More than two decades after she became a household name for alleging she had a 12-year affair with Bill Clinton, Gennifer Flowers has made yet more shocking claims about the former president.
Flowers, who enjoyed a lucrative modelling and acting career as well as top book sales following her announcement in 1992, has claimed that Clinton called her as recently as 2005, begging to see her. Speaking with WGNO, Flowers, 62, said was at home alone in Louisiana following her divorce when her phone rang.
‘I picked up the phone and it was him,’ she told host Susan Roesgen. ‘And he wanted to come by my house and talk to me. I was taken aback; that was the last thing I expected.’ She added that, even when she refused to allow him to visit, he persisted.
‘I said, “No you can’t come over here”,’ she continued. ‘He said, “I’ll put on a hoodie and I’ll jog up there” and I said, “No, I want you to leave me alone”. And that was that.’ Former president Clinton has yet to respond to a request for comment from MailOnline over the claims.
The call allegedly came decades after Flowers claimed they had a years-long affair while Clinton was governor of Arkansas. He later claimed they only ever had one sexual encounter in the 1970s.
But in another bombshell on WGNO, Flowers claimed Clinton had in fact discussed revealing the affair in the 1990s as he was struggling to achieve the recognition he needed to win the presidency. ‘I made him a household name over night,’ she told WGNO. ‘We had had that discussion. He said, “My problem right now is that no one knows who I am. I need that name recognition”. ‘He went on to talk about the other candidates and the advantages they had… When my story came out, he was a household name.’
