Jennifer Arcuri has claimed that she and Boris Johnson had a four-year affair in which she sent him ‘arty’ topless photos – but insists they had an ‘intellectual appeal’.

The 35-year-old said she ‘fell in love’ with the now prime minister, 56, during their alleged relationship that she says lasted from 2012 to 2016.

She stated that she and Mr. Johnson, who was the mayor of London at the time, started the affair during his second term when he was married to the now ex-wife, high-flying attorney Marina Wheeler – with whom he shares two sons and two daughters.

Ms. Arcuri claims the couple first had sex in her flat on Shoreditch High Street, where she installed the pole dancer device just hours before he attended the opening of the 2012 Paralympic Games.

The technology entrepreneur, originally from America, said Sunday Mirror that during their first rendezvous he “couldn’t keep his hands off her” and that they met once a week at the height of the romance.

But she said there was a mutual “physical and intellectual attraction” between them.

Mrs. Arcuri told the publication: ‘We had an intimate relationship for four years. I loved him and for good reason. But the man I thought I knew no longer exists. ‘

She was a business student when she first met Mr. Johnson in 2011 before volunteering to campaign for him in his re-election as the mayor of London the following year.

The entrepreneur said there had been a “ clear spark ” and the pair exchanged numbers before drinking and eating her at restaurants in the capital.

She said that after the couple had sex for the first time, Mr. Johnson didn’t want to leave, but she told him, ‘YYou should be on stage and on TV in a few hours.

“Now I’m pushing you out the door with all your mayoral supplies, the lanyard with the large badge and the lapel pins.”

Just hours after the alleged romp, Mr. Johnson stood onstage alongside Princess Anne, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

She also claimed to have sent an ‘artsy’ photo of herself topless with the snapshots from professional shoots.

But Ms. Arcuri said the couple’s alleged affair ended in 2016, saying, “I wasn’t going to be a backup plan, or the last 747,000th on its list to deal with.”

City hall and police watchdog were investigating the prime minister’s ties to the tech entrepreneur – who received £ 126,000 in public grants and went on overseas trade missions to Indonesia and Israel with Mr Johnson.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct said there was no evidence that he had committed the crime of misconduct in public office, but that he may have violated the Nolan Principles.

Ms. Arcuri claims she herself was invited to trade trips as a member of the London tech scene.

But they condemned Mr. Johnson as a “cowardly wet noodle” for not standing with her during the fallout.

A spokesperson for No. 10 told MailOnline that it had “nothing more to add” regarding Ms. Arcuri’s claims.

The prime minister has never confirmed or denied that the couple was involved in an affair before.
