A politician cheating on his wife isn't really news anymore. A politician cheating on his wife with a MAN isn't even news anymore. But this politician's side action is DEFINITELY a new twist.
53-year-old Simon Parks is a city councilman in Whitby, England. And he's admitted he cheated on his wife, with an ALIEN.
Parkes says he has sex about four times a year with a large, green female space alien known as the Cat Queen. They even have a child together, named Zarka.
Parkes also says his, quote, "real mother" is an alien. She's nine feet tall, green, and has eight fingers. One day he expects to be reunited with her on her home planet, once the technology is ready to beam him up.
And he doesn't believe this alien affair is going to cost him his seat on the city council, because it hasn't affected his work. Mostly, he's just trying to be a trailblazer.
Quote, "There are plenty of people in my position who don't choose to come out and say it because they are terrified it will destroy their careers."
And for now, his wife is sticking by him. Quote, "My wife was very unhappy, clearly. That caused a few problems, but it's not on a human level, so I don't see it as wrong."
