SHOCKING! US tabloid publishes nude photos of Donald Trump's wife Melania, sets internet on fire

New York: There seems to be no end in sight to controversies related to Donald Trump.

Now, a US tabloid grabbed headlines on Sunday and yes it has Donald Trump connection!

Shockingly, a tabloid has published nude photos of US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's wife Melania.

The name of this tabloid is New York Post.

The post by the tabloid went massively viral on Twitter; got hundreds of likes and retweets.

The photos were taken during a 1995 modelling session in Manhattan and were published by defunct French men`s magazine Max, the tabloid reported.

"This was a picture taken for a European magazine prior to my knowing Melania. In Europe, pictures like this are very fashionable and common," Efe news quoted Donald Trump as telling the Post.

The Slovenia-born model was 25 when the photos were taken and was working under the name Melania K when she posed for French photographer Ale de Basseville.

"Melania was super-great and a fantastic personality and she was very kind with me," De Basseville told the tabloid.

The modelling session took place shortly after Melania arrived in the Big Apple and three years before she met Trump at a New York Fashion Week party.

"Melania was one of the most successful models and she did many photo shoots, including for covers and major magazines," Donald Trump said.

The former model, who is now 46, and the billionaire real estate developer were married in 2005 at his Mar-a-Lago resort at Palm Beach, Florida.
