RUNAWAY BRIDE SPINS X-RATED TALE

Runaway Bride Jennifer Wilbanks revealed lurid sexual fantasies in a bizarre attempt to cover up the real reason she fled just days before her wedding.

In the latest bombshell revelation in the case that has fascinated America, The National Enquirer can reveal how the 32-year-old bride-to-be claimed she was out jogging on the night of April 26 when an Hispanic man "with rotting teeth" and his girlfriend abducted her, tied her up and threw her in a van. She said the two then sexually assaulted her before letting her go in New Mexico.

She later admitted that the X-rated sex and bondage tale was completely fabricated and she had left her hometown of Duluth, Ga., because she felt "overwhelmed" by her elaborately planned nuptials.

When FBI agents told Jennifer that her statements did not seem credible and they suspected that she left Duluth to escape the pressure of her upcoming wedding, she finally broke down and admitted her story was a lie.

Wilbanks has now checked into a medical treatment program to deal with unspecified "physical and mental issues."
