(DAILYMAIL) — Colin Powell has admitted to exchanging ‘very personal’ emails with a Romanian diplomat who sent him photos of herself – one in a bikini – and confessed to loving him but he denies having an affair with the much younger woman.

The 76-year-old retired general told the Smoking Gun that he met Corina Cretu, 45, roughly ten years ago when she was working as an assistant to the president of Romania. She is now a member of the European Parliament.

Married Powell admitted to the exchange after a hacker released details from their intimate messages.
