Chelsea Clinton has criticized Ivanka Trump, saying she hasn’t spoken to her former boyfriend since she “crossed over to the dark side” nearly six years ago.
Chelsea, 42, made the revelation in an interview “Watch Live What Happens With Andy Cohen” Thursday night, where she was joined by mother, Hillary, 74.
“I’d say we were friends,” Chelsea said of her relationship with Ivanka, 40. “She’s not the person I called when I was curious about something for my kids or when I was discussing a life decision, but we were definitely friends. And then she went to the dark side.”
The pair last spoke in November 2016, shortly after Chelsea’s mother lost the presidential election to Ivanka’s father, Donald.
During the conversation with Andy Cohen, Chelsea also insinuated that Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, lied about a claim in his new book “Breaking History.”
Jared wrote that Ivanka had reached out to Chelsea after the bitter 2016 election and invited her to dinner so that they would continue to have a “warm relationship.”
“It is true that I spoke to Ivanka in November 2016, it is the last time I spoke to her,” Chelsea said. “But I don’t remember being invited to dinner.”
The couple – who both have three children of about the same age – were friends for years before politics came between them. The Post has reached out to Trump representatives for comment on Clinton’s latest revelations.
In 2015, Chelsea told People, “Friendship has always been more important than politics. That’s what I learned growing up, watching my parents befriend people from across the political spectrum in Arkansas.”
Later that year, she told Vogue: “I still consider her [Ivanka] a very good friend, and she considers me too. We have a great relationship.”
“She is always aware of everyone around her and makes sure everyone is enjoying the moment.” Chelsea cooed further. “It’s a realization that in a way reminds me of my father, and his ability to increase the joy of the room. There’s nothing skin deep about Ivanka.’
In August 2016, three months before the election, Ivanka told Harper’s Bazaar, “I still consider her a very good friend, and she considers me too. We have a great relationship.”
“I am not running for public office, and neither is she, so of course we are still friends,” she added.
However, Chelsea later changed her tune, telling Andy Cohen in 2020: “I have no interest in being friends with anyone who is not only complicit, but also takes an active part in this government’s daily clash of cruelty and incompetence.”
She added: “We were in touch at the beginning of the campaign, but it’s just really hard when there’s someone who actively embraces their candidate, whether it’s their father or not, who deals in racism and sexism and anti-Semitism and Islamophobia and homophobia and transphobia and conspiracy theories and lies and is so fundamentally corrupt.”
Chelsea was in the headlines this week, joining mom Hillary on the talk show circuit to promote their new Apple TV+ series ‘Gusty’.
Earlier this week, Chelsea told the women of ‘The View’ that Donald Trump has “hate” in America. Meanwhile, Hillary was roasted for comments on the same show about Trump’s possession of classified documents, given her own history of having business emails on a private server.
