Donald Trump Jr. reportedly had an affair with Aubrey O’Day. According to Us Weekly, which confirmed the news with multiple anonymous sources, Trump and the former Celebrity Apprenticecast member met while filming the reality series, with their relationship spanning from the end of 2011 to March 2012.
According to a source close to O’Day, Trump had told her that he was separating from his wife, Vanessa, and that he no longer loved her, “all of that stuff.”
“Aubrey fell for him hard,” said the source. “She thought they were going to be together for real.”
In March 2012, just months after having their third child, Vanessa Trump reportedly found e-mail exchanges between her husband and O’Day, causing him to call off the affair. A source told Page Six that Trump Sr. also intervened when he heard about the relationship with O’Day, telling his son to “knock it off.” The couple would go on to have two more children together, their son Spencer Frederick and daughter Chloe Sophia.
Since the alleged affair has come to light, Internet sleuths (and die-hard Aubrey O’Day fans, too, probably?) have unearthed a not-so-subtle 2013 song from the singer called “DJT,” about a man who calls to break up with his mistress.
The loss of Donald Trump Jr. must be more difficult than we could ever imagine.
O’Day also hinted at her relationship with the now-president’s son after Donald Trumpwon the election. The Hillary Clintonsupporter tweeted that she was “embarrassed to be an American” and that “You can be a lying, abusive piece of trash that is personally and publicly racist, sexist & homophobic and run our country.”
She then responded to followers asking her why she didn’t stand up against Trump while she was on Celebrity Apprentice, writing: “My story I didn’t tell is worth millions now . . . this doesn’t hurt me, it hurts America.”
Vanessa Trump filed for divorce from Donald Trump Jr. last week, releasing a statement saying, “We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”
Since then, reports about their troubled marriage, including Trump Jr.’s, uh, thrifty habits, and Vanessa’s “ill thug” past, have resurfaced.
