another man would he stay… I am on the fence on this one but still it is very unfair to a family and this is what dishonorable actions to get U…Plus this woman looks way worst then his wife anyway…

    Bingo! I’ve never found this side woman attractive at all. But, she looks like she’ll do anything in the bedroom though and honestly I’m sure that’s all he cared about….lmao!

  • MeMe

    I don’t see the media dragging him through the mud like they did Tiger…I’m just saying… double standard MoFos!!!!! UGH!

  • Caramel Cat

    Even though everyone feels sorry for Elizabeth Edwards I’m sure she’s eating crow right now. During her interview with Oprah she kept referring to that child as ‘IT’. That was p1.ssing me off something major. Yeah we know your husband was a cheating dog and you are hurt but that innocent child is not an ‘IT’….smh…
