Stories of a relationship between one time US Presidential hopeful John Edwards and Rielle Hunter took on a whole new life heading into this weekend following a security guard's disclosure to the Fox News network.

Beverly Hills hotel security guard told FOXNews.com he intervened this week between a man he identified as former Sen. John Edwards and tabloid reporters who chased down the former presidential hopeful after what they're calling a rendezvous with his mistress and love child, The Huffington Post chimed Friday night.

Rumors initially circulated last December that Rielle Hunter was carrying John Edwards love child.

Headlines roared:


"The woman linked to Presidential candidate John Edwards in a cheating scandal is more than six months pregnant and telling a close confidante that Edwards is the father of her unborn child, The NATIONAL ENQUIRER has learned exclusively."

The ENQUIRER also claimed, not only that Rielle was pregnant, but she was also living in Chapel Hill, N.C. in a gated community, just a few streets away from Andrew Young, who had been a key official in Edwards' campaign.

Just this week, the Beverly Hilton Hotel guard said he encountered a shaken and ashen-faced Edwards - whom he did not immediately recognize - in a hotel men's room early Tuesday morning in a literal tug-of-war with reporters on the other side of the door.

"What are they saying about me?" the guard said Edwards asked.

"His face just went totally white," the guard said, when Edwards was told the reporters were shouting out questions about Edwards and Ms. Hunter.

The guard said he escorted Edwards, who was not a registered guest at the hotel, out of the building after 2 a.m.

Edwards' wife Elizabeth, whom many have credited as being one of the driving forces behind Edwards' campaign, announced in March that her breast cancer had re-emerged after going into remission following a 2004 diagnosis.

Hunter has said that the father of her child is former Edwards campaign official Andrew Young. The 41-year-old married father of three has also said he is the father.

John Edwards was listed with 10/1 odds of being selected the Democratic Vice Presidential running mate to Barack Obama at Sportsbook.com
