Elizabeth Edwards is battling terminal breast cancer, but denies that she is trying to ensure custody of her two youngest children will go to her eldest daughter Cate.
Rumors were flying that Elizabeth was grooming Cate, a 28-year-old Harvard-educated lawyer, for raising her younger siblings Emma, 12 and Jack, 10 after their mother had passed in order to keep the children from her husband John Edwards and his mistress Rielle Hunter.
"The story is not true," Elizabeth said. She also said that no other family members would get the children and that they would go to John.
Such a sad situation all around.
