Rudy Giuliani attended a White House dinner on Friday with the woman he claimed he was not having an affair with during his marriage to his third wife.
The former New York mayor walked proudly into the dinner that was being thrown for the Prime Minister of Australia and his wife with Dr. Maria Ryan.
She was named in court documents filed by Giuliani's wife when she divorced him. She claimed he and Ryan, who is also married, were having an affair throughout their marriage.
Giuliani denied it, saying there was 'no proof' they'd had sex despite spending the night together at an upstate hotel.
He called Ryan, who has has attended events with in the past, as a 'very fine woman' and said he was also friends with her husband.

She was still wearing a ring on her wedding finger on Friday to attend the event with the 75-year-old.
Ryan's daughter was Giuliani's former assistant.
In June last year, Giuliani insisted and Ryan were 'friends'.
Even if they had spent the night together at a New Hampshire hotel before his divorce to wife Judith Nathan was underway, it happened when he was 'in effect, separated', he said.
Nathan, who married the politician in 2003 after starting her relationship with him when he was married to his second wife, however dismissed his denial of infidelity.
She said: 'My husband’s denial of the affair with the married Mrs. Ryan is as false as his claim that we were separated when he took up with her.'
It has since been claimed that Ryan accompanied him to Israel and attended an event where she was introduced as his 'partner'.
The pair did not hold hands and did not address the nature of their relationship. Giuliani previously called Ryan's husband a 'fine man'
