Rumors have long circulated that while Boris Johnson was mayor, Boris Johnson was giving an ex-model business benefits. But apparently there was more, as the woman now suggested.
American businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri has admitted to having an affair with Boris Johnson, according to the Daily Mail. The British Prime Minister was mayor of London at the time. He was later charged with illegally allowing the ex-model to receive funding and participate in travel.
An independent regulator investigated these allegations and decided not to investigate last May. The authority did not rule out an affair.

“That is obvious.”
Arcuri itself has only given hints so far. When asked by the Daily Mail if she was having an affair with Johnson, she replied more specifically, according to the paper, “That goes without saying.” Johnson was mayor of the British capital from 2008 to 2016 and was married to Marina Wheeler at the time.
In a BBC interview a year ago, Arcuri had indicated that her relationship with Johnson was not purely platonic. In another media report, she confirmed that she saved Johnson on her cell phone under the name “Alexander the Great”.
