John Edwards reportedly refused to let former mistress Rielle Hunter move into a house he bought for her because he was enraged by her demands for money.

According to the National Enquirer, Edwards has been secretly negotiating a child support agreement with Hunter, but discussions have turned sour.

"John thought he had sweetened the deal by getting Rielle a house, but she didn't think what he'd offered to pay in regular support for their daughter was fair," an insider disclosed.

"John was so angry that he wouldn't let Rielle move into the house, even with a moving van full of her belongings en route.

The National Enquirer broke the story of Edwards's affair in the summer of 2008. In August, North Carolina's WRAL reported that Edwards was going to admit paternity of Hunter's child. The New York Times reported in September that he was "considering" doing so. But the former senator and presidential candidate has yet to make an announcement.
