Hillary Clinton 'claimed Bill was addicted to sex because he was abused by his mother' reported alleges in explosive memoirs
In the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, Hillary Clinton claimed that her husband was addicted to sex because he was abused by his mother, a journalist said.
The then First Lady allegedly made the claims during a 1999 interview with Lucinda Franks, but the Pulitzer prize-winner declined to use them for the article she was working on.
The revelation is one of a series of sensational claims made in a series of new books being published in anticipation that Clinton will make a presidential run in 2016.
The latest revelations have been included in Franks' memoir, which includes remarks allegedly made by Hillary Clinton during their interview, the Daily News has reported.
In her book, Timeless: Love, Morgenthau and Me, Franks claims that Clinton blamed her mother-in-law Virginia Kelley for damaging her son.
Clinton claimed that Kelley, who died in 1994, hurt her son 'in ways you wouldn't believe' and, while not giving details about the alleged abuse, claimed it had been responsible for her husband's affair.
