A woman claiming to be Ivanka Trump's former "best friend" penned a scathing article for Vanity Fair describing the first daughter's brutal behavior in high school, including Accusing others of getting out of trouble and making snobby remarks in private.
Lysandra Ohrstrom, a 38-year-old journalist who writes for The Observer and Huffington Post, attended Chapin, an all-girls private school on the Upper East Side, with Ivanka as a teenager. She also stood at her wedding in 2009 with Jared Kushner as one of two "maids of honor".
She says the two were close until immediately after the wedding and that their friendship broke because Ivanka wasn't interested enough in her new job.
Since then, she says, the two have had a distant but polite friendship. She says she watched Ivanka defend her father for years.
Now Lysandra, who voted for Biden in the recent election, is speaking and says it's time to lift the veil on who her ex-girlfriend really is.
She claims, among other things, that Ivanka was charming and precocious as a teenager, which convinced adults and led them to believe she'd shaken off her father's wickedness, but was just as obsessed with money privately and struggled to hide it.
According to Lysandra, Ivanka replied, "Why should you tell me to read a book about fucking poor people?" after recommending a novel about a diner manager.

She allegedly also said: "Since when can a teacher afford a BMW?" and & # 39; Why does a police officer live in such a house? & # 39; while the two watched movies claiming they couldn't afford them in real life.
Lysandra says Ivanka talked other girls into bad behavior as well, including flashing her boobs at & # 39; the hot dog man & # 39; from the windows of her school, and then talked her way out of anger when they were caught.
“One of the earliest memories I have of Ivanka, before we were friends, is when she blamed a classmate for a fart.
Some time later, she incited me and a few other girls to flash our breasts out of our classroom window, which has since been referred to in Chapin lore as "Flashing the Hot Dog Man".
“Ivanka was basically the ringleader, but she blamed the headmistress of her innocence and got away with it.
"The rest of us have been suspended," she said.
She also claims to have spent time with the president who asked her if Ivanka was the "prettiest" girl in her class and she was stunned when she said she wasn't.
“Before I found out that the Trumps have no sense of humor, I remember answering honestly that she was probably in the top five.
"Who is prettier than Ivanka?" I remember once he asked with real confusion before properly naming the two girls I was thinking of.
Ivanka was 14 years old in 1998. Lysandra said Ivanka was the queen bee at her girls' school

Despite being no longer around, Ivanka still follows Lysandra on Instagram
"He described one as a young Cindy Crawford while the other, he said, was a great figure," she wrote.
She also describes an incident in Mar-a-Lago where Donald Trump Jr. took half of a grilled cheese sandwich off her plate.
"Ivanka scolded him, but Mr. Trump interfered:" Don't worry. She doesn't need it. He's doing her a favor. "
"Conversely, he usually congratulated me if I had lost weight," she wrote.
Lysandra says she and Ivanka stopped talking the day after Ivanka's wedding to Jared Kushner in 2009 when she was the bridesmaid
Lysandra also said that Ivanka told her she "hated" a necklace she wore with her name in Arabic and once said to her, "How does your Jewish friend feel when you have sex and this necklace hits him in the face ?
"How can you wear that thing? It just screams "terrorist". & # 39;
Lysandra claims that Jared and Ivanka tried to date her with people in their social circle and that Ivanka is generous despite her unkind words.
Their friendship ended the day after Ivanka and Jared married, she says, when she complained that Ivanka wasn't interested in her new job, and Ivanka said something to her & # 39; like & # 39; & # 39; Ly, I'm too busy for this s ** t. & # 39;
A spokeswoman for Ivanka did not immediately respond to Lysandra's claims with a comment on Tuesday morning.
Lysandra's comments are of the same nature as those of Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a woman who claims to be the first lady's former best friend.
She shared flattering footage of Melania cursing before the election.
Melania replied that she was a hook that she couldn't get rid of.
Lysandra says that now she can't forgive Ivanka for standing by her father during his presidency
