'I’ve never had a prostitute here. I’m very happily married at home.' - Rob Ford

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford made the following comments to group of media at city hall on Thursday morning:

“It’s unfortunate I have to take legal action. I don’t appreciate people calling Alana a prostitute. I’ve never had a prostitute here. I’m very happily married at home. This is very disturbing against my wife.

"Unfortunately I have to take legal action against Isaac Ransom and George Christopoulos and Mark Towhey. I have to take legal action against the waiter that said I was doing lines at the Bier Markt. That is outright lies. That is not true.

"You know what? But it hurts my wife when they’re calling a friend of mine a prostitute. Alana is not a prostitute. She’s a friend and it makes me sick how people are saying this.

"So unfortunately, I have no other choice. I’m the last one to take legal action. I can’t put up with it anymore.

"So, I’ve named the names. Litigation will be starting shortly. I’ve had enough. That’s why I warned you guys yesterday, be careful what you wrote, ‘kay? So, that’s all I have to say for now.

"And the next thing I want to call Mayor [Bob Bratina] in Hamilton and tell him that we’re going to have to spank the little Tigercats.

"Oh, and the last thing was, Olivia Gondek, it says that I wanted to eat her p---y, Olivia Gondek. I’ve never said that in my life to her. I would never do that. I’m happily married. I’ve got more than enough to eat at home. Thank you very much.”
