The Daily Mail reported this week that Lindell and Krakowski had a “passionate romance” over the summer. The article includes details of a weekend spent at a beach house in Hampton and time spent together at the West Village in Manhattan.
“He sent her flowers almost every week and champagne and bottles of different alcohol. She said she had known him for about eight years and that they were friends, but then they started a relationship about a year ago,” the Daily Mail quoted an anonymous source as saying.
Lindell told the Insider in a text that “he’s never been to that Hampton or the West Village!”
He added: “I also didn’t even know who the lady was.”
Krakowski, best known for his role as Jenna Maroney in “30 Rock,” also denied having an affair.
A spokeswoman for the actress told the sixth page of the New York Post: “Jane has never met Mr. Lindell. She has not and never had any relationship with him, romantic or otherwise. However, she is in full-fledged fantasy links with Brad Pitt, Rege-Jean Page and Kermit the Frog and welcomes any coverage of these. “
Representatives of the Daily Mail and Krakowski did not respond to Insider’s request for comment.
MyPillow was in the news when Lindell insists on conspiracy theories about voter fraud
Lindell made headlines last Friday when he became one of the last people to visit President Donald Trump at the White House.
MyPillow CEO, a staunch supporter of Trump, has been pushing for unfounded conspiracy theories that Joe Biden stole the 2020 presidential election. Technology voting company Dominion has threatened to take legal action against Lindell.
“I’m not giving up on those machines that stole our election,” Lindell told Insider in an interview Wednesday.
“I never change my mind about something like this. I won’t say, ‘Oh, please don’t boycott me.’ Please don’t, “Lindell added, turning his voice into a whimpering and pitiful tone.
“It’s not me,” Lindell added. “If everyone has done that, then anyone who wants to control the story can do whatever they want and destroy the companies.”
MyPillow’s CEO has been divorced twice, according to his book “What Are the Chances? From Crack Addict to CEO.” In 2007, he separated from his 20-year-old wife and the mother of his four children as they both struggled with addictions to break into cocaine. In 2013, he married a woman named Dallas at a lavish $ 100,000 wedding. They divorced 20 days later.
“I’m not in love with you,” Dallas told Lindel shortly after their marriage, according to his book. “Besides, you’re boring.”
Lindell told Insider on Friday that he was in a relationship with a woman named Kendra. Lindell’s sister introduced him to Kendra after they met at a Christian conference in 2012; Lindell writes in her book that his sister insists, “that God has shown her that one day Kendra and I will be married.”
Kendra played a role in Lindell’s participation in the presence of more evangelical Christian events, which contributed to his interest in politics. Although Lindell said he was considering running, he told Insider on Wednesday that his main concern at the moment is to deal with the election he considers to be an election.
