Rumors that Bill Clinton fathered a child with a prostitute have re-emerged, and the 30-year-old man is requesting that the former president recognize him as a son.
Danney Williams started a Facebook page in December, under the new name Danney Williams-Clinton. His goal was to grab the Clintons’ attention. It worked.
The claims that Danney is the former president’s love child aren’t new, but they haven’t been proven false either.
A DNA test reportedly conducted by Star magazine in 1999 said that Danney couldn’t be Clinton’s son but there remain questions about the test’s precision.
Danney’s story first surfaced in 1992, while Clinton was gearing up to run for president.
The Globe interviewed Danney’s mother, a former prostitute named Bobbie Ann Williams, who told the story of how she allegedly met and began a relationship with Clinton in 1984.
She says Clinton went out for a run one day in Little Rock, when he jogged by her housing project and introduced himself to her. She was 24 years old at the time.
A few days later, Clinton allegedly jogged by the housing project again and paid Bobbie $200 for her to have sex with him behind some bushes.
After that, Bobbie says that she and Clinton regularly had sex, sometimes alone, sometimes with other female partners.
Eventually, Bobbie became pregnant and she suspected that it was Clinton’s child.
But when she told the governor, he allegedly laughed in her face.
‘He rubbed my big 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 told The Globe.
In 2013, Danney gave an interview with The Globe, explaining his reasoning for wanting to meet Clinton.
‘I read he doesn’t have long to live and I want to meet him face to face before he dies,’ Williams said. ‘I just want to shake his hand and say “Hi Dad,” before he dies. I’d like to have a relationship with Chelsea, too. She’s my half-sister.’
