JENNIFER Arcuri broke her silence to face questions on her alleged sexual relationship with Boris Johnson.
The ex-model, 34, spoke exclusively to Good Morning Britain from Los Angeles on Monday October 7. What did she say?
What did Jennifer Arcuri say about her alleged affair with Boris Johnson?
Jennifer, 34, told Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid:”Would you like me to ask about your sex life?
“If I looked a different way, If I was a man, I wouldn’t be objectified.”
Susanna told her she understood questions about her private life and sex life “may seem awkward”.
But she insisted it was important for Jennifer to answer because Boris is a “man of enormous power and influence”.
Jennifer replied: “I think we’re forgetting that Boris is extremely personable. It wasn’t like he singled me out, he is
there to talk to anybody who gets in his face enough, and he is always a really good friend.
“I think it’s unfortunate that a good friend… now I’m dragged into the middle of this horrific scandal and the answer I give will be weaponised against this man.
“It’s really categorically no one’s business what private life we had or different had.”
Jennifer on the pole-dancing pole in her flat
Ms Arcuri said the PM “asked me to show him a few things” on her pole and did not deny he ever used it.
She said: “A handful of times. Five times? Ten times? I haven’t sat here and counted.
When asked whether the then-London Mayor used the pole, she said: “I’m never, never going to tell you that.
“I’m just having a little fun. The pole was just a simple fun thing. The pole sat in the living room, he saw the pole.
“I asked him to have a go. He sat down with his tea and started muttering.”
Did Jennifer explain how she met Boris?
Describing the first time she saw him at the British Venture Capital summit in October 2011, she said: “I turn around and this guy walks in the room.
“His hair is all dishevelled and his shirt is untucked. He has papers that look like I have pulled them out of my pre-school backpack.
“But he turned the room of men into howling schoolgirls. It was electrifying – to see that kind of personality to change the room.
“I was like ‘who is this guy, I need to say hi’.”
She said later persuaded him to speak at one of her business events, adding: “On the bus he had a book of short stories.
