Last week, Vanessa Trump filed for divorce from Donald Trump Jr. on the same day that special counsel Robert Mueller subpoenaed the Trump Organization for documents relevant to the Russia probe. And if last week wasn’t bad enough for Trump’s largest adult son, this week is proving to be just as sticky: news recently broke of Don Jr.’s alleged affair with a Celebrity Apprentice contestant during the fifth season of the show.
Aubrey O’Day, a former Danity Kane band member, met Don Jr. on the set of Celebrity Apprentice in 2011, and the two reportedly engaged in an affair which continued until March 2012. At the time, Don Jr. was still married to his Vanessa Trump, and the couple had given birth to three of their five children.
“When it started, they were very serious all of a sudden,” a “source” close to O’Day told Us Weekly. “He told her it was over with his wife, that they were separated and he didn’t love her — all of that stuff … Aubrey fell for him hard. She thought they were going to be together for real.”
The affair ended abruptly when Vanessa discovered emails between O’Day and Trump Jr. The couple apparently resolved their issues eventually and went on to have two more children together before announcing their divorce on March 15.
Neither party has officially confirmed the affair, but O’Day did make a suggestive comment on the day Trump was elected in 2016. “I’m embarrassed to be an American,” she tweeted. When asked if she ever bothered to criticize Trump during her stint on Celebrity Apprentice, she cryptically replied, “No. My story I didn’t tell is worth millions now ? … this doesn’t hurt me, it hurts America.”
To add even more embarrassing fire to this ongoing soap opera, it seems that O’Day may have also written a song about Don Jr. on her solo album, Between Two Evils. O’Day’s lyrics for a song entitled “DJT” seem to be pretty obvious references to the president’s eldest son.
As Vulture reports, “the half-electronic torch song/half-extremely long phone call features a conversation between O’Day and a former lover, a man who has left her behind to return to his regular life.”
The cringe-inducing lyrics include phrases such as “You want to believe that everything with me was a lie?” and “What made you stop believing in our world?”

At the moment, this is all speculation based on anonymous Us Weekly sources and some vague song-writing. However, O’Day using Don Jr.’s initials as a song title certainly adds another log to the speculative fire.
Oh, and let’s not forget this “flirty” Twitter exchange between the two rumored lovebirds in October of 2011.

(For the record, I’m pretty sure that when Don Jr. sends you a winking emoji, you are automatically cursed for seven years.)
It’s unclear how this situation will pan out, but one thing’s for certain: it’s only Tuesday, and Don Jr. is already having a worse week than all of us.
