LIZ HURLEY has dismissed allegations that she had a year-long affair with Bill Clinton while he was in office as “ludicrously silly”.

The model and actress said that claims she had sex with the former US president in the White House were “totally untrue”.

The allegations were reported by US showbusiness website Radar Online, which said that Mr Clinton flew Miss Hurley over from Britain for a four-day visit and eventually fell in love with her.

The report is based on an interview with disgraced film star Tom Sizemore, who has served nine months in jail on drugs charges.

The actor has previously claimed that he and Miss Hurley, 48, had a fling that lasted a few years after meeting on the set of 1992 action movie Passenger 57.

Writing on Twitter, Miss Hurley said: “Ludicrously silly stories about me & Bill Clinton. Totally untrue. In the hands of my lawyers. Yawn.”

The revelations are the first in what is expected to be a series of attacks on Mr Clinton”s past, in particular his infidelity, in the run-up to his wife Hillary”s expected run for the presidency in 2016.

In a rambling audio clip on Radar Online, Sizemore, 52, can be heard claiming that after his alleged relationship with Miss Hurley ended, he set her up with Mr Clinton. It is said to have happened in 1998, when Miss Hurley was Hugh Grant”s girlfriend.

It began, Sizemore alleges, when he went to a White House screening of the Steven Spielberg film Saving Private Ryan, in which he appears.

Sizemore claims Mr Clinton asked him for Miss Hurley's number, and when he resisted told him: “Give it to me. You dumb motherf****r. I”m the Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America. The buck stops here. Give me the damn number.” Mr Clinton, 67, supposedly called Miss Hurley immediately and tried to persuade her it was really him by saying: “Elizabeth, this is your Commander-in-Chief.”

He is said to have added: “Listen Elizabeth, this is the president! Don't have any time for this s***. I'm keeping the world from nuclear war all the time. I”m sending a plane to pick you up.”

Later that day Miss Hurley is said to have arrived at the White House and disappeared into a room with Mr Clinton. Sizemore says on the audio recording: “Bill turns to me and he goes, “I owe you one”.” Miss Hurley supposedly stayed at the White House for the next four days.

Sizemore claims he later asked her if Mrs Clinton was an issue and she told him: “No, they sleep in different bedrooms.”

He claims that Miss Hurley was told by Mr Clinton in 1998 that he and Mrs Clinton loved each other but had been having separate romantic lives for years.

The relationship supposedly continued for a year until Mr Clinton told Miss Hurley: “I don't do love and I'm beginning to think I might love you”, but nothing came of it.

The veracity of Sizemore's claim is almost impossible to verify, though even in the US the story was met with scepticism.

Similar attacks on the Clintons appear inevitable, however, and the US media has asked if Mr Clinton”s past will dog his wife.

He admitted to cheating on Mrs Clinton with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky but there are rumours that there were more women in his life.

Miss Hurley dated Hugh Grant from 1987 to 2000, sticking by him even when he was caught with prostitute Divine Brown in 1995.

She has an 11-year-old son with US businessman Steve Bing and was married to textile heir Arun Nayar for four years until 2011. She was engaged to cricketer Shane Warne but they split last year. - Daily Mail
