Weeks after In Touch published an on-the-record 2011 interview with President Donald Trump’s former mistress, porn actress Stormy Daniels — in which she divulged details about their steamy 2006 affair — another woman’s story about having sexual relations with the real estate mogul has now surfaced.
On Friday, Feb, 16, The New Yorker published a story that accuses Donald, 71, of having an affair with former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal in 2006, a year after he tied the knot with now-First Lady Melania Trump.
According to the publication, Karen — who first met Donald at a Playboy Mansion party for his reality series The Apprentice — detailed their initial interaction in a written document. The New Yorker claims that Karen, now 46, confirmed the authenticity of the document, which was given to the outlet by a friend of hers.

"[Donald] immediately took a liking to me, kept talking to me - telling me how beautiful I was, etc. It was so obvious that a Playmate Promotions exec said, 'Wow, he was all over you - I think you could be his next wife,'" she wrote, later describing her relationship with Donald as consensual.
"I was so nervous! I was into his intelligence + charm. Such a polite man. We talked for a couple hours — then, it was ‘ON’! We got naked + had sex," she continued, before claiming that Donald offered her money after they had sex for the first time. "I looked at him (+ felt sad) + 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.'"
The New Yorker reports that Donald and Karen continued to sleep together and that the businessman even introduced her to some of his family. Donald’s affair allegedly began just months after Melania, now 47, gave birth to their son, Barron Trump, on March 20, 2006. In her bombshell interview with In Touch, Stormy, now 38, also said that she and Donald hooked up when Barron was an infant.
"At the time, I didn’t think that much about it," she explained. "But now that I have a baby that’s the same age that his was at the time, I’m like, 'Wow, what a d--k.' I feel bad. It didn’t occur to me at the time."
In response to the allegations about an affair with Karen, Donald denied the story through a White House spokesperson. "This is an old story that is just more fake news," the statement read. "The President says he never had a relationship with McDougal." He has also denied an affair with Stormy.
