For 12 years, former President Bill Clinton and Gennifer Flowers were allegedly engaged in an affair while Clinton was the governor of Arkansas. It’s been about two decades since the news came to light, but Flowers is now forcing herself back into the news by claiming Clinton told her his wife, Hillary, was bisexual, according to The Daily Mail.
Flowers called Clinton “the love of her life,” and claimed that the two would still be together if it weren’t for the birth of his daughter, Chelsea, who’s now 33 years old.
“Bill and I would be together today if it wasn’t for politics. It was me, Bill and Hillary. Then they had Chelsea and the stakes got too high,” Flowers said. “I just know what Bill told me and that was that he was aware that Hillary was bisexual and he didn’t care. He should know. He said Hillary had [performed oral sex on more women] than he had.”
Flowers said that political pressure was the only thing keeping the Clintons together, adding, “The whole experience changed my life forever and everything went in a different direction. I don’t regret telling the truth. It was a defining moment in American culture absolutely.”
And even though Flowers and Hillary Clinton were in love with the same man, the president’s former lover said she would support his wife if she decided to run for the highest office in the United States in 2016.
“The support I would give Hillary is as a woman. I’m one of those women who in so many aspects of my professional and personal life I’ve been out there making strides for women and allowing them to go down roads in which they were not welcome,” Flowers claimed.
Clinton would be the clear frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination if she decided to run, but the former Secretary of State has remained mum on the subject. However, Flowers claimed Hillary stayed with her husband partly so she could eventually become president.
“Absolutely that was her reason for sticking by him and he’s going to stick by her because he owes her that,” she said. “I would have thrown his clothes out on the front lawn but that’s just me.”
