New York, November 5 : A newspaper editor is reportedly planning to have DNA tests conducted on a poopy diaper of American actress Rielle Hunter's baby to determine whether former presidential candidate John Edwards is his father.
Sources have revealed that David Perel, Editor of the National Enquirer, has grabbed one of the baby's poopy diapers.
According to them, Perel hopes to compare the infant's DNA with that of Edwards, who has denied paternity.
"All they need is a cup he drank from," the New York Daily News quoted an insider as saying.
As to what Perel has to say about the matter, the editor said: "I will neither confirm nor deny possession of a dirty diaper. But I would like to do a DNA test."
There are also reports that Hunter "is writing a tell-all book now that the man who has been funneling cash to her has died."
It is said that Edwards' former national finance chairman, Fred Baron, had confirmed before his death last month that he was sending money to Hunter.
The amount was reported to around 15,000 dollars a month.
Hunter is said to be worried that the "hush money" will dry up after Baron's death.
An insider, however, said: "Rielle views the book as her personal insurance policy."
Hunter and Edwards were unavailable for comment.
