BREAKING NEWS: Donald Trump Jr's wife Vanessa hospitalized after opening letter with white powder inside
Donald Trump Jr pursued Aubrey O'Day after meeting her on the set of Celebrity Apprentice and told her that he would leave his wife Vanessa so the two could be together, according to a new report.
US Weekly spoke with multiple source about the affair, with one revealing: 'He called her all the time and really cared about her. He was giving her a lot of advice on her career. She’s actually a bright girl, way smarter than people realize.'
That source added that Don Jr 'fell hard' for the singer, at which point he said that he would leave his wife.
It all ended in March 2012 however when Vanessa found an email exchange between the pair.
Arsenio Hall, who appeared alongside Don Jr and O'Day on Celebrity Apprentice, seemed to confirm the rumors on Tuesday when he tweeted: 'The year @clayaiken ... and I were on Celebrity Apprentice garnered great reality TV for NBC. But we both used to say that the GREATER show, was going on behind the scenes.'
Pursuit: 'Apparently, the 40-year-old was very aggressive in pursuing the former Danity Kane artist - telling Aubrey he loved her,' claims Perez Hilton (O'Day and Don Jr on set in 2011)

In October of 2011, Vanessa gave birth to the couple's third child, son Tristan.
She then became pregnant in early 2012 before giving birth to son Spencer in October of that year.
Sources claim that Don Jr told O'Day he and Vanessa had split at the time, which is why she agreed to the relationship.
Don Jr has not commented on these reports and was seen golfing with his youngest daughter Chloe on Tuesday in Palm Beach.
Other clues are being exposed via Twitter, with O'Day's Celebrity Apprentice co-star Clay Aiken responding to a claim that she was the one pursuing Don Jr by writing: 'My gut tells me the story got a tiny piece wrong. Reverse those two names.'
O'Day had also previously hinted at having some damning information about the Trump family following the election.
In the wake of President Trump's win the 34-year-old singer wrote: 'I’m embarrassed to be an American.'
When a follower then pointed out she had appeared on Trump's reality show, O'Day replied: 'No. my story I didn’t tell is worth millions now … this doesn’t hurt me, it hurts America.'
In another tweet around that time, O'Day wrote: 'I don't have a nondisclosure and trump is lucky I haven't said what I know. He is garbage.'
O'Day later deleted those tweets.
The tweet still managed to spark rumors of a possible affair between O'Day and one of the Trump men, though no concrete evidence has ever been provided to prove that there was any relationship.

Fun and games: It was President Trump who reportedly told Don Jr to 'knock it off' and return to his wife (Trump and O'Day on the set of Apprentice)

'It was him who chased her,' said one source familiar with the situation.
'He told her that his marriage was already in the process of dissolving.'
A second source claimed that it was Don Jr's father who had to eventually step in and tell his son to 'knock it off,' encouraging him to return to his wife Vanessa.
The Page Six report also reveals that sources told them O'Day was very much in love with Don Jr and never after his money.
She also never received any money from him to keep quiet according to those same sources.
Late Monday afternoon O'Day shared a selfie in her underwear to Instagram with the caption: 'I’m only interested in the things money can’t buy.'
She was reportedly 'devastated' when her husband said he planned to leave her for the singer.
O'Day shot top fame back in 2005, the same year that Don Jr and Vanessa were married at his father's Palm Beach estate, Mar-a-Lago.
She was a contestant on the MTV program Making the Band, and selected by Sean 'P Diddy' Combs to become part of the girl group Danity Kane.
The group enjoyed a successful run in the aughts, at which time their first two albums debuted at the top of the charts.
They also had a number of hit singles, with their song Damaged charting in the top ten on Billboard and earning the group two MTV Video Music Award nominations in 2008.
O'Day had split from the group by that point and her solo efforts failed to repeat the success she had with Danity Kane.
Then, in 2012, she was back in television on Celebrity Apprentice.
O'Day also managed to grab headline over the years for her life outside the recording studio, dating Jersey Shore star Paul 'Pauly D' DelVecchio, DJ Cassidy and Evan Ross.
Donald Trump Jr's wife Vanessa Trump was hospitalized Monday morning after opening a letter with an unidentified white powder inside.
The former model, 40, was at her apartment on East 54th street around 10am when she opened the letter addressed to her husband and noticed the white powder.
She was taken to New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center as a precaution, New York City Fire Department officials said.
The incident recalled the scary days after 9/11 when letters containing lethal anthrax spores were sent to the offices of several politicians and media outlets - resulting in five deaths.

Police are investigating what the white powder in the letter was, but sources told NBC that there's no indication it was hazardous.
Donald Jr, 40, is the eldest son of President Trump, followed by his sister Ivanka, 36; brother Eric, 34; half-sister Tiffany, 24; and half-brother Barron, 11.
As a child of the president, Donald Jr and his family were assigned a Secret Service detail when his father was elected. He voluntarily gave up his Secret Service protection in September, wanting more privacy, but his detail was reinstated about a week later.

Don Jr and model Vanessa Hayden married in August 2005 at his father’s Mar-a-lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. The pair were actually introduced by the future president when Don Jr attended a fashion show with his father the previous year. Having met at the beginning of the show, Trump Sr was said to be so smitten with Vanessa that he re-introduced his son to her at intermission. ‘Donald comes back up to me again, “I don’t think you’ve met my son Donald Trump Jr,’ Vanessa told The New York Times in 2006. She responded "Yeah, we just met, five minutes ago".
The couple finally started a relationship after being introduced a third time at a party by a mutual friend. Trump Jr, then 26, proposed to her in front of a jewelry store, complete with paparazzi, with a $100,000 engagement ring, which he is said to have wrangled for free in return for publicity.
They have five children, daughters Kai, 10, and Chloe, three; and sons Donald III, eight, Tristan, six, and Spencer, five – all of whom regularly feature on Don Jr’s Instagram account.
Since his father and sister Ivanka moved to Washington, DC., Donald Jr and his younger brother Eric have taken over control of their family company.
