Is former White House intern Monica Lewinsky planning to publish a tell-all memoir about her alleged affair with former president Bill Clinton?

The New York Post says Lewinsky will earn a $12 million advance for a detailed memoir about her time with Clinton.

Those who claim the book exists says it contains more details on the affair as well as complaints Clinton made to Lewinsky about his wife, Hillary, and letters Lewinsky wrote to Clinton which have never been previously released.

"In them, she opened her heart about her love for Bill and how much happier she could make him,” an anonymous source said, according to the Post. “Some of what she wrote was so raw that she never sent them."

But then others say Lewinsky has no such plans. Someone called a friend of Lewinsky's told the Huffington Post that despite demand for it, Lewinsky will not be penning a memoir any time soon.

"Several publishers would love her to tell all, but she has no intention of doing so,” the friend said. “She has been through enough already and all this happened 14 years ago. She has put it behind her and moved on with her life."

Lewinsky previously spoke about her alleged affair with Clinton to writer Andrew Morton, who published the book "Monica's Story." Morton was also the author of the controversial biography of Diana, Princess of Wales, titled "Diana, Her True Story."
