Aubrey O’Day has claimed that Donald Trump Jr once tried to blackmail her with a thumb drive full of explicit photos that could be released to keep her quiet.
O’Day, 36, who is widely rumored to have had an affair with Trump Jr while he was still married to ex-wife Vanessa, made the wild claim on Twitter.
Responding to a Trump Jr tweet about the government conspiring against his father, O’Day wrote: ‘Conspire against? Wait.. isn’t that the same thing you did to me when you discussed having a thumb drive of naked pictures and information about me that could be released in order to silence & discredit me if need be?’
Mailonline has contacted spokespeople for Donald Trump Jr and The Trump Organisation for comment.

Trump Jr has never confirmed his affair with O’Day, but sources close to the Dainty Kane singer say the tryst began in 2011 when she appeared on Celebrity Apprentice.
It is thought the affair lasted until March of the following year, at which point Trump Jr broke it off.
At the time he was married to wife Vanessa, and the pair had three children – daughter Kai, and sons Donald Trump III and Tristan.
They went on to have son Spencer and daughter Chloe, before getting a divorce in March 2018.
A short time later, Trump Jr announced he was in a relationship with ex-Fox News presenter Kimberly Guilfoyle.
Those close to O’Day say she was besotted with Trump Jr and he felt likewise, offering to leave Vanessa to be with her.
The source 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.

Trump Jr has been actively campaigning for his father post-election, urging him to ‘fight to the death’ to overturn the result during a November 6 rally
‘Aubrey fell for him hard. She thought they were going to be together for real.’
But after several months of romance, the source claims that Trump’s family pressured him to break it off, which he ultimately did.
Vanessa is also thought to have called O’Day and put her children on the phone after finding out about the affair.
O’Day did not make it clear at which point Trump Jr made his alleged threat.
Both O’Day and Trump Jr have been active on Twitter since the November 3 election, which was won by Joe Biden – though Trump has not yet conceded.
O’Day has come out swinging for the Democrats, saying she ‘cannot wait’ for the transfer of power to be complete and tweeting about Obama’s memoir.
Meanwhile Trump Jr has come out to bat for his father, retweeting unfounded claims of election fraud and attacking Democrat Raphael Warnock, who is running in a key Senate election in Georgia in January.
Aubrey publicly called Donald Jr. her ‘ex’ for the first time during the season premiere of MTV’s Ex on the Beach, last year, before also calling him her ‘soulmate.’
She also split from Jersey Shore’s Paul ‘DJ Pauly D’ DelVecchio in July 2017, and it is not clear if she is currently dating.
As well as her singing and TV career, the star made a name for herself opting for daring red carpet ensembles, often wearing very little while turning up to events.
