A Playboy playmate who claims she had an affair with Donald Trump behind Melania’s back said he told her he loved her.
Speaking to Anderson Cooper Thursday, Karen McDougal said the pair told each other they loved one another ‘all the time.’
She added: ‘He always told me he loved me. He would call me baby, or he would call me beautiful Karen.
‘There was a real relationship, there were real feelings between us.’
Karen told AC360 how the fling began after Trump turned up at the Playboy mansion to film a Celebrity Apprentice special in 2006, a year after he married Melania.
He asked her out on a date, only for Karen to be shuttled in to a private bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where the pair had sex.
The affair, which Trump denies, is said to have continued for ten months, with Karen visiting the then-reality star at his various properties – including Trump Tower.
She described it as ‘very gold’ and said Trump pointed out the bedroom Melania slept in by herself.
Karen told of how Trump was ‘loving’ and ‘respectful’ during their affair, and how she would pay for flights and hotel tickets to see him, which he would later reimburse her for.
The model said she bought gifts for Trump – and that he told her he was remodeling an apartment in New York for her, but that the relationship ended before she had the chance to see it.
Karen was also shocked to hear Trump allegedly slept with porn star Stormy Daniels at a golfing weekend in Lake Tahoe she also attended.
She speculated that the alleged romp – which Trump also denied – could only have happened while he said he was out golfing, or after she left the hotel.
