First Lady Melania Trump has publicly spoke out for the first time since former aide and ex-friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff wrote a tell-all book about their relationship, saying the move was “an attempt to be relevant.”

In a letter-style post published on the official White House website on Friday, the first lady described Wolkoff as being “a person who said she ‘made me’ even though she hardly knew me” and “someone who clung to me after my husband won the presidency.”

Wolkoff, who was friends with Melania Trump for ten years, acted as an unpaid adviser to her in the first year of the Trump administration and also oversaw the planning for President Trump’s 2017 inauguration. She later resigned amid controversy over the inauguration’s finances.

In August, the ex-friend published a damning book about the first lady, titled “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with The First Lady.”

“Her ‘memoir’ included blaming me for her ailing health from an accident she had long ago, and for bad news coverage that she brought upon herself and others. Never once looking within at her own dishonest behavior and all in an attempt to be relevant,” the first lady wrote in the statement. “These kinds of people only care about their personal agenda — not about helping others.”
