Donald Trump Jr.'s estranged wife, Vanessa Trump, reportedly called Aubrey O'Day on the phone and confronted her after discovering her husband was allegedly having an affair with the reality TV star.
After reading sexy emails between Donald Jr. and Aubrey -- who allegedly sparked a romance towards the end of taping Season 5 of The Celebrity Apprentice when she was a contestant and he was an adviser -- Vanessa went straight to the source, Us Weeklyreported.
"She called Aubrey with her kids on the phone," a source told Us of the heated confrontation that took place in early 2012.
When the alleged months-long affair was happening, Vanessa and Donald Jr. were parents to Kai Madison, now 10, Donald III, now 9, and Tristan, now 6.
Vanessa reportedly intended to shame Aubrey on the phone and guilt her into staying away from Donald Jr.
"Vanessa went crazy and was super jealous," another source told the magazine, who previously reported the affair was serious and Donald Jr. was equally as taken with Aubrey's looks as he was impressed by her intellect.
Once Vanessa reportedly found out about her husband and Aubrey's affair, Donald Jr. called it quits on his romance with the former Danity Kane singer, who found fame when she competed on Season 3 of MTV's Making the Band and most recently appeared on Famously Single.
Donald Jr. also received pressure from his family, including from his father and now-President Donald Trump Sr., to end things with Aubrey, according to Us.
So Donald Jr. and Aubrey's affair allegedly lasted from the end of 2011 through March 2012 although she "fell for him hard" and he "really cared about her," and Vanessa held on to that secret for six years.
On election night in November 2016, Aubrey actually tweeted, "My story I didn't tell is worth millions now."
Donald Jr. and Vanessa decided to stay married and work through their issues after the scandal, and they went on to welcome two more children into their lives: Spencer, now 5, and Chloe, now 3.
But rocky times apparently led Vanessa down the road of wanting a divorce. She officially filed the divorce paperwork on March 15.
"After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways," the couple said in a statement obtained by Us earlier this week.
"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."
