McDougal shared with the New Yorker that she had a nine-year affair with Trump in 2006, shortly after his marriage to Melania Trump. She also confirmed a Wall Street Journal report stating that she was paid $150,000 before the 2016 election by American Media Inc., the publisher of the National Enquirer, for any information on her affair.
McDougal wrote in private notes about the affair were obtained by the magazine, in which the model wrote about her visits with Trump at the Beverly Hills Hotel – at the time, Trump was host of The Apprentice – where he would constantly order steak and mashed potatoes, and the pair would engage in sexual activities. McDougal also alleged that Trump offered her money after the first time they had sex.
“We talked for a couple hours – then, it was ‘ON’! We for naked and had sex,” she wrote. “I looked at him (and felt sad) and said, ‘No thanks – I’m not ‘that girl.’ I slept w/you because I like you – NOT for money’ – He told me, ‘you are special.'”
Trump would also allegedly fly McDougal out to various events across the country, including the Lake Tahoe golf tournament at which the president is said to have begun his reported affair with porn star Stormy Daniels. Trump has denied the New Yorker report, as the White House did with the Daniels story, despite Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen paying Daniels $130,000 out of his own pocket before the election.
McDougal allegedly ended the relationship with Trump in 2007 after nine months because of the guilt associated, and thinking about “what her mother thought of her.” After dealing with health issues related to her breast implants, McDougal says she reevaluated her life and decisions. “As I was sick and feeling like I was dying and bedridden, all I could do was pray to live. But now I pray to live right, and make right with the wrongs that I have done,” she said.
