Pornstar Jessica Drake Accuses Donald Trump of Sexual Misconduct, Offering $10,000 to Sleep with Her
Add adult film actress Jessica Drake to a growing list of women accusing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump of inappropriate sexual behavior.
Flanked by attorney Gloria Allred, Drake held a news conference Saturday, October 22, detailing an alleged encounter with Trump that began during a 2006 golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, California.
“Ten years ago, I was working for Wicked Pictures, an adult film company, at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe,” Drake said during the press conference. “I was at Wicked’s booth when I met Donald Trump in the celebrity gift room early in the morning before he teed off. He flirted with me and invited me to walk along the golf course with him, which I did. During that time, he asked me for my phone number, which I gave to him. Later that evening, he invited me to his room. I said I didn’t feel right going alone, so two other women came with me.”
“In the penthouse suite, I met Donald again,” she continued. “When we entered the room, he grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission. He was wearing pajamas. A bodyguard was also present. He asked me about details on my job as an adult film star — about shooting porn, and he also asked us about our personal relationships and whether we were married or single. We answered his questions. It felt like an interview. About 30 or 45 minutes later, we left his room.”
“Then Donald called. He asked me to return to his suite and have dinner with him,” Drake said. “He also invited me to a party; I declined. Donald then asked me, ‘What do you want? How much?’ I told him that I couldn’t because I had to return to L.A. for work. I said that as an excuse because I didn’t want him to continue asking me, and I didn’t want to be with him. After that, I received another call from either Donald, or a male calling on his behalf, offering me $10,000. I declined again and once more gave, as an excuse, that I had to return to Los Angeles for work. I was then told Mr. Trump would allow me to use his private jet only if I accepted his private invitation.”
Drake is the 12th woman to come forward accusing the former star of “The Apprentice” of sexual misconduct.
