Donald Trump Jr’s ex-wife had a relationship with one of the Secret Service agents assigned to protect their family, according to a new book.

The upcoming Zero Fail: The Rise and Fall of the Secret Service, by Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig, says Vanessa Trump became “inappropriately — and perhaps dangerously — close” to members of the security detail. 

It is unclear when the relationship began - she filed for divorce in March 2018.

According to the book - which has been seen by The Guardian - Trump’s daughter Tiffany also “began spending an unusual amount of time alone” with an agent after a breakup.

Agency officials “became concerned at how close Tiffany appeared to be getting to the tall, dark and handsome agent,” Leonnig wrote.

The agent was reassigned, and she denies the relationship was anything other than professional.

Tiffany has been dating Michael Boulos since 2019 after they first met at Lindsay Lohan’s club in Mykonos in 2018.

The book is billed as “the first definitive account of the rise and fall of the Secret Service, from the Kennedy assassination to the alarming mismanagement of the Obama and Trump years, right up to the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6.”

Leonnig is the co-author of another Trump book, A Very Stable Genius.

The book also claims that Trump once complained about some of his Secret Service agents being too overweight for the job, allegedly ranting: “I want these fat guys off my detail. How are they going to protect me and my family if they can’t run down the street?”

Before leaving office in January, Donald Trump extended Secret Service protection for his adult children for six months.

The latest revelations could make for awkward conversations between him and his security detail: former presidents and first ladies receive lifetime security.
