A federal judge disclosed Friday that former presidential candidate John Edwards has a life-threatening heart condition, a court source confirmed to CNN.
Edwards had sought a delay in his criminal corruption trial, scheduled to begin this month.
Attorneys and the federal judge met in a North Carolina courtroom Friday afternoon for a status hearing regarding the pending trial of Edwards, a former U.S. senator.
Edwards appeared at Friday's hearing. His lawyers had made the motion for a delay under seal, but some of its details were publicly revealed by the judge in the open hearing.

Quite the coincidence.
The man faces a potential life sentence and that life sentence may not be that long.
He doesn’t have a heart. I guess you could die from that.
If he has a conscience, his stress over the way he treated Elizabeth while she was dieing probably contributed.
Just glad to know he has a heart--who knew?
This is the big one Elizabeth!
Commonly diagnosed among amoral narcissistic asshats.
And in other news - A LAWYER HAS A HEART!!! EVERYBODY PANIC!!!
HaHa, BS is correct
I feel sorry for the kids. Already lost their mother and now may lose their father. At least in jail, they would be able to visit and write letters. Now with the possibility of death the kids will be orphans at such a young age. They got a raw deal in life. Very awful news.
Why do I seem to doubt the “heart consition” story? It seems as though this scenario has become quite popular lately.
Pretty wild, isn’t it? All that wealth, the high quality of life that they had...it could all be snuffed out just that fast.
That is funny!
REMINDS ME OF THE TIME MY BROTHER AND I WAS CARRYING HIS BUDDY-SPRAINED AKLE-IN PAIN. Another buddy (we were all 10 years old at the time) came up and blurted out “he’s faking it you guys!”
I doubt it too. Wonder if it’s not just something like a-fluttering that can be helped pretty easily, but he’s whupping it up into a huge lawyer story. Wouldn’t that be SUCH a surprise?
