“A long time ago, before I was married, I met Kelly Preston at a club and worked like hell to try and pick her up,” Trump allegedly wrote of the actress in the post dedicated to Jett, who died at the age of 16 following a seizure. “She was beautiful, personable, and definitely had allure. At the time I had no idea she was married to John Travolta.”

Trump reportedly continued: “In any event, my track record on this subject has always been outstanding, but Kelly wouldn’t give me the time of day. She was very nice, very elegant, but I didn’t have a chance with her, and that was that. When I later found out she was married to John, I liked and respected her even more. Some people have values that matter to them, and she is one of them.”

The businessman allegedly concluded his post by offering the family condolences.

The resurfaced blog post comes just weeks after 2005 audio of the controversial Republican presidential candidate leaked. In it, he bragged to former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush about flirting with married women and grabbing women by their genitals.

The former Apprentice host has also been slammed for bashing women throughout his campaign, and, as previously reported, been accused by numerous women of sexual misconduct.

“Mr. Trump was praising the integrity of Ms. Preston and the strength she had when persevering through the tragedy of losing a child—something that no parent should have to endure,” Trump’s campaign told Us in a statement when asked for comment.

Us Weekly has reached out to Preston for comment.
