Don Trump Jr. was allegedly carrying on a full-fledged affair with Aubrey O’Day

Donald Trump Jr. and wife Vanessa Haydon

I have a lot of theories about why a Trump-friendly, Murdoch-owned outlet like the New York Post is running all of these scandalous and shady stories about Don Trump Jr. The big theory is that Bigly Trump is doing the most to distract from his war with Stormy Daniels, even if that means he’s throwing his son to the proverbial wolves. There are other theories too, of course. It’s also possible that The New York Post/Page Six just loves cheap, tacky scandals about political sons and D-list celebrities. So, we know that Don Trump Jr. got served with divorce papers from his wife Vanessa. We’ve been hearing different theories WHY, why now, why the divorce, why is it suddenly too much. Here’s one answer: Don was banging Aubrey O’Day.

Years before Vanessa Trump filed for divorce from Donald Trump Jr., their marriage was rocked when — around the time she was pregnant with their third child — he cheated on her with a contestant from “The Celebrity Apprentice.” Page Six has exclusively learned that Don Jr. — then a so-called “adviser” on the NBC show — fell for busty Danity Kane star Aubrey O’Day while filming “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2011.

Sources say that Vanessa — who filed for divorce from President Donald Trump’s eldest son last week after 13 years of marriage — was devastated when he told her that he planned to leave her for O’Day. Vanessa was pregnant with their third child, Tristan, around that time.

Don Jr. “pursued [Aubrey]. It was him who chased her,” said a source familiar with the situation. “He told her that his marriage was already in the process of dissolving.” But the insider added, “I think his marriage to Vanessa was over long before Aubrey came along.” O’Day’s rep declined to comment.

A second source said that Trump Sr. stepped in when he heard about the relationship with O’Day and told Don Jr. to “knock it off.” The first source said that his family “pressured [Don Jr.] to stay in his marriage.” Sources say that the pair would meet up in various cities during their fling and wrote each other love notes.

On election night in 2016, O’Day — who became famous after appearing on Diddy’s reality show “Making the Band” in 2005 — pointedly tweeted, “my story I didn’t tell is worth millions now.” However, sources say that O’Day was truly in love with Don Jr., that she never sought money either to tell her story or to keep quiet, and that she was never paid by the Trump family. Suggesting an unusual taste in men, she later went on to date “Jersey Shore” star Pauly D.

A third source said that Vanessa “was going to leave [Don Jr.] then. That was the start of the downfall [of their marriage].”

[From Page Six]

I’ve literally never cared enough about Aubrey O’Day to even form an opinion about her before now, and after reading this story, all I can say to her is “Girl, you need to love yourself.” If the sources are correct and she was carrying on with a married moron Trump son AND she was truly in love with him… good God. Baby girl, LOVE YOURSELF. You can do better. Truly. But yeah, I believe Don Jr. is this person – a smarmy, disgusting cheater.

    That Apple didn’t roll far from the Tree.

    The funny thing is I remember at one time I would read things about the Trump Kids… some would go on and on about how great the kids had turned out. That Dumpster couldn’t be all bad because he had such upstanding kids. They are all just as horrible as he is. Tiffany could be the exception. Mainly because she is on the outer lines of the family. Spending more time with her mother.

    • Becks says:

      Joe Scarborough said that once. I think it was specifically about Ivanka but generally about all the kids – he said that he had always found them to be polite, outgoing, etc (that doesn’t mean a whole lot for how they are on the inside, but he implied they put up a good front) and said that once he complimented Trump on them and Trump said something like “everything good about them is due to their mother.” (mothers? I cant remember if he was including Tiffany or not.) Joe has said that it was the only time Trump dodged a compliment in his experience, ha.

      So maybe they just put on a good show? or used to at any rate.

    • lightpurple says:

      Based on Tiffany’s summer trip to Italy, which somehow cost taxpayers over $160K just for cars and her Christmas instagram stuff with sister Princess Nagini, Tiffany is no exception. She wants in to the mob clan; the mob clan just doesn’t want her.

      • jwoolman says:

        If the taxpayers are paying that really piddling amount (look at the military budget, please) for her security because she was unlucky enough to have half of President Tweeter’s genes — I don’t see how that reflects badly on her. She has to lead her life

        That’s why it’s pointless to keep complaining about security costs for the Trumps. That’s an expense that is needed unless you want to imprison them all in the White House for the duration. There are many other government expenses that are ridiculous, but not that one.

    • magnoliarose says:

      Nope. Tiff is not the exception. Her mother is no better than Mel. In fact, I give Mel more props over Marla because Mel is much stronger and far tougher than Marla. Marla isn’t very bright and like I said a person that is friends with my sibling worked close to Trump in the 90s. He treated her like garbage and kept her basically broke.
      Marla’s whole life to this day is finding wealthy people, men to sponge off of, befriending wealthy women to ride their coattails. She pursued 45 and basically stalked him while he was married to get close to him.
      Tiff is trying to cash in on her last name and is desperate to hang with trust funders and wealthy kids on the NYC social scene. I know from my younger relatives and their friends. She hangs with kids trying to trade their last names for some attention and celebrity. I was told she doesn’t seem to understand the difference between notorious and low-level celebrity.
      This crew she associates with post obnoxious bragging wealth flaunting nonsense on their IGs and act like Paris Hilton wannabes. Her old IG account was full of this stuff until 45′s campaign.
      She isn’t any different than the rest. The gossip about her is fairly bitchy as could be expected.

      • Christin says:

        Maples claimed to have some information to share, if it appeared her ex could be elected. Then it was crickets. She and her daughter seemed ready to soak up any celebrity status they could. So, no sympathy for either of them.

      • Elkie says:

        How is Melania “stronger” or “tougher”?

        A strong person would refuse to engage in Two Scoop’s racist Birtherism, condemn his boasting of sexual assault and do the best for her son by raising him far, far away.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Marla is a piece of work who will do or say anything for media attention and money. She deliberately got pregnant to force him to marry her and he hated her for it (something that i think he even admitted to). He didn’t want to divorce Ivanna as from accounts that I have read they were well suited to each other and both loved the media attention.

        As for Tiffany, the 3 older children hated her and I think they still do. Maybe she and Ivanka get along ok now but you can tell that Uday and Quasy hate her in the photo’s you see of all of them. Their body language gives it away. As well as daddy issues there are sibling rivalry issues at play as well.

      • Neelyo says:

        She was recently at the wedding of one of the NYC Prep former cast members (cancelled Bravo show) so yeah, Magnolia Rose’s take about her social sphere sounds about right.

      • Megan says:

        Melania is certainly understands Trump better than Marla did. Marla thought she was going to be the star in the relationship. Melania gets that no one, not even his own wife, can outshine Trump.

      • Aurelia says:

        Melania is eastern european isn’t she. I am in new zealand and I have a Czech, a Romanian and a Siberian as close friends. I swear they are tougher than me.

      • magnoliarose says:

        I didn’t say she had a moral compass. Lol Or that she is a good person. You are right that it means more to be that way in life, but these aren’t those kinds of people.
        But she knows what is what with 45, and she plays her cards with an eye on the end game. She has never presented herself as a victim. Marla ended up with not much in the scheme of things, 2 million and was a constant victim.

  3. tracking says:

    Apple, tree. He’s disgusting, just like dear old dad.

  4. Lotusgoat says:

    If he did that when she was pregnant with number 3, why did she have two more of his kids?

  5. Digital Unicorn says:

    He’s morphing into his father every day – from the way he styles his hair to the way he wears his suits. He is 2 scoops jr all the way.

    Part of me thinks that this is not only to distract from Daddy and Stormy but to push the narrative that its because of cheating and NOT asset protecting. At the end of the day, she has hired a criminal attorney for a divorce – something big is coming and Jr is trying to create a narrative to cover his ass.

    • Maria F. says:

      that makes a lot of sense

      • Honey says:

        I think it’s to protect money/property too. I’m waiting to see what, if any, moves Ivanka and/or Eric will make.

        As a side note, I’m so glad that I’m not one of those women who is attracted to greasy looking and acting MFs like Don Jr. There is a higher power. I can only Imagine how long it took her to scrub the grease and skid marks off of her body after being with him and the sheer amount of toothpaste and mouth wash she had to have used probably set her back thousands. Oh, God, it’s worse than thinking about Trump with Stormy Daniels.

        A prayer: God, please save us women from ourselves. No woman should ever feel enough attraction, pity or experience the level of career or financial desperation or drunkenness needed to have sex with Donald Trump or his sons. Please help us.

      • Megan says:

        The lawyer she hired is a family friend. He may be representing her because she won’t have available funds to pay until after she receives her divorce settlement. Since this is an “uncontested” divorce, it will occur behind closed doors with a mediator to ensure we never see the receipts on Trump Inc.

    • Becks says:

      I loathe him, but I get the vibe he has serious “daddy issues,” and I don’t like using that term. In almost every story you hear it sounds like Trump was a real asshole of a father and probably still is now. I’m not excusing his behavior AT ALL, but saying that the whole “morphing into his father” is probably intentional on some level.

      I need more coffee. Too much psychobabble too early in the AM!

    • lucy2 says:

      “Part of me thinks that this is not only to distract from Daddy and Stormy but to push the narrative that its because of cheating and NOT asset protecting.”

      Most people are saying Jr. is toast, legally, and funny how none of these cheating stories came out until after everyone was like, yeah, that divorce now is a classic mob wife move to hide assets.
      That’s not to say I don’t believe the cheating story, but that’s not why they’re divorcing.

      RBC – I don’t think he’s smart enough to play the long game, but I do think he’s weak enough to turn on his father if things get too scary for him.

    • equalitygadfly says:

      I wouldn’t even be surprised if it’s made up. Aubrey O’Day will take any scrap of exposure. I could legit see someone from Team Trump calling her up with an offer: “We’ll give you X amount of money if we can say you and Donnie, Jr. had an affair way back in the day. It’ll get your name back in the spotlight, and you earn a few bucks.”

      Aubrey O’Day: “Sure, why not. ”

      It really doesn’t hurt HER “brand” — (her brand being “do nearly anything to get the spotlight to swing through, even if it’s just for a quickie.”)

      • Honey says:

        True. This doesn’t seem/feel authentic in any way shape or form. They are looking for a distraction. God, I hope she didn’t have to sleep with him to earn a payout. He is more disgusting than his father. I’ve said this before: Fred Trump had to have been a major, major asshole AND I wonder about the mental/emotional treatment of Trump’s mother.

      • Esmom says:

        Hm, not sure about that but it’s an interesting theory. If true, why wouldn’t they say the affair was recent so that divorcing now would make more sense?

    • ida says:

      @Digital Unicorn “… to push the narrative that its because of cheating and NOT asset protecting” EXACTLY!

    • madonami says:

      Whatever it is, and I think all of these options are totally on the table, I think the “Dump told him to knock it off” bit is a giveaway that it is Dump, or several Dumps, behind the story, because my arse Dump gave a crap about Dump Jr. cheating. That line very strongly smells thrown in at Dump’s request. GMAFB. He’d pat Dump Jr. on the back for cheating on his wife and probably did.

    • holly hobby says:

      I read this on Vanity Fair:

      Not sure if this is true or not but it sure isn’t “poor Vanessa.” I do agree with about the sham divorce.

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      Yes, I found her retaining of the criminal attorney most interesting.

  6. RBC says:

    For a family that loves the spotlight and shrugs off scandal so easily, a quiet and civil divorce seemed odd. This Aubrey / Don jr affair could just be some smoke for a larger dumpster fire that is ready to explode.
    As for the New York Post running such stories, could Murdoch and Co. be wanting to distance itself from 45 because they are also somehow connected to the Russia probe? I fully believe Mueller has also been looking at any involvement Rupert Murdoch and Fox may have had in the election.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Could be esp as the UK gov wants to search the premises and databases for Cambridge Analytica in relation to the Russia and the US election interference. Even the EU are starting to show an interest in the Mercer/Bannon owned company.

      The US/Russia election collusion has now gone international. Plus there are also concerns on how they interfered with Brexit as they used the same tactics.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I’m so excited about this. Tonight at 7pm in London (I think noon in Los Angeles) Channel 4 is releasing Cambridge Analytica tapes where they supposedly brag about electing Trump and describe how they did it. It’s supposed to be a bombshell, but it could be hype.

      • Giddy says:

        David Corn, who wrote Russian Roulette about the election, was given a preview of the show tonight and said it was “pure dynamite”. It should be very interesting!

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Yes – I will be watching, I hope Mueller is too.

        It could also explain the poisoning incident – create pre emptive tensions between the UK and Russia with Russia saying that the UK doctored the evidence just like they are claiming that it was the UK who was behind the poisoning to discredit Putin during his recent election campaign. This is something that he would do.

        Also interesting is that Cambridge Analytica’s UK offices are close to one of Google’s main London offices. I know that part of London and its a few min walk.

    • jwoolman says:

      The National Enquirer had a ton of awful stories about Hillary on their front page during the 2016 campaign. Pecker has owned it for a long while now, bought it from Murdoch, and is a Trump buddy.. Pecker apparently decides himself on the cover stories.

  7. Maria F. says:

    suggesting an unsual taste in men – you can say that again. Yuck.

  8. Tate says:

    How do you justify this one, evangelicals?

  9. Swack says:

    Like Trump has the right to tell anyone to knock it off when it comes to infidelity in a marriage.

    • Pandy says:

      Right? If it wasn’t HIS affair, nobody else could have one!
      Seriously though, I do think Aubrey is very pretty. At least she was during the Apprentice days. I watched it pretty faithfully. I’m sure she’s had surgery and it was probably a lot of spray tan, fake hair and contact lens, but …. okay, I’m talking myself out of that statement lolll.

  10. Redgrl says:

    Yeah, this all coming out as the Mueller indictments creep closer is a bit suspicious. Is the divorce fast-tracking a bigger effort to hide assets or money-laundering ties to the Russians by offloading that property to her? Is that why she hired a criminal lawyer as part of her divorce team? Is that possible under US law or would the authorities be able to simply follow the money and subpoena her & her new assets? (I assume the latter especially given the timing of all of this!) Or as the post suggests is it a pathetic distraction attempt from Orange Mussolini’s cheating? Or is she trying to bail and get herself and the kids away from a sinking ship? The notion of the Orange of Doom telling him to stop cheating is laughable, so I am suspicious of the Post article, although I don’t doubt the chinless wonder screwed around with d-list sublebrities – no real talent would touch these grifters…

    • Belle Epoch says:

      REDGRL I’m going with the get-his-money-quick theory. They’re bringing up a years old affair as smoke screen. I would not be surprised if they are in this together. A quickie, uncontested, amicable divorce – with millions of dollars and FIVE children in the mix? She’s getting his money before he goes to jail. It’s gonna take big bucks to keep them all in the Country Club.

    • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

      It could be a distraction but I’ve been surprised at how little coverage this divorce has received overall. Too many Drump scandals at one time and if it’s not about Russia, corruption and graft, the rest of the media has no time for it. Only the part of the wife hiring a criminal attorney has penetrated the legitimate media.

      Now if it was Ivanka divorcing Jared, that would catch media interest, only the Golden child’s glamours life matters.

  11. Beth says:

    The Trump family is a sleezy soap opera. More dramatic scandals everyday

      As someone posted on another site, even telenovas have fewer plot lines.

      A single movie about this fiasco will make Gone With the Wind (nearly 4 hours in length) appear to be a short script.

  13. Veronica says:

    Yeah, still convinced it’s being done for assets protection. As I stated before, cheating is pretty far down on the list of things to divorce over when heirloom wealth is on the line.

  17. madonami says:

    I hadn’t see the bit about her getting a criminal attorney. That seems like, yeah, this is about more than an affair that happened years ago. But also, I’d think that EVERY person anywhere near the orbit of these people should have a criminal attorney.

      My family is fractured over it. Some dumped 45 a while ago. The educated more successful ones. The others are in it to the end I guess.
      Maybe one day I will reconnect with the ones I think are worth my time. The others are too far gone to be salvaged.

  19. jferber says:

    Jerry Hall married Rupert Murdoch, so I’m hoping she’s a tempering influence on Murdoch and told him to go after the Trumps. She was notoriously cheated on by Mick from Day 1. Just a theory. Not sure it holds water, but I like the feel of it.
