Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards promised his mistress Rielle Hunter they will reunite ... once his cancer-stricken wife dies.
That's according to the latest report from the National Enquirer, which first broke the scandal of their affair - and possible love child - in late 2007.
Since then, the celebrity gossip tabloid has never let up, forcing Edwards to finally admit the affair August 8. But many, many questions linger.
The magazine also reports that Rielle Hunter refuses to make John Edwards take a paternity test, which he offered (perhaps facetiously) to take in his recent "tell-all" interview, because she fears it will jeopardize their future together.
John Edwards denies he is the father of Hunter's daughter, Frances Quinn Hunter, who was born on February 27.
Former aide Andrew Young has claimed paternity (and virtually vanished) while another Edwards associate, Fred Baron, has been paying Hunter off.
But Edwards remains in contact with Rielle Hunter even now.
The North Carolina politician called her after his August 8 confession on ABC, reportedly telling her: "We'll be together when Elizabeth is gone."
