It turns out that Jane Krakowski and Mike Lindell weren’t secretly making pillow talk. The reports they had a nine-month romance are a complete fabrication, according to both the former 30 Rock star and the MyPillow guy.
Earlier this week, the Daily Mail reported the two had a secret love affair. This was especially juicy gossip considering their diametrically opposed political views. Krakowski supported Barack Obama, while Lindell was one of the most well-known Donald Trump backers. Days before Trump left the White House, Lindell was photographed leaving an Oval Office strategy meeting with the former president and several of his top advisors.
But the Daily Mail reported they had sources that could prove the 52-year-old actress and the 59-year-old CEO had paired-up despite their party affiliation. Turns out, they may want to recheck those sources. Both Krakowski and Lindell have come out and vehemently denied the story.
“I’ve never even met [her],” Lindell told Page Six. “I didn’t even know who the lady was. I’ve never met her in my life.”
Krakowski was much just as adamant the relationship didn’t happen. But her denial was much more tongue-in-cheek.
“Jane has never met Mr. Lindell,” one of her reps told Yahoo Entertainment. “She is not and has never been in any relationship with him, romantic or otherwise. She is, however, in full-fledged fantasy relationships with Brad Pitt, Regé-Jean Page, and Kermit the Frog and welcomes any and all coverage on those.”
Krakowski starred in the hit NBC show 30 Rock and Netflix’s The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. She will soon host a new remake of Name that Tune on Fox.
Mike Lindell Threatens Lawsuit over Jane Krakowski Story
Mike Lindell told Yahoo that he’d retained an attorney and was considering suing over the story, which he called a “hit piece.”
“They’ve done so much damage to my reputation,” he said. “I’m not just going for a demand letter or a retraction, I want to go after them with a lawsuit because they have damaged my integrity as a Christian and my network to help addicts everywhere.”
He said he’s hired attorney Charles Harder. Harder was Hulk Hogan’s lawyer in his suit against Gawker Media. Gawker published a sex tape of Hogan without his permission. Hogan won that case. Gawkers’ owners sold the media empire for scrap to pay for legal fees and damages.
The past few weeks have been trying for Lindell.
Aside from Trump losing the election, several major retailers, including Macy’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Kohl’s, said they will no longer carry the MyPillow brand. The announcements come after Lindell became one of the most prominent faces of the “Stop the Steal” conspiracy movement that claimed Joe Biden had stolen the election through massive voter fraud.
No evidence of voter fraud was ever corroborated.
