Omarosa Manigault Newman is continuing her vengeance on the Trump administration following her termination earlier this year. In her new book, the former White House staffer claims to have seen the “long chain of dirty texts” Donald Trump Jr. allegedly sent to his former mistress, singer Aubrey O’Day.
In Omarosa’s new memoir “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House” she confirms Aubrey O’Day and Donald Trump Jr. had an affair in 2011. The former “Apprentice” star wrote that she first learned about the alleged affair from the former Danity Kane member herself. O’Day allegedly confided to Omarosa that she was having the affair with Trump’s married son while she appeared on a season of “Celebrity Apprentice”.
“Aubrey and I knew each other in L.A., so when she did the show she called me to ask for advice. I next heard from her when she started seeing Don Jr.,” Manigault Newman wrote. “She told me, ‘He’s leaving his wife. They basically aren’t together. They’ve separated.’ ”
Omarosa shared that she “didn’t believe that” Don Jr. would ever leave Vanessa Trump, who was pregnant at the time. However, the next time she met up with O’Day, she says the singer “showed me very personal photos that Don Jr. had sent to her,” as well as “a long chain of dirty texts between them.”
“If she hadn’t shown me those photos and texts, I wouldn’t have believed it,” the former White House aid wrote.
However, at the time, Manigault Newman decided not to involve herself in the messy marital drama.
“I filed their affair under ‘not my business,’ a list that was growing longer every day, but my heart went out to Vanessa,” she wrote. “She was popping out children and holding down the fort in New York while Don Jr. was allegedly running around the world, cheating on her with somebody from work.”
Manigault Newman also wrote in the book that before the alleged affair began, Donald Trump seemingly encouraged his son to cheat on his wife.
“During one boardroom outtake that season, it came out that Donald Trump and Carol Alt had once dated in the nineties. Donald said something like, ‘Yeah, those were the good ole days.’ ” she wrote, adding that he then “turned to Don Jr. and said, ‘You’ve got to get ass like that. You’ve got to get ass like that.’ ”
“I remember being disgusted, thinking, Donald, what are you talking about? Your son is married. His wife is pregnant,” wrote Manigault Newman.
Manigault Newman also wrote that by 2016, when Trump was campaigning for president, Don Jr. and Vanessa’s marriage was “hanging by a thread”.
“I believe that as far back as July 2016, if not even farther, their marriage was hanging by a thread,” she wrote. “But she showed up at the convention and the debates anyway, taking her seat in the row of Trump wives out of respect for her father-in-law.”
Earlier this year Vanessa, who shares five children with Don Jr., filed for divorce after 12 years of marriage. Don Jr. has gone on to a public relationship with his new girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle.
A source who worked with Celebrity Apprentice previously told PEOPLE that Don Jr. and O’Day’s “affair ended” after Vanessa discovered “sexy” text messages between the pair while her husband was in the shower.
