Washington: A 30-year-old man claiming to be former US President Bill Clinton’s love child has threatened to sue him unless he agrees to undergo a fresh DNA test.
“I am simply seeking the truth. I respectfully request DNA from President Clinton to determine paternity. I have had no response to my requests, so today I have authorized my attorneys.. to file a lawsuit in New York state to get… an order for a supervised test,” Danney Williams was quoted as saying in a Daily Mail report.
In order to garner Clinton’s attention, Williams had earlier opened a Facebook page with the name Danney Williams-Clinton. He claimed that Clinton had fathered him with his prostitute mother named Bobbie.
This is not the first time Clinton’s name has been associated with Bobbie. In 1984, Bobbie was interviewed by The Globe, in which she mentioned that she first met Clinton when she was 24-year-old and was in a relationship with him.
She said Clinton paid $200 to her for sex. Bobbie further added that she and Clinton regularly had sex — sometimes alone and sometimes with other female partners.
Eventually Bobbie got pregnant and claimed that it was Clinton’s child. She even confronted Clinton about it, but he refuted the claims.
In her interview, Bobbie said that Clinton rubbed her belly and said, “Girl, that can’t be my baby. But I knew it was. I just had this kind of woman’s feeling that this was his child”.
Bobbie’s son was raised by her sister. She even forced Clinton to take a DNA test and also spoke to his wife Hillary about it.
A DNA test was thereafter conducted but it failed to establish that Danney and Clinton were related. However, there are rumours about the authenticity of the tests.
In 2013, Danney himself gave an interview to The Globe in which he said that he wanted to meet Clinton face-to-face. He also said,”I’d like to have a relationship with Chelsea, too. She’s my half-sister.”
