NBC NATIONAL NEWS — The former mistress of one-time Vice Presidential Candidate, John Edwards has won ownership of a sex tape.
In today's court settlement former John Edwards aide Andrew Young and his wife gave up their claim on the tape and agreed not to talk publicly about it in the future.
Young has previously described the tape in a tell-all book he wrote about how Edwards hid mistress Rielle Hunter and their child during his 2008 presidential campaign.
The youngs claimed that Hunter left the tape in a box of trash at their house.
Hunter lived with the youngs in 2007 while she was pregnant with Edwards' baby.
According to the settlement, the tape must be destroyed within 30-days.
