Former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos, who accused Donald Trump of groping her, put out a new statement on Saturday with details about the cousin who is denying her claims.
John Barry, who released a statement rebutting her story via the Trump campaign Friday, is a “huge Trump supporter” and was recently fired from Zervos’s family restaurant, said the statement by attorney Gloria Allred, according to the Huffington Post.

“Since then he has expressed hostility and ill will towards Summer,” the statement reads.
The statement from Barry denied Zervos’s story, saying that she has been a supporter of Trump, and claimed she was making allegations against Trump in order to get back on television.
The Saturday statement from Allred also included details of another witness to Zervos’s assault.
“Today we were contacted by Ann Russo who remembers that years earlier Summer confided in Ann about what Summer said Mr. Trump did to her,” the statement says.
“This is now a third person who has corroborated that Summer told people who were close to her what she alleges Mr. Trump did to her.”
