A mistress is frustrated because her lover is accusing her of calling his wife and causing mischief.

Cassandra Myers, 24, who is three months pregnant with 50-year-old Benjamin Byfield'schild, called our office seeking a lie-detector test. She is eager to clear her name.

The pair from Braeton, St Catherine, met over a year ago at a grocery store Cassandra operated, and have been in a relationship since.

They say things were going great before the phone calls started.

Cassandra said: "He said his wife told him a female keeps calling her phone telling her that he has another woman and he thinks I did it."

Benjamin responded: "Cassandra is the only person who has access to my phone to get that number, plus my wife said the person used a specific word, and Cassandra loves to use that word."

Benjamin, who has been married for three years, said all was well between them until last September. "During my birthday party, Cassandra's sister told her that I brought someone else to my party and that's when it all started," he said.

But Cassandra refutes: "It must be some other woman who's making the calls. He only thinks it's me because I have access to his house. I'm not stupid, the same way he cheated on his wife with me, he'll cheat on me. This is his wife, I would never cross that line."

But Benjamin declares: "She stands to benefit from this, if me and my wife break up, me and Cassandra will be together."

When asked if he has any intentions of leaving his wife or Cassandra, he responded, "I'm not sure."

What will happen if the lie-detector test proves Cassandra has been telling the truth? "Nothing won't happen, I told her not to get involved, I don't want a third party," Benjamin said.

Cassandra added: "I want to prove my innocence because my child's life is on the line. I don't want this drama to affect my child's life."
