Missouri governor denies blackmailing the woman he was having an affair with

The ex-husband said Greitens slapped his ex-wife after she told him she and her then-husband had sex, the anonymous man says through his attorney, Albert Watkins. "It's as bad as it gets when someone takes advantage of something".

Greitens' attorney, Jim Bennett, says in an email statement to The Associated Press that the affair is a personal matter "that presents no matters of public or legal interest". She told him that Greitens used some light bondage during their sexual encounter, including a blindfold - and then took a picture without her consent.

The woman allegedly involved did not comment on the record to the station, which released its report late Wednesday after Greitens gave his State of the State speech. This was a deeply personal mistake. "Eric took responsibility, and we dealt with this together honestly and privately", they wrote in a statement shared on their individual Twitter accounts.

The couple stated that, while some people may not be able to forgive the affair, they were grateful for anyone who could "find it in [their] heart" to accept the rushed apology. "I want the media and those who wish to peddle gossip to stay from me and my children".
