The teenager who received explicit texts and photos from former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner is speaking out for the first time in a face-to-face interview about her online relationship with the former New York congressman.
The girl, who was 15 at the time, sent Weiner a direct message on Twitter in January 2016.
"I just sent him a nice message, ‘Hello, I'm a huge fan," she told Inside Edition in a clip of the interview released Friday.
She said Weiner responded in "minutes."
Inside Edition said it's not naming the girl because she's a minor. The news outlet said the girl's father gave permission for her face to be shown.
It was Weiner's connection to Hillary Clinton that made the girl reach out to him, she said. Weiner was married to Huma Abedin, a longtime Clinton aide.
"I knew that Hillary Clinton would be running for president in the year 2016," she said. "I wanted to see if Anthony was still up to the same antics."
She said she soon became "disgusted" with some of the images and texts she received from Weiner, prompting her to go public about the online relationship.
While the FBI was investigating the alleged sexual misconduct, the bureau discovered emails on a laptop belonging to Weiner that were related to the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.
Clinton reveals in her upcoming memoir that Abedin said Weiner "is going to be the death of me!" as news broke of the explicit messages.
Abedin filed for divorce shortly after.
Weiner pleaded guilty in May to exchanging sexually explicit material with a minor and could face time in prison.
He was also ordered to register as a sex offender.
