Edwards mistress wins ownership of sex tape


Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- The former mistress of John Edwards has won ownership of a sex tape she filmed with the former presidential candidate as he was running for the White House.

Rielle Hunter sued former Edwards aide Andrew Young and his wife in 2010 over the intimate tape and other personal items the couple claimed she abandoned. Hunter lived with the Youngs in 2007, while she was pregnant with Edwards' baby.

In a court settlement filed Thursday, the Youngs agreed to give up their claim on the property, which has been held in the vault of a North Carolina courthouse. The Youngs also agreed not to talk publicly about the tape.

A book published by Andrew Young has described what's on the tape.

I would have loved to have seen this...

I'll bet John's hair was perfect even while doing the deed. The tape would be a masterpiece if he had a mustache while making it.


She made the tape to bribe Johnny boy. She had a kid for another 18 years of cash. She is as much of a sleaze as he is.

I would rather have hot pokers inserted in my ears than see John Edwards storming the cotton gin. That's something you can not un-see.

I wonder how long it will be

I wonder how long it will be before she sells it to the highest bidder.

Rielle Hunter

Ms. Hunter's attorneys claim she got everything she wanted, they are lying. Check out Paragraph 75 of the public amended complaint - I did after looking at Young's statement. She sought a copyright on the tape - she didn't want to destroy it - she wanted to sell it!!


Why would you or anybody else take time to read the complaint? You sure caught them in a big "LIE". Maybe she wanted to have the copyright so she could try to have it removed if it got on the internet.

Rather odd, wouldn't you say?

Regardless of whose tape it is or was, exactly WHY would SHE be keeping this tape to begin with?

I've known several women who participated shall we say lapses of judgment that can be documented by video or photographic evidence? In every case I'm aware of, either the male participant was the perv who wanted to keep it, or, if the female demanded it, she immediately destroyed it upon receipt. What woman keeps a tape of her doing things she wouldn't want her mother to know about? You want your NOK to find THAT when they're cleaning out your apartmnent??!!

So you have to wonder if this was being kept as insurance marker against financial abandonment by Edwards the Sleeze, or if Ms. Hunter is a crazy-wild, kink-queen who enjoys watching porn...especially when she's in it!

Ten buck says she's the one in charge and lil' Johnny is a whiney submissive...

I'm no fan of Edwards, but

I'm no fan of Edwards, but what this Andrew Young was doing here was just plain creepy. It didn't belong to him and his whole entanglement in this mess of Edwards is just plain weird.

Ok so she got the video back

Doesnt mean he hasnt made at least one copy. How long till one of those sleezy firms out in California has it for sale online or something..
