Vanessa Trump reportedly pleaded with Aubrey O'Day to end her relationship with Donald Trump Jr. in a furious phone call.
Bu the pair only broke off their liaisons when the President intervened and told his son to 'make his marriage work', it is claimed.
Donald Trump Jr. and the former The Celebrity Apprentice contestant's affair reportedly began after they met on the US show in 2011.
O'Day has 'proof' they had a sexual relationship for months but said it had nothing to do with his divorce six years later, sources told TMZ.
Trump told her his marriage had fallen apart and he was going to leave his wife Vanessa, who knew about the affair, the sources claim.
Vanessa flew into a rage after finding emails sent to O'Day by her husband, it was previously reported.
Sources claim she then rang the star and pleaded with her to end the affair.
Donald Trump eventually intervened, telling his son to end the relationship and 'focus on his marriage to make it work', TMZ reported.
Trump Jr. quickly broke off the alleged affair with O'Day, who is 'devastated' to be called a homewrecker, the sources claim.
She says she was told his marriage was already over and claims her affair did not trigger the couple's divorce six years later, sources told TMZ.
O'Day, who reportedly did not sign a non-disclosure agreement, is said to be 'lost' and unwilling to come forward to tell her side of the story, according to the sources.
Speculation over her and Trump Jr.'s relationship was fueled when she posted a photograph of herself cozying up in bed with a mystery man back in 2012.
'My babe is protecting my feet from bunions attacks. True Love Feet,' wrote O'Day on March 24 of that year on Twitter.
She then shared a picture showing her feet being covered by those of a man.
The man is not identified, but a side-by-side comparison reveals that the feet are remarkably similar in appearance to those of Donald Trump Jr.

O'Day shot to 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 headlines over the years for her life outside the recording studio, dating Jersey Shore star Paul 'Pauly D' DelVecchio, DJ Cassidy and Evan Ross.
In a 2012 podcast, Aubrey O'Day shared details of her 'spanx-ripping' romp with a high-profile mystery man.
O'Day was recorded on the 'Risk!' podcast in December 2012, just eight months after she and Donald Trump Jr ended their alleged affair.
'I was walking through the hallways and got pulled into this bathroom and he threw me up against the wall and looked at me for two seconds and then we started making out like crazy,' she said during the podcast.
A source told Page Six that the unnamed man O'Day talked about during the podcast could actually be rap mogul Russell Simmons, who has been accused of sexual misconduct, including rape, by more than a dozen women.
