Where is Kara Young now? Donald Trump's biracial ex-GF claims she got intelligence from her 'white side’
Supermodel Kara Young and Donald Trump started dating in 1997, between the ex-POTUS's second and third marriages
47-year-old biracial model Kara Young, who dated Donald Trump in the late 90s, has confirmed that the 76-year-old former president told her that she got her intelligence from her father’s side of the family, “the white side.” She confirmed a story from Maggie Haberman’s book ‘Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America,’ where Trump joked that she got “beauty” from her black mother and “intelligence” from her white father.
In an interview, Inside Edition's Deborah Norville asked Young, "Kara, you and I have been friends forever. You have specifically asked me not to talk about your old friendship with Donald Trump. Why are you speaking now?" Young responded, "When something’s said for years and years and years, and you never say anything back, that got as frustrating as if I spoke all the time. Young, who was asked out by Trump in 1997 after he divorced his second wife Marla Maples, said, "I didn’t think I was going to like him, because he wasn’t my type. I didn’t think he was my type, but it just ends up happening. I know it’s hard to believe, he’s very funny and he had a really good personality. There was never any enemy or ‘I hate you.’ There was none of that with us."
After dating for two years, Trump ended up marrying Melania and Young married Peter Georgiopoulos, the Greek shipping magnate. However, following Trump's election in 2016 as the 45th president of the United States, Young says that her phone would start ringing every time there was a story about him with a racial overtone, Inside Edition reports. She said, “It was very, very hard at that time not to say things. I was confused like, should I say something? Should I not say something?”
'It’s not funny'
Young pointed out an anecdote from New York Times reporter Haberman’s new book which prompted her to speak out now. Responding to the excerpt from the book, where Haberman wrote, "Trump told [Young] that she had gotten her beauty from her mother and her intelligence 'from her dad, the white side," Young said that it is true. “It sounds — when someone says something in jest — are they kidding? I don’t know,” she said.
However, Young said that she corrected him after he said this. “It wasn’t a fight or anything like that, it was just more like — ‘No. Don't say that, it’s not funny.' He said ‘I was just joking, I was just kidding. No, I don’t think that,'" she added. "You don’t have to ask me how someone is. You can see how they are by what they say and the comments they make.”
