Ex-model Amy Dorris who accused Trump of sexual assault ‘stayed in touch and planned tennis match with him’
Dorris has alleged that Trump shoved his tongue down her throat over two decades ago at the 1997 US Open tennis tournament
Former model Amy Dorris, who has accused President Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her, reportedly kept in touch with him after the incident and even played tennis with him, a friend of the model has claimed. Dorris alleged that Trump shoved his tongue down her throat over two decades ago at the 1997 US Open tennis tournament and the attack left her feeling "violated" and "sick."
Dorris' claim, however, came as a shock to the model's former roommate, Stacey Plymale, who spoke to the Daily Mail on Tuesday, September 22, saying: "Amy never talked about Donald Trump like she was scared of him. It was a surprise to hear her story." Stacey said that she moved into an apartment with Dorris and another woman in Boca Raton, Florida in June 1998, and that she was not the only one to witness her continued interaction with Trump. A personal injury lawyer, Shaun Plymale, who was dating Stacey at the time and later married her also said that he saw calls coming into the apartment from Trump on numerous occasions.
"I used to see the name Trump on their caller ID," Shaun claimed. "I know it was for Amy because she was the only one who had those connections." He also recalled of conversations about Dorris getting flown in Trump's jet to New York for the US Open in September 1998, a year after the alleged assault occurred. "I remember this because I tried to talk Amy into getting me on Trump's private jet to New York, but in the end, no one went up," he said. "She never mentioned being afraid or worried about being near Trump, that's for sure.”
Dorris opened up about the alleged sexual assault last week in an interview with Guardian, where she claimed that she spent several days with Trump in September 1997 after she was taken to New York for a long weekend by her former boyfriend, Jason Binn. The former model, who was 24 at the time, was living with her friends in Florida and regularly traveled to Miami for her career and acting work. Her former boyfriend, Binn, founder of multiple luxury fashion and lifestyle magazines, reportedly described Trump as his "best friend" in 1999.
Dorris, who is now 48, alleged that Trump accosted her outside the bathroom in his VIP box at the tournament in New York on September 5, 1997. She added that Trump forced his tongue down her throat, assaulting her all over her body, and held her in such a tight grip that she was unable to escape.
"He just shoved his tongue down my throat and I was pushing him off. And then that’s when his grip became tighter and his hands were very gropey and all over my butt, my breasts, my back, everything," she told the outlet. "I was in his grip, and I couldn’t get out of it. I don’t know what you call that when you’re sticking your tongue just down someone’s throat. But I pushed it out with my teeth. I was pushing it. And I think I might have hurt his tongue."
Dorris is the latest of nearly 17 women to publicly accuse President Trump of sexual misconduct. Trump, at the time of the alleged attack on Dorris, was 51 and married to his second wife Marla Maples.
