Edwards Mistress Ixnays Paternity Test


John Edwards has denied being the father of Rielle Hunter's baby girl, saying the timing of their affair precludes him being the dad. He offered to take a paternity test, but Rielle conveniently says there won't be one! That was easy!

The National Enquirer claims Rielle has gone into hiding after she released a brief statement. The Enquirer cites sources saying she "doesn't want to do any more damage to John Edwards" by agreeing to a paternity test.

On Friday, Edwards finally confessed to cheating on his wife Elizabeth, but maintained that his relationship with Rielle ended in 2006. Frances Quinn, Rielle's daughter, was born in February. No father is listed on the birth certificate. Edwards also claims to be unaware of payments made to Hunter by his associates.
