MISSED CONNECTIONS? Edwards, Montross (l.), Hunter (r.) Last week, we culled together some thinly sourced material from around the Internet and posted an (admittedly) wildly speculative theory about how Tar Heel and former professional basketball player Eric Montross was the guy paying off both John Edwards' alleged mistress Rielle Hunter as well as Andrew Young, the professed father of Hunter's (Edwards?) kid. Which would be news to Eric Montross! "I don't have anything to do with this," Montross told Radar by phone. "Whatever is going on with Edwards, I can tell you unequivocally that I am uninvolved."

Montross adds that he "has never even heard of Rielle Hunter," much less met her in the flesh or provide her with shelter and/or cash payments. "I hope for their sake the situation gets dealt with and sorted out, but that's of no interest of mine. It doesn't make or break me if it's true because I am not involved at all," he says. "I have no idea who she is, or if she's a real person. I have no idea what this story is about. I am 100 percent detached."
