Tiffany Trump has come out swinging against allegations she maintained an “inappropriate” relationship with a “tall, dark and handsome” Secret Service agent.
A spokeswoman for the 27-year-old labelled the allegations as “nothing more than gossip” and “simply not true”.
Ms Trump’s alleged relationship with the Secret Service agent was made public earlier this week when a snippet of Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig’s new book Zero Fail: The Rise and Fall of the Secret Service was published in the paper.
The damning book from Leonnig, a three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, who won one for her 2015 report on failures and misconduct in the Secret Service, will hit shelves next week.
Leonnig’s book published claims that two members of the Trump family were “inappropriately — and perhaps dangerously — close” to members of the family’s security detail.

After Ms Trump and her boyfriend broke up, “she began spending an unusual amount of time alone with a Secret Service agent on her detail,” Leonnig wrote.
The time the two allegedly spent together prompted agency bosses to worry about “how close Tiffany appeared to be getting to the tall, dark, and handsome agent”.
The spokeswoman for Ms Trump lashed the explosive allegation in a statement.
“Tiffany’s experience with the Secret Service was entirely professional,” she said.
The “tall, dark and handsome agent” was later reassigned to a different job, despite he and Ms Trump denying any relationship.
Ms Trump became engaged to her fiance, Michael Boulos in January of this year, the day before her father Donald Trump left the White House.

She reportedly began dating Mr Boulos in late 2018, with the pair meeting in Greece while she was on holiday with actress Lindsay Lohan.
Mr Boulos is heir to Boulos Enterprises — a multi-billion dollar company based in Nigeria – and proposed to Ms Trump with a $1.2 million diamond ring.
Ms Trump is the only child of Donald Trump and his second wife, Marla Maples.
She holds a lesser public profile than her siblings but did make an appearance at the Republican National Convention last year to call for four more years for her father in the Oval Office.
“Our generation is unified in facing the future in uncertain times — and many of us are considering what kind of country we want to live in,” she said.
“As a recent graduate, I can relate to so many of you who might be looking for a job. My father built a thriving economy once, and believe me, he will do it again, based on results and not rhetoric.”
Second Trump family member allegedly involved with Secret Service
The second member of the Trump family Leonnig alleges had an “inappropriate” relationship with a Secret Service agent was Vanessa Trump.
Vanessa, who was married to the former president’s oldest child, Donald Trump Jr, from 2005 to 2018, is alleged to have “gotten very close to one of the agents who had been assigned to her family”.
Leonnig claims the agent who is alleged to have been with Vanessa, now 43, did not face any repercussions over the relationship because she was not being protected by the agency at the time.

The Secret Service hit back at the upcoming book in a statement to People.
“The US Secret Service is aware of an upcoming book which rehashes past challenges the agency overcame and evolved from,” a spokesperson said.
