Say what you will about the National Enquirer, but they really know how to break an affair in the most ironic way possible.

The king of stings was secretly filmed on a date with 30-year-old Kristyn Caddell, a TV reporter more than 20 years his junior, in an “undercover sting operation arranged by the National Enquirer.” From The Daily Mail:

Hansen, 51, has allegedly been having an affair with Kristyn Caddell, a 30-year-old Florida journalist, for the last four months.

Last weekend he was recorded taking Miss Caddell on a romantic dinner at the exclusive Ritz-Carlton hotel in Manalapan, before spending the night at her Palm Beach apartment.

Secret cameras filmed the couple as they arrived at the hotel for dinner and then drove back to her apartment – where the pair left, carrying luggage, at 8am the following day.

Hansen lives in Connecticut with his wife Mary, 53, but he has been spending more and more time in South Florida investigating the disappearance of James ‘Jimmy T’ Trindade – and allegedly sleeping with Miss Caddell.
