Gennifer Flowers claimed during an interview with WGNO that Bill Clinton called her as recently as 2005 and wanted to come visit. The infamous mistress who allegedly engaged in a 12-year affair with Clinton is now a 62-year-old single lady living in Louisiana.
Flowers claims that she received a phone call from Bill Clinton not long after her divorce. Gennifer had this to say about the alleged conversation with the former president to radio host Susan Roesgen:
“I picked up the phone and it was him. And he wanted to come by my house and talk to me. I was taken aback; that was the last thing I expected. I said, ‘No you can’t come over here.’ 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.”
Gennifer Flowers also claims that she and Clinton has talked about revealing the affair in the 1990s while he was allegedly struggling to get the attention and recognition he needed to win the White House. Flowers had this to say about the affair headlines:
“I made him a household name overnight. 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. I really thought that coming out and telling the truth would set me free, but it didn’t.”
The Daily Mail requested a comment from President Bill Clinton regarding Gennifer Flowers’ claims, but has not yet been granted a response. Flowers previously claimed that she had an extended affair with Clinton while he was the Arkansas governor. Clinton reportedly claimed that he had only engaged in one sexual encounter with Gennifer during the 1970s.
