New claims have come out against Donald Trump, this time claiming he fired Khloe Kardashian from Celebrity Apprentice because of her appearance.

During the 2009 season of the show, Trump claimed he was firing the reality TV star from the show because of a previous DUI (driving under the influence), but that was just a cover, the Huffington Post reports.

An editor on the show claims: "he basically wanted to just get rid of her. He called her a 'piglet'".


While another editor said: "When they fired [her], it wasn't on merit. It was on him not liking her."

Another source apparently connected to the show, accused Trump, 70, of saying even worse during the 2009 show.

"He said: 'Why don't we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?'."

According to the Huffington Post, the offending remarks were made off-camera.

Trump had been told he couldn't fire Kardashian simply because he thought she was "fat" or "ugly" so he instead put it down to a DUI arrest she failed to disclose.

It's not the first time Trump's remarked over a Kardashian's weight. He also commented on Kim Kardashian West during her first pregnancy, telling Showbiz Tonight:

"She's gotten a little bit large. I would say this; I don't think you should dress like you weigh 120 pounds."
