Lima said, “I wasn’t really interested like that but I did go up there and one thing led to another.” She also revealed that Henry liked to take bubble baths and even brought bubble bath when he visited her condo.
Daily Mail reports Lima as saying, “He never gave me anything, but one time I was really stressed out about money so he did cover my rent.” She said that Henry took the money from an ATM so that his wife would not find out.
A spokesperson for Fox News said, “We recently became aware of Ed’s personal issues and he’s taking some time off to work things out.”
