RALEIGH – Rielle Hunter, John Edwards' former mistress, is now requesting all the profits from Edwards' former aide Andrew Young's tell-all book “The Politician” and any movie made from its pages.
The memoir details Young's efforts to help the former presidential candidate conceal his affair with hunter and his paternity of her daughter.
Court documents show Hunter claims pictures and other personal property Young used in the book were private property and used illegally.
Hunter spoke privately under oath in a Charlotte courtroom last month. Young was also there.
Hunter is suing Young in an attempt to gain every copy of a tape she says shows her and Edwards having sex. Hunter also wants photos from a laptop and a computer file.
