Two days after Karen McDougal filed suit against National Enquirer publisher American Media Inc. to be released from a nondisclosure agreement, the former Playboy playmate discussed her alleged affair with President Donald Trump across 10 months in 2006 and 2007.
McDougal is the second woman claiming to have had an affair with President Trump and to have signed an NDA restricting her ability to discuss it. Stephanie Clifford, an adult-film actress who goes by the stage name Stormy Daniels, has also sued Trump to end her 2016 NDA.
McDougal says the alleged relationship began when Trump was filming a scene of The Celebrity Apprentice at the Playboy Mansion. She added that she first began to feel strange about the alleged relationship with Trump on the night of their first date, when she was expecting to go to dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel, but Trump’s bodyguard took her to a bungalow. At the time, Trump was married to his current wife, Melania, who had just given birth to their son, Baron. However, McDougal said she met Trump again after the first meeting because he made her feel better about herself at a time when she was in a bad place in life. She pointed out that Trump wasn’t motivated to hide the relationship, even cooing when she said she had told her sister about their affair.
When asked whether she was in love with Trump, she said she was. As for him: “He always told me he loved me,” she said. She alleged she saw him at least five times a month for 10 months and that he did not use protection during sex.
