(Newser) – Elizabeth Edwards’ trash talking of Rielle Hunter is backfiring—Hunter now wants a DNA test to prove John Edwards is the father of her baby, the National Enquirer reports. Rielle is so infuriated by his and Elizabeth’s actions that she’s throwing her loyalty to him out the window,” said a source, adding that Hunter was at first willing to protect the former senator because she believed they had a future together.

“Rielle wants the paternity of her daughter Frances finally established,” the source continued. “It could ruin John for good because even after admitting the affair, he vehemently denied being the father!”
