A British news anchor and friend of the late Princess Diana claims that real estate mogul and current Republican 2016 frontrunner Donald Trump “practically stalked” Diana after she divorced Prince Charles.
The New York Daily News reported Monday on claims by Selina Scott, a confidante of Diana’s and former morning news anchor, who said that Trump saw Diana as “the ultimate trophy wife.”
“He bombarded Diana at Kensington Palace with massive bouquets of flowers, each worth hundreds of pounds,” Scott said in the Sunday Times of London.
“As the roses and orchids piled up at her apartment she became increasingly concerned about what she should do. It had begun to feel as if Trump was stalking her,” she recounted.
Scott said that Diana asked her, “What am I going to do? He gives me the creeps.”
When Diana died in a Paris car accident while fleeing the paparazzi, Trump reportedly told friends that he deeply regretted never having dated her.
He wrote in his 1997 book The Art of the Comeback, “I only have one regret in the women department — that I never had the opportunity to court Lady Diana Spencer. I met her on a number of occasions. I couldn’t help but notice how she moved people. She lit up the room with her charm, her presence. She was a genuine princess — a dream lady.”
