Trump faked ex-wife Marla Maples' voice to score 'Best Sex I've Ever Had' scoop for newspaper cover story: Report
President Donald Trump was known to notoriously pretend to be other people while calling up reporters before he was elected to lead a country. During one of the many instances in the past, he is rumored to have faked the voice of his second wife, Marla Maples, in order to get a newspaper to run the story of her claiming to have the 'best sex' of her life with him.
Trump met Maples in 1985 and their affair became public in 1989 before he divorced his first wife, Ivana, who he was married to for 14 years and shared three children with. Maples was a model at the time she started dating Trump, quite like his third wife, Melania. Maples became pregnant with their daughter, Tiffany, in 1993, before she was married to Trump. As a result, the model-turned-actress became increasingly anxious to tie the knot as soon as possible after they became parents.
But before she walked the down the aisle to say 'I do', then-business mogul Trump called the office of New York Post, demanding the newspaper run a front-page story on him, according to journalist Jill Brookes. The reporter told the Mirror that her editor at the time, Jerry Nachman, told the business magnate "Donald, you just don't demand a front-page story. There has to be a story". But Trump would not listen, and kept pressing on, wanting to know what would usually be a front-page worthy scoop. "It's usually murder, money or sex,'' Nachman said.
Trump's response came immediately without hesitation or delay: "Marla says with me it's the best sex she's ever had". Brookes recalled her editor being very interested in the story, telling the current president that he would need to back his claims. Trump could be heard shouting in the background "Marla, didn't you say it's the best sex you ever had with me?"
Brookes said that they then heard a faint female voice in the background saying, "Yes, Donald,'' and this was all the newspaper needed as proof to run one of the most infamous headlines of its history, 'Best Sex I've Ever Had!' on the front page. However, years later, when reports claimed that Trump was known to impersonate other voices to reporters on the phone on a number of occasions Brookes said that she "still can't be sure whether the voice in the room was really hers (Maples')".
Further doubts were cast on whether Maples ever made the admission when she was approached by reporters on her way to jury duty two years ago. When she was asked if she ever made the claim, she said, "I never said that someone else said that. [But] is it true? I’m not going to talk about that. The truth will come out, just not here." She concluded her statement with a wink.
Maples has mostly stayed out the limelight since her split with Trump, mostly spending her time traveling. Occasionally, she posts pictures of Tiffany on social media to mark the important milestones of her daughter's life. In April, she shared two photos of the 25-year-old on her Instagram page and praised her for the hard work and the commitment she has shown in her studies. The first picture was of Tiffany before she embarked on her "last first day" at Georgetown University, where she is currently pursuing a degree in law.
The second was a throwback picture to Tiffany's first day of kindergarten in September 1999. It shows the pair holding hands and smiling at the camera as they get themselves ready for the big day. Maples accompanied the post with a sweet caption where she gushed about how much her daughter had grown over the years, and wrote, "I love you my girl and so proud of your commitment to your education and I thank God for the deep wisdom you possess beyond. I just wish I could still drive you to school like all those beautiful years in Cali, saying prayers together on the way."
