Trump Jr. met singer Aubrey O’Day after she appeared on his father’s reality show, which Trump Jr. was on as an adviser. The pair began their relationship in late 2011 as the taping of the show was wrapping up, and it continued until March 2012, according to Us Weekly.
“When it started, they were very serious all of a sudden,” a source told Us Weekly. “He told her it was over with his wife, that they were separated and he didn’t love her. … Aubrey fell for him hard. She thought they were going to be together for real.”
According to one Page Six source, Trump Jr. was the one who “pursued” Aubrey and told her his marriage was “already in the process of dissolving.”
Us Weekly reported that Vanessa found out about the affair after she found emails between her husband and O’Day. A source told Page Six that Donald Trump intervened and told his son to “cut it out.”
Trump allegedly had an affair with adult-film star Stormy Daniels while he was married to his wife, first lady Melania Trump, while she was pregnant in 2006.
