Old photos of Melania Trump posing in the nude with other women have resurfaced.
The photo shoot took place in Manhattan in 1995, three years before Melania met Donald Trump, the New York Post reported. The photos show the Republican presidential candidate’s wife posing naked and lying in bed with another woman.
The photos were shot by French fashion photographer Jarl Ale de Basseville. Melania had been modeling under the name “Melania K” at the time, and the pictures were featured in Max magazine, a French men’s monthly magazine that folded in 2006.
In one of the photos, Melania is lying in bed with Scandinavian model Emma Eriksson. They are both naked, and Eriksson appears to be hugging Melania from behind. In another photo, Eriksson is seen preparing to strike Melania with a whip. Both models are clothed in that photo.
“I always loved women together, because I have been with a lot of women who desired the menage a trois,” de Basseville told the New York Post. “This is beauty and not porn. I am always shocked by the porn industry because they are destroying the emotion and the essence of purity and simplicity.”
Other photos feature just Melania, wearing only stilettos.
“I think it is important to show the beauty and freedom of the woman, and I am very proud of these pictures because they celebrate Melania’s beauty,’’ de Basseville said, adding that Melania was “super-great and a fantastic personality” and never once felt uncomfortable.
Donald Trump has since responded to the photos. The New York Post has endorsed Trump as its pick for president of the United States.
“Melania was one of the most successful models, and she did many photo shoots, including for covers and major magazines,” Trump told the New York Post. “This was a picture taken for a European magazine prior to my knowing Melania. In Europe, pictures like this are very fashionable and common.”
Melania has also modeled for Sports Illustrated, Vogue and other publications.
