It is also revealed that this publicist, Chuck Jones, would later testify that while he was working for Maples, she 'brought singer Michael Bolton back to her room following [Donald] Trump's departure from a west coast trip.' It was during that first trial that Jones made claims about Maples taking Bolton back to her room at the Trump Parc, which occurred just before she married the future president. Her beau at the time was not unaware of the history between the two, and even spoke about Bolton in an interview with Vanity Fair. Trump said that after one break-up, Maples sought solace in the arms of the singer.
'She was very hurt. Michael Bolton calls Marla and says, "Marla, I’d like to take you out." And he falls madly in love with her,' said Trump.'Now, I say to myself, Wait a minute. I don’t like this. Michael Bolton—he’s got the No. 1 f***ing album in the world, Time, Love and Tenderness, and what that does to a guy like me, a competitive guy, it’s like an affirmation that the girl has to be great, because the No. 1 singer has fallen for her.'
