Aubrey O'Day recently found herself in the center of the media coverage surrounding the impending divorce between Donald Trump Jr. and his wife Vanessa Trump after 12 years of marriage. The former Danity Kane singer and Playboy cover star, who was most recently romantically linked to Jersey Shore DJ Pauly D, was outed Monday for allegedly having an affair with the president's son from late 2011 to March 2012.
“When it started, they were very serious all of a sudden,” an anonymous source claiming to be in Aubrey's inner circle 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 source also said that they "weren't the most careful either."
Aubrey O'Day and Donald Trump Jr. are pictured on the set of Celebrity Apprentice on October 26, 2011 in New York City.
This led to speculation that two songs Aubrey released after the alleged affair refer to Donald Trump Jr. and that the lyrics to both are about a failed relationship. The first song was 2012's remake of Gotye's international hit "Somebody That I Used to Know," which she switched up to include her own scathing and profane lyrics.
Her version of the chorus goes, "But you didn't have to cut me off / Tell your wife it never happened and that we were nothing / And I don't even need your love / But you treat me like a stranger / And it feels so rough / No you didn't have to stoop so low / Tell me you were leaving and that she could never make you happy / I guess you'd like to keep me though / 'Cause now you're just somebody that I used to know."
An aptly-titled slow song called "DJT" emerged the following year on her Between Two Evils album. It's a fictional conversation between Aubrey and her former lover in which she's desperately seeking closure. The lyrics include pointed questions such as, "Is that what you want? You want to believe that everything with me was a lie? A fantasy? And you want to go back and live in the life that you had have forever?"
"Celebrity Apprentice was probably my favorite show I've ever been on," she said. "I was thriving at it. And there were two female producers that came up to me, pulled me aside and said, 'You're running circles around everyone. We didn't expect that from you and we respect that and we're rooting for you and so we're trying to help you. Bottom line, [then show host Donald] Trump doesn't think you're pretty.'"
The producers told her what she needed to do to continue on the show.
"'If you want to stay in the game, you need to follow these simple rules,'" she shared. "And the rules were: start parting my hair down the center, wearing it straight and pushing my tits up in tight outfits. I would have been sent home if I didn't start looking hotter in the eyes of almighty one that's now our president."
