Drew Peterson’s purported ex-fiancée said today that their marital plan was "more like a stunt,” the Huffington Post reports. Christina Raines confirmed that they dated, but said the engagement was cooked up by Peterson's lawyer, who “had wanted him to be in the media and wanted to propose to someone at a restaurant.”

Raines said Peterson discussed the engagement hoax with her, saying, “If it comes out that I'm engaged to someone, it's not really true.” He assured her “that he never said it was me," she said. Raines broke up with Peterson last week after an ex-boyfriend warned her, "This is not right. He's not a good guy." Raines has moved back in with her ex. (Read more Drew Peterson stories.)
