Andrew Gillum’s wife R. Jai was behind his first sit-down interview with the disgraced pol since photos of Gillum drunk in a hotel room surfaced in March.
On Monday, the couple will exclusively talk to Tamron Hall. An insider told us that Hall approached R. Jai first, and she only agreed to the interview, “if she could be interviewed without him for a portion. Once she said, ‘Yes,’ he followed.”
The source added, “She was adamant that she have her own voice.” The couple opened up to Hall about the sordid scandal involving Gillum in his own puke in a hotel, with another man who possibly overdosed on meth. The former Florida gubernatorial candidate told Hall he’s cried every day since the incident and confessed he “had too much to drink,” but insisted he did not take meth.
Meanwhile, “R. Jai goes into great detail about the moment when she first saw the picture and what it was like to see her husband like that. She described his behavior as, ‘reckless,’” according to the insider. Hall told People that the interview was “heartbreaking” and “one of the most difficult” in her career.
