Danney Williams, 30, claims he is the biological son of former President Bill Clinton. Rumors that Bill Clinton once fathered a child with a prostitute have reemerged, as the now 30-year-old man makes a bid to have the former president recognize him as a son.
Danney Williams started a Facebook page in December, under the new name Danney Williams-Clinton, with the apparent intention of grabbing the Clintons’ attention.

A DNA test reportedly conducted by Star magazine in 1999 said that Danney couldn’t be Clinton’s son but there remain questions about the test’s precision.
Danney’s story first garnered international attention in 1992, as then-Arkansas Gov Clinton was gearing up to run for president.
The Globe interviewed Danney’s mother, a former prostitute named Bobbie Ann Williams, who told the story of how she allegedly met and began a relationship with Clinton in 1984.
She says Clinton went out for a run one day in Little Rock, when he jogged by her housing project and introduced himself to her. She was 24 years old at the time.
A few days later, Clinton allegedly jogged by the housing project again and paid Bobbie $200 for her to have sex with him behind some bushes.
After that, Bobbie says that she and Clinton regularly had sex, sometimes alone, sometimes with other female partners.
Eventually, Bobbie became pregnant and she suspected that it was Clinton’s child.
But when she told the governor, he allegedly laughed in her face.
‘He rubbed my big belly and said, “Girl, that can’t be my baby.” But I knew it was. I just had this kind of woman’s feeling that this was his child.’ Bobbie told The Globe.
She became even more sure when she gave birth to the baby boy on December 7, 1985, because the boy’s skin tone was so light. Bobbie says her son could only be Clinton’s because he was her only white client at the time she got pregnant.
Shortly after giving birth though, Bobbie was imprisoned, and her sister Lucille Bolton started taking care of the young boy. Bolton is said to be the first person who tried to force the governor to take a DNA test, and reportedly spoke about the matter with Hillary herself.
When the governor’s office began shutting her out, a local activist took up the cause and started spreading a flyer about the matter titled ‘The Hottest Thing Going: Bill Clinton’s D*** Will Keep Him From Running for President of the United States of America’.
The story was picked up again in 1999, when the Drudge Report ran a story claiming that Star magazine had conducted a paternity test using the DNA analysis from the Kenneth Starr impeachment report, and samples from Danney and Bobbie.
The analysis reportedly found that Danney and Clinton couldn’t be related, but there are questions about the test’s precision.
