A new book about Melania Trump claims that she thinks her husband’s former adviser, Roger Stone, was behind leaking nude photographs of her to the New York Post, according to the Guardian.
The book, “Free, Melania: The Unauthorized Biography,” is written by CNN correspondent Kate Bennett, and will be released on Tuesday.
The photographs in question are nude modeling shots of Melania from a shoot in 1996.
They were originally published in a French magazine, but later leaked to the Post anonymously in 2016 and published on its cover.
Stone’s wife Nydia and the White House press Secretary Stephanie Grisham slammed the book and denied the claims made by Bennett.
“The suspicion asserted in Kate Bennett’s book is categorically false and completely illogical,” Nydia said.
