Aubrey O’Day has made her first public statement since news of her affair with Donald Trump Jr. went viral.
But it’s not exactly a formal statement.
Far from it, in fact.
The former Danity Kane singer and Celebrity Apprentice cast member allegedly slept with the President’s son for many months in 2011, while Donald Jr. was married to wife Vanessa.
(Who was pregnant with her third child at the time, it should be noted.)
Multiple outlets have confirmed this relationship, with many sources claiming this was the opposite of a fling.
The feelings on both sides were apparently quite serious, with O’Day convinced Trump was going to leave his wife for her.
Heck, one recent report alleged that O’Day and Trump had discussed having a baby together!
Despite O’Day not having talked about this affair, and despite Trump being the one who was married at the time of their banging, Aubrey is the one who has been getting flak online.
And we mean A LOT of flak.
She’s been slammed across social media, referred to as every mean name in the book… and now O’Day is fighting back.
To some small extent at least.
“embrace the shade,” the 34-year-old singer captioned the first photo we shared in this article, making it clear just how she plans on handling the hate.
Simply put, she will embrace it.
An O’Day insider recently told Us Weekly that when this affair started, the stars were “very serious all of a sudden,” adding that “he told her it was over with his wife, that they were separated and he didn’t love her – all of that stuff.”
Eventually, however, Vanessa Trump discovered emails between Donald and O’Day.
She supposedly called O’Day and made her feel guilty about the romance by having her two kids on the line.
Sort of weird. But effective, we guess.
In the end, however, it was Donald Trump Sr. who reportedly learned of the affair and told his son to cut it out.
(We’re shocked The Donald didn’t shake his son’s hand and congratulate him instead. But that’s another story.)
Earlier this month, six years after this affair ended, Vanessa Trump filed for divorce.
Said the Trumps in a joint statement:
“After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways.
We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority.
We ask for your privacy during this time.
