I know you’re disappointed. I am. But like John Edwards political career, his sex tape with mistress Rielle Hunter is doomed to wallow in obscurity. The court has ordered the only copy(s) destroyed along with other personal items Rielle Hunter left hanging around aide Andrew Young’s house after she moved out following the birth of her and John Edwards’ love child.
The purported sex tape of former presidential candidate John Edwards and his mistress will be destroyed within 30 days after a lawsuit over who owned the tape was settled Thursday.
Rielle Hunter sued former Edwards aide Andrew Young and his wife in 2010 over the tape and other personal items the couple said she left in a box of trash while they were helping her hideout as the former North Carolina senator ran for the White House. Hunter lived with the Youngs while she was pregnant with Edwards’ baby, and Young initially said he was the father.
In the settlement, the Youngs agreed to give up their claim on the tape and other property, which has been held in the vault of a North Carolina courthouse. Hunter has long wanted the tapes destroyed.
